I dined there twice while staying at the Marriott. I had the scallop dish one night and the pork the second. Their food is outstanding. The pork dish is the chefs grandmother's recipe

The food and service is great. We had the pork (house special) and the steak. Both were cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Save room for dessert! The chocolate cake has a warm chocolate sauce in the center (like a lava cake) and is served with fresh mint gelato. There is a garden on site so everything is fresh.

Get the Pork dish. It is to die for! The fish is very fresh as well. Order the Italian Meatballs as an appetizer to share at the table.

Innovative menu using local ingredients. The seasonal arribiata were flavored with basil grown right on site and the house made pasta perfectly al dente. Don't overlook the contori-greens and beans with sausage and tomatoes had a balanced flavored with the right amount of spice -a meal in itself! For the finale be sure to check out the dessert drinks-scotch, Sauternes and don't forget the sambucco.

Excellent place to eat. It was a birthday celebration. When we returned to our room we had a surprise of a bottle of wine and cake and card. I can't explain how we appreciate that great surprise. The food was great. Five-star restaurant. will go again.

Great restaurant for a hotel, good service and food - I had the steak - well prepared and my husband had the linguini - also very good. Caymus by the glass. ricey, but it's attached to the Ritz Carlton, so that goes without saying.

The foi gras appetizer was excellent the crustinis served with it was chewy like it was toasted way before the cooks shift started. The dinner bread was on the chilly side .. and our Cabernet wine was very cold .. I believe it is stored a bit cold my glass had condensation on it.. now, on to the pastas , we ordered two pastas each lacked seasoning. Salt and pepper goes a long way. Even the child's pasta alfredo was bland . Doing a line check on all your sauces and misen place. Will open your eyes to consistent food.

Our food was outstanding, however our experience was less than optimal as a disruptive patron at the next table ruined our evening. Although management did stop by to apologize, it was quite unfortunate that it cost us $500 + to watch and hear an out of control woman curse and stomp back and forth in and out of the restaurant. Left us very unsettled and disappointed.

Everything could not have been better. Tomas was an excellent waiter. He let us take our time and basically be there for the entire evening. Excellent meatball appetizer, cream of eggplant soup and saltambucca. They give you several small yummy cookies at the end. I would definitely recommend.

Primo has a nice setting with choices of seating arrangements. The food was good. We had a glass of wine that was very musty. The server took it off the bill but gave us the impression that she did not believe us, rather than support our comment. Other than that ok.

I was skeptical to go to this restaurant with such few options on the menu. Lucky for us we went anyway! The drinks, pizza, and entrees were excellent. The only negative is that we did not save room for dessert. My guess is that it would ha e been delicious as well.

We always make a point of visiting Primo at least once during our annual family trip to Orlando and this time did not disappoint. We had wonderful, personal service from Juan, who was especially considerate of our 11 year old grandson. The classics like meatballs and freshly made pasta are wonderful, but there are delectable specials too, like fresh-caught swordfish with eggplant tappenade. We love Primo in Rockland, Maine too. Always the freshest ingredients made with care and creativity.
