Currently my favorite pizza place out here. I like the Upton location pizza just a bit more than the one in Kempsville. Primo is a bit more expensive, but if you're a fan of normal NY pizza, it's worth it.


Pizza was good, the atmosphere is fantastic! Don't let the outside of the restaurant fool you. It's very nice and clean on the inside. The open kitchen is a nice touch. I will definitely go back! The desserts are a must try.

For the last few years we have purchased big trays of pasta from them for the holidays. Either the owner or the head chef will come out when you pick it up, to make sure you have all the re-heating instructions. They treat it like they were feeding their own family for a holiday meal. I cannot say enough how pleased we have been with the food and the service.

Waited an hour for a table. Ordered, and waited another hour for our food. Soup came out cold, as well as our meals. Everything tasted Bland. There were Nats flying around us and our food. $120 meal, and over half was thrown away. Pretty poor service also. Not recommended F-

What a meal and what an atmosphere. Such a great locally family owned business that is still standing through all the madness. I just love the service, and pride this establishment takes in their customers. Be patient and kind and you will be guaranteed an awesome experience. Highly recommended

Experience here horrible. Plate of spaghetti that u would expect to be 10.00 here 18.00. That came with 1 meatball n very little sauce. So was a container of noodle for 18.00. Daughter containers of alfredo was smaller then mine n hers was 20.00. So you call In to tell them your unhappy and they tell you nothing they can do. That's been there prices n serving sizes. (Translation) we don't care what customers think we are going to charge you what we want . Don't like it Orwell. Didn't even try to apologize for no sauce really on spaghetti with 1 meatball for 18.00. I suggest go elsewhere n you can get alot better meals for price then here. Mind as well order olive garden for the price

My husband and I had a very nice intimate dinner at the Red Mill location on October 12th. Suggested we goto their other location for our mother (s) birthday the following week and once again Primos did not disappoint. Great staff, quick seating, drinks and appetizers and meals served in perfect timing. Delicious garlic knots. Thank you Selena, Emily, and all the staff for showing up and doing great work. We greatly appreciate the experience to make our occasions feel special!

I don't know how they could get less than 5 stars as every time we have been here the service is great & the food is delicious.

We visited this restaurant yesterday and like everywhere else they were short staffed. The owner was tge only one working in frontDespite all that she was wonderful and the food was great. Have you ever has lemon couscous salad. It was a first for me and it was great. Please patronize this business. You won't regret it.

The pizza was delicious. Service was good even though they were really busy. We only had to wait for about 15 minutes for a party of 8 on a Friday night. The portions on the pasta and salad dishes are huge.

Great pizza and pasta! Taste like authentic Italian food. I come here and take out pizza a lot but I also dine in frequently and it’s always delicious. The atmosphere is super relaxing and the staff is super kind. Definitely a great place for taking out pizza or dining in and getting great Italian food!


Having eaten Italian food from Rome to Sydney, we know great Italian food and this is great Italian food. Pasta is consistently great but the Chicken Marsala is as good as any we have ever had. Portions are extremely large, so fair warning the sharing or taking home is very likely. And the Tiramisu is as good as any we ever had in Italy. We cannot recommend this place more highly.


Discovered this gem close to our new home. The food is fabulous and the portions are generous to a fault. The chicken marsala is one of our favorite dishes but all of the pasta dishes are fantastic. The tiramisu is some of the best that we have ever tasted, up with deserts in Italy. Cannot recommend this place more highly.
