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!

What a great little Italian place on Coronado. They don't need my review because the place was packed on a mid week night so make reservations. The made up a great antipasto plate for us that was not on the menu that was fabulous!

This was by far one of the best dining experiences that my wife and I have ever had in the San Diego area. The restaurant is located directly off the main drag in Coronado. Parking is at a premium, but findable - - especially if you scout around on the nearby, and walkable side streets. The establishment itself is an... More

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.
