The pizza is the best item here. The dinners are average. I like the eggplant rollatini slice. The crust is nice and thin. The Margarita is also very good.

Prima is about 50/55 miles from Manhattan, and we all know the great pizzas you can find on that island! But around here, in Cornwall, and all of Orange County, this is the VERY BEST pizza I've ever had. And, if I'm honest, the best pizza I've ever had anywhere!! My favorite is the Margarita Pizza. But I always make... More

A fun and casual dining experience with a solid pizza and subs menu. Prima is a local favorite with outdoor and indoor dining, right in the cute little Cornwall, NY downtown. The only drawback is the BYOB drink situation. Not even beers???

Great pizza, good service, good value.....I have been a customer off and on for 40 years, I was friends with the owners parents years ago, since the 1970's. Unfortuneatly they are no longer alive but if they were they would be indeed proud of their son. This was a family business for over 40 years and it is still good.... More

The restaurant is nestled along Main Street in Cornwall. The interior is quirky and eclectic. There are a couple of outside tables. The staff is friendly and attentive. The salads were large and fresh. Of course, their pizza is top notch. Unlike your typical pizza. They have a wide array of specialty pizzas that they pile high with ingredients. They... More

This place needs to be on your bucket list. They have updated their outdoor furniture, which was a much better setting since last July when we were here. Great pizza and salads, which is what the family and guests had. BYOB is great; if you forget, there is a wine and spirits store up the street. Will be back on... More

A buddy recommended this for the best pizza in the area. Had the garlic knots for an app...good. Large pizzas are huge (18"). Pies were pretty good...not the best I've ever had. Crust was good. Place had a neat vibe with good outdoor seating. Would return for sure.

Cornwall New York is located just over the mountain from West Point and just south of Newburgh. It is an oasis of sorts. Prima Pizza is on the main drag and is perhaps the best place to eat in Cornwall. There isn't much seating in the cold months (about half the year) but it's cozy and the young wait staff... More
