Primi Pasta and Wine Bar, Durango’s newest restaurant on Main Avenue, opened Friday night in the space formerly occupied by Guido’s Pizza Pasta Panini, offering dishes inspired by the simple, locally-sourced food served in the Italian countryside. Primi’s owners, Jarrod and Tracy Regan, traveled extensively during the past 10 years in Italy, drawn by the food and culture. They decided to share what they discovered through their new restaurant at 1201 Main Ave.

“What we liked best is the simple first courses in Italy, which are the pasta dishes,” Jarrod said. The name of the restaurant, which means first course, reflects this focus, the owners said. The couple brings experience to their new venture as the previous owners of Raider Ridge Café, an operation they sold in 2018 because they were ready for a change.
