Primo's: "Primo's (Italian)" Italian Tip by Aaron7

Italian, Phoenix: 7 reviews and 9 photos

This is a very nice restaurant with great food, hidden away in an unlikely place. It's hidden away in a strip mall along with a bagel store right next to taco bell and across from Basha's. It features gourmet cuisine with exquisite preparation at every step. The seasoned bread crusts made a nice, tasty if not spectacular start to the meal. The salad arrived and was certainly a step above most other restaurants. It featured a variety of leafy greens covered with a delicious house italian dressing and a waiter provided fresh cracked pepper to taste. The meal itself was similarly exquisite. All the members of our group were extremely happy with the pasta and meat preparation whether having ziti or marsala. The sauces all measured up extremely well. The portions were perfect, not so little that you felt cheated, but not so large that you felt over strained when they presented a desert menu. The desserts were also very good, though I was a bit disappointed with the cheesecake. It couldn't compare with a NY cheesecake. The others were happy with thier tiramisu and sorbet though.

Favorite Dish: The seafood ravioli. It's not listed on the menu aside from a quick blurb "Ask about our ravioli". But it is great. It comes with a sweet cheese sauce, and the portion is just the right size.
