We were on the way back to Stateline, NV from spending the day hiking. We found Primo's almost by accident, I is i the back of a shopping center. It was early. My taste buds have been destroyed but radiation, but tis place brought them alive. Bread was great with olive oil and vinegar just the way it should be. great salad, and my wife loved her baked eggplant parmesan, I shared the linguine and sauce. Sauce was great. The service was great by Mica. Truly a great find will recommend this small friendly place. get there early as it gets buys later. They surpassed our every expectation

Looked this up on TripAdvisor - decided to stop in for a quick lunch. Really glad we did. We both got Lasagna - it was really good.

We planned on going back for diner but could not make it happen.

Give this place a try I am certain you will go away happy and full ☺.

We stopped in for dinner and had the lasagna. It was okay but seemed to have lots of sauce and not much pasta. I expected better for $17 but maybe that's reasonable in this resort town. Service was excellent and the atmosphere had an Italian flair.

Hi Trish,
I am sorry to hear that you were not impressed with my restaurant. Our prices are definitely in line with the rest of the restaurants here, especially since we make all of our pasta, pizza, sauces, and desserts fresh in house. However, we want our food to be more than okay! We strive to really wow our customers. Please feel free to send me a message with any suggestions you may have. I appreciate the compliments and the stars despite all of the above. I hope we get to make it up to you in the future.
Best wishes,
Jim Primo

Good food and service. Small locals places. Non descript strip mall location. Home made pasta the fettuccine Alfredo is full of garlic not authentic Italian with nutmeg.
Veal is good but a little tough
