PRIMI Station 4 in Gateway, named after an Italian firehouse, is aptly situated in an old fire station. Owned by two Italian brothers, the restaurant prides itself on authentic cuisine - their mother still hand-makes the restaurant’s gnocchi daily and they refuse to serve anything less.
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.
