A Celebration of Craftsmanship
PRIMI first shot to fame in 1999 and brought a taste of ‘the old country’ into a vibrant urban context. Still today customers can expect nothing short of PRIMI’s punchy flavour, Mediterranean-inspired wholesome food and an unpretentious eating experience.  PRIMI food is fresh and fast, comforting and healthy with all menu items freshly prepared from scratch using only the finest sourced ingredients.

Made Fresh From Scratch
The brand boldly states that when it comes to food ‘THE FUTURE IS TRADITION’, and as such calls upon recipes dating back over two hundred years with great effort being made to source pure ingredients, without artificial additives. As such premium 00-grade stoneground flour, bronze-drawn artisan pasta and pure tomato pulp are imported from Italy. Fresh herbs, desert rock salt, toum and olive oil enhance the prime cuts of meat, sustainably farmed salmon trout and vegetables. Even the dipping sauces and PRIMI condiments are freshly made from scratch. Moreover, ozone is used with filtered water to clean and naturally preserve ingredients. So diners can rest assured that the tasty dishes are also packed with nutrition.
