Summary

Primo Piatto is the main quick service dining option at the Riviera Resort. Its menu features foods familiar to all Americans, with a dash of flavors found in cafes found along the French and Italian riviera. The food quality is very good for a quick-service restaurant, as long as the kitchen isn't rushed.

Setting and Atmosphere

A clean, bright, and open space on the ground floor, facing the bocce court and quiet pool at the center of the Riviera Resort.

House Specialties

Breakfast

Our favorite breakfast items are the Croque Madame and the Primo Piatto Breakfast. The Croque Madame is a grilled ham and Swiss cheese on a hearty sandwich loaf, topped with more Swiss cheese and a fried egg. Eaten together, it's ham, eggs, cheese, and bread - everything there is to love at breakfast, except perhaps hash browns. Comes with a protein selection, which includes bacon, sausage, and plant-based sausage.

The Primo Piatto Breakfast starts with fluffy scrambled eggs served over polenta made with mascarpone cheese. Here, the polenta adds texture to the eggs, and the mascarpone offers a hint of sweetness. The flavors might not be what we normally eat for breakfast, but after a couple of bites you'll ask yourself why we don't. Comes with a brioche roll, bacon, and Italian sausage. The vegan version of the Primo Piatto is the Scramble "Egg" Bowl, with plant-based eggs, roasted vegetables, and plant-based sausage. These are served in an excellent, light-tasting olive oil pesto.

Lunch

If you're looking for something light, try the Tuna Niçoise Salad - seared tuna on greens, with potatoes, egg, and a vinaigrette dressing. The burgers are also good.

Dinner

The food quality at dinner depends a lot on how busy the restaurant is. If it's not too crowded, the dinner specialties include a Hangar Steak with mascarpone-flavored mashed potatoes, and an excellent sauce of red wine and balsamic; and a fried Chicken Cutlet with saffron risotto, with olive oil, arugula, and Parmesan cheese.

The kitchen is learning how to deal with the dinner rush. During our visits to the just-opened restaurant, dinner items tended to arrive slightly overdone if the restaurant was busy. In this case, our advice is to stick with the flatbread pizzas and salads.
