    GREAT FOOD! absolutley the best bread!!! Try to fried oreos for dessert ... the BEST. however, the hostess (Natalie, I think, with long dark hair) was surprizingly lacking in any sort of friednliness or welcoming when we arrived ... felt like I was at a government office! our server was great (something like Jaimie or Jody) was very friendly, efficinet, kept checkingin with us, Overall, it was a good dinnner with great food.

    The food was great and the service was good too. It was very sneaky of the restaurant however to constantly open new bottles of water without asking if we wanted more. We ended up paying more than $50 for water.

    Went for Miami Spice. They don’t offer you the menu - you have to ask for it. Good choices as in the past but the food quality was not up to par this time. Cheesy garlic bread with marinara sauce was good as was the salad, although smaller than usual. The tuna tartare lacked flavor. The spaghetti and meatball dish was ok- could have used more sauce- but the chicken park was not as tender as usual and was lukewarm - should have been served hotter. Fried Oreos were excellent. Service was very good. Unfortunately this trip was disappointing with lackluster food that was much better on previous visits.

    Had a reservation and then had to wait for a table. That wasn’t the problem. After waiting for a table, given a timetable table by the doors where we could barely pull the chairs out. At those prices, seating should be better.

    From the moment of arrival Savannah pleasantly greeted and checked me in waiting for the others in my party. Alex was also very pleasant and made me an excellent Cosmo at the bar. Jacqueline seated us and she was very hospitable and fun and brought us some wine. Socrates was upbeat and a very efficient waiter checking back with us once, no overkill like 3 times in some places and along with Jacqueline showed vast menu knowledge and execution of service. Jose was a very good server assistant as well. The team seemed to work very efficiently together and was impressive; we’ll be back and recommend PI. I trained employees in hospitality for 21 years at Loews Miami Beach Hotel and you are very fortunate to have these valuable employees. Your Miami Spice menu was well thought out too.

    I should preface by letting you know that I’ve dined at Prime Italian for the past three years quite often, always sitting with Dave on the patio and always ordering the same dishes. Last night, however, my mother visiting from Los Angeles indicated a desire to try the Miami Spice menu there. Although Dave doesn’t work Sundays, I assured her it would be great regardless. Evidently this was an error in my judgment. When we arrived, we were seated outside with a young server, and I had never seen her before. Once we informed here that we were doing Miami Spice, her entire attitude changed. She took our drink menus away instantly without asking, assuming we wouldn't want to order any. When the bread arrived, we noticed it was half of the normal portion. After inquiring, we were told that since we were doing Miami Spice, we would receive less bread. I asked that she send out a manager, as I dine there often and didn’t feel this was right. Evidently the manager couldn’t be bothered to come out, and the server returned to inform us that we could pay $10 for a full loaf if we’d like. She then chastised us, and ruined the entire dining experience. As such, I asked for the check for the two drinks, and we took our business elsewhere for dinner. While I normally wouldn’t say anything, this experience left me with a really bad taste in my mouth. I’ve been a loyal supporter of your dining group, and I’m embarrassed to have taken my family member there to endure such an experience. I’m hoping this can be rectified, as I’d hate to find another Italian restaurant to frequent in Miami.

    Great upscale dining experience. Food was delicious. Starting with the warm parm cheese crusted bread served gratis, the food only got better from there. The boneless chicken marsala was a freshly cut and pounded. The marsala sauce and fresh mushrooms were perfect. The eggplant melanzane was stacked, tender and very tasty. We started with splitting a house salad which was really enough for 4. A tasty combo of greens, cheese and soppessata. Nice place for a special occasion or just really good Italian food. PS Portions are plentiful

    Mostly everything was top notch. Prices are on the higher side and everything seems more expensive these days. Service was excellent and friendly. Great recommendations. The Short Rib Risotto was absolutely delicious. Drinks were not weak. We sat outside and the noise level was too bad just not something the restaurant can control for. But a great night with great food and drinks.
