Food was delicious, the setting is nice. It was Valentine's Day, so I was given a rose as we left...nice touch!

Staff asked for our name from the reservation, he left to find it in the computer. About 5 minutes later some comes around asking for names to be put in the list. I told him we have reservation and already gave our name. His exact response was “everyone’s got reservation so give me your name and I’ll put it down on this list because this is what we are using”. I come here often and didn’t appreciate that response. I made reservation 2 weeks in advance to avoid this. In that 5 minutes other people had come in, and their names were ahead of mine.
Food was terrible. My chicken piccata was watery and chicken was like tough sliced boiled chicken. We didn’t get a bread basket till our dinner arrived. I waited for 15 minutes to get a refill.
Best part was getting the tiramisu to go.

We were greeted upon entering the restaurant. We arrived early and were seated after a short wait. We were given updates and we appreciated the staff interacting with those waiting to keep everyone up to date. We sat at a nice table in the back room. We enjoyed a very nice dinner. The food was fantastic. The portions were large. It was a nice night out. I’m looking forward to returning. The downside - parking is limited.

We often find we have a craving for a good, Italian meal at the end of a long trip. This restaurant is quite close to our house and a good place for us to stop. We always enjoy the food and the service is excellent.
This trip, we had two pastas. One, the Chicken Dijon is a favorite of ours and did not disappoint. The other was the butternut squash with a creamy tomato sauce. The sauce, while very good, overwhelmed the taste of the butternut squash. It was a good dish, but I would prefer to have butternut squash with a less tasty sauce. I find I enjoy it with butter and sage much more.
We had the arugula and spinach with strawberries and peanuts salad which did not disappoint. We ordered a wine that they were out of. The waitress suggested a similar, more expensive wine. We were tired, so opted for a Chianti instead. We skipped dessert. Our craving satisfied, we went home and crashed.

The food was excellent. Well prepared, very tasty, with good sized portions. The kitchen was backed-up and the food took quite a while to come out, but we were not in a hurry so this was not a particular problem for us on this occasion. Our server was friendly, very attentive and proactive in keeping us informed regarding the status of our meals. It had been quite a while since we had last been to this restaurant, but we enjoyed the food so much that we will definitely come back again in the foreseeable future.

Nobody greeted us on arrival, when someone was seating us we had no idea until he turned around and looked at us like “are you coming?” It took about 20 minutes to get water after we asked 3 Times.. the waitress broke the cork into our wine.. our appetizer order was taken about 15 minutes in.. and entree order taken just about when we were done with our appetizers.. we never knew where our waitress was but it wasn’t even busy. It was just a mess..

When we walked in it was casual and a little noisy due to the crowd. We were seated in a back room which was perfect. We had wine and an app, then our entrees. Everything tasted great, the service was good too. Will go back to this place.

Tried the happy hour menu and everything was delicious. Clams, calamari and muscles all wonderful and such a great deal. Perfect amount for two. As usual, a great meal.

Had a great meal at Pasta Primavera, looking forward to going back. There were about 6-8 entrees on the menu that I would have loved to try, but a guy and only eat so much. I took my wife and dinner out for a causal dinner. We brought our own bottle of wine, but they have wine and serve cocktails here also. I had the smoked salmon appetizer and my wife and daughter had the bruschetta. They both had two different chicken Pasta Dishes and I had the Gorgonzola Pasta....all the dishes were great. Ended the meal with cheesecake, tiramisu, and a lava cake:) Cant wait to go back, definitely recommend coming here!

Located in a little strip mall with limited parking. They could not find our Open Table reservation, but were ready to accommodate our party anyway (I provide a reservation number so they eventually got us into their system). Quite busy and the tables are packed in quite tight. However, we did not really notice the crowd noise. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We quite enjoyed the quite reasonably priced food. The chicken saltimbocca was tasty. One member of our group had the cioppino which was quite generous and good. A good family dining experience. We will come back!

Other than trying to find parking (only a few scant parking spots in front of the restaurant and almost no on-street parking) the food was good, the staff welcoming, kind and prompt. We’ll definitely go back.
