Excellent food and drinks. If you have never been I highly recommend. I plan on going back soon.
Caesar salad was amazing, octopus very good but to small a portion, needed some crispy potatoes instead of only tomatoes. Carpaccio was also very good. Lamb shank was good but something was missing. Service was not good. Busboys and bread service were good, waiter very slow. Took 30 minutes to place our appitizer order. Food came out timely but waiter never showed up for main course order and had to order from bus boy.
Good dining experience given the circumstances. Food was well prepared, yet very slow to make it to the table. The service was a little shaky as well, with the staff seemingly overwhelmed by the amount of added responsibility and poorly paced seating.
6 outside tables and more downstairs. Felt safe, service was fine and the food is as good as it always was.
I LOVE Primo - it's always been a welcome place to have dinner, have date night with my husband, have a private party in one of the banquet rooms...the food is amazing. The lasagne is wonderful...the bechamel sauce make it incredible, the delicate layers of pasta, with the flavorful bolognese sauce. I have a hard time trying anything else if we go there. But also try the Branzino, the grilled octopus starter (so delicious with roasted tomatoes, olives and onions!), and the tapenade served with the bread. From start to finish, the meals are wonderful. And during COVID, they seat you on the open air patio outside which is lovely, and still cozy and quaint. Thanks, Lou for a wonderful time, every time! Can't wait until things are back to normal and we can dine inside the beautiful restaurant again!
Food very tasty and nicely presented. Had the fried calamari, and the divine gnocchi. Main courses were linguine w/ white clam sauce, filet mignon and chicken parm with a Caesar. Dessert chocolate terrine. Lovely ambiance and attentive service. One of the finest restaurants in the Torrance area. It’s a destination to keep coming back to. Menu is creative and offers many choices.
It was great!!! Awesome food and great service, waiters super professional
We really enjoyed finding this restaurant it’s been there for a long time and we’ve never been. A beautiful night on the patio really enjoyed it!
Went for our wedding anniversary. Fist time here. We ate outside. Covid separated tables. The food lived up to the restaurant name. Cocktails were strong. Wife had pasta with rabbit and I had pasta with wild boar ragu. Chocolate terrine for desert. Staff was attentive and friendly. I will go back and refer our friends.
So happy we found this restaurant while visiting the area. The staff were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable of their menu. The artichoke appetizer is not to be missed. The pesto ravioli was light and delicious. We look forward to returning when we are in the South Bay area.
Fresh and creative dishes! Great menu and service - have come back multiple times and always have been very satisfied.
Restaurant has done a nice job setting up outdoor seating during the pandemic.
Only thing that could have made it better is if Lou was singing!
Everything was lovely but I do miss sitting inside as the ambience and music make it more special!
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE ... honestly one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Juan our server was incredible, the food was spectacular and Lou the owner was so personable and has the most amazing stories. We are forever regulars and this is a experience I highly recommend.
We had a great time with our Friends and made some new one's while we were there.
I have been coming here for several years and I had my 50th Birthday here. Many Italian Restaurant choices out there but this is by far my favorite Italian Restaurant in the Southbay. Being an Italian from the CT and lived in New York, who also cooks all the traditional Italian dishes at home you want to take a break and enjoy some of the other great Italian cooks and restaurants. This is why I love Primo Italia, everything is made with love and it makes me happy to know they are so close to me. LOL!
The food is excellent, their pasta is fresh, the sauce is perfectly seasoned, great fresh fish and meats, the service is amazing and the wine selections are very good with some nice Italian wine choices.
Here are some of the reasons why I come here as often as I do. Some of my favorites.
•The Polpettine very delicious!
•The fried Calamari is excellent. You may want to order two.
•The Porchetta was so amazing
•Primo Lasagna. WOW!
•Pappardelle con Cinghiale. My wife’s favorite
•Ossobuco di Agnello Excellent
•Branzino con Carciofi. My favorite fish!!
•Tiramisu, They make it just like Mom. So Fresh and creamy!
Robert. Your review and kind words is why we do what we do. Thank you. -Lou
The best Italian in the South Bay. Love love love everything about Primi Italiano
Great ambiance. Food was very good and the wait staff were on it.
We made the reservation and arrived to them turning us away since the kitchen was closed.
Great small quiet place.
My wife and I love to eat at Primo’s! Last week was the first time since the covid shutdown in March. The food is still excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing. We felt completely safe dining on the patio and look forward to our next visit.
Great night. Well done outdoor dining under the Covid dilemma.
Primo’s turned it’s patio seating into a great outdoor dining experience. Hope its stays like it is setup for the lovely weather.😁.
The outdoor seating was great!
Love this place. Love this place. Love this place.
EXCELLENT FOOD AS ALWAYS, GREAT SERVICE AND AMBIANCE.
Fantastic food and service. Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants on the South Bay.
Very nice foods. Good value. Same service compare to in-room dining.
Lovely evening outside. No breeze & temperature was perfect.
Mark our waiter decanted at 2006 Cab from Napa Valley that was just right for enjoying.
Our favorite restaurant close to PVE.
Despite having advised the owner I was there to celebrate my birthday at his establishment he’s hyped up it was beyond disappointing. Besides not doing anything nice on top of the less than mediocre food was not classy at all. The food lacked proper seasoning and found myself ordering different spices to spruce up our meal.
The owner was too busy doing who knows what instead of speaking with the very few patrons he had there. I did notice he was paying special attention to his “rich friends” but didn’t pay the rest of us any mind. I will not be going back again nor will I recommend anyone attend this place.
Didn't know about getting charged a COVID fee.
Was quite expensive. 1 sea bass, 1 lasagna, 1 salad and 1 bottle of wine=$150 with all fees.
The food was great and the service was wonderful. The outside seating was really great.
Always great food!!
Bruce was excellent in his recommendations. Look forward to next time!
Nice evening...outside dining was very comfortable!
Everything was perfect just one thing I didn’t like how confusing it is to get to the restaurant and parking.
Casual or formal, best Italian restaurant in the area.
Patio dining due to the virus; a little windy. Outstanding food & service made it a memorable evening.
