Walnut Creeks premier Italian restaurant for more than twenty years, Prima is the place to take the people you want to impress. The bustle never stops, especially during the weekend, but the buzz wont drown out your conversation. Light Cal-Italian appetizers give way to full-flavored pastas and even richer entrées, all solidly if not exquisitely prepared. The service is competent and unpretentious, and they'll happily help you navigate the menu and extensive Italian wine list.
