The worst service

The manager did not acknowledge us when we got there only after the bus boy did that he turn around and acknowledge our presence. We sat and 15 min pass by and no waiter came to take our order. Only after we ask the bus boy to call the waiter that this female waiter came with an attitude very non chalant she took our order and did not mention the specials. That was the last time she came to our table because she s... view more

Hidden Gem

Primitivo is one of the ""best deals in town."" The dinner menu featured a host of several small plates ""prepared to order"" perfect for those who wish to try several items to fully plated entrees, a la carte specialties and an assortment of other side dishes. My two favorite small plates were the marinated meatballs in basil pesto and wine, and the soft polenta with sweet sausage and wild mixed mushrooms...ABSOLUTE... view more

An Affordable Cut Above the Rest

I have been dining at Primitivo since it opened, and it has only gotten better over the years. In fact, it is one of my favorite places to eat for several reasons. First, and foremost, the food is excellent. My favorite dish is the lemon chicken, which is on the lunch menu. Second, the atmosphere is inviting and casual. They recently did a nice job remodeling the interior of the restaurant. Third, the servers a... view more

My old fav is my new fav!

So, I've been going to Primitivo since it opened. The staff always made me feel welcome.. & are a bit flirty, which we love!, & the food & wine ~it's always an awesome evening! In the last year or so it was starting to feel a bit stodgy, you know, same ol same o, & not working with the excitement of the neighborhood... Well! How excited was I on my last visit! The decor is all new, all the stodgness is gone! & they'r... view more

Go here only if you're on a diet

This place was terrible. AVOID. AVOID. AVOID. I ordered a mozzarella/prosciutto appetizer for $14, and when it arrived, I received 3 small slices of mozzarella, two thin slices of prosciutto, and 3 slices of tomatoes. The pasta dishes are around $16, and when my meal arrived, my food was served in a huge dish, and I received a child's size portion. I've never had a huge appetite, and usually I have leftovers af... view more

Boring Menue

This restaurant used to be GREAT. BUT, they changed the menu and raised the prices and made the portions smaller. It is now just a common everyday Restaurant. The food is still terrific, but not worth the money. It would have been all right if they raised their prices, but to raise the prices, make the portions one third the size is ridiculous. Also, all the favorites are off the menu. Now everything is al la c... view more

Great Stuff

Primitivo is simply an excellent choice for Italian food in the West Village. They have very good prices, a nice wine selection and down to earth people who work there. I'd definitely go back again.

very nice

had a dinner for 6 here. It was early so it wasn't very crowded, but the place is very nice inside, staff is friendly. Attentive, fine service. The chicken parm is very good, as was the mozzerella tomato basil app and ceaser salad. We had made arrangements for the bill to be paid beforehand, providing them with a credit card before dinner, but they seemed to be confused by that, and we had to get up from the table to... view more

Very good rustic italian pizza

Best rustic pizza, antipast, salads we have found. We had a large party all from out of town and they were very accomodating and responsive to email questions. The specials were exceptional
