We go there from time to time so at this last visit I had a meatball sub instead of the usual pizza. I forgot how good their meatballs taste. More meat with less filler is the secret. Tucked into a nice soft sub roll & covered with their delicious sauce it hit the spot. My husband had the sausage sub... More

We are somewhat new to the area. We have tried several other pizza places who names I will not reveal because they were terrible. On a whim we called Prima tonight and we ordered 20 wings and a small pepperoni pizza. I told them I wanted the pizza crispy. I have asked over and over and over to have our... More

I travel all over the place and Prima has the best 12 cut cheese pizza you will ever have. It seems the later in the evening the better it is. Maybe they out more love into making it.

We recently ordered two Sicilian pizzas for take out; one broccoli garlic and the other with veggies; both were cooked perfectly. We had to wait about 15 minutes longer than they estimated once we arrived, but seeing them so busy on a Friday night was testament to their popularity. They have a small casual dining area with high-top tables that... More

We've been ordering from them for close to 20 yrs and they have the best pizza around. We've tried other pizza and it just doesn't compare. It's got the best chicken tenders and pizza ever! Round pie is especially good. We do hope they go back to their previous mozzarella sticks, they were much better.

The round pie is average, but the Sicilian pie is almost always undercooked. I never get pizza there anymore, but the meatball sub is actually good. The wings are good too.

We ordered pizza and wings from Prima Pizzeria. Good food for the value! Pizza was great as well as service. We did takeout.

Worst service I've ever had, I requested my food be done a certain way and the response was " the owner won't allow it" I asked for all drumsticks for my wing order, I'm paying for the food, you don't tell me how I want it or am getting my food, I'll take my business elsewhere, as will my family....

Best pizza I've had in the capital region and I've tried a lot of different places. Thin crust, great cheese and sauce, they also have Sicilian and Brooklyn style. I've been once or twice later in the day and the slices weren't as good so best to go at lunch time or order a whole pie. Great subs and dinners... More
