Wow! Chef Kelly does not disappoint. Cod cakes, halibut, profiteroles- every bite more delicious than the last. Front of the house working like clockwork. Food coming out of the kitchen exquisite. Primo is better than ever! You go, girl.

We went to Primo because we didn't see many other options for a high quality dining experience, but ended up really enjoying it! In terms of location, it's in a cute house and seats people on both floors. The tables are a bit close together,...More

Having eaten here two years ago I was excited to return and had high expectations based on the previous meal we had. Did not disappoint, everything was perfect and love walking around the farm. Wait staff was great, very attentive and helpful in making choices.

Most of the food is grown right at the premises. Out back. Therefore, it is as fresh as can be! All was cooked to perfection. The service was also amazing. Totally worth a trip to Rockland, Maine!

Although this restaurant has locally grown product, the servings were so small that we had to go to another restaurant for more food. I had an appetizer and a glass of wine. My husband had chicken and our bill was $76. They don't have lobster...More
