Yummy food

Very tasty food and a nice atmosphere. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, but seemed to forget about us after a while. A nice girl took over delivering our food and eventually taking a desert order. Overall it was a good experience and we will return.

This was our first experience at Primavera. As others have said it is a very traditional restaurant with good food, attentive service and reasonable prices.

The restaurant had a great look and ambiance. We felt underdressed, but they were gracious in making us feel welcome. There were only two tables with customers on this Sunday early evening. My wife had wallu fish (Hawaiian we were told) and I had the breaded chicken. The bread was great! Our meals took about 15 minutes to get to... More

After listening to 3 couples we know express their heartfelt love for Primavera, we just had to try it. We were very impressed. Outstanding food and great knowledgeable staff. Our server recommended the Osso Buco for my husband and it was a hit, he loved every bite. My Pappardelle with mushroom sauce and Filet Mignon, was fabulous. I can highly... More

The restaurant has a very traditional feel. The waiters are very attentive and the food is solid. It is not innovative but it is tasty. I had the cioppino and it was delicious. My husband had the veal marsalla and he enjoyed it very much.

We were fortunate enough to get reservations here for New Years Eve. We were promptly seated and greeted by our server. He was attentive all evening and offered great suggestions for wine and all courses. Everything was delicious. We started with a traditional ceasar salad followed by shrimp scampi and a mediterranean pasta. The kitchen was very accommodating with a... More

Great choices on the menu but we were hoping to have a pasta bolognese- which was not on the menu. When I asked whether they had a bolognese, they were happy to provide! Best bolognese ever!! Service was fantastic! Atmosphere was perfect whether you're out for date night or a large party. Wish we lived in Coronado!

We've eaten here several times before and ai have to say that we were disappointed with our recent visit. The lamb chops are still delicious but in general the food was not as good as I remembered it - and our waiter was not good. In the past the service even for a large party was top-notch. We hadn't been... More
