"The risottos are the best in Dublin, bar none."
Tom Doorley - Irish Times
"The crab and fennel lasagna was an absolute knockout... I'm happy to up Il Primo by a further star and declare it Dublin's best Tuscan, even Italian restaurant."
Eric Whalley -
"If you're looking for something special yet simple, smart yet casual and very definitely delicious, you would be well advised to make your way to Montague Street."
Tom Dwyer
"Il Primo makes its own pasta and the effort shows in the quality. This simple dish was evidence that Thoma is adept at the full repertory of rustic Italian food."
Ross Golden Bannon - Sunday Business Post
"Service is really sweet and their little interior tweaks have made it their own whilst still retaining what was always charming about Il Primo."
Domini Kemp - Image Magazine
"Some of the best fresh pasta (narrow papardelle) that I've tasted outside Italy."
Tom Doorley - Irish Times
"Located in one of Dublin's most exotic streets, Il Primo's suave, sophisticated ambience and exceptional service make it one restaurant worth seeking out."
