Every meal is delicious! The dessert was my favorite part. The three flavored gelato and the brownie a la mode was so yummy!! Highly recommend it!

Excellent service, still fantastic view of downtown Cincinnati, specially at night but choice of vegetarian dishes very limited that will make it difficult to keep going back. The surrounding area - Incline District - much improved with addition of Warsaw theatre and monitored parking.

Our reservations were for 6pm, but we arrived at 5:30 and had no problems. This worked out great because we got... More

Wow is all I can say. Primavista food is out of this world. I eat the white fish with crap and lobster in butter cream sauce. Food was delicious!!! View is amazing!! The view of Cincinnati and the Ohio river is out of sight. Customer service was great. Will go back again and again.

We came across this in the list of top romantic restaurants in Cincinnati, very close to Sotto. With a date long due, I went for this as it had an available reservation convenient to our time.
