“Birthday Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Amazing food at a very reasonable price. Andreu (waiter) and Jose (Busser) were hilarious and very kind at work. This was my mother's birthday dinner and she enjoyed it tremendously. They even gave us all complimentary champagne to celebrate!
I highly recommend this Cafe Prima Pasta for its amazing food, staff, and atmosphere. I will definitely return during my next trip to Miami Beach!

“Great Pasta!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

We picked this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews. We went there at 5 pm and we were seated immediately. They have their own parking lot which is quite convenient. I loved how cozy the place is. The walls were covered by photos of celebrities who dined there. The service was top notch and did not reflect the price point of the menu. I would not recommend this place of you have younger kids unless you go very early like we did. Between 5-6 pm they offer a reduced price menu for most of regular priced items. Some entrees like veal and certain pastas are not included in this offer. We had beef carpaccio and bruschetta to start with. Both were excellent (needed some extra salt on most dishes though). I had the black pasta with seafood. You get very generous portions and lots of seafood with it. It was so fresh and delicious. My husband had one of the veal plates and it was also great. We also tried the salmon with linguini and the grilled talipia with penne; all delicious. For deserts we had pineapple sorbet, tiramisu and apple tart. The sorbet was really good but the two other deserts were average. We really enjoyed the restaurant and we would definitely return again.

“The best Italian food in town and at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

The best time to eat at this excellent restaurant saving an average of 40% over regular dinner price is between 5pm and 6pm Monday to Saturday and Sunday's 4pm to 5pm. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Second time eating at Cafe Prima Pasta and it was better than the first time. My wife and excellent cook, likes it very much and it is difficult to find great restaurants that satisfies her, but this one is a great one. Try the tiramissue dessert it is wonderful.
