“Awesome Duck!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We recently took the whole family to Primo. I have to say this was an excellent and memorable meal. I had the duck. It was the best duck I've ever had. The taste was amazing. The perfectly crisped skin (which I don't normally like on dick), really added to the flavor. We also had a half portion of a pasta dish for starters. Once again the mix if flavors made for a truly unique dish. I also liked the draught brown ale from Tampa. I highly recommend Primo and will certainly be back!

“First rate organic food”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Everything everyone had was excellent. The food is expensive, but superb. Many things are grown on site and the others are sourced locally as much as possible. Highly recommended.

After reading the reviews we choose Primo for dinner while staying at the JW Marriott for 5 days. We were seated in a side room/area so we felt the ambience was not the same feeling as if we sat in the main restaurant. We have a pizza for an appetizer and it was very good - should have stopped there. I had the pork and my husband had a pasta entree. Both were served cold/luke warm. We told the server since he asked and he would have taken it back but it was late and we were both tired and wanted to leave. He did bring us complimentary dessert. The service was great but for what we spent we left disappointed. Nice wine list but most bottles are priced very high.

“Very good food and wine, but pricey”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

While you should expect to pay a premium for food and beverages at Primo simply because it is located in the JW Marriott property, the food was quite good -- soup and salad with very fresh ingredients, followed by pasta dishes with freshly made pasta. You can get the pasta dishes in half-portions, which were totally sufficient for us. The wine was wonderful, but, again, really pricey. If you choose to stay on the property at the Marriott, Primo is a fine place to dine.

“Make reservations as soon as you check in!”

Excellent food and service. As I noted above, this place gets booked in a hurry every night, and for good reason1
