Prima Pasta offers a relatively simple European menu but we could not fault the quality of the food, everyone had 2 or 3 courses and all were very good. Service was good and prices more than reasonable.

Welcomed this excellent trattoria on its opening night 14 years ago, and have not been disappointed at any time since. The menu, and the prices, have barely changed since, although a torch helps to see the varied choices of pizza and pasta. Portions are generous...More

Smart Shorts are fine. The place is rustic, rather than fine dining. We always enjoy going there. We were in the company of a famous Welsh lady singer and here family, when we went there once.
