    The service was terrible, waited a long time to get someone to serve us some drinks. It was extremely expensive for the quality of the food and the service they offered. It was only a “buffet” and paid $400 for 4 ppl and it didn’t have a variety of food

    Food is very good, the ambiance is good, but the experience could have been heightened by better service. I own a restaurant myself so I am admittedly biased, but there were not many people in the restaurant, especially for a Friday night, and the wait staff didn't do anything to engage with us. I do know how hard it is to find any staff, let alone good staff, but do we have to lower our standards completely? The hostess was dressed in tights and a Tshirt... ok, but I felt a little bit confused, is this a fancy place or a casual place? The prices were ok, just over $100 for 2 with drinks and a dessert.

    Ambiance was great. Very nice restaurant. Food was cooked perfectly. I had salmon and asparagus and it was excellent. Our friends had lamb and a steak and they too were very happy with their dinner. I'm surprised the restaurant wasn't packed given the food prep quality and ambiance. It's definitely on the repeat list.

    My wife nor I had eaten at Primo's and thought we should give it a try. We like support locally owned restaurants especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent. The atmosphere and staff were very accommodating and made for a very pleasant dining experience. We will be returning to Primo's.

    Love this place! Excellent service. The staff was above board. The food was excellent. Don’t listen to the few reviews of bland food or poor service. Those are from people that either can never be made happy or don’t know good food. We travel a lot and eat five star restaurants all over. I would put this up there with the best. Love the atmosphere. Nice and quiet. Staff is very attentive to your needs. We had the stuffed veal chop and the wilted spinach salad. MAGNIFICENT! And the Chianti was wonderful! Will definitely be back.

    Disappointed in the limited menu options for the valentine's weekend as only a quarter of the regular menu choices were offered. Food was ok, a little bland especially for the price. Head waiter was a little MIA but the additional wait staff made up for her. Not the best itailan if you're craving good Italian food.

    The service is the primary reason this was a bad experience. As we entered, the hostess mentioned they were slammed, which seemed strange considering the empty dining room and very few people eating. Our waiter took almost 20 minutes to come over and tried to take our order without even offering menus. The food took over an hour from when we ordered to when it arrived. Our drinks initially came quickly, but no one offered to refill during the long wait. In fact, it felt like staff was intentionally avoiding us to not have to address the long wait. When our food finally did come, we were given a half hearted apology and told the long wait was because there were a couple tables ahead of us. the food did come it was fine, but nowhere near good enough to justify the high end prices Primo charges. Our waiter did not come to our table after initially taking our order even though I saw him taking other orders on the way out. The hostess had to bring us our check since our waiter was AWOL. After we had already paid and were about to leave, someone who I think was the manager came over to offer another half hearted apology and offered to bring a free desert. We were already on the way out and didn't want to wait around any longer so we declined.

    Perhaps this place was better BEFORE the pandemic, as reviews made me question our decision to dine there prior, but we decided to give it a chance. The decor is kinda strange and stark, all red and black and dark. We waited 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged that we had been seated. Our server was also the bartender andit appeared that the cook was waiting tables and they were somewhat short-staffed. Besides the gaggle of rude women who yelled across their table like they were the only ones in the restaurant, it was fairly quiet. The food was expensive and quite "meh". The Veal Marsala was weak, the sauce thin, the mushrooms added as an afterthought. My son-in-law got the surf and turf special and his steak was tough with zero seasoning. Their Caesar salad for two was barely enough for one and without anchovies, the dressing was kinda bland as well. The bread was warm and yummy, but other details were lacking. I wanted to love it, but with a bill of almost $500 (for 4) I expected a higher level of food and service. We try to support local businesses but this one needs to raise their game or they won't survive.

    We went out for a date night, this was the first time we had visited Primo. Our reservation was for 5:45 PM. We found the ambiance very intimate, very clean. The service was outstanding. I had the veal special and my wife the Chicken Marsala. From the pre-appetizer, to the bread to the entree's the food was amazing. It was a very enjoyable evening.

    Very good food with pleasant presentation. We loved the quiet 1960- ish ambiance with Sinatra and Dean Martin music. For the price, however, I would have expected fresh flowers and a candle on each table. We plan on returning.

    Chopped salad was chopped way too small, almost pulverized. It was almost mush. The rest of the food was fabulous! Almost ordered the special of the night, 8 oz filet mignon & lobster tail, until the waitress shared the price of $95. I settled for just the 8 oz filet mignon. It was nice enough we'll go back, just won't order chopped salad. Service was great!!
