We are honored that Primo has been designated a Recommended Restaurant in the inaugural Florida 2022 MICHELIN Guide. Led by award-winning chef Melissa Kelly, our restaurant serves authentic Italian cuisine, featuring organic produce and a carefully crafted wine list.

All seafood is also locally sourced from Florida waters, including clams from Cedar Key, white shrimp and squid from Cape Canaveral, and Snapper, grouper, and other seasonal catch from Ponce Inlet. Mountain Trail Farm in Clermont, FL provides Primo with whole pigs, which are prepared several different ways.

    Disappointed. The limited menus and casual service al a carte was not what we expected for Mothers Day! Ten consecutive years of Mothers Day at the JW and 3 at Ritz——each before something to brag about—-this year was far from a celebration. The chefs presentations were great, but the whole “commercial” experience was far from past years buffets and table cloth dining….we left hungry and with a so-so experience in our memory. Too bad!

    Juan C and team were outstanding. Oyster appetizer was not what we expected…lemon breadcrumbs overpowered the other ingredients and made for a dry/gritty texture. The Cobia was outstanding and the farrow in the clam sauce made the dish. The Rigatoni was ok…needed more spices…large portion. The bread pugging was very good as well. Would return on our next visit.

    Took long to get our table, then seating couch was uncomfortably poor, table was set but you could tell and see it was dirty and wet, with water marks from glasses of a previous clients, and more. We couldn’t stand to it literally. We stand and left. Expectation was a Michelin restaurant and such, reality was not close to a nice Friday night dinner.

    Entree took over an hour to be delivered. We had pasta. Server was very good but had no control over an obviously slow kitchen. No visit or apologies from management. Not what I expect from a JW Marriott restaurant.

    Went to Primo to celebrate my Mom’s Birthday! We had such a fabulous time. We sat out in the patio to watch the gorgeous sunset. Dara was our server and she was awesome! We enjoyed the Farmer Salad, if you like dressing ask for extra it is divine, the bread service is 100% worth it. The octopus was perfectly cooked and so flavorful. For entrees we enjoyed the ribeye which comes with a delicious salsa verde bone marrow. We also ordered the cavatelli. The steak was cooked perfectly and plated beautifully. The cavatelli is made from scratch in house and you can taste the difference. We had three desserts and they were all incredible too! I can not wait to come back again! Thank you Primo for such an amazing evening!

    The baked oysters were cold. Fish was overcooked. Short rib pasta was delicious but the lobster with it added nothing. Posted as business casual but people wearing cutoff jean shorts and flip flops were the norm rather than exception. Michelin Recommended? I don’t see it. We paid $300 for nice dinner and got a $60 dinner from a chain place. Cannot recommend

    Brandon our waiter was great with the assistance of Eli. The food was awesome and would recommend trying their bolognese or the tuna carpaccio for sure. Only issue was a large table seated next to us with approx 2-3 year old boys who had a screaming competition. Our waiter seemed distant after that started for the second half of our visit and never seemed to be addressed by the parents or a member of the staff . That aside it was great food.
