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, pasta, 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 microbrews, 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
