This place is for locals and waiting to be discovered. OMG. I've been coming here for a while but have never made the time to review our local phenomenons. The food is extraordinary . The price is ridiculously reasonable . The service is beyond comparison . The leeche martinis are the bomb. Had the carpaccio manso which is beyond comparison.... More

Busy, noisy, loud and boisterous. Line-ups, waits and cramped. Sounds bad, Not At All! It's Italian and just like what else would you should expect from a popular restaurant serving large portions of good food at good prices. Servers are load, involved and engaging yet efficient and friendly. Food was generous, authentic and tasty. Cramped quarters, dark and heavy decor,... More

My boyfriend and I found this place based on Yelp reviews. We wanted something a little more intimate to celebrate his birthday and this place was definitely what I wanted. When we arrived, the staff was super friendly and we only waited about 10 minutes for a table. I had ordered the Gnocchi Fromaggi, while my boyfriend had the Crab... More

Decoration is great like an old trattoria full of pictures on the wall. Food is really great and very fair price. Very friendly atmosphere. For my surprise, it's not an Italian restaurant, the owners are argentines. I do recommend!

Went to this restaurant because of a recommendation from our hotel concierge. We walked in and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The service was perfec andt the food was amazing.

Yes Prima Pasta is a nice neighbourhood restaurant , but that is all. The food is average but expensive, and in my opinion not special as some would have believe. The place itself is welcoming and has a nice atmosphere, service is friendly and reasonably efficient, but the food is disappointing for the prices being charged. We started with a... More

As delicious as expected, maybe even a little bit more. I have an uncle who regularly drives down from Ft Lauderdale just for this grub, so the bar was set a bit higher than it normally is when I try a new spot. All the classics, phenomenal homemade pasta. Nice decor inside, has that European feel. Our waiter, Frank, was... More
