    Shocking.....

    I had heard great things about this Upper East Side eatery but no one warned me about the host, who I am told was the owner. To call him a brute would be an understatement. He screams at the staff to the point of embarassment. Uncomfortable to witness. Shame on you. The food and drinks were great. The service was nervous, but attentive. We'll go back when the "boss" goes on vacation.

    Food is wonderful, but....

    the service is extremely harried, restaurant is always crowded with a mostly older, affluent crowd. Food reasonably priced but hold one to your walet for the beverages. The wine list is untouchable. Only Italian and California wines with perhaps two or three wines under $50.00 most around $75.00-$100.00. Howeverr, the food is excellent. Try the veal with mustard sauce for appetizer. Out of this world.

    Wonderful meal!

    I went there for the first time last nite, and had the Chicken with truffles and fontina cheese. It was very good, and came with triangles of polenta, which were great with the sauce from the chicken. Servings are generous, and I took half home. My fiance had venison, and said it was the best he'd ever tasted, and he's eaten it at the best restaurants. The Osso Buco was appealing and not at all fatty. I would definitely go back again!

    A religious experience

    Eating at Primola is akin to looking directly into the eyes of God. The food is simply heavenly. The waiters are treasures and the angel hair pasta is indeed wow-worthy. If you ever have the chance to go, consider yourself blessed.

    Restaurant OK - Nothing Great

    The restaurant was overly crowded, hot, and loud. The servers were very attentive but rushed us through the meal, we only had a couple of minutes to review the menu before it was taken from us. The dishes were removed before you could finish that course. The food was ok but nothing special, there are definitely better Italian restaurants on the Upper East Side.

    Very Surprised!

    Been hearing about this for a long time so we were quite surprised at the poor service. The service alone is reason not to come back. The food was good but certainly not as good as many other Manhattan Italian restaurants.
