We dine here every time we visit San Diego. The restaurant atmosphere is classy. Great for a romantic dinner or for a lovely evening among friends. The bartender makes a great drink. The staff is professional, very polished and always great. The food is the best Italian in San Diego. Even our friends who live in San Diego and raved... More

Primavera is an elegant, wonderful Italian restaurant on Orange Avenue on Coronado. The food is terrific, the service outstanding, and the ambiance is old world. The restaurant has an extensive menu in addition to nightly specials. It is my favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego.

Had not eaten there in a few years and were looking forward to a nice meal. Wait staff efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable. Wife's meal was menu item tortelloni which she said were not as good as the ones she used to serve as a first class meal on an airline. ouch! I had a special recommended by the chef with... More

Our concierge suggested Primavera in downtown Coronado…just a dozen blocks away from our hotel. Lucky we found street parking a half a block from the restaurant. The dining room has a pleasant subdued atmosphere, and the menu offers a good selection of dishes. My lamb osso bucco came with a generous portion of tender cooked meat; although, my wife's veal...

This was a good find for a romantic weekend evening in Coronado. It is a short walk from the Hotel del, where we stayed. The food was good, and the portions were large, but nothing that really stuck in my mind as memorable. The service was a bit slack at times; they were nice, but it seemed like they forgot... More

Glad we listened to yelp and trip advisor reviews and ate here 3 times in 6 nights. Lobster bisque, beef carpacio, veal, swordfish....every bite delicious. Great wine choices. Dimly lit, higher end restaurant. The island was SO croweded last week in December - walked out of hotel del because of the noise and wait - same with a few of... More

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at Primavera this evening. The service, atmosphere, and especially our food was top notch, and most enjoyable. My daughter had a Chicken Caesar salad, and I enjoyed the nights special, Sea Bass, with grilled veggies. Topped off with coffee and to die for cheesecake, Primavera hit all the right spots!

Primavera Ristorante has been a favorite in Coronado for many years and for good reason. The small, lovely space bustles, but noise is not an issue here. The menu offers a wide range of northern Italian classics, and there are daily specials. Service is very professional and pleasant, and the prices not unreasonable for the total dining experience. Primavera is... More

Primavera has always been a family favorite as my wife and I would spend many a Saturday night parked at the bar having dinner when we were dating 20 years ago. And now 20 years later, it is still the same. The service is great, the food is good….though can get a bit pricey (our fish specials were around $38... More

Made reservation through Open Table for Saturday night several days before, but on arrival were given a tiny table in the corner, no other table available so they said. We had play tickets so too late to go elsewhere. Service was slow getting drinks and menus. Food was good but would barely fit on the table. When we left we... More
