"... if you want to taste a risotto made as it should be, you'll need to go to Il Primo." Paolo Tullio, Irish Independent

Welcome to Il Primo

For over 20 years Il Primo has been serving rustic Italian food paired with some of the best wines that Tuscany has to offer.

The restaurant is located in a romantic period house, which has been converted into a lively, homely bar area and a cosy and intimate dining room, located five minutes from St. Stephen's Green. The emphasis throughout Il Primo is on providing some of the finest wines from Tuscany with a range of simple and delicious Italian dishes in the heart of Dublin.

The beautiful paintings on display in the restaurant are by Odile Hendriks.
