Great spot for a tasty Italian meal at a good price. Worth moving away from the Main Street for. Also do gluten free pasta dishes for those in need.

The reason Primavera’s is as popular as ever is we offer a wide range of delicious home style Italian food, from our house made fresh egg pasta, traditional cooking techniques and the freshest of produce available, to our many veal, chicken and seafood dishes, to our popular steaks, and our many entrée dishes, and don’t forget about our famous traditional pizzas, which started it all. In Italy, family and friends getting together around the dinner table eating a satisfying home cooked style meal is an important part of every day. It’s a place where family and friends can all come together, share a good conversation, funny stories and experiences, in a relaxed friendly environment. Our aim is to bring to you a warm, inviting, friendly environment for the whole family to enjoy and to share with us our passion for good food, good wine and good times.We look forward to seeing you dine at Primavera soon.
