Nothing less than the Best as orchestrated by owner/executive chef Melissa Kelly. She is the best in the business. Her staff is best at what they do. The food as always was exceptional! We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you Melissa and staff.

From the bread to the spectacular dessert, the food, ambience and service was flawless. One of the most impressive aspect about this restaurant is how much of the ingredients are locally sourced. The servers are so knowledgeable and over the course of our meal had more than one server check on us.

I was very impressed with the quality and presentation of my meal. The amuse bouche was a nice touch. Burrata and tomato salad was one of the best I ever had. Perfectly cooked short rib and my dessert was delicious. Good selection of cocktails and beers. Very stylish interior. I would return her if I stay at the JW again.

My wife and I went to Primo (while staying at the JW Marriott) for our 3rd Wedding Anniversary Dinner. I must say that the choices were very unique. I went out on a limb, at the recommendation of our server (I wish I could remember his name) and was very pleased.

Not only were we treated with a sample appetizer, but our dessert was also on the house (for our special occasion).

I would love to come back here soon.

My husband and I have eaten at Primo twice while on vacation in Orlando. The menu, service, wine list, and ambience are stellar. This past visit we shared a Farmer's Salad (ample for two people) and each got the Pork Saltimbocca entree. Our servers, Michelle and Oadie, were extremely knowledgeable about all ingredients in and preparation of the food, as well as the best wines to accompany the meal. Service here is outstanding -- Michelle and Oadie were always immediately there if we needed them, but they never intruded. We so enjoy this restaurant; we almost always eat there when we're in Orlando. Highly recommend it for a special evening!

Primo has been one of my favorites restaurants for long time; his ambiance, food, service, atmosphere, desserts, wines etc are top notch. Chef Melissa Kelly is very farm to the table/seasonal food oriented and you definitely can see it in her menu. Chef Dylan Rebuck stopped by our table to talk about the dishes and asked if was any special request or dietary restriction they need to be aware of.

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.
