Love the open kitchen. The staff was very helpful, and the menu has great offerings. The donut dessert is a must-do, and the seating is comfortable, and open.

Great Italian food! Unfortunately the patio was closed but the food was spot on! I had lamb that was so tender it fell if the bone... with a small tug of my fork. Loved it!

I went to this restaurant as part of a business group meal for around 30 people. The service was very good. The meal was also good. The private room with the ability to go out on the balcony made for a very nice evening.

Impeccable food and service. The swordfish was perfectly prepared, as was the chicken and pasta. Their beet and goat cheese salad was delicious. Desserts were marvelous! Full bar; valet available...beautiful restaurant in a beautiful hotel.

Our first visit to Primo was great - professional wait staff, good food and setting. We shared an Antipasti board - delicious. Ordered homemade Pappardelle Fungi as an entree and the Pan Seared Grouper - both were delicious and cooked as requested. Wine by the glass was good, although a wine list was never offered on either of our visits.... More

The Very Good rating splits the difference between the service (excellent) and food (average). Great menu, and selection. But the food is just sort of flat. The wine list seems very expensive. The beer list has good local drafts.

A busy restaurant means that staff has less attention on the guests. I had the tournedo and asked for medium-rare and got it medium-well. Of course I could have sent it out but given how busy the staff was I figured I had to wait a long time to get it out again.

Had a wonderful Valentine's dinner. We had great service, were well taken care of. Our server made a point to tell us that the Marriott has a garden and many of the items on the menu are grown there--the farm to table concept. The menu had pizza, salads, pastas and meat and fish entrees. Pastas can be 1/2 or whole... More
