Primo is our new go to place for special nights out or birthdays. The pork dishes are a special family favorite. Tried their pizza for first time and it was great.

Great experience
Made a reservation for our anniversary and put that in the open table comments.
The hostess congratulated us on our anniversary when we arrived and took us to our table that was slightly removed from other tables, but had a view of the kitchen, which we like.
Our server was exceptional.
Helpful with suggestions and always professional and friendly.
We had the shrimp risotto and the chicken sous aux brique, both amazing.
The Manhattan and my gin drink were also excellent

Service was fantastic. Engaging and friendly, well timed and intuitive. Second time here, apps and pastas are on point while the entrees are not quite to the level of the former, still a great spot to check out. We will be back for sure.

The food is great. One of my favorites places. Delicious calamari is a must to start. Great pizzas too. Pasta is so fresh and great flavors all around.

Fantastic dinner for my wife and I. Very clean, bright and open location. Great cocktails and fresh food ingredients. Would like to see more local beers, ciders and spirits on the menu. The buratta appetizer with the squash was fantastic, and the house made foccacia was amazing. The wine list is probably the most fairly priced I've seen in a long time. A bottle of Andrew Will cab franc was only $68. A bottle of "D 2" also $68, when at many other locations I've seen those offerings for $90 per bottle. Friendly and attentive staff. We will be back.

Came here as a last minute reservation on New Years Eve and were lucky enough to score one of the last tables available. Food was well seasoned and fresh and cocktails were delicious. Servers and staff were super friendly and efficient on what was I'm sure a very busy night. Would gladly go again.

The only thing I can say negative is the mandatory 18% service fee applied to the dinner bill. We normally tip higher then that especially during the Covid pandemic. By applying the 18% automatic charge we were unable to tip a higher amount. Also our waiter apparently had to step out so we had two other servers clear our table and submit our bill. Authorize everything was great.

It’s a bit loud but they worked hard to find a table to have as much privacy as possible. The food is perfect. The service is perfect I’m spite of being extremely busy.

Great birthday dinner for the wife. The service was outstanding. Both our pre-dinner cocktails were delicious and mixed well. We had the calamari for an appetizer which was excellent. I loved that it was not fried. Definitely get the focaccia bread to go along with it. My salad was fresh and crispy. My wife had the salmon which was perfectly prepared. Even after living in Alaska for 15 years, I can say that this was the best piece of salmon I can remember tasting. For dessert, we had the bourbon chocolate cake, which is more like a torte and was decadent. We also had the coconut cake which was light and fluffy. We both enjoyed the addition of raspberry, which I have never had with a coconut cake before. Prices were to be as expected for a nice evening out. We would definitely dine here again.

A group of 4 went in for dinner on Sunday night. Very nice ambiance. Cozy and comfortable. The place was decorated for the holidays very beautifully. Food was good for the most part. We had the penne “alla vodka” which was a bit under-seasoned. We loved the burrata and roasted squash, fantastic flavors and texture. We also really loved the parmesan polenta. Drinks were ok, nothing exciting. Ended the night with the toffee bread pudding-AMAZING! Overall great vibes, good food, great service. Would recommend.
