The food at Primo is overall reasonably good. Fine. OK. No problems. But for the price it could be a bit better. A foie gras app was good (not great, but good). However, it was the smallest , most microscopic piece of foie gras I...More

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.
