Authentic Italian Chophouse
Prime Meats Italian”

Tuscan Prime is an Italian Chophouse in the heart of Annapolis managed by the MONTE Restaurant Development Group. Opening Tuscan Prime Italian Chophouse has been a dream of owners Michele and Gennaro DiMeo for years and they could not be more proud of their new location, décor, staff and food. With prime steaks and chops, award winning Italian cuisine, over the top desserts to WOW, all paired perfectly with a masterfully crafted wine list, Tuscan Prime is the perfect addition to the food scene in Annapolis.

From ambiance and décor to perfected menus, no detail was left untouched for the Italian Chophouse. Gennaro DiMeo has worked diligently to perfect the menu while highlighting the elevated Italian classics, authentic recipes from his home town of Naples, and the best cuts of meats.  Michele DiMeo’s knowledge of wine, alongside the skilled staff and sommelier, created an award winning wine list that is guaranteed to impress.  From delicious elevated meals, catered events in our private dining rooms, and Prime happy hour at the gorgeous bar, there are options for every diner. The experience at Tuscan Prime is refined from beginning to end. The Dolce Bar is the place to celebrate every special event and occasion. One which will not disappoint!
