Primavera Ristorante- Coronado Ratings and Reviews
After being in Italy we just can't eat any pasta that is not made fresh. Primavera Ristorante did not disappoint! The Spaghetti Carbonara was devine. We chose the grilled artichoke heart appetizer and it was a perfect start to a perfect meal. The light lemon sauce paired so nicely with the smokey choke. Service was spot on, with each course perfectly timed out of the kitchen. Without a doubt the best pasta in Coronado.
A very nice Coronado find in what can sometimes seem a sea of grossly overpriced and at best mediocre to lousy food ...the downsides to an overly popular place where some vendors don't even need try to make money through excellence.
The service here was impeccable, the food and wine excellent and priced fairly (for SoCal) and the ambience of the restaurant pleasant, allowing quiet conversation and enjoyment of ones companion(s). The reservation was taken seriously ... unlike other places on the island when a reservation time is merely something to be abused by the vendor. If you're looking for a nice dinner, linen and time spent not in a raucous atmosphere ... dine here.
We have lived in Coronado for 8 years and have always intended to go to Primavera. Finally went with some Coronado natives who had been there about 18 years previously.
It as all fairly good---not WOW! Fantastic. We ordered a few salads and 4 entrees. It took easily over 30 minutes between salad and entree, and the restaurant was not full. Don't know if we will go again. Their pricing is certainly geared to take advantage of the tourism. I have no problem dropping money for a fantastic meal---this just wasn't it.
We (my 2 sisters and my niece) had a really good dinner. We loved the artichokes and 4 cheese risotto which we shared as starters. My niece had the chicken which was a large portion and excellent. Once sister had the carbonara which was also excellent. My sister and i had the wild king salmon with creamy leek sauce & vegetables. The salmon & vegetables were also excellent. the creamy leek sauce was too salty. When asked how everything was we said that everything was really good but that the leek sauce was over-salted in our opinion. We said we did not want to return our meal to the kitchen but that we asked the chef be told so he/she had a chance to correct it for future diners that night. We basically ate the salmon without the sauce. For some reason our waiter (and the maitre d or whomever was overseeing the dining room) seemed to have a problem that we gave feedback but didn't let them return our dishes to the kitchen. At least that was the impression they gave us.
We would all go back again. I was just a bit disappointed by the attitude of the staff when we tried to give constructive feedback.
My wife and I were in Coronado for the week celebrating our 25th anniversary. This was our final night so thought we'd try it. Bottom line; food very good; homemade noodles, etc. It was packed which was good for them but while waiting on a group above us (two levels), the waiter spilled food on my head and down the side of the divider. He apologized but was in to big of a hurry to say much and left. Our waiter never acknowledge it even though we mentioned it. Anyway, good food, but very pricey for the experience so probably would check it off our list.
We love this restaurant and have gone several times in the past. The veal is out of this world!
This time the service was poor. We waited and waited for water, bread, etc. a long wait for our meals. No one paid much attention or asked if we needed anything. Quite a departure from our past experiences there. We will go back, as the food is always good.
It is what it is, a very good Italian place on Coronado. The seating area is not large- typical on Coronado- and in fact we'd hardly been seated when the waiter reminded us of the high price of real estate on Coronado- seemed to be an indicator that he'd like us to order, eat and move on so they could pay the rent!
Apart from that he was quite good. Appetizers were excellent (roasted octopus) to standard (calamari), the Beet salad was innovative and amongst the best I've had recently- a real highlight we both agreed. Main dishes were very good (Lobster ravioli) to outstanding (Fish special- halibut)- accompanied by a super tuscan by the glass which was very nice. Desserts were also excellent- spumoni very good, lemon mousse excellent.
The food was definitely top notch overall, the atmosphere, sort of OK. Cost- excellent for such good food
Although I have lived in Coronado for years , this was my first trip to Primavera. The food was perfect! My corvina fillet was sublime! Wait staff excellent. Our table for two was right on top of the waiters station!....annoying! We will go back but request a different table.
