For my American counterparts - primi is a hybrid between TGI Fridays and Olive Garden. That's the best way I can think of to describe it.
The food is average - but don't expect high quality or innovation. Their pizzas are better than their pastas. The pastas are very oily , and loaded with excess cream and sauces. Of course this is an attempt to hide that the pasta isn't fresh made.
The desserts are ok - but I find them overly decadent. For example - the half portion of the brownie comes with a wedge slice of brownie - covered in a chocolate sauce , a huge scoop of ice cream , drizzled in chocolate sauce , and the plate is dusted in cocoa. The chocolate cappuccino is a half hot chocolate - half cappuccino. It comes in a mug that can only be described as a deep soup bowl with a handle.
Again it's just overkill hiding the lower quality ingredients.
Now the good stuff - This primi has an amazing uninterrupted view of table mountain and robbed island. It's across the street from the beach. That alone gives reason to visit it at least once - although I prefer it for drinks as opposed to dinner.
The wait staff are trained to always look busy - and high energy - but they tend to be lacking in attentiveness too.
All in all - it's just an ok spot to eat at but nothing to write home about.
