Exceptional chef creates amazing food. Professional staff are attentive and proactive. Our chosen appetizer was Procuitto e Melon. I had never had Procuitto with cantaloupe shaved in long strips, so delicious rolled together. My husband had the Combined Chicken and Eggplant parm. His two favorites combined. So original! I had my favorite Cioppino and it was perfect. The Limoncello Mouse melted in my mouth. So wonderful! My husbands Chocolate Lava cake was delicious as well. We both agreed that we couldn’t have picked a better place for our 35th wedding anniversary.

I had dinner at this restaurant and it was supposed to be very good Italian cuisine. Well, it was not good, service not good and staff not too friendly. Well, when I evaluate a restaurant, if I value it as not good, my evaluation should stop there. And here, it was the case. Do not waste your time and money.

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.

This is a solid choice. The food is top notch and the martinis are the best in all the San Diego area.

The service is a bit slow and the ambiance is a bit on the boring side. I would recommend it for an early dinner because the place is almost empty by 10:00 or 10:30 pm

We have eaten at Primavera several times for their wonderful Happy Hour. The portion size for Happy Hour is quite ample, and the chef has not skimped on flavor or quality. The wine list includes some very nice regional and international wines. Our experience with the staff has been very good. They seem to have landed on a delightful balance of being professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The Atmosphere is reminiscent of Italy with a warm, traditional decor but with contemporary touches to keep it from feeling too dark. The large bar is welcoming and beautiful as you enter the restaurant. We plan to eat at Primavera for dinner when we return to Coronado.
