I googled this restaurant because I did not want to face Airport food before my flight home. Primo is two blocks from the airport almost on one of the runways. The people are very warm and welcoming and seemed to know the clients as they came in. The decor is unique and I expected the Rat Pack to be holding... More

We went to Primo's on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel when we were looking for a good place for a pizza. He recommended Primo's and we were glad we listened. It's a family oriented, family run Italian restaurant where everything is fresh and hand made. The pizza is wood oven baked and excellent. When you first... More

We were hungry for a wood fired oven pizza and we were not disappointed. The pizza were most excellent and tasted like we ate in Rome. Certainly would go again in a heartbeat. Very happy!

It is very charming with all the Italian touches and the relaxing music for your dinner. The food is good and the service was excellent. We only tried the pizza, but they have a very nice menu and specials. Be sure to save room for the dessert. We enjoyed the spumoni.

Went with friends for dinner. Restaurant very busy but was seated quickly. Service was very good. Food served in timely manner, considering how busy restaurant was. Ordered spaghetti w/ meatballs. Excellent, best I've had in recent memory (and I'm not a big Italian food fan). Portions are huge, basically I got two meals for the price on one, since I... More

A little pricey, so go during their "early bird" for better prices. Food was very good. It's old looking, but charming.

We had a very nice dinner here with friends. Pumpkin and Squash ravioli was great, as well as sausage with spaghetti. A nice glass of wine rounded it out.
