Slow Tuesday night, the bread came out cold, when questioned, was told that's how it's intended... I asked to have it heated through, it was good bread, shame it was delivered chilled We order apps beef tartare and arancini. The tartare was totally pickled with capers, you tasted nothing else. Honestly, nothing but capers. The arancini was done right, we just preferred it with marinara not mint, can't fault them for that. We got their signature saltimbocca pork scalipini. Zero saltimbocca could be discerned. Like zero. We also got the scallops and pork belly. The scallops we're completely over salted when accompanied by naturally salty pork belly and fried and seasoned sun chokes... Way too much. We did say something to the waitress and the chef came over to talk to us. We relayed our feedback and he asked if we wanted something else, we asked that he choose. He sent over a snapper and black barley that was absolutely spot on. Bravo for fixing a miss and actually reading your guests and reacting. Moved to 4 stars for the effort.

Primo is Italian, Primo is very well staffed. Everyone in our service was friendly, courteous and more than willing to make our evening great.
Both orders had special requests not on the menu, or swapped and added. Everything was wonderful. I had their Bolognese and subbed the Papperdelle pasta, it was magnificent. Well portioned, full of flavor.
Will definitely revisit Primo. Hat's off to the Chef and staff.

Fabulous service and ingredients; and food that was out of this world. We had Thomas as a waiter and he was very professional, along with others on his team. All worked as a team to make our night. The creativity with the 63 degree celcius egg and the desserts were phenom. Also loved the grilled peach wrapped in proscuito as an amuse bouch.

Our meal was delicious! The flavor combinations were beautifully put together. We enjoyed this meal from beginning to end. The appetizers were each complex and delicious in their own way. The meatball and polenta appetizer was seasoned to perfection and my favorite. Our meals were packed full of flavor and memorable. The dessert was divine! Our service was exceptional. The staff was attentive and very knowledgeable. This was a great dining experience. We will dine here again!

This was my third time here. I make it a point to eat here each time I stay at the Marriott or the Ritz. Upscale Italian food but won't break the bank. I strongly suggest making reservations in advance, as this place fills up pretty quick. Their wine selection and cocktails are impressive.

They did not give me my points for my dining. I had a reservation for two. We just flew in. My associate was having problems at airport so we were not sure if she would make it. I was hungry since I had been up since 4:30 traveling and no food. I guess they decided to penalize me instead of offering great service. I am at hotel for 5 days wit 8 people and I will not bring them there.

Our food was not very good except for our dessert that was excellent. We were one of two tables in the restaurant and still service was not great! The server spilled a drink with ice and just left it there for my daughter to clean up. I would never eat here again!

I visited this restaurant a few years back and toughly enjoyed it. (I have only just returned to this area) Unfortunately on this last visit, the smell of old cooking oil or fat was very off putting, and seemed to linger on your clothes, it is no longer the upmarket restaurant I remember, the choice of menu, being meatballs, burgers and pizza do not justify the that label. However our server was very pleasant and efficient. I will not be in a hurry to revisit this restaurant.

I had dinner with family and found the food was of good quality and there was a nice selection of wines. I found this restaurant frankly overpriced considering the service, noisy atmosphere and location.

My wife and I really enjoyed our 9th Anniversary dinner. The waiter was great, very attentive and personable. They have a very limited selection of menu items ( 1 fish, 1 seafood, 1 meat, 1 chicken, etc.). A little inconsistent on the pricing and very expensive. $11 for a basic salad, $22 for lobster and pasta, and $44 for veal shank. We brought our own special bottle of champagne and were certainly expecting a corkage fee of $15. We were VERY displeased with a $25 corkage fee. That is way out of whack for less than 2 minutes of the waiters time. The restaurant would still get their profit margin on a $15 corkage fee. We would not go back anytime soon. We would recommend it but would caution about the prices.

It was our second time eating here. First time everything was spot on. This time the mushroom bisque lacked flavor other than the large fosr of truffle oil. Veggie pasta was way too salty.

Food was amazing, great service, great wine list. You are paying a resort premium which is fine, the food quality and service justifies the price, just does not earn a 5th star for value.

Impressed with the fried gnocchi. They brought us out some free appetizers because they knew they were slow and we didn’t understand why. Needless to say, we got our food so late we took it home. A little disappointed.

Dining at Primo was an excellent end to our vacation at the JW Marriott. The food was delicious, unique, and reasonably priced. Our waiter was highly attentive and provided efficient service. Moreover, the ambiance was quiet and managed to integrate class and comfort. I would highly recommend making reservations in advance. My husband and I look forward to dining at Primo the next time we are in Orlando.

Dining at its finest. The food here is magnificent! The service is amazing. Food arrives timely and not on top of each course. Each dish is like an explosion of flavors in your mouth. When I visit Orlando, it is one of the first restaurants at which I make a reservation. Highly recommend it. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it.
