Fun atmosphere and delicious
Fun atmosphere and delicious menu. Upbeat atmosphere with open kitchen. Everything was delicious from the apps to the desserts. Enjoyed the luxury of a very good restaurant within our hotel. Definitely worth a return visit.

The food and service were
The food and service were very good...perhaps too good. We ordered a bottle of wine and our dinner was served as the server was presenting the wine. However we were not rushed after that. We would have preferred to enjoy the wine and allow it to open a little before the entree was served. otherwise, no complaints.

EXCELLENT - FRESH - BEST IN ORLANDO
This is a truly inspired and exceptional restaurant. Everything is so fresh and delicious - the menu items are original combinations of texture and taste we've never quite seen outside of some of the finest New York restaurants. In my opinion this is the finest restaurant in Orlando.

The canolies are to die for. Not for traditionalists, but a wonderful end to our meal. We really enjoy this restaurant!

Hidden Gem in Orlando
Primo was a surprising treat. Amazing food and service. From the fresh baked bread selection to the decadent desserts...you can't go wrong!

The only thing I'd change
I've been wanting to go to Primos for a while, so I was able to convince my husband to go on our 24th anniversary. It was a great experience. I was a little disappointed because the menu had changed from what I saw online and wasn't able to get exactly what I wanted, but what I got was fabulous. However, I thought the dessert (which I don't usually get) was very disappointing. It was three crepes that seemed mostly heavy and a bit tough with very little filling or yummy stuff on top. At least they thoughtfully wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plate. Otherwise, a great experience. The service was AWESOME.

Food was very good--SIgnature
Food was very good--SIgnature dish is a pork saltimbaca and was excellent. Lobster entree was also excellent. Had the oyster 2 way appetizer and this was good but not great for $17. In addition, 3 of us ordered this and mine was "forgotten" and took an additonal 10-15 minutes to bring out with the only comment that "yours will be out in a minute" and it took alot longer. It would have been more appropriate to just admit what had happened. The anitpasto appetizer was great and beautifully presented. Chocolate cake dessert was also very good. Coffee was very weak and not served very hot.
All in all it was very good and this was my second visit to this restaurant. It is a good place to meet people stayin at the JW Marriott when visiting Orl.

What an experience...
From the first foot into this restaurant until the minute you leave the attention to detail is incredible.
We have dined previously at Primo on several occasions however this past trip to Orlando we had the pleasure of dining in the restaurant twice. It was such a memorable meal on the Saturday evening that we reserved the same table on the Monday evening as well...
There are so many great items on their menu to mention however they offered a special of Blue Fin Tuna served rare on the Saturday night which was unbelievable and executed perfectly.

If your staying in either hotel in Orlando, Grande Lakes, Primo is a casual spot that serves great food, in a great atmosphere. Our server this evening was a little out of touch , but the runners were very energetic and attentive. After a day at the pool, Primo was a excellent way to end our day.

Our table was ready at our reservation time, cozy booth & lovely atmosphere.
Wait staff was very attentive and knowledgable. Food is very creative, exceptional flavors
and well presented. A birthday was quietly noted but not in an embarrassing manner.
Definetly would come again!

we had a terrific dinner at Primo. The food was excellent as was the service. My only complaint is that the restaurant was quite warm - uncomfortably so. We were offered another table, but I thought that the restaurant would cool down as the meal progressed, unfortunately, it did not. Avoid the tables on the level of the open kitchen. The view is nice, but the temperature is not. As we exited the restaurant and walked through other dining areas, the temperature was considerably cooler.

Always great . We live in
Always great . We live in South Florida bit ALWAYS go to Primo when in Orlando
Never disappoints. Have eaten in Melissa Kelly's restaurant since she ran Old Chatham Sheepherding Inn and we lived in Albany, NY

Loredona was our server, and it's obvious that attentive but unobtrusive service is the watchword at Primo. Reasonable corkage fees also a huge plus. The chef is the expediter, assuring quality and presentation of all plates leaving the kitchen. Breads are superb, with an unusual French olive oil made from black olives! Don't miss the veal shank ravioli if on the menu... the brown butter sauce is to die for!
House specialty is the pork saltimboca with high grade pork scallopine. We were so full we passed on dessert, but the choices looked great.
Though we're not local, we'll be back!

The menu changes seasonally and is always fresh. Pasta is made daily in house and you can tell. Desserts are amazing.

Great food- wine and service. Primo is only 15 minutes from home and a favorite place to celebrate an important event or a special place to meet friends. We love it please don't
change a thing --- except to make it easier to book a reservation!!

Consistant & Excellent
I was at the Marriott Grand lakes for 5 days and I had the opportunity to eat at Primo's 3 times !!
Each visit was Outstanding with the food and service being the best in the Orlando area in my experience.
I make it a point to dine at Primo's every time that I get the opportunity to visit Orlando !

Primo is Prime!
Our dining experience at Primo in Orlando, Florida was unparalleled. We felt relaxed and pampered. The food was amazing from start to finish and we will definitely choose Primo again when we're in the Orlando area.

Excellent food and service
I am from NH and I will definitely make the trip to Maine to visit the original Primo the first chance I get. Top notch Italian cuisine and not rediculously expensive.

The quality of food is amazing. Won't find fresher and more interesting dishes anywhere.

This dinner was for my anniversary and we had never been to this restaurant before so it was a new experience. The restaurant is located in the JW Marriott hotel and the valet parking was free if you are dining which was nice. Our reservations were at 6 pm when it opened so there was no other guest there. Our servers were very nice, helpful and well informed about the food and beverages offered at Primo. The menu changes on a regular basis the overall meal was very very good, my fish was cook perfectly and my wife's was tender. Our server also had a special plate with "happy Anniversary" written on it for my wife, it was a very nice touch to a great experience.
