We have recently visited Buncrana and ate here three times in a week. Our kids just adore the pizzas and there's also a great choice of pasta, seafood and other Italian dishes. Staff are lovely and provide excellent service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Buncrana.. You won't be disappointed:-)

We went with the Trip Advisor consensus and were not disappointed. Had a chicken dish and a pizza. Excellent Italian with good wine options that is surprisingly competitive with genuine Italian you would find in any large city. Great value, like others have said, don't be put off by the exterior or location, you will enjoy a break from pub... More

An excellent Italian restaurant: the decor/atmosphere is warm and welcoming; the staff are friendly and efficient: the food is fresh and of good quality. Three of us chose pizza and all thought they were amongst the best pizzas we'd ever eaten. My husband chose lasagne and gave it full marks. Whenever I am next in Buncrana, I will definitely re-visit... More

Great spot for a tasty Italian meal at a good price. Worth moving away from the Main Street for. Also do gluten free pasta dishes for those in need.

We were in Buncrana in March. Given it was off season there weren't many options at all in terms of places to eat so we ended up eating here twice. No complaints regarding food or service. We had pizza, pasta and bruschetta. Nothing amazing but nothing bad either. All perfectly fine. The service was friendly. A couple of things were... More

The reason Primavera’s is as popular as ever is we offer a wide range of delicious home style Italian food, from our house made fresh egg pasta, traditional cooking techniques and the freshest of produce available, to our many veal, chicken and seafood dishes, to our popular steaks, and our many entrée dishes, and don’t forget about our famous traditional pizzas, which started it all. In Italy, family and friends getting together around the dinner table eating a satisfying home cooked style meal is an important part of every day. It’s a place where family and friends can all come together, share a good conversation, funny stories and experiences, in a relaxed friendly environment. Our aim is to bring to you a warm, inviting, friendly environment for the whole family to enjoy and to share with us our passion for good food, good wine and good times.We look forward to seeing you dine at Primavera soon.
