Primo

Hen ragu over pappardelle

Primo Review

In Pigneto, an up-and-coming hipster neighborhood compared to Brooklyn's Bushwick, Primo is a trendsetting modern Italian restaurant highlighting local ingredients. But while the name Primo may reference the primary ingredients that are the focus of the menu, it could just as easily refer to the prime people-watching. The young patrons sip from a selection of 250 wines and nibble hand-sliced prosciutto, anchovy-and-broccoli gratin, and salads with goat cheese and radicchio. Pastas include artichoke tortelli with marjoram and pecorino, and seafood mains like grilled swordfish with a pistachio sauce. Those with more carnivorous desires can sink their teeth into dishes like the provolone-and-herb-stuffed veal. The neighborhood is a 10-minute bus ride from Termini station.
