Wonderful food, great service, completely cold management, the manager Giuseppe Marino asked my wife and I and my brand new inlaws to leave the resteraunt for a 9pm seating. I have never been asked to leave a resteraunt for a seating of customers that 1. Have not arrived, 2. For me not being intoxicated, 3. For a member of my party not being loud or obnoxious. Giuseppe please consider a class in manners, who will instruct you in how to mind your manners and be a pleasant person.
I recently when to this restaurant and the ambience and the food was pleasing. Candlelight dinning very romantic! They have a discounted menu Monday through Friday from 5 pm to 6 pm.
They offer a variety of main course dishes and with reasonable portions. I really like the two desserts ordered: the tiramisu and the cheesecake.

Totally disappointment!! Went there with the family for my birthday. The hostess knew we were celebrating a special occasion but couldn't care less. We tried making a reservation over the phone but were told, no reservations only first come first serve.
When we arrive we were told we would be seated in 30 -45 min. So we sat at the bar and waited............ and waited. We started seeing people being seated who had arrived after us. We only needed a table of four, so it wasn't hard to find one. The hostess kept telling us, we were next in line, but ever happened!!! He even said he had to seat reservations first. He was caught in his own lie since he had already told us they did not accept reservations.After waiting for one hour and 45 minutes, we left extremely angry and totally disappointed. DON'T GO TO PRIMA PASTA IF YOU ARE NO WILLING TO HEAVILY BRIBE $$$$$$$$ THE GUY AT THE HOSTESS TABLE TO BE SEATED. WE LATER CONFIRMED WITH FRIENDS IN THE AREA THAT THAT'S THE ONLY WAY ON HOW YOU GET A TABLE AT THIS RESTAURANT. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!! NEVER COMING BACK, FOR SURE.

Cafe Prima Pasta used to be a great place to go, however the last couple of times have been dreadful. The menu choices seemed to be fewer and what choices we did have were bland, uninteresting and cold. We won't be going back again all we got for our money was bad food and mediocre service.

The first time I went to this restaurant will be my last. The photos of the rich and famous covering the walls were impressive. The food was not. The bread brought to us was not fresh. We sent it back and got more of the same. We ordered veal parmesan. The veal portion was generous but tasted very greasy. It came with a very small portion of penne pasta. My date ordered Caesar salad, which did not come with anchovies. The waitress was nice enough to make a special request for them. The salad arrived, practically dry romaine lettuce, with two (no kidding) anchovies. We had the tiramisu for dessert and it was, in our opinion, way too mushy. While the atmosphere and service was good, I would not recommend this restaurant for good Italian fare.
