We went here for a a special occasion, my husband and I. Straightaway we were struck by the professionalism of staff. We had an a superbly positioned table. Service was second to none. Waiters knew their dishes extremely well. It's a nice touch that they're wearing tuxedos too. We both ordered chicken dishes which were lovely, not exceptional but nice.... More

Service staff was friendly and efficient. The wine list was pretty good and the menu had a nice selection as well. I went here on a business dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the salmon and it was prepared nicely with good flavor and not overcooked, the pasta was cooked just right as well. Overall very good experience... More

This restaurant is a little dated inside but the food was nice and the service was excellent. They had gluten free pasta which was a bonus as i was struggling a little in Coronado.

This Italian restaurant is excellent! We have celebrated our anniversary there twice and enjoyed it very much. If you like wine, bottles of wine are discounted on Wednesday nights. Very nice ambiance and a switch from the usual casual beach restaurant.

Honestly, I find this one of the more challenging reviews I've written for a restaurant. We decided to return to Primavera on our 25th anniversary trip since this was of the first Coronado dinners I shared with my wife as a young military officer. The ambiance was clearly dated, almost movie set cheesy, but somehow seemed to work. The wait... More

This is a quiet upscale restaurant for seasoned travelers not looking for fast food. The service was impeccable and you are not rushed. The food was prepared with distinction and the waiters are professionally dressed. It was a nice choice for our last night in Coronado.

We stopped in before the play and were very happy with the attention and quality of the apps we shared. We shared the happy hour Fritti, crostini florentine and a flourless chocolate desert. Had a glass of G Justin each and a decaf cappuccino, total bill was 60.xx with the tax

My husband and I just ate dinner here after seeing the reviews. The food is truly authentic Italian cuisine and the service was outstanding! I had the best spaghetti Carbonara I ever had. The next we are in Coronado we will definitely be back!
