We used to simply love the Primi Piatti brand and over the years have spent a great deal of time and money at their various branches. In the case of Primi Lifestyle, we have watched its quality, taste, operational and value for money standards steadily decline to the point where the only reason for our last visit was to enjoy...

This restaurant is quite large with a play area which has seating inside the play area. The staff are not attentive. Order chips and no offer of any sauce, had to call for it to another waiter when someone eventually noticed my hand raised. The tables and furniture is disgustingly dirty. For a food establishment hygiene should be top priority.... More

The service was slow as there was a large party taking place upstairs at the time we arrived. The vibe was upbeat though and the food quality worth the wait. The waitrons and manager were attentive and the fancy smoothies amazing!

This restaurant offers an alternative to surrounding malls. Menu offers a variety of food with an italian flair. I had the calzone and it was tasty and a good portion size. Choose between inside, outside or upstairs tables; depending on your preference.

My sister and I were harassed and our lives threatened by the manager and the waiters after we complained about the burnt food we had been served. The manager blatantly told us that we must just accept what we got. He then proceeded to argue with us, even after we told him we were regulars at the restaurant and had... More
