“Best Classic Continental/Italian in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

The owner, Samir goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. Some of the best dishes are not on the menu. If you want some of the best clams in a spicy marinara, just ask, they are wonderful. If you like veal chops, again, not on the menu but the best veal shop I have ever had. You should expect to pay about a $100 for two with very good entrees and an appetizer. The inside is very nice and clean, but a little dated, but adds to the charm of the place. His veal is very good and his rack of lamb, always good and big portions. I have eaten there probably 15 times and has always been very good. Trust it and go enjoy. Very good food. Look for their specials, as they really shine.

“Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2011

For a small restaurant in a strip mall, we were pleasantly surprised by this one. The food was excellent - accommodated my allergies. Pricing was reasonable and service excellent.

“One of Salt Lake's Few Truly Classy Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2008

When I was younger, Salt Lake had several quiet white-tablecloth restaurants where there was adequate space between tables, the staff was helpful and the owner was always present. As the years have worn on, these restaurants have become less common. Located in a dowdy stip mall, Primo offers good, solid continental and seafood dishes. We usually get the avocado stuffed with shrimp for an appetizer. When it's on the menu, we often get one of the seasonal fresh seafood items. Primo is not trendy or plastic or stunning, but it is a wonderful place to go for a fine meal in a warm and soothing atmosphere.
