The food is always better than just average, The staff are the best in any restaurant in Essex County. Try the very popular Rock shrimp for a starter and you can share with three other people it's that big.Sea Bass ,Flounder and shrimp. great steak dishes, along with pasta and chicken make the main course a hard but tasty choice....

My wife & I decided to stop in in for dinner on a Saturday night around 6 PM. We did not have reservations, but we were seated immediately.

I visited this Primavera restaurant based on strong reviews with my wife and my dad this past Saturday night. To begin with, if you wish not to Valet park, parking is a real hassle--expect a long walk after you self-park. Overall, food was strictly average. Chicken Parm was very dry and did not come with the pasta listed on menu.... More

As I am about to move overseas, I wanted to give a long overdue shout out to my go to place in West Orange, my home town for the last 20 years. This is excellent Italian even by New Jersey standards. They are extremely popular and have a regular clientele as well as :"destination foodies" who come from other parts... More

Food is not consistent and lacks atmosphere. Loved this place when it was in a smaller and more welcoming location.

A group of coworkers and I had lunch at the Primavera restaurant in West Orange, NJ. The service was fantastic and the food was extremely fresh. I had a grilled chicken Cobb salad.

For those who like to sit at the bar and begin the evening with a cocktail, the restaurant has a large, quiet lounge area. The restaurant is well designed and very clean. Their waiters are very professional, well-trained, very attentive. The menu is excellent as is the presentation and the quality of the food. Pricey, but well worth it.

Authentic Italian food. We had the House Salad (excellent, includes hearts of palm), Gnocchi Bolognese (excellent), and Chicken Francese (Very Good). Highly recommended.
