Very pleasing restaurant with excellent service. Good wine list of both Italian and Californian wines. Wonderful sea food, white fish and octopus dishes.....Unfortunately, a little bit expensive.

Exceptional chef creates amazing food. Professional staff are attentive and proactive. Our chosen appetizer was Procuitto e Melon.

We had dinner here expecting a lot from the reviews and were not disappointed. The home-made pasta dishes were great and the veal Osso Buco was outstanding. A nicely varied menu and attentive service. Very generous portions and high quality made it a good value.

I’ve been here before and enjoyed the experience so I returned again. Service is good, food is OK. Nothing wrong with the place but having Italians in the family you know how food should taste. It isn’t bad but not what I am used to....More

This could be the best restaurant in Coronado. Excellent food and service is top rate. Everything on the menu is prepared with care. Nice Happy Hour and on Wed., the wine is half price. This place will not disappoint.

Comfortable and intimate seating. Professional five-star staff. (We loved the formality, to include being seated side by side with a "table push"). Sarted with bruschetta and red wines ( from Italy and Argentina), then moved to pasta plates of Tortellini Verdi and Linguinne alle Vongole....More

Our first comments, what a nice quiet restaurant. So hard to find these days. From the very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff to the menu and the food itself we had a wonderful experience. Not touristy and very old school.

I don't believe so - Coronado is very dog-friendly but Primavera does not provide outdoor seating from what I remember. It is a crowded area of Orange Ave.
