“A local Italian Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2011

A colleague and I went here for lunch. This used to be the old Pasta Pomodoro but I don’t know if they were related. The complimentary bread was OK but the pesto sauce that came with it was tasty. I had the fettuccine alfredo from the lunch menu and my cow-orker had the verdure. We enjoyed both our dishes. The alfredo sauce was prepared well, no bitter aftertaste. Service was good and we didn’t have to wait. The restaurant is nice physically, in an upscale mall. No coupons or offers, my friend checked in on foursquare to see. So 4 dots, we would go back but it didn’t knock our socks off but more authentic than Maggiano's, which is in the same center.

“A definite "I'll be back"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

This little Bistro has it all. A patio made cozy with drop down privacy curtains, a dining area with or without TV. The owners are hands on in this business starting with warmly greeting the client, overseeing food preparation, service, selection and thanking the client upon departure for sharing their dining experience.

The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. They also offer a value 3 course dinner for $19.99 that includes a glass of wine. We ordered one of those and an item from the regular menu. The food was outstanding, freshly prepared and the quantities were generous. In these tough economic times many restaurants are cutting back on quality and quantity but not Pasta Primo. This was a purely enjoyable experience from start to finish.

I am looking forward to my next dining experience there and becoming a regular.
