It is with a heavy heart that we now have to close the restaurant until further notice during these unprecedented times.
Today marks 6 years since we opened our doors to you lovely people, which makes this all the more difficult...
We would like to thank everybody for their kind words and messages and we want reassure you all that all of our staff will be here waiting for you.
We understand that the main priority now is to keep everybody safe and prevent the spread of Covid-19. We kindly ask that you look after eachother and please check in on the elderly in our community to ensure that they are safe and well.
This is not a goodbye, just a see you soon.
Love from all at Primo
From our family to yours...
A presto folks!!!
❤❤❤ 🇮🇹 ❤ 🇬🇧 ❤❤❤

Just had a pizza to take out fantastic!!
“By far the best restaurant in Wigan. We have been about 20 times and never once had a bad plate of food. The pasta dishes are fantastic and so are the steaks. We have been as a couple, for family birthdays and for a christening with a party of 30 and the service has always been great.”
Best in Wigan
“An authentic, small, cosy Italian restaurant. Fantastic food, very helpful staff and good service. Portions are larger compared to typical Italian restaurants so be aware (not that I’m complaining!) A good selection of Italian wine at reasonable prices too! Closer to a car park makes it very convenient as well.!”
A hidden gem!
“Fantastic service, atmosphere, cuisine and bar quality I have ever experienced, have travelled the globe this come very highly as a recommendation. Do not miss this !!”
