Primola Restaurant Review

: This busy Italian spot is popular with celebrities and power types at night, though during the day things are generally lower-key. In addition to the regular menu there are lots of specials, such as a half chicken with prosciutto and herbs. Good starter options include the thinly sliced veal with mustard sauce and radicchio; pasta standouts include black and white taglierini with shrimp, fresh tomato and seppia; and for a main dish try the mixed seafood either grilled or steamed in a light tomato broth. Finales include a fruit and cheese plate and homemade gelati. The wine list is mostly Italian.
