Had dinner with my husband while staying at the JW Marriott. Good food, great bartender and service. A bit pricey though. Would try again.

Have eaten at this Primo many times, and once each at the other two Primos. Their flagship up in Maine remains the benchmark for this wonderful creation by Melissa Kelly. Having dined here over several years I can tell you that the food is generally excellent, the wait staff always outstanding, and the ambience elegant. We were told last night... More

While staying at the Lakeshore Reserve timeshare, wife had to try JW Marriott. We luckily ended up at Primo for dinner. While not an extensive menu, what food they offered was excellent. Wife ordered the awesome antipasti, and shared some with me - nice variety of tasty meats, cheeses, and even duck and honeycomb. Entrees - I had the pork... More

I was really surprised at how delicious this restaurant was. I loved that they offered "1/2 portions" for those of us with a lighter appetite.

Three of us ordered the hand made pasta and it was unexceptional. The gnocchi was actually mushy. One of us ordered the house specialty pork which was visually unappealing and of no significance. The $18 glass of wine was also not worthy of the price. Service - not terrible but again, not the service you would expect for the prices.... More

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Chef Melissa's restaurant in Maine that is amazing and when I found out she had a restaurant here I had to go. Sat at the bar and the bartender was very attentive. The food was superb!

Great food every time we go. Disappointed that the foie gras was removed from the menu this night. The pasta dishes were both delicious & the pistachio cannoli is the best I've ever had. Still dreaming of it.

I ate here when I first checked in as we were starving and we love Italian food. The food tasted horrible not seasoned well and a overpowering taste of garlic everywhere! I never knew that its possible to have a bad pizza as it is the simplest dish to make at an Italian restaurant. Your better off ordering pizza hut... More
