When you have a large party, there is nothing that beats a good, round table for full conversation with your friends and guests. Prima Pasta not only has fantastic food, wonderful service and a bustling atmosphere. It offers a place where you can have fun, laugh lots and leisurely enjoy your dinner and your company.

No doubt, it is the best Italian food restaurant in Miami Beach! The quality has not changed in years. Traditional dishes and daily specials. Mouth watering appetizers, entrees and desserts. Vegetarian options, delicious drinks. Service very attentive! Booking a must! Cozy bar, nice outdoor dining or indoors seating. Highly recommended! Will always be my first option!

They do a great job.....their prices are reasonable but not as ridiculously inexpensive as when they first opened! They were smart to be so well priced in the beginning however the quality of the food and service is still a... More

Good food, nice environment to go with friends and families. They have wine from different countries. We were 6 adults and we all ate different plates and the bill was $400 with the tip. But you can eat for less money too.
