  • "San Ramon isn't known for its restaurants, but Primavera Ristorante should be getting more attention. Great service and darn good italian food. Try the carbonara - so delicious! And the veal piccata was very good too. We will definitely go back."

  • "I found this restaurant on OpenTable and was not disappointed. I had a delicious scallop and prawn salad on spinach, and my colleague's pesto looked really good, too!"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "We have been to Pasta Primavera a few times. Don't know what happened...perhaps because of Mother's Day it was overwhelming for the restaurant? The food was just mediocre (and the food used to be very good) and the service was spotty at best. We did not receive one item that we ordered as an appetizer, just as well because the bill was high. We will look for other venues for special occasions."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The fact that we went to dinner here 4 weekends in a row should say something. We live in the area and just wanted to try something new. The reviews on OT were great so we decided to give it a try. Everything we have had has been fantastic, Chicken Piccata, Shrimp and Lobster Risotto, Caprese salad w/ Avocado just to name a few. Great menu, lots of choices...wine list is good, even a nice selection from Italy. The staff is also very good. We are very happy that we decided to try something new!"

  • "The pasta dish with the homemade meat sauce was excellent - Caesar Salad well done, but most importantly service was outstanding, conducted by Sean - knowledgeable regarding menu items and overall outstanding on every score. Job well done. "

  • "Food, service, consideration and value. This is a great place for an evening meal and/or special occasion. Primavera truly embodies a restaurant that makes their customers feel that they are appreciated. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We have been going here for 20 years it seems. Give or take a few.. Salads were included, but not anymore, dinner for four with 3 glasses of wine and ice tea, was over $100.00, not longer just a place to get a bite to eat in a strip mall"

  • "My clients asked for no Onions on their food and he FAILED"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Service was slow, but the food was good! When there is a large group, additional staff should be added. Love the new backroom!"

  • "Three of us went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The "birthday girl" specifically wanted the Seafood Ravioli. It was absolutely delicious. Service, food and ambience were fantastic. Our server was very personable and attentive. We will be back!"

  • "I went to Primavera because a friend was in town and Gianni's wasn't open on Monday. When I got there, I realized it was really called "Pasta Primavera". I had the Salmon Fresca, which was supposed to be a salad, but there were no greens. The salmon was good, but of the accompaniments - canned artichoke hearts (ugh!), tomatoes, fennel, avocado - I only ate the tomatoes and fennel and a bit of the avocado. There was a lot going on on this plate but not what I wanted. My friend had the shrimp salad which she said was fine. I noticed something they called "jambalaya" on the menu - creamy seafood over fettuccine! Jambalaya is a rice dish - chef should look up the recipe. Our server was nice and competent. I will not be going back."

  • "We went on a Saturday night. Newly remodeled, great atmosphere. My meal was ok. I had the Firenze pasta but I felt that it lacked taste and was very salty (bacon and other dried meats). My husband and son loved their meals! Great wait staff and wonderful atmosphere. Will go back!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Wow! I planned this for a friends birthday and she requested to go here, so myself and 4 other friends went last friday night. I hadn't been here for quite awhile and it is just as wonderful if not better then my previous experiences. Our waiter was very engaging and fantastic, the atmosphere is lively but not to loud. The food was outstanding and is priced comparable. The whole evening was super and will definitely be back! Thank you for a great experience!"

  • "Usually a mad house at restaurants, our Valentine's dinner at Primavera was surprisingly enjoyable! It was busy and loud, but the food was delicious, service excellent, and we could actually have a nice conversation while we ate. Well done!"

  • "Everything about my dining experience was wonderful at pasta primavera, I would definielty reccomend this restuarant to all and I will be returning soon."

  • "Food was cold but did taste good Service sub par not very attentive, tried to give us neighboring tables entree and ours to the table beside us. Nice touch was rose to the lady when check brought to table"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "First time diners at Primavera...and we loved it! Our waitress was wonderful...really knew the menu and made great recommendations. Loved the calamari appetizer...the calamari was so tender and the presentation was very unique. The bread and the dipping sauce were absolutely delicious and worth going just to have that! Our only knock on the restaurant is that we felt it was a little on the expensive side, but we had a great overall experience and will definately return!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Had a business lunch this week and experienced great service with prompt attention for a group of six. The Salmon Fresca was delicious! Three of us ordered it and all were impressed. Pretty loud for business conversation."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "I love coming to this restaurant. I try to make it at least once a week for my Fresca Salad. They make it just the way I like it with blackened salmon, instead of the regular salmon. All the salads are fresh and tasty. I've also tried some of the seafood pasta dishes, the Monte Carlo is really spectacular. The prices are a bit high for a daily lunch spot, but for the service, freshness and taste, I try to get here as often as possible."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "I had a hard time deciding which salad to order for my entrée as many of them would be my first choice. Someone ordered tea and they brought out a wooden box of at least 12 different kinds. You also have a choice of different pasta grains for your entrée. The bread was warm and the dipping oil was tasty. Yes, I would go back again!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We ate here New Years Eve. Very crowded but yet the wait staff didn't make us feel rushed or as if they were too busy to take care of us. There were a few glitches due to the amount of people but overall it was a nice experience. The food is always very good and dependable, which is what I like most about this place. The noise level is always quite loud but if you are familiar with this restaurant that is to be expected."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Great menu with lots of choices. Wine List reasonable. Corkage fee very reasonable. Service very good using the team method. Used Open Table to reserve for New Years Eve dinner and walked in the door and was immediately seated."

  • "Had a wonderful dinner on New Years Eve. It has been awhile since we went here but we will be going back soon. The food and the staff were excellent."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have enjoyed the food at Pasta Primavera for years, but it was the fantastic square table for eight in the spacious dining room combined with excellent service that made our pre-Christmas celebration special. The butternut squash ravioli and the gorgonzola chicken pasta are the favorites. Also good wine choices at reasonable prices."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "Pasta Primavera is our go-to restaurant for the team to welcome new hires. Great service, good food and good atmosphere. I recommend it highly!"

  • "The host gave us our table of choice and our waiter was amazing. The food was delicious, served hot and came quickly. It was a very busy Friday PM as well."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "The food was good, as usual, but the service was spotty and in the middle of lunch it was very loud. Having asked for the side room so that my book club could discuss the books, we were placed in the bar area. I guess that was better than the main dining room, but we had difficulty hearing each other."
    Dined on 11/13/2013
  • "Had a business lunch / interview. Food was good. Service was excellent. Space and time they gave us was priceless."

  • "Chef made my favorite chicken pasta salad with dill that is no longer on the menu. Great lunch."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "Bar makes a great, well shaken Cosmo in a friendly atmosphere. The bread & dip are to savor, and dinner entrees versatile. Also, true to their reputation and service - lunch salad special of walnuts, cranberries & gorgonzola cheese was crisp, well prepared and presented; Mimosas spiked right; and, they saw to the comfort of my out-of-town disabled friend and waited upon us with a smile."

  • "Great place to bring out of town or any guests. Nice neighborhood restaurant. The best Tiramisu dessert !"

  • "We always gravitate toward Pasta Primavera when we decide last minute to go out. Always a good meal here."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "What a wonderful gem this establishment is... the food is outstanding and the menu has some tasty and mouth watering selections -- Caesar Salad - one of the best and the veal piccata absolutely deliciously. Fresh, innovative ingredients, along with excellent service in a most welcoming atmosphere. That's what Pasta Primavera is all about. Definitely will return again and again."
