I feel as if many people believe that this restaurant is a special occasion place. I disagree. The food and service was not bad. Everything was just average. Nothing tasted or made you feel special.

We almost gave up finding a good place to eat as many of the restaurants on Orange verge on being fast food. But Primavera was a welcome oasis. The lobster ravioli was superb and the service great

Arrived during happy hour to enjoy wine and apps prior to dinner. Seated in a noisy booth right next to the bar. Was told we weren't eligible for happy hour prices unless we left our table and ordered and consumed at the bar. Seemed like a miss on the service front. Nonetheless, we were celebrating and ordered full price wine... More

Enjoyed a Friday happy hour listening to the locals at the bar discuss island things. The bar crowd was friendly, bar was well stocked including several types of Grappa (if one likes the taste of jet fuel) and the bartender was very attentive. Had an excellent grilled octopus appetizer followed by spaghetti carbonara. Desserts looked great but I chose the... More

We were looking for dinner at a good Italian restaurant to end our visit to Coronado Island. Primavera was recommended by the hotel concierge and it met all our expectations. Food was delicious and well presented. Wait staff were friendly and attentive. Wine was great and reasonably priced by the glass. I had osso buco which was expensive but tender... More

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

If you are looking for good Italian food in Coronado this is the best one. Service is good. Wine list is good. Known for veal shank which is great.
