Primo proves that organic can be as first rate as the food anywhere. They grow their own herbs. Service is very goo.

The meal started with Octypus. Tender and flavorful. Then the scallops were earthy, rich and filling. Then I had the Expresso gelato and zepollis for desert. All I can say is decadent. The food was spectacular and the service was superb. I had dinner with my sister and her family. The staff did a great job with three boys. Primo's... More

I was blown away! The food (and service) is top notch. Every bite was incredible, every aspect of our meal was perfect. Make sure to get your valet parking validated so you don't pay the $25 fee. I recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to have an experience incomparable to other dining experiences.

Staff were great. Apps and mains were very good. Pasta's were not as strong, but still good. Desserts were very good as well. Wine list was to the point. Small by the glass selection, but covered enough territory to find something that worked.

This was the last night of our 2 week trip to Florida - expensive, but superb food, wine & atmosphere. Very attentive service. We had one of the 3 bay seats further into the restaurant which felt very private. Fantastic meal, very memorable.

My husband and I finally got to dine at Primo in Orlando at the JW Marriott. I had read several reviews over the years and had always wanted to eat dinner there. OMG!! Loved it, not stuffy, felt like I was eating in someone's beautiful villa!! Our waitress and her wait staff were very professional and congenial. It was chilly... More

We waited until 9 pm for dinner because it was booked. Duck sausage pizza really smelled like ducks.They burnt the octopus. just can't match the prices with quality of food. Terrible restaurant. Do not recommend.

I don't usually get my hopes up over a hotel restaurant. My experience with Primo changed my mind. Given other tempting options, I chose to eat here every night of my stay, so that I would have yet another opportunity to try something wonderful or to eat one more Farmer's Salad. The service was kind and attentive and so personable.... More
