“Prima Pasta is an old favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We have been coming to this quaint, off the beaten track restaurant on 71st and Collins forever. It has never disappointed. The pasta is home made and you can't beat that. Even my kids love it, and they are hard to please. As a Realtor in the Miami market, I have brought tons of out of towners and clients to this eatery, and none have had a bad meal. Hard to say that anywhere in Miami. This is a definite go, but make reservations, or be prepared to wait!

“Amazing food and staff !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The food and the atmosphere is fantastic. All the staff are polite especially our waitress Virginia who was amazing. Try the pudding as they are homemade and delicious. It is easy to find, has a parking lot at the side and indoor/outdoor seating.

“Best Italian Meal and Homemade Cheesecake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

I'm Italian and grew up with great food. Cafe Prima Pasta hits it out the park with authentic Italian cuisine. The bread and tricolore salad with arugula, radicchio and Parm cheese were okay. But my main entree was amazing!!! I had Fiocchi Rapera, a homemade pasta filled with cheese, pear and topped with roasted prosciutto and truffle sauce. A perfect ending was the homemade cheesecake ... the best I've ever had!! Our waitress and waiters worked like a well oiled machine ... warm, friendly and efficient. You could tell by the framed celeb pics and old Italian charm that Cafe Prima Pasta is a favorite.

“Our server Christian Fernandez was amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I went to Prima Pasta with two friends of mine, it was our first time at Cafe Prima. I must say the food was delicious and the prices were very cheap! Amazing, but what made this experience beyond great for us.. was the service. Our server was so great! Super friendly and had us laughing the whole time. We will definitely be back, so we can have Christian as a server! One of the best lunch experiences I've had in a while!
