we celebrate our heritage
For generations our families have celebrated the tastes of life around a dinner table, enjoying our tradition of homemade pastas, sauces, vino, e dolci -- and we want to invite you to participate in that culinary heritage. Italian tradition is relived as we reminisce about the past and create new memories, and every meal brings family and friends closer together with lively conversation and laughs. Chef Santi and our team are passionate about Italian cooking and its deep history. He has created a rich, abundant menu using local purveyors and fine ingredients in making homemade pastas, wood-fired pizzas, and Mediterranean fish dishes.
From the region of Campania, home of the Amalfi Coast and Naples, to the island of Sicily, we bring you the heart and soul of our roots, tradition and cuisine. From the moment you walk in, we invite you to be transported -- as our family photos illustrate our colorful past, and our menu expresses our living cuisine.
At Primo Italia, we want to share our Southern Italian roots with you.
