We are honored that Primo has been designated a Recommended Restaurant in the inaugural Florida 2022 MICHELIN Guide. Led by award-winning chef Melissa Kelly, our restaurant serves authentic Italian cuisine, featuring organic produce and a carefully crafted wine list.

The menu focuses on the farm-to-table experience with seasonal highlights including produce, honey and eggs sourced from on-premises Primo Garden and Whisper Creek Farm in addition to Mick's Farm and Frog Song Organics in the local community. All seafood is also locally sourced from Florida waters, including clams from Cedar Key, white shrimp and squid from Cape Canaveral, and Snapper, grouper, and other seasonal catch from Ponce Inlet. Mountain Trail Farm in Clermont, FL provides Primo with whole pigs, which are prepared several different ways. Primo also has a long-standing relationship with Lake Meadows Naturals in Ocoee, FL for chicken and ducks.

    Pasta slightly over cooked. Deserts too sweet and too many dishes with cheese or pork in them. Need a few lighter flavours.

    My husband and I dined here on Valentine’s Day. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is kind and gave us great service. The food however was a bit lacklustre. Most dishes were bland, and even those that we did like could have been improved with a little extra salt or more of the sauce. My husband did enjoy his main, the Toreteloni and we both loved the carrot cake! I think this restaurant has so much potential but maybe a menu refresh is needed as the ideas on paper sounded great but did not translate well into actual food that is remarkable

    Brandon gave us excellent service. Portions were generous and filling. Details were on point. Came on Valentine’s Day and can’t wait to come back. Accommodated my last minute requests with ease. Cannoli is not to be missed! First one I’ve ever been impressed with. Now I get it.

    Good was ok but not more. Not sure why Primo is recommended by Guide Michelin. We ordered two glasses of Cava as aperitif which arrived totally flat so we had to send it back. Then we ordered a bottle of white wine for dinner which arrived too warm as it came only out of a wine cooler and not a fridge. So, would not go back.

    How can this be a Michelin recommended restaurant? Let me emphatically state PRIMO should ABSOLUTELY BE a Michelin star restaurant ⭐️. The service and hospitality are phenomenal! Our server, Marissa, attended to us as if we were her only guest for the evening. Truly a grand dining experience that took our tastebuds on a well thought-out and cared for journey. My husband ordered the Torrelloni. How can so much flavor be packed into a single dish🧨? I ordered the Pork Saltimbocca and my taste buds danced the night away 💃🏾. The flavor profile is simply amazing. Needless to say we were blown away. We concluded our meal with the carrot cake for dessert. OMG now we are talking stratosphere 🚀. How can a carrot cake taste so delightful. Super kudos to the chefs and entire team, definitely masters of elevating the dining experience. Whenever you’re within 50 miles of Orlando you “must” dine at PRIMO! Bon appétit 😋

    We had a tremendous Dinner at Primo the meatball appetizer was spot on. Thoroughly enjoyed the Scallops and Porkbelly entree (I’ve never seen that before but what a delicious surf and turf!) and my son in law had a spicy pasta that he loved. The Chianti Classico by the glass was perfection. The Zeppole’s were fantastic for dessert. We will be back here for sure soon! Wait staff was awesome as well.

    I’m glad this wasn’t our first night eating here bec our experiences were completely different. While the first was quiet, romantic, & very evenly paced, this visit was loud, not well, paced & it was very hard to converse. Now admittedly it was at least twice as crowded with several large groups. Bottom line - if it’s crowded expect it to be loud. If it’s not crowded you are in for a magical experience

    Primo boasts a sensational menu with regularly changing specials. The crab arancini was excellent as a starter and the entrees are big enough to share. The wine list is small, but there was something for everyone.

    Walked in, welcomed by the hostess who tells us there is no table for 3, even if we can see a lot of empty tables. We stepped away, booked a table online and were welcomed by the same hostess who took us to our table… really??? Besides that, food is good, a bit pricey.
