Delicious food, courteous service... – My husband and I do not agree with the former reviewers AT ALL...other than the strip-mall location (welcome to Salt Lake), it was fabulous. Our meals were wonderful, the service courteous, and the bill was reasonable.
The only thing I can say to the earlier bad reviews is I suppose if you expect Olive Garden prices you want Olive Garden food...if you want something far more complex and are used to dining out $30 for an entree hardly qualifies as exorbitant - at least certainly not anymore.
Over priced food – When we went into the restaurant it looked like a nice atmosphere they took our coats and were very hospitable. When we opened up the menu the prices were so expensive, a cheap diner was aroung $23. THe food was average something, that someone could purchase at the Olive Garden for half the price and a better taste, and more food. when we asked to split the check for the different couple that were with us they acted rude like it was appaling to split the check. Finally when the checks were split it took another 10 minutes for us to be able to pay because they were very unhospitable.
Olive garden by fine food price, bad wine selection – after couple years I return to SLC and Primo and after disappoint and overpriced food learned about new ownership, this is not anymore original Italian homemade food ,good for Olive garden customer but tree times expensive,
the best restaurant in town – to dimondcuter
dude this is restaurant not fast food, old gifts are not taken enywhere any more, you should be lucky they take it at all
go home and cook your dinner this is not for you
The Restaurant Beyong Its Expiration Date – Primo is premier in nothing but poor customer service. I was given a gift certificate to this restaurant, but failed to use it before it expired. I called ahead and asked if they would accept it, and was told it would be no problem. After the over-priced and unimpressively bland meal was served my waiter informed me, without apology, that he could not accept more than 50 percent of the gift certificate. I will not go back to Primo, and I certainly will reccomend it to no one!
Do not believe what you read – After reading the Tribunes report on this place i felt like it was worth a try. Big disappointment. Almost too dark to read menu, service was terrible, could not get service person to refill drinks. ordered 3 coffees after dinner and the server only filled 2 (got distracted) and had to be reminded about coffee. Food was overpriced for what you got. Ice tea served in beer glass, did not insure customers needs were met. CAN NOT RECOMMEND.
Traditional European food without nods to the trendy contrivances of the '90s. – The Scene
Located in yet another strip mall on 70th South, Primo has fresh flower arrangements, fine table linens, and subtle, mostly impressionistic paintings on the walls. Pleasant classical music plays just loud enough to soften and conceal the voices of other diners in the intimate room. Servers are European gentlemen who, for the majority of their lives, have obviously been working with fine foods and discerning patrons.
Their portions are generous, their textures delightfully discernible. The menu is not overstated, but includes pasta, veal, chicken, beef, and seafood, all with carefully prepared classic sauces. The Marsala-wine sauce is smooth and flavorful served over the veal. The garlic mushroom sauce that accompanies the chicken stuffed with spinach and pine nuts is exceptional as well. Diners should feel free to indulge in dessert at the end, such as the light and creamy zabaglione with strawberries. Primo has a full state liquor license and a wine list that grows continuously.
Service without compare – We had heard about Primo but had passed by it for years. The location never appealed to us. Now I feel foolish for having waited for long. The service, food and knowledgeable staff are definitely the best we have experienced. This establishment would be a find in any city. The decor with its reproductions of pieces by famous artists such as Monet was a surprising treat. Primo deserves to be in a more cozy setting.
