We were excited to eat at primo as it seemed to be the nicest restaurant at the resort and we both love Italian food. The service was friendly, but the food wasn't great and it took over two hours to eat from start to finish.

Wonderful attentive staff. They let me put up my own decorations. Unfortunately the starter "cheese and charcuterie plate" was a dissaster. The mains however were good. We sat outside on the patio which was nice and intimate for our party of 14.

It's pricey but it's so good you won't care. I had venison that was perfect and all of my guests loved their dinners. Nice wine list and solid wait staff.

On Thursday they have all you can eat mussels. On other nights they offer other all you can eat meals. Our large party enjoyed everything they ordered. Service was good. Any time you have a large group you cannot expect to be served as quickly...More
