PRIMI Loft in Sunninghill (JHB) is located on the top level of the Chilli Lane complex and is run by the charming and aptly named married couple, Happy and Armstrong. Choose between sitting indoors (the private sofa booths have special appeal) and soaking up that vibrant Urban Energy emanating from the iridescent bar and open kitchen, or gravitate towards either one of the two outdoor seating areas to absorb views and more views – over the bustling highways or the open fields.

Parents and kids alike will be thrilled to find the “Primi Pods” kiddies area in front of the pizza section where youngsters are entertained by professional caregivers and chefs who teach the kids how to make pizzas, bake biscuits and even (hopefully) how to appreciate veggies!


Inspired by Italian tradition but influenced by the cosmopolitan present with Traditional, Gourmet and Comfort Food offerings. The food is a masterful display of culinary simplicity and complexity in perfect harmony, with all menu items freshly prepared from scratch using only the finest sourced ingredients. Meals are prepared with the the healthier options of preparation; with ingredients lightly sautéed, seared, grilled, cooked al dente and burgers iron- pressed ensuring the natural flavours and integrity of the ingredients are prominent.


PRIMI is all about best efforts to serve an inspired experience of exceptional food and service and of course real, healthy, value for money!

And it starts at the top. Francesco Zanasi is known for putting his all into PRIMI. “When I die, I don’t want to be remembered for running a restaurant, I want to be remembered for having changed people’s lives, having made a difference.” That’s why the restaurant’s constant electric character echoes the PRIMI philosophy - that “work is love made visible.”

The dynamic, unpretentious atmosphere at PRIMI works for both serious business talk and for social chitchat, and for everything in-between. It’s a good place for the family and an even better place for inspired get-togethers.
