I had a great appetizer to start off the dinner. The marinara sauce with toast was great. But the real pleasure was the pork scallopini. I had the same dish in an Italian restaurant in Manhattan. Primo was just as good if not better. Lots...More

Great Italian restaurant in North Chattanooga. The menu doesn't include much in the way of veal dishes which was a little disappointing...but what we ordered was excellent. Portions are about right....not the gigantic size of family-style places. The service was fabulous and prices reasonable. You...More

I am often adverse to eating at an Italian restaurant. I love Italian cuisine, but frankly I can cook it pretty well myself. So to me a great Italian restaurant must have outstanding food quality and freshness, an interesting ambiance, and excellent service. Il Primo...More

Recently visited with some girlfriends. We split several of the appetizers. The arancini (rice balls) were amazing. We all ordered different entrees, and we were all super happy with what we got. I had the scallops and risotto, and the scallops were some of the...More

Eat at the bar, or sit at a table, the food is delicious, the service is friendly and upbeat, and the open atmosphere is great. One of our favorite restaurants, and by far the best Italian.
