Prima Ristorante

40-46 The Side
Located in a prime position on the Quayside in Newcastle, you’ll find Prima Ristorante and Pizzeria. Prima is situated centrally, and locals who wander the Quayside will recognize it as being beneath the beautiful stone arch. The restaurant itself has many original architectural features, not least the beautiful stone of the arch which is found in some parts of the restaurant. While a melding of contemporary Italian style with heritage features is part of its charm, Prima is renowned for its warm, convivial ambiance and, of course, superb food.

The menu is filled with tempting Italian dishes, from antipasto to pasta dishes that range from the traditional to the creative and contemporary. But many come to Prima specifically for their traditionally prepared pizzas. You’ll know they’re the real deal when you see the pizzaiolo fling the dough and make your pie before your eyes. Don’t forget to sample the sweets, which are a main feature of the tempting menu.

Book a private room for a special occasion, be it a birthday or even a business function. For those who like their cocktails exciting and mixed by a master, Prima will not only delight, but offers courses for those who themselves want to learn the art of mixology. Head in on Sunday for the set menu.
