When was the last time you were seated at 1845 in a restuarant and left at 2245 having had great Italian food. Staff are friendly and efficient but you are not rushed and you can sit and chat without being pressured to leave. Starters, main and desert were all excellent. Oh and try the Irish coffee.

I can't recommend Primo Piano highly enough! I love Italian food it's long been my 'go to' when we're out for dinner: and having done the 'let's try somewhere new' many times in the past we'd exhausted the options and always ended up the same - disappointed. Not with Primo - it's consistently superb, the atmosphere is always relaxed and... More

I recently dined here (a party of four) and once again was delighted with the service, the menu, the food and the atmosphere. All the serving staff are young and they are attentive, pleasant and eager to make sure everything is to the diners satisfaction. I would recommend this establishment to locals and visitors alike. You can be assured of... More

What a fabulous experience! There were 6 of us, grandparents, parents and 2 wee ones, for Christmas lunch. The food was sublime from soup to sweets! 2 adults had turkey (just delicious!) and 2 had fillet steak (wonderful, I'm told). The wee ones had a small (?.......not so small!) portion of turkey and trimmings and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.... More

Phoned very late for a booking on a Saturday evening. As long as you come along quickly we will fit the 5 of you in was the answer. Duly turned up 20 minutes later and as always we were very well looked after. Food was superb as was the service and the bill at the end very reasonable. What more... More

Lovely place with a good set menu. Service was lovely and it was such a lovely part of our small break in Dumfries and Galloway.The owner went round asking everyone if they were enjoying their meal which was a nice touch. A memorable evening.

Small menu but excellent for fish lovers and good vegetarian options too. Peroni beer on draught and good value house wines and other wines. Service excellent and lively atmosphere. If I'm having a private party this is where I want it to be.
