Primo Italian American Cuisine
Primo sure does live up to it's name!
PRIMO(meaning “The Best” in Italian) is our interpretation of the marriage of a classic American steakhouse and a signature Italian restaurant.
Replete with soaring ceilings, Italian marble, and custom furniture, PRIMO's grand and dramatic dining instantly sets a luxurious yet comfortable tone. The atmosphere is rivaled only by the menu, which is composed of both Prime and Grass Fed steaks, chops, and classic Italian dishes inspired by the vast regions of Italy. PRIMO's menu is both familiar and sophisticated, and complimented perfectly by our 100+ bottle wine list.

The wife and I recently dined here for the first time and had a fantastic experience. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic date night. We sat in a corner booth that was private and cozy. Our server was attentive and friendly, happily giving her opinion of some of the items on the menu we were considering. We started with Bruschetta which was heavy garlic but I like that so delicious. For dinner we split a Caesar salad which they mix and the table and I ordered the red pepper ravioli. Everything was fresh and pleasant while being a satisfying, tasteful amount of food. For dessert we split a wonderful piece of cheesecake. The total was an excellent deal for the quality of the food and service. People are sleeping on this place. Winter is a great time of year to have some Italian comfort food!
This is our go to place for special occasions. Marco is always our choice for service. Excellent evening. Plus Becky and Aubrey always take care of us at the bar.
Food was fantastic but service could have been better. Had to ask 3 times for refill on iced tea, server served 1 guest in our party the soup when it was as mentioned that that guest didn’t want any. Server read back order and repeated it back incorrect even though the guest had just ordered it. Guest ordered augratin potatoes and server said back broccoli. Another guest asked for only cheese and bacon on his American burger and got neither on his burger.
Amazing food, excellent service -- highly recommend!
I really enjoyed eating at Primo. Went there the first time this week and found the food and service extraordinary. The food was delicious and serving portions just right. Zachary, our waiter was spectacular. All the staff were on top of things making sure we had everything we needed. I would totally recommend Primo to anyone looking for excellent food, great service, romantic ambiance and a well made French Martini.
Delightful dinner. Nice wine (Super Tuscan), great food, wonderful service.
The ambience is fabulous but the fact they they are constantly out of either food or wine is starting to get annoying. We have never been there once and we have been there at least 6-8 times when they haven’t been out of something or several things and more then once, the bottles of wine we choose. Have a smaller wine menu but stock the wine you offer. Also, on a Tuesday at 7:00pm, you shouldn’t be out of a dish, especially a special. We keep coming back because of the ambiance but I am getting tired of the same old thing. This needs to be fixed!!
The food at Primo is always great. My husband and I come here once a week (at least ) because of the great experience. Service is personal, knowledgeable and makes every trip a good one. Marco, Ryan and Tanner are all such good servers. You can not go wrong with any of the specus
Great food, nice people at a very reasonable price!
Disappointed and expected more than just average Italian fare.
Primo always makes it a special night out. Food is fantastic. I have been coming here for several yrs, tried everything on the menu. No disappointments. GREAT personal service . Love Ryan, Marco and Tanner
Always good food. We took friends visiting from Miami, and they enjoyed their meals.
Ryan, our server for the evening, is the best waiter/server my wife and I have had in many, many years. There have been good ones in the past. but we rate Ryan the BEST!
Great food. Very romantic. Great service. We ordered the wafts meatball for appetizer, i ordered the spicy fruita de Mar and my boyfriend ordered the chicken Parmesan. We also ordered the sangria and grimlet for drinks. He was very impressed with the grimlet(vodka substitute) it’s his new favorite drink. 5 stars! I’d definitely come back.
We had a great time and food/service was excellent!
Great service and super cute atmosphere. Cocktails were great. Food was just Ok.
Great food and excellent service. Love this place.
Food was delicious. Server was attentive without being annoying. Ambiance is great. This is rapidly becoming one of my ten top restaurants. Prices are reasonable.
The food was excellent! The wait staff was very knowledgeable and made our dining experience top notch. We will be dining there again.
Service at this restaurant was extremely slow. Waiter kept telling us soon. We had to ask many times for refill of everything, from bread to salads.
Great for dinner and cocktails. Service and food are both outstanding and it is a good value as well. Atmosphere is upscale and so is the experience. Worth adding to your list of restaurants you want to try!
Always a wonderful meal And great service. Specials are usually unique and tasty. Marco can pair a wine for you
Our filet was over done but our server Marko took care to get us one perfectly cooked. Everything else was perfect This is our go to spot for special occasions
Sunday brunch at Primo is great. Highly recommended.
Fabulous all the way around. Very attentive waiter and staff. Food was exceptional. A little louder than we cared for but it didn't spoil the evening.
It was very disappointing. Three at our table had pasta dishes that were undercooked.
I should have taken a hint from the empty parking lot. When they started serving brunch, they used to be full and food and service were good. Now, service was mediocre ( and I am being generous) and food was bad. They also took off all desserts, like cookies, cake or brownies, and they bring to your table a 15 cent strawberry chocolate covered, a cannoli and a bun, like those you get in a pack at supermarket. Do not even get me started on the prime rib. Never again!
The wait staff, and management, was extremely attentive to all requests. Our waiter Ryan, was superb and went beyond our expectations for service to make our dinner very enjoyable. Based on our experience we would join the wine club and plan our next dinner at Primo.
Our absolute favorite restaurant! Our regular waiter even has our order down pat! The food is amazing, the atmosphere is gorgeous, you really can’t go wrong!
I absoltely love the chopped salad. Marco is also my favorite server. If you come in ask for him!
This was our first time here. The service was great, the food was super, and the decor is lovely. The staff is very attentive. Nice size portions, you don't feel stuffed when you are done. The cake is definitely shareable. It is ginormous. We will be back again. My only complaint is that I wish the carrot cake had a sea salt caramel not a super sweet caramel....
Food and service was great! The artichoke dip and tortellini in vodka sauce was delish.
Surprisingly mediocre given all of the awards and accolades. Couple of bright spots: tableside Caesar Salad was great as was the wine. Braised Lamb with Pappardelle pasta - lamb was average; pasta was a fail (thick and stuck together). Red Sauce made the dish heavy.
Good choices on menu, good prices and friendly service.
Had to hunt down the waiter to get service a few times.
Servers Andrew was awesome! Desserts were amazing.
We've been in the area for about a year and this was our first time to Primo. It did not disappoint! We absolutely loved it and can't wait to return. The lasagna and ravioli were amazing as was the service and ambiance. Great local find!
Amazing place! Had the best steak in my life!! The service is outstanding. Would always come back
Not as good as it was the first year they opened. The food is just not the same.
Very well staffed, great service all around. Appetizers were amazing. The entrees were a B but everything else gets an A. Will definitely return.
