Our 3rd time at Prima Pasta and it never disappoints. Andreu our waiter made the visit even better with excellent service and suggestions. The pear pasta cannot be missed and the braised short rib on champagne risotto was amazing. Will definitely be back:)

Pretty sure they can do something vegetarian- not sure about the gluten free but they are very nice and always have helped when something special ordered.
