Winner of 2016, 2017, 2018 Best Steakhouse, Best Italian Restaurant, Best Seafood Restaurant Best Martini, Best Romantic Restaurant, Best Unique Salad, Best Vegetarian Cuisine, Best Place to Dance, and Best Venue for Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties. Winner of 2016 Best New Restaurant. Primo sure does live up to it's name! PRIMO(meaning “The Best” in Italian) is our interpretation of the marriage of a classic American steakhouse and a signature Italian restaurant. Replete with soaring ceilings, Italian marble, and custom furniture, PRIMO's grand and dramatic dining instantly sets a luxurious yet comfortable tone. The atmosphere is rivaled only by the menu, which is composed of both Prime and Grass Fed steaks, chops, and classic Italian dishes inspired by the vast regions of Italy. PRIMO's menu is both familiar and sophisticated, and complimented perfectly by our 100+ bottle wine list.
