Ate only once. Where have you been to an upscale Italian restaurant which has pizza on the menu but no pepperoni was available as a topping? Didn't seem like much variety. Also, given that this was a resort, would expect at least one or two basic menu items. Also, even for resort, prices seemed high. Did not go back during... More

The restaurant is awesome, the service and food excellent. 2 things, a little pricey and do not ask for the pizza funghi. Too salty and white sauce with a lot of cheese and only 3 mushrooms.

We loved our evening here and the attention to detail was awesome. Our server Juan went above and beyond to tell us all about the history of the restaurant and its female owner! Loved each dish and even the surprise tastes in between. I cannot rave enough about this place. If I was a local I would eat here often!

We came to Primo with great expectations, having heard amazing things about the Chef, Melissa Kelly, a James Beard Award recipient. Also, a relative, had dined on a couple occasions at their Rockland Maine location and highly recommended it to us. Ms. Kelly needs to supervise this Orlando location more closely and see what being done to her good name!... More

This restaurant was outstanding. I had heard good things and it did not disappoint. I had the Pappardelle Di Funghi e Madeira and the smaller portion was plenty for me, plus I had a salad. The food is amazing and I would definitely recommend it. Others in my group had the Grouper and they too said that was amazing. We... More

Limited menu without the traditional Italian Red sauces but all in all it was quite good. The pappardelle pasta dish was very good- chicken entree was excellent as was the pork saltimbocca. The pasta can be ordered in 1/2 portions. The Zeppalla desert very good but enough for 4. Service excellent but good delivery slow.
