Private Dining

Private Dining

Thank you for considering holding your special event here with us at Prima.
We are delighted to accommodate private parties for up to 50 guests.

The several dining rooms offer various options – from the energetic Forno with its wood burning oven, to the Caminetto, where guests can be near the warmth of a fireplace, the Loggia, our glass-enclosed porch offering bustling views of the action on Main Street, to the elegant Enoteca where diners can view our reserve wine cellar. In addition, Prima Bar is always a center of local activity. Valet Service, Audio Visual, Floral Design and other amenities are available.

Private, Sommelier-Led Tastings:
We offer private, Sommelier-led wine tastings for parties of any size. These can be held in any of our private dining rooms or even in our wine shop next door, Prima Vini. We can curate the tasting theme to fit any palate or concept utilizing our 50-page wine list. Give us a chance to do what we do best and introduce you to the best wines that the world has to offer in a private and fun setting. This is the perfect ‘cocktail hour’ before any private function!

Please contact us for a tour of our dining rooms.
