Primo Italian American Cuisine
This is our go to place for great food and great service. Marko did a great job on our wine selection and as our server. Becky and Aubrey always top notch at the bar. Wonderful evening
Everything depends on what you like.. We like the food, ambience, noise level are all good. Our server is great. We now request her when we eat there. Portion are a good amount. You can expect to pay approx $80 a couple without alcohol. Lighting can be a little dark.
Great place to eat. Prices are reasonable and the food, especially the grilled Octopus is out of this world! My only complaint if you call it that is it's a tad bit cool inside. Need to adjust thermostat.
Always perfect in every way. Have never been the least bit disappointed in anything ordered. Outstanding!
Great dinner at primo, the new menu (many more choices) served us very well. Thanks to Marco for all the recommendations from both drink and food menu. Was a nice evening.
What a fabulous restaurant! The service was wonderful and everyone’s dinner was delicious. I will definitely return.
Menu change a month ago, lots of new choices . Always great service
Beautiful interior. Nice dining experience in Lake County, but a poor value for mediocre Italian. 350%+ mark up on many wines! Very friendly, but slow dinner service. Hosts should be more strategic when seating patrons. My table for two was surrounded by 3 tables/parties that had small/young children... Very uncomfortable and unexpected dining experience.
Awesome as usual. Our every time server was not in for our lunch but still great food and service.
This place is amazing every single time! Staff is extremely knowledgeable, and the food is out of this world.
Thus restaurant continues to provide superb food, great service, value and a wonderful experience!! I highly recommend you give it a try. If something is wrong they fix it immediately!!
Amazing food, outstanding service and beautiful ambience. The owner personally came over to our table to ensure we were all enjoying ourselves. Dining there was an absolutely delightful experience!
Primo provides awesome cuisine in large portions. The service was outstanding and the ambiance was beautiful with a romantic flair. For a local, fine dining experience, Primo is a one that can not be beat!
The food was good! Primo was very lively and had a lot going on. With that being said, they still had great service and the food came out in a timely manner. The portions were very generous, but makes sense for the price. I only ate about half my meal, so when my plate was taken I expected to get it "to go". It never came, so make sure to clarify if you want leftovers. Nevin was an amazing waiter and very knowledgable about the food and drinks. Definitely recommend this place for a nice, Italian dinner.
Service was very slow but food was good.
We had the Calamari app, Lamb Shank and 6oz fillet this time around. We have learned the correct cooking request for Steak is Medium well. We got it pink like we like it this time on the first try. the Lamb Shank is my favorite of the regular meals. We had the bread pudding again. Very filling, we had plenty for left overs. Danielle is a great server and always pleasant and helpful
noise level was too loud
Could not hear the person I was dining with
Food was good
A little pricey
Wonderful service and food, great value! Our server, Nevin, is one of the VERY best we've encountered anywhere. Thanks Nevin for a GREAT experience. Our hosts, Elliott and Nicole Khyat, made us feel as if we were welcomed into their home. Thanks, and BTW the Strawberry Shortcake Rocked
We were celebrating a birthday here. It was a spontaneous stop on our day. The food was ridiculously good and everyone made the birthday feel really special. A huge thank you to them! I would go back again and again.
Another outstanding visit to Primos. Great service, wonderful food.
Nevin was great as always. He was managing that night, but was still able to make the experience amazing. Food and atmosphere was great.
The food tasted very good and the service was always done with a smile as well as quickly. The restaurant looked elegant and the food was put together with passion, I have already recommended and convinced many at my office to spend a wonderful evening there.
Out with girlfriends
We tried 3 new foods this time. Truffle/Bruschetta appetizer. We were surprised that the bread wasn't crunchier but it was easy to eat with it softening up. good but we probably won't do it again. if the breaded clam had been an entree and not app. I would have ordered it.
my wife had the Chicken Picatta, very good. she prefers the butter sauce to just about any other.
I tried the surf and turf mac and cheese. it was very good, and there was enough to bring home for my mom's lunch. the only thing I would change it make it cheesier. it was a very good pasta/lobster dinner, but I like more gooey cheese in my mac and cheese.
We had the creme bruelle cheesecake for dessert. I took awhile for the creme brulle taste to come through, but we would keep it in rotation.
Danielle our server did her normal wonderful job.
amazing meal. thanks Marco
Absolutely loved everything from the amazing food to the wonderful service. Our waiter was Zachary, can’t say anything more positive about him. Pure gentleman and great character. Would love to return and be privileged to get him again.
Favorite place for ambiance service and wuality food
Liked the expanded brunch, most food was good, but not great. Service was excellent...big crowd and lots of commotion but staff was hustling. Crab legs a definite bonus! Would have expected pop/juice/etc. to be included in price, along with a mimosa for Moms. We will be back for dinner.
Service was excellent. Brunch - so many options! Seafood, omlette station, regular breakfast items, full kids buffet, did i mention the seafood?, full dessert spread with chocolate fountain. Only holdup was that beverages were not included - and $4 for a basic cup of coffee is pretty steep. Would've thought coffee was included. But other than than amazing! Will definitely be back.
Went for mother's day brunch buffet. I was very disappointed when the check came. I was charged over $15/kid for a 3 and 5 year old. Not to mention, I was charged $5.50/milk for my kids.
We always have an amazing time here. The food is fantastic, the ambiance is good for dates, or just spending time with family. They had a live band Saturday night which was fun and refreshing. Normally we have seafood here, as it's just amazing. I can't say enough good things about their octopus appetizer or Lobster and Shrimp risotto. This time we did the Lamb Shank, Rack of Lamb, Lasagna, and Chicken Parmesan. All of us cleared our plates, except for the person who ordered the Lasagna, as the piece he received was bigger than his head. You won't be disappointed eating here. And Danielle is amazing. Ask for her section if she's working that night. She'll take very good care of you.
Love the selections of the new, expanded menu
Everything was excellent except for the fact the host sat me at one table, and my guests at another in a completely different section, and never connected the two, nor did he apologize. It was 45 minutes before I was connected with my guests, as they didn't have a cell phone, and were seated in a completely different area. Other than the host acting completely irresponsible and careless and unapologetic to top it off, that was the most annoying part of the experience, the rest was great, our waitress was really great and the food was very good as well. Will go back.
New menu, love it.
We had a full dinner off with some things from the new menu. We started with the Grilled Octopus. that was excellent. Nice potatoes served in this. it is almost a salad. My wife had the saltimbocc with Chicken. Very nice sauce comes with this. I had the Vesuvio with the Pork chop. We had to send it back since the meat was very rare. When it came back it was perfect though. I may have this again. We tried a new dessert White Chocolate Lavender Raspberry Ombré Cake. The lavender layers were light and tasty. The Green layers were dry though. We'd recommend having a fruit layer to keep the flavors together. It was Very big and easy to share. the frosting was very good but we won't have it again. Our server Danielle continues to be the main reason we keep coming back so often. She make us feel like family.
Took my mom there this time and she loved it!!!!! Great place for dinner!!!
Hidden gem in Gurnee. Who knew?? Delicious food. Fabulous attentive service. Grilled octopus appetizer was perfect to share. Lamb chop lollipops made a great entree. Perfect date night location. We will definitely be back.
EVERYTHING about Primo is wonderful. The food, ambiance, staff and menu are excellent. We have been here 4 times and can't wait to go back. The wine list is very impressive. The bar tenders create wonderful martinis. The servers and bus staff are professional, courteous and very attentive. Excellent place to just hang out and have a great martini. Looking forward to going back soon.
Brunch food was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and responsive.
everything was outstanding!!! had a reservation and was seated immediately, server very pleasant and energetic.
