Bar Primi is a corner pasta shop devoted to ‘primi piatti,’ the pasta course. What began as an idea for a small space in New York's East Village has since become an essential in chef and co-owner Andrew Carmellini's range: fresh pasta traditionally prepared and cooked to order. At Bar Primi, the main course is Primi Piatti. We use a variety of non-GMO semolina and specialty ‘00’ flours, organic eggs and handed-down techniques to create our menu of Traditional and Seasonal pasta dishes. We make more than a dozen different shapes and styles daily. This includes lumache and rigatoni from our imported extruder or ravioli and mezzalune cut and filled by hand. Family recipes and secrets are traded between Carmellini and Brooklyn-born chef-partner Salvatore Lamboglia who also offers a daily meat or seafood special in addition to a selection of shareable Piccolini and Antipasti, artisanal cheese, salumi and simple home-style desserts.

    Dining at Bond St is always a great experience. I’ve been coming here for 25 years and every single time they deliver. We come here several times a year from Bergen county and it’s always worth the trip. The food, service and atmosphere are top notch. Highly recommend!

    Celebrated a bday with a big group of friends. Everyone made us feel so welcome and we had a fabulous time. Great ambience, vibe, and we loved all the shareable food options. We also had a vegetarian and a vegan in our group, and there were more than enough options that we all loved. Actually, I think the vegan options were some of the most tastiest. I highly recommend especially for a group. Our servers were great and very attentive but not overly so as they let us stay and have fun without rushing us through the dinner. we were there for well over two hours. We’ll definitely return.
