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.

We had an excellent meal that was marred by the cold welcome and a main entrée that was barely warm. Except for those two downfalls, the rest of the evening was excellent thanks to our waiter, Jody, the same waiter that we had in December. He even recognized us before we could say anything. As usual the bread and food... More

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
