Huntingdon, England: Good Food, Good Meat, For Cryin' Out Loud Go There And Eat!

Prima Restaurant
143 High Street

United Kingdom
Phone number: +44 1480 455553
Prices: ££££

With fairly reasonable prices by British standards, our dinner at Prima with some old mates I had not seen in 20 years was smashing, jolly good fun!
Parking can be a challenge in the center of Huntingdon, but some local knowledge (and permission) got us a spot in close proximity. Attractive inside and out, the restaurant is modern and tastefully decorated with stone and wood accents.
We were the only four customers on a weeknight, so the service was fast and efficient. We started with a Basket of Bread with EVO and Balsamic Vinegar (£2.95), Marinated Olives (£2.95), and a bottle of Pinot Grigio (£15.95). The bread was fresh and tasty, the olives delicious and the wine ... white, not my favorite, but dinner was our treat and our dear friends prefer vino bianco, so there you have it.
My wife had the Linguine Carbonara (£8.95) and I the Mussels in Marinara and Cream Sauce (Special - £9.95). Our friends had Penne (£10.95) and Mussels (£9.95) with the two boys sharing a side of French Fries (£2.95). My wife is Italian and the carbonara was of the non-Italian variety (made with cream, not eggs - damn salmonella!), so she was not thrilled although she said it was "not bad" (picky Italians). The mussels were very good, but I would have thought a "main" (we had the option of "appetizer" or "main") would have had more mussels than we ended up getting (about a half pound).

Everybody had the Amaretto Ice Cream (£6.95) except me, so I had a taste of my wife's. It was good. Overall, the dinner was extremely enjoyable and did not break the bank. The food was good, probably the best Italian we had in our month in England, but having lived in Italy and being married to an Italian, our standards are pretty high. I would definitely recommend Prima if in the Huntingdon area.
