“Wickedly DELICIOUS Gnocchi”
Review of IL Primo

IL Primo
Ranked #21 of 104 Restaurants in Busselton
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$6 - US$22
Description: Modern Italian found here. A short five minute drive from the Busselton Jetty, you’ll find this hidden gem. Il Primo boasts a fresh Modern Italian menu, designed for enjoying with family and friends. The large crate divider in the centre of the room, along with the wooden tables, and polished concrete floors create a rustic vibe. With wood-fired pizza and fresh pasta you can’t go wrong!

If you didn't see the sign you would drive straight by and that would be a grave mistake.
With a menu that is not too expansive it allows the chef too concentrate on doing what they do best.....cooking exceptionally good pasta dishes
The service was great with the wait staff being attentive but not over bearing.
A must try is the gnocchi, seriously the best gnocchi I've had for a long time. Will definitely be going back again

Lovely Italian restaurant, great food & very friendly staff.
Had the calamari with ink sauce, it was delicious. Followed with trout also delicious.
Definitely will be back next visit to Busselton

Dined here recently and was pleasantly surprised. Restaurant was spacious, menu was extensive and the meal was well presented and delicious. Service was reasonable, staff could have been a little more professional, but were friendly and helpful. Will visit again.

Their $40 3 course offer is amazing. You have the choice of the standard menu, with standard size portions (huge) and all for $40!!! Seriously, how do they do this? The good was good too. Modern Italian rather than traditional, but still really enjoyable. The staff were wonderful. So helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Really enjoyable evening.

Visited Il Primo on a busy Saturday night and was not disappointed.
The restaurant was full, however we were still greeted promptly and seated at our table.
The waitress came and took our drinks order and explained the menu when asked.
I ordered the Baby Squid for Entrée which was very tasty and a very generous portion. For mains I had the Reconstructed Rump. I was unsure what to expect, but when it arrived it was a lovely piece of meat with delicious mash potato and a stuff onion. Meat was cooked perfectly. And yes I had dessert - Rich Chocolate Delice Mousse. This was nice however lacking a little sauce of some sort. The crumbs on the plate as you put it all together to make it a little dry to eat so perhaps a little more raspberry gel next time.
Overall, service was attentive, food was delicious and value was beyond words. Highly Recommend this for any type of occasion. Couple, family or party.
