Chicken saltimbocca was beautiful, the rest of our group had pizza and pasta and we all enjoyed our meal. Again expensive but everything is in Iceland.

The service was excellent, and the food and atmosphere was even better. They were very accommodating to us even without us having a reservation.

We were actually heading somewhere else when my wife noticed Primo, went in and glad we did. Food was superb, service was excellent too. Highly recommend.

Olive Garden would get 5 stars compared to this place. The pasta dishes we both so over cooked it could have passed as polenta. Very expensive. 2 bowls of pasta and 2 beers $135 Icelandic dollars. Definitely one to avoid. If you are Italian, run.

Fantastic lasagne and the meatballs are very good. The restaurant itself is well appointed and cost, the staff are very attentive and friendly. Meals are fairly priced (for reykjavik) and drinks are reasonable Highly recommend a visit to Primo.
