“It's the Food and the People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We are from out of town - my wife found Cafe Prima Pasta online. Four of us hosted a wedding rehearsal party for 50 people. Salad was beautiful greens, purple, and colored veggies. Great veal and fish with light sauces for entree. Very nice tiramisu and cannoli for dessert. Staff was personable and professional. Our guests were from USA, Canada and South Africa - they were all delighted with the evening. Overall - delicious food, beautifully presented. Excellent quality but also down to earth. The locals seem to love it, it was rather busy. Giuseppe, the manager, took care of everything for us.

Great food, great value, great service! The best carpaccio I've had in years. We tried "happy hour" menu, and it was fabulous.

“Exquisite food...exceptional service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is my fave Italian restaurant in MB hands down! We've been many times, always trying something different on the menu. Specials are always quite good. Great seafood, veal, pastas. Tonight's service stood out because of Johnny our waiter. Very friendly, attentive and accommodating without being overbearing. I love their signature finish of meringues and a shot of sambuca. Grazie Johnny! See you in the New Year.

“Excellent as Usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Shrimp Scampi was excellent. I was nervous that the lemon was going to overpower it but It was spot on yummy.Potatoes and spinich also excellent. Our waiter Johnny was really great and made us feel really welcome and you can tell he (and the whole staff) really cares and wants to do everything they can to ensure you have a great experience. We love cafe Prima Pasta thats why we keep going back its always great food and awesome service.
