We had hoped for a perfect evening as we were entertaining for business. Foie gras excellent, but other dishes lacking. Asparagus under cooked and skimpy on the prosciutto. Specialty salad pleasant but not worth massive praise. One plate cleared before all diners finished. Service attempts to be high class, but a bit too intrusive at times. A return visit not... More

Primo is always one of our favorites in Orlando. From great Prima to pastas and secondi they always do an exceptional job. One of our Favorites is the Antipasti The Rabbit Cavetelli was awesome.

My family and I visited Primo in May. Our experience was very contradictory, because although the service and the food were amazing, we would not return there. We got seated at a table that is very close to the kitchen area. Everything went well, It was very entertaining for the kids to see the cooks prepare the food, until they... More

We went over to JW Marriott from the Ritz Carlton as we had heard good things about. But our experience was quite the opposite. We waited 15 minutes for the table which wasn't bad. When we sat down we were introduced to the servers who were very polite and talked us through the menu. My Mum ordered a small portion... More

Truly wonderful food in an attractive setting. Primo is located inside the Marriott/Ritz Grande Lakes Resort. Options include tables with fine linens, a community table overlooking the presentation kitchen and even eating at a pretty bar in site of the kitchen. We're locals and have enjoyed the restaurant several times, as well as Primo's in Maine. The food is fresh,... More

Our server Jody was very helpful with wine and with suggestions from the menu He explained about the wonderful handmade pastas as well The best part, my friend and I could split every course allowing to enjoy 3 plates of food instead of 1 NOW.... THAT is a smart waiter!!

My husband and I visited the jwmarriott on a much anticipated vacation. We decided to visit primo because of the nice reviews. Well there the adventure begins! We started with a nice salad for myself and my husband had an antipasto app. Then the entrees arrived. My husband had a very nice pork dish and I ordered striped bass. My... More
