We had a funghi ripieni (stuffed mushrooms) for an appetizer, a very good chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and olives and a fabulous veal chop ($46 and worth it). We purchased wine nearly and paid a corkage fee but noted they have a nice wine list..Service was perfect. Tables are nicely spaced and background music allows conversation. We look forward returning.

Primavera Ristorante never disappoints. The service is first-class with tuxedoed waiters and fresh Italian dishes. Their veal is excellent, especially the veal chop. Best Italian restaurant in the San Diego area, and has a local feeling being in downtown Coronado. Doesnt' have the views of other Coronado restaurants. The focus is on qualify food, excellent service, and an Old World... More

Primavera was delicious! We had a party of 12 for Valentine's night. The menu was was nice and the presentation was great. Our wait staff just couldn't be nicer. We had an awesome meal, as well as had fun.

Over cooked pasta and undercooked filet - so hard to flag waitstaff down. Disappointing as it looked like a local place that would be great.

Very classy place. Very friendly on the phone when making reservations, which continued when we arrived as well as to the service. Food was delicious. The bread, Caesar salad, and lobster ravioli were awesome, so was the wine. Will definitely be returning when i am in the area.

The food presentation was lovely. My husband ordered the swordfish special and I ordered the veal. Both plates looked lovely however his fish was chewy ...maybe not fresh . The manager asked if all was OK. When my husband told him about the fish it was immediately replaced by a delicious veal picante. Coffee was excellent and the gelato very... More

Great spot for happy hour as the drinks are $3 off, all drinks, beer, wine. Nice selection of hors d'oeuvres including some enormous prawns in a delicious cream sauce, an antipasto platter on Tuesdays, tasty steamed clams and different flatbreads. Haven't eaten an actual meal here as I like sitting out at one of just 3-4 tables on the street... More

Stopped in for "Martini Monday" and Chris made a great drink for us. The atmosphere is quite and relaxing. This is where the locals go. Food was great and the prices were reasonable. Would go back again!
