If you’ve been longing for a romantic getaway but it’s just not the in cards this year, a trip to Primo will be sure to transport you to the rural landscape of which you’ve been dreaming. Based around a complete “farm to table” experience, this restaurant is an experience not to be missed.

The menu is created based on what’s available; everything from steak and oysters to pizza and pasta can be found throughout the year. You can choose to dine upstairs, which is more casual, or downstairs, which is more intimate. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this one-of-a-kind Rockland gem.
