“Excellent Pasta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

If you like Pasta in the ' Italian Style then Primi Piatti is the place to visit. Well located on the central strip right opposite the (justifiably ) World Class Camps Bay beach . Primi delivers world class Italian Fare to your table with a smile ! Add to that legendary salads / great deserts and you will understand why it's a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike

“Very Good...after Very Bad......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I've been a regular at Primi Piatti in Campsbay over the years but in the last year or so, stopped going there because of the bad service , extremely loud and bad music and the general atmosphere that seemed to be more of a hurry we need the table kinda place. We went for breakfast a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised by the new Staff and New Management around and clearly that made a worlds of difference. Prompt and very Friendly service greeted us, even the manager came around to say good morning.....we tried Dinner a few days later and it seems its finally out of the slump they were in!! Keep up the Good work and Pleasant Service.....

“Perfection morning noon and night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

6 of us were introduced to Primi Piatti by vouchers from the dump, Camps Bay Resort. The vouchers were the best thing about CBR. We ended up eating at Primi Piatti several times over the week.

PP is casual dining at its best. The staff was superb. Our waiter, the "Leon of Kings" was the best. In fact Primi Piatti went out of its way to make sure we were happy, to the point, they opened up 15-30 minutes early so we could drink coffee and eat before heading out to enjoy Capetown.

The food is not haute cuisine. It is closer to Denny's for breakfast and Pizza hut for supper than it is to cuisine. The staff elevates the experience.

If you're up for a neighborhood joint, Primi Piatti fills the bill.

“Italian theme Quick Food Franchise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Filling and OK value. Family and Child friendly. Not as expensive as the rest of the strip but beware the pre-theatre dinner rush !!
One of the few restuarants in Camps Bay that run proper specials.
Beware Village and Life group gives guests breakfast vouchers for meals here so be warned if you plan breakfast there.
Friendly management and efficient staff when they can cope! Fairly consistent meals across the primi restuarant franchise group. Excellent Pizzas, Pastas. Big Hamburgers. Great Fries. They deliver too. Good place to go if you are hungry and not wanting to spend a fortune.
