Primavera Ristorante- Coronado Ratings and Reviews

This was my third time dining at this restaurant. Took my mom and my two sons, after I raved about it. This time, I was disappointed. We sat too long prior to giving our drink order. Another table was seated after us, got bread in their table.I had to ask. We ordered the octopus appetizer, it was sold out.
The lobster ravioli was colorful, but bland.
The server seemed to have too many tables to give the service that needs to be given at an establishment such as this one.
Sitting at the bar, having your meal, is a much better experience at Primavera.

We were on vacation with a group of 8 and we had dinner at Primavera. Everyone in our group loved their meal. It was fresh, hot and delicious!! I would definitely recommend this lovely little restaurant!! The staff was friendly and knew the menu. The next visit to San Diego/Coronado we will dine here again!
We were recommended Primavera by a friend that has a vacation home on the island. We were doing a birthday getaway weekend for my husband (we are from Arizona) and met up with some CA friends. This was a lovely place for dinner. The food and service were nice. The décor is a bit on the "mature" end of the spectrum but it was a great experience.

Every time we go to Coranado we come here for dinner and it is great. This time was no different. It was recommended by the Hotel Del Beach Village concierge years ago and it is still great. We always make it the first night's dinner because we crave it. Food is excellent and service is exceptional.

The food at this restaurant is truly wonderful, every bit, every course. We were delighted with it all. And the service is amazing. We felt very special and enjoyed our evening entirely. The front of the restaurant on Orange Avenue provides no hint to the fabulous restaurant hidden inside. It's a true gem, and we'll be returning soon and often.
Waiter needs to know about beer selection. He had to bring us the bottle to show us the type. After ordering a special appetizer, we learned that there was another special, to late to change . They should know their selection by 6:30. Ask for a romantic booth or you will sit a table.

As locals, we generally love Prima Vera. However, while the food was good, the service was well below average . Our server, "A", was non-existent after placing our order. While I don't expect each waitperson to know we are local, "A" treated us like a one time transient to the restaurant . So disappointing. If that is the best the waitstaff can provide then I say chose another restaurant. Vigilucci's and Island Pasta appreciate each of their customers, and both provide tasty meals. Perhaps going back to "tuxedos" will remind the wait staff that "service" is their first obligation.
What a delight to be able to walk to this cozy restaurant that always feels lovely, warm, welcoming. We enjoyed succulent seafood lightly sauced, perfect pasta, the lightest, most tantalizing tiramisu anywhere. Our wonderful waiter was professional shy of fussy, friendly with a perfect dash of humor.
Excellent Italian/European Dining
Went here because the prices were a bit better than main competitor down the street on Orange. GREAT choice. Lamb chops were delicious. Wife had scampi. Wait staff were gracious. Get the spumoni gelato for dessert; you will not be disappointed.
One of the best restaurants in Coronado
We have use this restaurant for business dinners several time over the years and it never fails to impress. The service, food, wine, and the relaxed ambience make it one of the best restaurants in Coronado. We arrived at 6;#0pm on a Wednesday evening and left at 10:00pm and the service remained second to none throughout the evening. We felt comfortable throughout the evening. Of course, we will be back many times!
Would come back here at the drop of a hat. Dined here many times and always great. Service impeccable, chef does amazing specials. This is a place that you can take your most important client or special night out with your wife. Do not hesitate to book a table here, you will not be disappointed.

Came for our anniversary was an early reservation 5:15. Restaurant fairly empty. Bread we received cold inside/ semi frozen, took 15min to get replaced bread came about same time as dinner. I had asked for the bread at same time as caprese. No apologies for this also we were never asked if we wanted a second drink/ cocktail. There was another couple to the right of us and their waiter checked in with them every few minutes. We were completely ignored. Lobster Ravioli portion very skimpy 4 very small ravioli lobster ground up impossible to discern in ravioli. We live in downtown SD. This use to be a favorite restaurant ( why we so chose for 33 anniversary) it will be long time before we return or recommend.BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!

All would have been perfect, a ten, except that the very tasty white sea bass was a litle overdone, not moist. Also the same for the Chop,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but still good, but could have been better. would have sent back but were with out of towners, whose food was being enjoyed.
Italien food the way it should be prepared
We've been visiting Primavera for a pre-theatre dinner before attending the Lamb's theatre down the street. I've been disappointed at many other Italian restaurants which, I feel, over season the food or bury it under heavy sauces. Not so Primavera. I've grown quite fond of the Ravioli Aragosta with vodka cream sauce. I usually avoid risotto because of the heavy use of salt, but not here. At Primavera I can taste the ingredients.
If you get a chance, ask for Jerry as your waiter. We tried Primavera because he joined their staff. A true professional, he's a wonderful blend of formality and personality. He'll take excellent care of you.

Primavera Ristorante Coronado is an extraordinary Italian restaurant. The food is exquisite and the service is perfect. We had a table of 6 for a business dinner and nothing could have been improved on. It would have been an excellent place for a romantic dinner as well. The next night we had another business dinner at another Italian restaurant in Coronado which was highly recommended and which was even more expensive---we preferred Primavera. I would go again in a heartbeat.
Food and service was excellent! Arturo the best!
Great meal and our waiter, Arturo, the best! So conscious and personable. Took great care of us all the way to curb. Oh yeah food was to die for, but if you were looking at this place, you already knew that! Food great, staff over the top, they know how to make a meal a dining experience. Thanks, L. Latasa
