We have been to Primi's about 5 times now since moving to St. Pete and have also patronized the other local Italian restaurants both high end and basic. For us, Primi's is the best of the bunch--and we take our Italian very seriously having lived...More

Perfect meal! My husband and I had a wonderful meal and really enjoyed our waiter Nick. My husband is a vegetarian and had a pasta dish that Nick suggested. I had the chicken piccata. We scraped our plates clean. We plan to go back again...More

It was close to my hotel so I stopped by. There was only one other table occupied (a Tues night) , and it appeared they were either friends or related to the owner. I sat at the bar to have dinner. Very limited menu, but...More

The Klenke Family has taken over Primi, and all we can say is - HOLD ONTO YOUR HAT! This snazzy indoor/outdoor eatery has long been a downtown favorite. But now that Klenke enlisted an extraordinary kitchen staff to fine tune the menu, locals and out-of-towners are converging in record numbers. How have patrons weighed in thus far? Wrote one, "It’s such a joy when you find a restaurant that you want to go to every day..." And another enamored diner had this to say, "Primi is a fantastic local place that I will frequent again, and it is very reasonably priced...You could easily spend something comparable or more at a cookie-cutter chain -- but in the end, a place like Primi is a much more rewarding experience." Indeed, it is. For lunch, the Chicken Feta Roast Pepper Panini, House Salad and Pasta Dishes come highly recommended. For dinner, the Beef Carpaccio or Black Mussels in white wine ... Don't forget to ask for the home made deserts: Tiramisu' , Creme Brulee'...& more!
