Pizzeria La Prima

You’ll have your loved one singing ‘That’s Amore’ this Valentine’s Day with Pizzeria La Prima’s special Valentine’s Day dinner set menu.

Recently voted as one of Brisbane’s best pizzerias, Pizzeria La Prima will be serving up its famous pizzas, as well as freshly home-made pasta, with tiramisu or Nutella pizza for dessert.
The authentic Italian restaurant run by Milan-born Claudio D’Andrea has also recently acquired its liquor licence, so will be serving up Italian wine and beer to compliment dinner for an ‘autentico’ romantic dinner experience.

Mr D’Andrea said this year Valentine’s Day at Pizzeria La Prima will be the most romantic yet. “Last year we prepared a really nice set menu but it was only with pizzas, so this year we will be adding some fresh pasta like pappardelle and gnocchi,” Mr D’Andrea said.
