Southern Italian classics with Northern specialties

Primo's Italian Bistro has a fascinating history! Jim Primo's father opened the first Primo's in Beacon Hill, Boston in 1962. Today at the South Lake Tahoe location, we make all of our sauces, pastas and desserts from scratch at the restaurant. We use only organic, free-range chicken and milk-fed veal. Each dish is carefully prepared to order. We provide a great atmosphere with a beautiful sandstone wall, large fish tank, and burgundy table cloths. 

Come enjoy our great micro brews, imports and wines from our amazing selection in the bar area.

Lunch is served Monday-Friday 11am-3pm (excluding holidays)

Dinner is served Monday-Friday 3pm-10pm & Saturday-Sundays 4pm-10pm

We have won an TripAdvisorĀ® Certificate of Excellence award and voted Tahoe's Best New Business 2012 (Tahoe Daily Tribune) and Tahoe's Best Pasta 2014 (Tahoe Daily Tribune). View Full Gallery
