About the restaurant
Joining the long and glorious row of Huddersfield restaurants and bars clustering under the railway arches along Viaduct Street, Primo surely ranks number one in terms of authentic Italian eats. Making the most of an already rustic but surprisingly spacious setting, Primo keeps things down-to-earth, turning out pizza and pasta, classic Italian antipasti and mains to an audience of intimate dinner-daters, families, and friends building up for a night out in Newsome.
Primo has already snagged Huddersfield’s frugal diners with their early bird menu. Helping keep the crowds down when evening dining proper rolls around and the hordes begin to stalk Newsome and Viaduct Street’s railway arches looking for a bite to eat, Primo offers two- and three-course set menus Tuesday to Sunday, between 5pm and 7pm. A generous selection of Italian starters (chicken in salsa agrodolce), mains (classic lasagne al forno), and desserts await, at rock-bottom prices.
Just minutes from Huddersfield station, tucked away, in fact, under the railway arches up Viaduct Street, Primo opens its doors most nights to a crowd eagerly awaiting their renowned pizzas. Classic margherita and marinara are of course represented, and the list runs long, taking in traditional pies and some signatures – the house Primo (tomato, mozzarella, Parma ham, rocket, cherry tomatoes, parmesan) and the spicy Pizza Americano (tomato, mozzarella, pepperoni, salami, red onions, hot jalapeno peppers). Classically-structured and some of the most affordable Italian dining in Newsome has found a quaint home in its surprisingly large railway arch premises, where a warm and inviting environment awaits.
