This restaurant is now my top restaurant in leeds.
Service with a smile.
Nothing is too much for these guys.
They even give u a taster if you are not sure what to order and it's a good portion too to get a real taste.
Everything was perfect here.
Service is something I watch out for because it's what industry I'm in atm and these lot have got it spot on.
We will see you guys again!

We returned to this restaurant on a Saturday evening. This time there were three of us. They were much busier than last time but the quality of food and the service was still excellent. We were not rushed or hurried and when we went to sit in the bar after eating we were given strawberries, chocolates and small biscuits to finish off our evening.

Bank holiday visit and what a lovely experience. Second visit and as good as the first. Shared pizza to start, house white wine, pasta with fish and pasta with Italian sausage. Superb. Excellent service and at £53, great value.

Primo regularly comes up high on the ratings in terms of Italian restaurants in Leeds. Thought I would try this for a friend's birthday.
Service was quick, pleasant and efficient if a little impersonal. The owner/manager was lovely and did come over at dessert time and was very charming.
In terms of the food, very good quality and flavours, mussels could have been a little warmer but this more due to a slight delay in one of the other starters arriving which meant they cooled a little. Seabass dish that my friend and I chose was beautiful, the flavours rich and deep. The beef tartare and tuna loin ordered by her husband equally as impressive.

The desserts were beautiful, excellent quality pannacotta and cheesecake, true Italian desserts at their best. The only thing with Primo which is not the fault of staff, can be the atmosphere, due to the high ceilings and large open space can seem a little cold. Nice decor though and I know the lunchtime trade with local business is always busy. Food definitely good enough to return. Not at all disappointed with a good evening.

Well what can I say. .... The service, The food was amazing!!! The waiters knew exactly how to treat a customer, attentive and knew their stuff. The food was authentic and gorgeous, I love Italian and this is 1 of the best I have been to for ages. I am a hard customer to please as am very picky as I work in the food industry. I would recommend this restaurant 4 * plus!!!
