Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
*There is no CC with this creation but you will need all of the EPs listed.*

I created this restaurant for one of my neighbourhoods and loved it so much I thought I'd share! When I built this I wanted to make sure I had the "Olde World Italian Ristorante" captured so the outcome wouldn't be a boring, standard Italian restaurant (not that there's anything wrong with them, but it wasn't what I was going for here). The atmosphere is high-class and sophisticated but not too pretentious. The dining area options are plenty as there is indoor seating, outdoor patio seating (with beautifully strung lights), bar seating or espresso bar seating. The main level contains the main dining area-indoor (with two fireplaces) and outdoor-as well as a coat-check room (location of the public phone). The second level contains the espresso bar and regular bar and is connected to the main level via twin staircases. The two bars are split and have their own stairs which work well to control congestion. The third and final level contains the kitchen and restrooms along with an informal lounging area. This level is connected to the second by spiral staircases. The kitchen is separate from the restrooms and the only people who travel that spiral stair is the wait-staff. The stairs seem to work well and I've not had any issues with people getting blocked or stuck.

*I have played this lot quite often, but if you run into any issues please feel free to e-mail or PM me.*

The exterior is just stunning, and the waterfall staircase inside is full of win!

I thought it was funny too, but wasn't sure if anyone else would think so! I love the movie "Big Night" with Tony Shalhoub and his character's name is "Primo". The restaurant in the movie looks nothing like the one I made, but I thought I would make it "Primo's" anyway. Thanks for the nice comments! :D
