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.

Please contact us for a tour of our dining rooms.
