“Excellent service, food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We were excited to try Cafe Prima based on the reviews on tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. The service was some of the best we have ever had. Andreu was outstanding and took great care of us. If you're lucky enough to get Andreu as your waiter, you'll have a great experience. He recommended the Fiocci Rapera, and was absolutely right. It was fantastic. Delicious, and unique. We would definitely recommend it, and this restaurant!

“Best food, Best service, BEST OF THE BEST!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We have been in Miami for 2 weeks. Ate out almost every day, and could not find a great place until we stumbled on Prima Pasta.

If I could give them 6 stars......I would!!!

Superb quality, excellent service, extremely nice decor, very tasty food, vast variety of Italian dishes.

Giuseppe Marino made us feel very warm and welcome, and of course we are coming back again for dinner!!!

WAY TO GO GUYS!

“The best Italian restaurant in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We live in Miami Beach, and we walk at least 3 times a week, and always pass in front of the Cafe Prima Pasta. It is always full, any time, any day of the week! So, we decided to try it out, and see why it is always so crowded. Now we know!!! The food is just great, and the personnel, including the manager, servers, busboys, is the nicest we've ever seen! The ambiance is happy, relaxed, and even funny. Our server Andreu and his helper from Argentina (sorry, I forgot to ask his name!) were fantastic, the best!!! They even talked to us in Portuguese, as we are from Brazil, and of course we made fun about the World Cup! We will never forget this experience, and we will certainly come back!!! Muito obrigada a vocês, Andreu e o nosso amigo argentino!!! Até breve!!!

“Do NOT miss this restaurant if you are in Miami Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were in town for business and found this great local restaurant. The service by Loretha and Jose was fantastic as was the food. I highly recommend that Pasta Special with shrimp and mussels, the best I've ever had. The atmosphere was so relaxed and we never felt rushed although the place was very busy. We thoroughly loved our experience and will defiantly return on our next visit! They really understand the concept of a great dining experience to have great food, service and atmosphere. We enjoyed every minute. Thank you Café Prima Pasta! I would say this is a great place for date night, family night and meeting with business colleagues.
