We had an excellent dinner of fish in this well appointed and comfortable restaurant. The service was excellent. Probably the best fine dining meal we had on our visit to San Diego. I can highly recommend this establishment when searching for a splurge dinner. Prices were slightly high but well worth it!

Found Primavera on Trip Advisor and am so glad we did. Everything about this restaurant is top notch, from waiters in tuxedos to ideal ambiance, banquettes were a welcome comfort after a long day in San Diego. Food was delicious. Started with a Caprese salad with prosciutto, followed by an Australian sea bass special and veal piccata. Food was fresh,... More

I would easily place Primavera in the list of top 5 redtaurants in San Diego and easily on top of the Italian Restaurant list! Anything you order os simply served to perfection by a wait staff that is second to none. A must have is their thinly sliced eggplant appetizer, it's heavenly and the perfect start to a meal. Their... More

While vacationing in Coronado we decided we were hungry on our way back to the hotel. We had several choices but decided we liked the atmosphere at Primavera Ristonante. We were greeted by the staff and decided to take a seat at the bar, We shared three outstanding appetizers. Bruschetta, Carpaccio and Scampi alla Griglia. The Scampi was humongous. The... More

The place is intimate with the tables perhaps being a touch too close together. The food was outstanding.... great seafood and LARGE portions. The calamari was tender not chewy and the mussels were outstanding - HUGE. The man of the house will not go hungry here. The service was very friendly and attentive - but not overbearing. When I am... More

Read reviews and agree; terrific Italian food. Special treat was the Wednesday half price for bottle of wine. We had an excellent white from California. The food was excellent. Recommend the Mediterraneo, lobster ravioli. Calamari not the best but good. Must try the tiramisu...about the best I've had.
