Perfectly relaxing atmosphere, food was so good. I had the chicken piccata wine baked broccoli. You can totally eat lo carb and gluten free on the menu , not feeling like you missed out on anything yummy. The service was perfect. What more could you ask for ? This was my first visit but I will be back. I Gota try that expresso martini.


This was our first visit and will not be our last. Food was excellent!

First visit was wonderful and a perfect girl's night out. We utilized call ahead seating and had zero wait for five people at 6:15 PM which was amazing! The food was delicious, I had a red fish special while others had the scampi risotto, chicken penne alfredo, filet & broccoli, and chicken piccata. The limoncello martini and sangria were also table favorites. Will be back for more date nights!


Delicious butternut squash soup, chicken piccata, and drinks!

I'd love to write about how amazing the food is here (and it is amazing and is one of our favorite spots in town and you should just get in your car and go here now) but I'm saving this review for the staff. The staff here is amazing and attentive and courteous and polite and even during a pandemic, they make you feel welcome and at home. Just be sure to give them the same level of kindness. They deserve it. Can't wait to go back!


We set out with high expectations - going early to avoid crowds.There were 4 of us. We had wanted to sit outside but there were not tables for 4 there.So, we were seated in a booth in a dark room next to the main room. Dark enough that we were forgotten by our server. My husband and myself got salads and the pasta with sausage. The salad was tasteless. I wanted to eat it with more or different dressing but no server was to be found. Our entree wasn’t good either. I couldn’t eat the huge chunks of sausage. I’d thought they would be crumbled. We were so disappointed in our meal. The only thing we enjoyed was our wine.

I love the atmosphere here and the food is some of the best in town! Super friendly and helpful servers as well.


Very impressed with our waiter and the food. We had the veal parmesean which was great! will definitely return!


Incredible service and the food was out of this world. Chase was great and I really can't thank him enough.

Delicious food and comfortable and welcoming seating. They also have a small outside seating option. Service was very friendly, although getting a refill was an extreme challenge. Even after noticing my empty glass, it took a couple of trips before the waiter actually brought a refill.


Always great food and love bubbly Tuesday's. The review


Call ahead for seating at 730, when we got there it was super busy and waited an additional 30 minutes. Nathan the owner was super apologetic about the wait and had a charcuterie waiting for us when we got to our table. Food was delicious and the wait for the food was fast. Maggie our server was super nice as well.The ciabatta bread here is amazing, and our dishes came out looking fantastic. We left full and happy, we will come back to Il Primo again!
