Prepare yourself for a sweet little slice of Lisbon right in the center of Ludlow. Typical, relaxed, chilled atmosphere. I've dined in many places in Portugal and Primavera recreates the experience perfectly. The spicy shrimp is out of this world!

Primavera restaurant has authentic Portuguese food, and everything is delicious from the soups and appetizers to main courses and desserts. You won't be disappointed here. Great seafood and fish, delicious chicken, beef and pork meals as well. This place is a little bit on the small side, but the food is great and the service is too. Give it a... More

This restaurant definitely has potential, but needs a lot of work with customer service. I went for lunch with my wife during the week. I had steak with rice and fries and an egg on top, my wife had a shrimp meal. Food was good, but service was awful. We had a young girl as our server. No bread was... More

Been here twice now. My first time, the food was amazing, but service was lacking. But this time was 10/10. Rosa, our server was amazing! Down to earth, friendly, funny and super efficient!! The food here is so good. We ordered everything from the Salmon and Swordfish, to the Short Rib/Quail mixed grill and everything in between. Highly recommended!!

We are big fans of this place. One feels like they are family when they arrive and are seated. Great choice of apps and the main courses are varied and representative of Portuguese food. A personal favorite is their seafood offerings especially those served in their red sauce. So good! Dessert and wine offerings are also top shelf. This is... More

After the stress of visiting a family member at Health South we needed to relax and unwind. Primavera Café was the exact source we needed. The food is authentic Portuguese, the portions are filling, and the ingredients are fresh. Started with home made chicken soup filled with pasta, vegetables and chicken. An Appetizer plate of Portuguese cheese, black olives, sliced... More
