The staff at Primi Caffe are some of the friendliest and most attentive I've found in South Africa. The food is always fresh and tasty, but truly it is the service and the terrific attention the staff give to kids that keeps us coming back. The service is often a reflection on how the staff is treated by management, and... More

Dear 657Michael Thank you for the review. The staff you mention have been trying really hard in this store which trades in a highly competitive environment, so it's great for them to receive acknowledgement from you. The quick service restaurant industry is the one sector of the economy that can drive growth and employment, and with Primi Piatti our policy... More

As you walk in you get a great welcome from the staff and there is always someone at the door to greet you warmly. You can feel everyone that works there enjoys what they do and the management Kenny and Munashi are absolutely awesome and make you feel like part of the family. Food is always quick and super yummy!!

I stopped in for a quick lunch. The waitress was friendly and quick to take my order. I ordered Halumi vegetable wraps which looked nothing like the photo on the menue. The Halumi slices were paper thin and the cos lettuces were the dark green and hard with dried up edges. There were greasy fingerprints right round my plate and... More

The food is the standard expected at Primi, but the service is not too great. Waited to be seated and the waiters just pass you without acknowledging that they will attend to you. By the time you are shown to a table (in what was a fairly empty restaurant), the waiter disappears. If it was not for the great food,... More

Very expensive for what you get. Service was good. Food portions small for what you are paying and over rated.

Salad R56 extra R20 to add chicken... The actual salad leaves were huge and full of (bug eaten) holes. I asked to have the dressing on the side - they still put it on. We asked for a glass of wine - we were given a bottle. Unfortunately there arent that many places to eat before the movies. I guess... More

Whenever we go to blueroute on the weekends it's never a question which restaurant we will be going to for lunch. The only question is which of the delicious meals will we chose from. I often go for my favourite, the California pizza, avo, feta and Bacon. It's one of the best in Cape Town, and believe me, I've tried... More
