We have eaten at this restaurant several times. The food is always interesting and delicious. The staff is very friendly. Ask for Jodi or Michelle and a window seat.

We really liked this Melissa Kelly restaurant, enjoying dinner twice during our stay next door at the Ritz Carlton. Everything is prepared to order and the kitchen is meticulous about tasting every dish that goes out the door. I had the wild Salmon both times and it was as good as it gets, perfectly prepared. The Tomato leaf pasta with... More

Located in the JW Marriott hotel in Orlando (with outposts in Tucson and Rockland, ME), Primo is a good choice if you are staying at the JW, or the Ritz next door. Primo offers a varied menu with options including pasta dishes, salads, pizza, steaks, and of course fish and chicken. We had a group of 8 and everyone ordered... More

We were staying in the nearby Lakeshore Reserve and, having eaten previously at Citron and Normans', decided it was time to try Primo. The Chef, Melissa, was not present but her Team served us a memorable meal. Following a small but tasty amuse bouche and cocktails we moved on to our appetisers. My wife was given a small taster bowl... More

Since Italian doesn't get much play in our travels, we thought it would be a great anniversary celebration experience. We started with the amazing Heirloom Tomato Tartare. I had to be prodded by our server, Joy. OM goodness. It was easier to trust her on the "Farmers salad" and she was oh so right again. For our main courses we... More

Been there some weeks ago. I was there already and was not impressed, but I thought I would give it another chance. Unfortunately my first idea was right, this restaurant is not what you expect and I guess it is well over rated. Starting with the menu, it is incredible that such a level of restaurant is not even able... More

We have had dinner at Primo several times over the years and always had superb meals. Until this trip we would have given Primo 5 stars. This time we started off with Pan Seared Hudson Valley Foe Gras and baked oysters. Both were prepared properly and were delicious. My wife had Sautéed Scaloppine of Pork Saltimbocca for her main, she... More

We went here as a family three times whilst on holiday. It was simply outstanding in every way. When I read some of the negative reviews I really feel that some people are impossible to please. Please ignore those reviews because I really think they cannot be talking about this restaurant. If you want a fantastic dining experience eat here.... More

Most hotel restaurants are 'ok' at best. This was a happy surprise! Very imaginative italian food, prepared with impeccable care! Be aware that the wine list is enthusiastically priced, but there are a few good values on the list. We have eaten here twice over a period of two years, and have been very impressed both times.

Beautiful views. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Make sure you walk through the organic garden. It's beautiful. Especially at dusk.
