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

Charming wonderful restaurant. The wait staff was friendly, helpful and professional. The appetizers was as good as anything I've eaten in Tuscany. Simple and flavorful. Had the special fish entre. Fabulous!

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.

Lovely restaurant! Great service, outstanding food. Three of us had the Chef's special that night, sea bass. Delicious and very generous portion! Our other diner had stuffed cannelloni with spinach and ricotta and she said it was outstanding. Desserts looked great but we were too full after appetizers and salad and the main course. I'll return when I'm back in... More

I live in Colorado but make a point of dining at Primavera whenever I get to San Diego. I've been here both with friends and family, and also for business dinners. The servers are friendly, warm, attentive and helpful, and they'll give great advice about the menu. The food is always amazing - I tend to go with the scallops,... More

After a lifetime of dining in Coronado, it was wonderful to discover this little gem. Overstuffed banquettes, well dressed maitre d's and waiters, low lighting. Proper service and excellent food were all a welcome surprise. There are not enough better dining outlets in Coronado - I highly recommend it. Although the fried calamari it was a little tough and under-salted... More

Wonderful meal. The braised short rib ravioli di manza was delicious, as was my wife's pappardelle funghi. Service was perfectly timed so we didn't feel rushed while also attentive. Prices are reasonable without a "Coronado surcharge." The seating area is very nice and can accommodate an intimate dinner for two or a larger party. Overall, it was an excellent experience.
