    We had open table reservations for 10:30pm, which was 30 minutes before they closed. We were rushed to be seated by the server and told we had to order right then and there because their kitchen was in the middle of closing down. We ordered the meatball appetizer, the chicken parm, and the handmade gnocchi pasta. The meatballs were excellent, but when I asked for extra sauce, the server told us the cook already discarded any extra sauces. Then, when our dinners came out, the chicken was chewy, and the gnocchi was very paste-y. I think the biggest negative aspect of our visit was that we were rushed from start to finish and when your spending a $100 bucks, you want to enjoy the experience, especially when the restaurant received high ratings, it was very disappointing. The main takeaway from this should be to adjust the restaurants hours on the Open Table App for reservations. Don't offer 10:30 reservations if you're closing down your kitchen at that time...

    This Italian restaurant inside the double tree was a pleasant surprise. We had a 7 reservation and were seated promptly. The open kitchen was bustling and we were told the specials. We opted to split the skirt steak and carbonara. Both dishes were outstanding. The steak was a perfect medium and the pasta was al dente, rich and delish. The only negative was although our table was bigger- the place settings were placed so that we were both sitting on an uncomfortable wooden divider. We were able to adjust the table and our seating to be comfy. The wines by the glass were tasty and the servers were knowledgeable. I think it would be good of servers helped one another. A female had cheese at the table next to us and kind of ignored us asking for the cheese. Also- we had trouble finding place and they didn’t mention they were not n the hotel. The food was great! We would go again!

    Primo's exceeded our expectations. We ate both lunch and dinner and both times the food was freshly made and excellent. The meatball appetizer was served in an excellent meaty sauce with plenty of seasoning. My lasagna arrived right out of the oven and was delicious one it cooled enough to eat. Service was prompt and unobtrusive. Dinner for two without alcohol and as shared creme brulee dessert (also excellent) was about $100.

    Service was good as were the drinks. Food was uninspiring for the price. Crowded tables inside and loud. Will try again on another night - weather was bad so perhaps everyone was crowded in a small space and the service team and chefs stressed. I hope it is not always this way.

    Disappointed- the chicken parm was tasteless. Salad was only ok. Server would not switch dressing. Took longer than we thought & a little expensive for what we got.

    first of all the food was outstanding from everything starting with the iceberg lettuce with homemade blue cheese dressing.. super chilled and crisp to the delicious chicken Milanese with suated vegetables...( replacing the spaghetti as we have diabetes 2 and can't have the carbs) to the most terrific desserts. the..tiramisu was to live for ( not saying die for) as it was so flavorable and made on the premises, as well as the sponge rum cake with the delicious flavors and strawberries! Also we took home the margarita pizza..couldn't resist after seeing it served at a nearby table!!! great service..Very friendly and efficient and a spotless clean restaurant with comfortable seating and surprisingly low nosie volume for being at the entrance to a small mall in the Grand! We'll be back. Miami spice or not!

    Nice place, but maybe because it was full, it felt hot and noisy, food was great and also the service, the drinks, not so good. It was great for Miami Spice value.

    Our waiter, Leonardo was excellent. Although we were sitting outside, he was always mindful of us and we never felt like we sat around waiting for service. We had the homemade pasta, which was good.
