If you are hoping to enjoy an evening that is as close to authentic Italian restaurant as you can get, this is the spot. Whenever we are craving Italian that we cannot make at home we head to Primos. We always have a lovely evening, excellent food and a good time. I highly recommend trying it out.

I looked up best pasta dishes and Primos was the first place that popped up. I ordered the fettuccine alfredo and added shrimp. Every bite was amazing and I wished I had more. It's a small place and located on the back end of the strip. There's outside eating also. If I ever return this will be the first place I go to.

Hi Manuel,
I am sorry to hear that this was your experience at my restaurant. Would you mind sharing the details of your visit with me so that I can address them with my staff? We pride ourselves on good food and service, so reading this worries me. I would like to be able to check in with the team who was working the night you were there. Please feel free to send me a message or give me a call at the restaurant. (530) 600-2220. Again, I apologize that we did not live up to expectations!
Best,
Jim Primo

Stopped in for early dinner. The patio is very nice and shady. The food was fantastic, every dish is handmade. Fresh pasta and sauces. The fettuccine Alfredo and lasagna were outstanding. Friendly service, great food, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

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
