Very classy place. Very friendly on the phone when making reservations, which continued when we arrived as well as to the service. Food was delicious. The bread, Caesar salad, and lobster ravioli were awesome, so was the wine. Will definitely be returning when i am in the area.

The food presentation was lovely. My husband ordered the swordfish special and I ordered the veal. Both plates looked lovely however his fish was chewy ...maybe not fresh . The manager asked if all was OK. When my husband told him about the fish it was immediately replaced by a delicious veal picante. Coffee was excellent and the gelato very... More

Great spot for happy hour as the drinks are $3 off, all drinks, beer, wine. Nice selection of hors d'oeuvres including some enormous prawns in a delicious cream sauce, an antipasto platter on Tuesdays, tasty steamed clams and different flatbreads. Haven't eaten an actual meal here as I like sitting out at one of just 3-4 tables on the street... More

Stopped in for "Martini Monday" and Chris made a great drink for us. The atmosphere is quite and relaxing. This is where the locals go. Food was great and the prices were reasonable. Would go back again!

My boyfriend and I were visiting Coronado on a last minute/end of summer vacation. We made spur of the moment plans to see a movie one evening, and walked down Orange Ave to the theatre. We were going to have popcorn for dinner, but I decided that a salad would be a healthier option. We passed by Primavera, where two... More

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
