Description: Primi food is fresh and fast, comforting and healthy, inspired by Italian tradition but influenced by the cosmopolitan present. Every menu item is cooked from scratch using only the freshest and finest sourced ingredients.

We visited the restaurant on the "spur of the moment", having eaten in their other establishments in the Western Cape.

There is not much of a view, but although busy the service was good and the food was tasty.

The large cuppuccino arrives in a conical cup I refer to as a "jacuzzi of coffee" really good coffee and overall experience.

Part of a franchise, food is nice but you can find better if you look around. I don't think you should be eating much Italian food in Cape Town anyway or visiting the Waterfront at all. Tourist trap with no endearing qualities.

I've been to Primi in the waterfront many times. Though service is not that great, and the waitresses aren't very accommodating. Perhaps it caters more toward the tourist crowd. Being a local I was a bit disppoint on that front. But amazing views, food was good.

I love Primi!!! I love the food and the cocktails... It has one awesome Bisteca (t.bone with fries), seared salmon, the dag wood burger (beef), are all great... The staff is generally very friendly and competent, but sometimes they can be very lazy... It is a good restaurant and the prices are also good.
