Italian
Primo specializes in Mediterranean Italian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh ingredients, an outstanding wine list, and exceptional service. The menu focuses on the farm-to-table experience with seasonal highlights including produce, honey and eggs sourced from on-premise 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.

Everything was flavorless, with the exception of the 1/2 cup of pepper that was added to each entree. The lighting is extreme. It’s analogous to eating in a grocery store. The staff is excellent and our server gave us exceptional service! Please compliment him!

The service was super slow. Really didn’t have a dedicated waitress for a while. The salad was super small not a great value. Pizza was a little soggy. The Manti appetizer was great.

Outstanding from the greeting at the door to the meals end. Service was impeccable, anyone who served our table was knowledgeable in all aspects of the menu, extremely engaging, and professional. The food was outstanding. A very interesting and diverse menu. The entire evening was just outstanding.

Primo was incredible! My wife and I finally had a chance to go, (it was closed for remodeling the last two times we stayed at the JW). The decor and ambiance were lovely and the service was exceptional. The food was second to none. If you make it to dessert, the cannolis were the greatest I have ever had!!!

My first time back in awhile.

We had a nice meal with a great server.

The restaurant was too bright though for an evening dinner.

Otherwise a great experience.

Food and service are excellent as always... However, the restaurant's redesign is extremely disappointing. What was once a special occasion restaurant with beautiful furniture, plush chairs, and white linen tablecloths is now a modern, bright, more casual eatery... This place used to be a romantic, beautiful, special occasion place where I took my wife on our first date and where I proposed to her (at a table for 10!). Used to be one of the top "special occasion" restaurants in Orlando but now the decor is bright, airy, and frankly non-descript. It was a nice place for a business dinner, but no longer a special occasion restaurant, which is a shame because the food and service are outstanding. As an aside, the gorgeous sunken bar in the JW Marriott lobby is gone, as well. Lot of progress, unfortunately all in the wrong direction.

Love the new remodel! Bartenders were great! They have some kinks to work out in the kitchen - food came out mostly lukewarm. Spoke to MOD; she had a great attitude, very pleasant to work with and handled our concerns beautifully. Will give them a few months to fix things, then try again.

Via the booking process it was not known that Primo was being renovated and the menu was being served in an alternate space. The food was average, not what would be expected of a high end restaurant. Server was not very attentive, had to track her down a couple of times.

Primo Restaurant is currently undergoing major changes in decor. The original location is closed and the venue has been temporarily been moved downstairs to the Citron Restaurant location. The menu was limited to only five entree items, as well as the appetizers. All of this should have been noted on Open Table. If I had known this, I would not have dined there. This temporary location is suppose to go til the end off July. Alcholol drink prices are ridiculous, as they are about $3.00 higher than the bar venues one floor above. On the positive side, our server (Martha) did a wonderful job of taking care of us.

Great food. But it was the last night they were going to be open for 5 months. Under new ownership and they are gutting the place. I think there will be a small dining room to use while remodeling. But the major restaurants at this location are hard to get in to.
