Email that i wrote concering my experience at the restaurant: Hi, We came across your establishment last night around 8:30 PM (Wednesday, September 2nd) looking for coffee and dessert. I have always heard good things about your restaurant but hadn't gotten to try it yet, so I was looking forward to it. While the dessert was very good, the server... More

Fast service and decent food but the rather dark restaurant was a bit gloomy. Service was friendly and attentive and we had a nice evening.

We have always had a great dinner at this restaurant. It is clean, well-decorated. There are white tablecloths in place. The waiters are in tuxedos and are always attempting to please. It is right in the middle of busy Orange Avenue, but is frequented by locals and visitors who know how good it is.

I ordered the risotto with seafood and was eating my meal and all of a sudden took a bite in one side of my plate that burned the entire inside of my mouth so bad. I then had to spit it all out. I couldn't eat the rest of my meal after that and now just want to put my... More

Had a mid-week dinner at Primavera. The menu is well put together and includes all the traditional dishes with additional flair. The caprese salad was great and the pasta's were well crafted. A range of pasta and sauces are available. Spicing was perfect. Waiter was prompt but not over eager. Explained menu quite well. Restaurant was quiet but casual. Wednesday... More

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
