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.

We had dinner here on a Friday evening and was pleasantly surprised. Menu provided many options at reasonable prices, $20-$30. Portions were large and well presented. The wine list was not extensive but very reasonably priced (2x retail) with several nice bottles. I would go there for a special meal with friends or family. I thought it a great value.

I have gone since they were in their old location a decade bit so ago. The food is the best I have had in Western Essex County. Setting is nice. Service is professional. Portions are generous. Highly recommended.

There was a good selection on the menu. We were especially happy with the many choices of fish. The Dover sole was excellent. They were busy and the service was slow and inattentive. We only saw the waiter when they took our drink order and then food order.
