A Primi Piatti is a Primi Piatti. Except when you're at the Waterfront. The drinks and menu is fairly standard, but there's a nice atmosphere unusual for a chain restaurant. While it can't boast any Waterfront views, the restaurant is spacious with friendly and attentive...More

We went with friends and had a lovely meal but must say that the service was slow and that we had to remind the staff several times about our order. Great pasta dishes at reasonable prices.

They made the pizza exactly as I like it and were extremely accommodating. We spent R300 including drinks and tips for 2 people and I think that is very reasonable. Would come back again for sure

I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Primi. The ambiance was way better than I had imagined. We had to wait about 15 minutes to get a table but that was our fault. We had not made a reservation and the restaurant was quite...More

We stopped by Primi for an early lunch because of our tour schedule, about 11:30, and could not get the fresh tuna dish yet because they were still using THAT grill for breakfast. So disappointed, we ordered a calzone and my friend ordered a pasta...More
