Primo Piatto The outlet is conveniently located on the main road leading to the sea and/or railway station. We loved the concept. Choose the past you want with the sauce you prefer. As we were in Liguria, for us, the latter had to be pesto. We ordered our take away to savour in our apartment and we made sure we... More

We decided to do takeout one night after walking up and down the Cinque Terre all day. A chill meal on our balcony sounded like just the ticket...and it was. You order the pasta you want and then the sauce you want. Then, they cook it up and put it in a take away container for you. It was take... More

We picked up some takeaway pasta from this place, looking forward to some fresh homemade pasta. Firstly, it seemed like a burden to serve us, like we were putting the owners out by being there. Then, my order was mixed up and I was given the wrong sauce and pasta combination. The pasta was undercooked and the sauce was bland.... More

Food was OK, pretty fresh, but relatively tasteless pesto. Service was horrible as already mentioned, but if you're looking for a quick pasta instead of a seafood cone this will do and only costs 5 euros per carton.

Ordered a few dishes to go yesterday and ate it at our apartment a few hours later. The pasta was good, but that's really all. Compared to all the different meals we've had over the last few weeks it really doesn't compare. To be fair, however, this concept really is about convenience and from that standpoint they succeed. If you... More

I love the concept of this kind of place... pick your pasta, pick your sauce, then leave five minutes later with your food in a paper container. We had pasta this way in Venice, and it was fantastic. My family tried three different pasta and sauce combinations at Primo Piatto, and none were particularly impressive. The pesto was flavorless, the... More

Clean and so cute- go in- point to the fresh pasta size and shape you want- select your sauce. All is prepared before you! 5 minutes and you're off with a great take out and utensils to enjoy wherever!

I first visited this small take-away style restaurant in the fall of 2012. Needless to say after my first visit, I had it an 2 additional times before I left (I was only visiting for 2 days). I always think back to how delicious and perfectly made these little pillows of heaven were. Fast forward to June 2016, I was... More

Stopped in here to pick up pasta to take back to our apartment. Freshly made daily, delicious and reasonably priced. Love the trofie+pesto and also the salsa mediterraneana. Highly recommend for a picnic in town or down by the seashore.

Pick your pasta, and pick a sauce and it's ready in minutes. Great cheap takeaway option in a city where there are few. The Mediterranean sauce was my favorite.
