This is a great little Italian restaurant. We all had something different. I had the Stromboli and it is one of the best I have ever had. One of people I was with had the Steak Calzone and she talked about how delicious it was. The subs are huge. This is a great little family restaurant.

We love Primos! They have really good pizza and great subs but the top reason we visit is the Garlic Knots! They are amazing! Staff is friendly and it's always clean also! Recommending...

two very good experiences in the past month - Love the calzone - a small is big enough for t leftovers to take-home. another favorite is eggplant parmesan. the cooks here are superior and understand how to prepare the dishes I suspect all dishes are similarly high quality. very friendly and efficient wait-staff

I am not a big pasta fan (my daughter is), but Primos has excellent options for people who are not traditional Italian dish fans. Don't get me wrong, their Italian food is VERY good, but their other options are excellent as well. The grilled chicken sub is amazing as are the chicken wings (best deal in town and really tasty...

Absolutely astounding food! Great Greek salad with enormous portions. Calzones are to die for! Stop and try because you will love it

My favorite is the eggplant parmesan, but it is all so good! In fact, I would prefer it over Olive Garden 10 to 1.

We really love going here, they have great food and friendly staff. Prices are a bit higher than fast food Italian, but it's generous serving sizes and better to support local establishment!

Are usually get the angel hair spaghetti marinara or the Brooklyn Bridge pizza but anything you get here you absolutely cannot go wrong. Primos is one of the best places in the whole entire area by far. the owners are absolutely wonderful people and I cherish this place!

We just started eating Primos last year. I must say we have been missing out on a lot of awesome food. The service is great and prices are too. Very clean and comfy and its byob and they make sure you get a frosty mug and refrigate your beer.

This is not a fancy place, but a great place to go with friend and have a great meal. The food is good, and the desserts are also out of this world. It's nice to visit a restaurant that knows about service. This place knows how to treat you.
