Had a pre- theatre dinner there, and despite it being in the midst of sophisticated Camps Bay, it was one of the worst meals I've ever had. Tasteless food, boring menu, and uninteresting menu choice. Very dated and scruffy decor. Needs a revamp of decor and food

The restaurant is situated on the 1st floor at Century City, the waiters were very good and caring, the food was just great. Their wine range was not the best, I was lucky to find one that is not on the menu. With the good food they served Lamb cuts for me and Lamb shank for my friend a matching... More

My friend suggested that we go to Primi against my judgement. Our waitress was so kind and patient with my picky friends. Food was also great. Will definitely be back

Terrible experience. We were hungry and wanted to eat pasta. Their site said they closed at 11pm. We arrived at 10.30 and the waiter closed the door in our faced and turned the sign from open to closed. She refused to let us in.

We were a party of eight people, experienced a warm welcome and got a cosy corner in the restaurant. Excellent dinner and nice smiles from the waitress. Good white wine and large desserts.

After a very long walk in search of breakfast, and the disaster of leaving another more highly rated but wildly incompetent restaurant, we were warmly welcomed at Primi Piatti. The youngest in our group simply hinted at cheese pizza and within minutes our waiter, Abo, delivered one to our surprise and the boy's delight! Menu choices are vast and creative... More

Came here on a tues evening and it was quite quiet. Only a few people eating when we were there but it was very close to where we were staying so convenient for us. Our waitress was very friendly and talkative. I had the chicken scallopini in a mushroom sauce with linguini and this was very good. My son had... More

Popped in here for a quick meal and we where pleasantly surprised. A South African chain that does a solid job or simple Italian foods. Standout for us was the pan fried calamari.

Prior to going to the Theatre I went to the Primi Piatti for a quick meal. Excellent friendly staff and great service. The food was excellent but the chocolate brownie was even better.

During our previous visit to Primi we found the food decent enough and vibe ok... This changed when we made the decision to try them for a early dinner... The food had a funny taste and when we complained the waiter took the food away and return, notifying us the manager had tried it and nothing was wrong?!!... We couldn't... More

Primi_Management, Regional Manager at Primi Piatti, responded to this review

Dear Sean Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our Camps Bay store. I must confess that I am uncertain as to how we can resolve a complaint about a dish tasting "funny" without tasting it ourselves. I note in your review that despite the manager's assessment that the dish was fine, we took the dish off... More
