Primo Italian American Cuisine
We were celebrating a birthday here. It was a spontaneous stop on our day. The food was ridiculously good and everyone made the birthday feel really special. A huge thank you to them! I would go back again and again.
Another outstanding visit to Primos. Great service, wonderful food.
Nevin was great as always. He was managing that night, but was still able to make the experience amazing. Food and atmosphere was great.
The food tasted very good and the service was always done with a smile as well as quickly. The restaurant looked elegant and the food was put together with passion, I have already recommended and convinced many at my office to spend a wonderful evening there.
Out with girlfriends
We tried 3 new foods this time. Truffle/Bruschetta appetizer. We were surprised that the bread wasn't crunchier but it was easy to eat with it softening up. good but we probably won't do it again. if the breaded clam had been an entree and not app. I would have ordered it.
my wife had the Chicken Picatta, very good. she prefers the butter sauce to just about any other.
I tried the surf and turf mac and cheese. it was very good, and there was enough to bring home for my mom's lunch. the only thing I would change it make it cheesier. it was a very good pasta/lobster dinner, but I like more gooey cheese in my mac and cheese.
We had the creme bruelle cheesecake for dessert. I took awhile for the creme brulle taste to come through, but we would keep it in rotation.
Danielle our server did her normal wonderful job.
amazing meal. thanks Marco
Absolutely loved everything from the amazing food to the wonderful service. Our waiter was Zachary, can’t say anything more positive about him. Pure gentleman and great character. Would love to return and be privileged to get him again.
Favorite place for ambiance service and wuality food
Liked the expanded brunch, most food was good, but not great. Service was excellent...big crowd and lots of commotion but staff was hustling. Crab legs a definite bonus! Would have expected pop/juice/etc. to be included in price, along with a mimosa for Moms. We will be back for dinner.
Service was excellent. Brunch - so many options! Seafood, omlette station, regular breakfast items, full kids buffet, did i mention the seafood?, full dessert spread with chocolate fountain. Only holdup was that beverages were not included - and $4 for a basic cup of coffee is pretty steep. Would've thought coffee was included. But other than than amazing! Will definitely be back.
Went for mother's day brunch buffet. I was very disappointed when the check came. I was charged over $15/kid for a 3 and 5 year old. Not to mention, I was charged $5.50/milk for my kids.
We always have an amazing time here. The food is fantastic, the ambiance is good for dates, or just spending time with family. They had a live band Saturday night which was fun and refreshing. Normally we have seafood here, as it's just amazing. I can't say enough good things about their octopus appetizer or Lobster and Shrimp risotto. This time we did the Lamb Shank, Rack of Lamb, Lasagna, and Chicken Parmesan. All of us cleared our plates, except for the person who ordered the Lasagna, as the piece he received was bigger than his head. You won't be disappointed eating here. And Danielle is amazing. Ask for her section if she's working that night. She'll take very good care of you.
Love the selections of the new, expanded menu
Everything was excellent except for the fact the host sat me at one table, and my guests at another in a completely different section, and never connected the two, nor did he apologize. It was 45 minutes before I was connected with my guests, as they didn't have a cell phone, and were seated in a completely different area. Other than the host acting completely irresponsible and careless and unapologetic to top it off, that was the most annoying part of the experience, the rest was great, our waitress was really great and the food was very good as well. Will go back.
New menu, love it.
We had a full dinner off with some things from the new menu. We started with the Grilled Octopus. that was excellent. Nice potatoes served in this. it is almost a salad. My wife had the saltimbocc with Chicken. Very nice sauce comes with this. I had the Vesuvio with the Pork chop. We had to send it back since the meat was very rare. When it came back it was perfect though. I may have this again. We tried a new dessert White Chocolate Lavender Raspberry Ombré Cake. The lavender layers were light and tasty. The Green layers were dry though. We'd recommend having a fruit layer to keep the flavors together. It was Very big and easy to share. the frosting was very good but we won't have it again. Our server Danielle continues to be the main reason we keep coming back so often. She make us feel like family.
Took my mom there this time and she loved it!!!!! Great place for dinner!!!
Hidden gem in Gurnee. Who knew?? Delicious food. Fabulous attentive service. Grilled octopus appetizer was perfect to share. Lamb chop lollipops made a great entree. Perfect date night location. We will definitely be back.
EVERYTHING about Primo is wonderful. The food, ambiance, staff and menu are excellent. We have been here 4 times and can't wait to go back. The wine list is very impressive. The bar tenders create wonderful martinis. The servers and bus staff are professional, courteous and very attentive. Excellent place to just hang out and have a great martini. Looking forward to going back soon.
Brunch food was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and responsive.
everything was outstanding!!! had a reservation and was seated immediately, server very pleasant and energetic.
This is first time we've been to one of the breakfast buffets. It was nice to be able to try a little of a lot off the menu. I don't get baked clams too often and the Beef Tips were done perfectly.
The only item that we didn't like was the Chicken Cacciatorie. it was too dry.
We brought my Mom for Easter Brunch.
One thing I wanted to try but didn't see from the menu was the sweet potato hash.
The one thing I wished would have been on their that wasn't on the menu was the Bread pudding.
I wanted my mom to try it,
First time at Primo and our Easter Brunch was terrific!! So much seafood, breakfast items, meat, and desserts! We absolutely loved it! Will be back for dinner!
the waiter never came back to check on us..we wanted to pay and leave,we had to wave him down to ask for our check. they need more waiters. he was waiting on a bunch of tables. i believe only 2 waiters were available that day.
Very good food & service.
Nice wine list.
Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was fantastic. Our waitress truly made us feel like we were at home. The food was tasty, well prepared. However, the prices were a bit high.
We love Primo! A lovely local restaurant, that’s not a chain. Food is unique and always delicious!!
Celebrating my nieces upcoming wedding! The service was wonderful, the ambiance was lovely and the bread and dinner was amazing!
The service was excellent and the food even better! We stopped here before a show and we were not disappointed. The portion size was generous so bring a big appetite or plan on taking home some leftovers. We were from out of town but found the restaurant easy to find. The ambiance was better than we had anticipated and the drink selection was extensive. We will return to this spot the next time we are in town!
Simple delicious. Excellent wine selection. Wait staff catered to every need.
Friday night - The best part of our time is the service. We always know Danielle will make sure everything is running smooth for night out. We started with the Crispy Calamari as a starter. So good we got extra cheese and sauce. This is our favorite app so far. My wife had the Sausage and Ricotta Parpadelle, very wide noodles. nice alfrado sauce, she was very pleased. I had the Guiness-braised Short rib with Bourbon Onion Mac and Cheese - this was the standout of night. The ribs were as good as the Waygu ribs from last time.
The only disappointment for the evening was the Brownie Cheesecake Cannoli. These were full sized, which is why we got them but they only filling at each end. Also they were runny. Danielle offered to take them off the bill or get us something else but we were full and we know we will be back.
We have been coming here a couple times each month and this visit was one of our best. Our server Danielle had never taken care of us before. She made our visit so enjoyable. We have enjoyed all the staff here but Danielle was incredible! We had our 8 year old daughter with us this visit. Danielle engaged all of us with her caring and concerned conversation. Food is always fantastic. We had a very nice gentleman prepare our table side Caesar salad and he followed up during our meals to make sure we were enjoying everything. Fantastic teamwork. Everyone shows great care for you here. Very happy we were here on 1/2 price bottled wine night. Had a fantastic red we enjoyed with our dinners. Thank you for a great night out!
As always, a delicious afternoon meal w/ family. Marko provided perfect service and recommended yet another fine wine selection for our meal. Excellent steak. Highly recommended.
This place is great! Excellent service, food, and cocktails! We’ve find here many times and are never disappointed!
The ambience is great, great for nice romantic date or a quiet family dinner. You can dress classy or business casual. Our 8 year old loved the food. They have a kids menu. I am a vegetarian and its hard to find good italian food that is not overflowing with cheesy sauces. I tried the Red Pepper Ravioli and it was AMAZING!!! Very tasty and not too saucy. This will be our go to Italian for sure👍
We sat at the bar and the bartender was excellent with food suggestions.
Always a very good experience. We frequent this establishment!
Nevin was a great server!
Our server was excellent (Marco) and provided wonderful recommendations.
