Redesigned and Ready to Welcome You

Dutch East Design has taken on the redesign of Primo and brought forward a complete new layout with 215 interior seats and 50 terrace seats. The overarching design narrative was to celebrate Chef Kelly’s heritage of Puglia Italy and bring those sensibilities within this space.

Restaurant bar with stools lined up along each side.

At Primo, fresh is the vital relationship between the kitchen and gardens that surround it. It is the morning communication that occurs between the chef and head grower, coordinating the perfect harvest to fit that night's menu and the perfect menu to fit that day's harvest. It's the essence of Orlando fine dining.

The Primo garden has three growing seasons that supply our Orlando Italian restaurant with the freshest ingredients on a daily basis. Fall and spring are considered our hot seasons. During that time, we plant vegetables and herbs that thrive at high temperatures. Even though our winter season is short, the cold growing period provides Primo with squash, cauliflower and different types of lettuce.

What will be on the menu of our Orlando Italian restaurant tonight? For fine dining at its best, stop by Primo and get a taste.
