    I booked Prima Pasta for a work night out for 9 people during the early evening happy hour. The setting was great with us seated within the archway of the railway bridge. The food was enjoyed by everyone and I had a seafood pizza which was delicious and great value for money at the happy hour price. We enjoyed great service and I will definitely be going back again when I have the chance

    Attended Prima for an impromptu Valentine's meal prior to a show at the Sage. The service was pretty good, the menu options were varied, the wine menu was a little lacking, but overall there were quite a few variations to choose from. Sadly my main meal came with black peper, which wasn't listed on the menu as an ingredient, and this caused me some problems later in the evening, but I know to order without black pepper next time.

    This restaurant is unbelievable. We searched for a restaurant for our anniversary and this one had a good menu, nothing too fancy yet appealing. We both ordered the fillet steak and it was one of the best pieces of meat I've ever seen. The staff were helpful with all of the waiters engaging with our table. The food was ready quickly and we weren't rushed to pay which is always a bonus. Absolutely fantastic. 10/10

    Spent New Year's Eve here before walking down to watch the fireworks at the quayside. My other halfs vegetarian, but there was plenty to choose from, I loved my bolognesse pizza and tiramisu. The house red went down a treat. The staff where attentive and friendly, so ideal night out near the quayside.

    I took my mam & her friend to Prima before going to Theatre. Maureen fancied Chicken Kiev which was not on the menu & they obliged & cooked one for her. Made an older lady very happy

    Fabulous place for 20 people, the staff were superb and very accommodating, ensuring we all got the correct meal in a timely fashion - very impressed! The food was lovely and we had no complaints. The building internally is also very impressive. We will all recommend this restaurant to our friends and family. Thank you Prima.

    Excellent seafood linguine and pizzas at Prima. The staff were very welcoming to our mixed age group, and the service of all dishes was very prompt. Good prices too for the food, beer and wine.
