“Primavista & especially our server made my birthday a wonderful experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

My husband and I were approached by the server within a few minutes of sitting down, which was great. Our server was patient and polite to take our picture for my birthday in two different spot, and she suggested the two spots. The food was excellent and tasted authentic. Our server was attentive and the manager checked on us to make sure everything was fine. At the end, our server surprised me with a birthday dessert with a candle, which was a nice surprise. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience and we plan to return.

“Breathtaking views of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Recently ate here with a co-worker for her retirement dinner. The views are spectacular and the food is great!
This is also a great place for a romantic dinner for two.

“great view/dated food and atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The view is amazing. The fish we had was overwhelmed by the butter sauce. We received the wrong salads. Trying to figure out if they were the wrong salads, my partner sifted the greens with his used fork. The waitress came by and saw they were the wrong salads and took them. Unfortunately, we saw her set them down in front of customers at another table, including the one my partner had moved his dirty fork through. Uuuhhh.....yuck.

“BEST VIEW IN THE CITY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Primavista really does have the best view of the city. The food is excellent if a bit pricey. The service is great. It smells a bit musty in my opinion.

“Just another great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

We visited Prima Vista last Saturday night and although it was a challenge to get there with the current road construction, the meal and service were outstanding. The view at Prima Vista of the Cincinnati skyline is always beautiful and we did snag a corner table but it really is about the food and from the mussels appetizer, reasonably priced wine selections and homemade Italian dishes it is a hidden gem.
