Very good food, a bit pricey, but similar to others in the Orlando area

After checking in to the hotel that day, we decided on the convenient Primo. The only mishap was our reservation that was supposedly made by the hotel wasn't made. The first courses and main dishes are not your run of the mill Italian, which is nice because there is plenty of that around. Tables... read more

We had eaten at Primo in Maine 3 times over the last 5 years but had no idea they had another restaurant in Orlando. The food was just as good as in Maine. The bread selection was ample and tasty, and the entrees excellent. Would highly recommend either location.

I got to eat at this restaurant twice. They offer the most delicious and fresh salads and unique. Also, be sure to order a veggie plate as they excel at cooking them perfectly.

All the food is good but we were annoyed by the children playing on the floor and doing ballet. This is supposed to be a higher end restaurant. Parents were oblivious to them,

My wife and I arrived in Orlando tired and a little hungry. Not wanting a big meal we went to Primo for pasta and really enjoyed it. I had mushroom tagliatelle and my wife had mushroom risotto and both were unexpectedly good, as was the service. Then we decided to have tiramisu for desert, one between us. Unfortunely what we...

We ate at the bar. The reservations for the night were totally booked, so we couldn't get a reservation. We didn't have to wait long. The menu is primarily Italian but limited pasta. We had the steak and scallops, both very good. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a dessert that is similar to beignets (but lighter). You... More

This restaurant at the hotel was good. The food was good with great presentation. The staff was attentive and warm. The menu was slightly limited but good overall. A lovely lunch.

Good, classic Italian with a fine wine list. Shared the meatball pizza as app- very nice. Pork Saltimboca was quite good- I would ask for demi-glaceon the side.

Fresh and exciting items created a special dinner for us. We chose to have a couple appetizers and half pastas. Everything was well prepared. My only complaint is they use a tablet as a wine list and the first two wines I selected were not available. With automation, selections should not be shown that are not available. We waited 20...

We could have driven or taken a cab 4 to 5 miles - but we decided to try what was close and we were not disappointed. We both enjoyed a fabulous meal and great service. Enjoy!
