Pasta Fresca & Cocktails

Mamma Primi

Scroll

Because it’s a little familia village, a bit like Rome’s Monti neighbourhood, we’ve always really wanted to open a restaurant at Batignolles. Believe it or not, making ravioli by hand is pretty complicated work that demands a lot of preparation, a generous helping of talent and huge amount of organisation. We’ve created restaurants dedicated to those Italian rock stars called primi piatti. When it comes to drinks, we put 30 Italian wines and every single tonic made in Italy on the menu. And since man can’t live on G&Ts alone, we also added all the greatest Tuscan wines to the mix, in a retrospective homage to the classics.
PS: The big terrace in full bloom? That’s us!

Reservation

The restaurant doesn’t take reservations. Everything is organized via the wait list held by the hostesses that greet you at Mamma Primi’s doors. Those who arrive first, just before opening, are guaranteed to get a table. And for those who don’t quite make it early enough : don’t worry. We’ll add you to the list and call you when your table is ready. Easy breezy.

Why don’t you take reservations ?



We use amazing products that come directly from amazing producers located in Italy. We only serve fresh, 100% made-in-house food. And in order to stay in the spirit of the authentic Italian trattorias we love so much, we offer a menu that’s as affordable as possible. The reality is that latecomers and cancelled reservations represent an enormous cost for restaurants. In order to be able to offer quality products at affordable prices, we have to ensure that all our seats are filled. Either we accommodate a lot of people, or we make a lot of profit.

Plus, there’s advantages to not having to reserve 2 months in advance just to eat a pizza ! To put it simply : we understand that not taking reservations can be inconvenient for our diners, but we have to weigh this consideration against the fact that we’re trying to offer high value-for-money by squeezing our margins. To make things just a little bit easier, we’ve put in place a wait-list system whereby our hostess take your name and telephone number and call you when your table is ready.
