Very good restaurant with excellent Italian cuisine. They also will make almost any dish whether on the menu or not. Service was very slow which is why I didn't give it five stars although restaurant was busy. Best Italian food on Coronado.

We always done here when in town. Great food, nice wine list and superb service. We always ask for Omar to serve us as he is an excellent waiter. The grilled chicken along with the veal chop and all pasta dishes are superb. Good desserts as well. Recently redecorated and not overly noisy which is a big plus!

I spent the afternoon exploring Coronado and decided to have an early dinner before returning to the City of San Diego. Primavera looked interesting so I dropped in without a reservation. I was treated like a lifelong customer. I ordered the grilled octopus and the Tagliatelle al Frutti di Mare. Both were excellent as was the service. In addition, they... More

We enjoyed the spaghetti carbonara and pappardelle . The wine corking fee is $20 per bottle so keep that in mind. Romantic place to go.

My husband and I dined here for dinner as part of a long weekend in Coronado, celebrating our first wedding anniversary. The restaurant has great atmosphere - it is special and feels upscale without being pretentious. The service was attentive and gracious. The food was fantastic, especially the entrees (the scampi classico was delicious). They also had a well-priced wine... More

I feel like maybe we had an off night. Compared to other restaurants and for the money, I was disappointed. After I read all of the great reviews, maybe our expectations were too high? My caprese salad had been obviously sitting in a fridge for quite some time. The tomatoes were freezing and the balsamic drizzle was hard. The appetizers... More

We had a business dinner here one night and were seating in a wonderful private upstairs area that felt like someone's home. It was quiet and cozy. Service was friendly, although did seem slow at times (perhaps because we were physically apart from the rest of the patrons). The food was the real highlight here. The table got antipasta which...
