We took our family of 6 there for Christmas Eve and we went before the busy time period so we had great server attention and the food was hot and didn't have to wait long. We had shrimp scampi, fettuccine alfredo with chicken, veal parmigiana, chicken parmigiana and a special dish not on the menu suggested by our server. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The cheese garlic bread was a good starter. The lemon cake and cannoli were great ways to end the meal. We will go back.

Good italian food, reasonably priced with attentive service. Would like to see a more extensive wine list. Location can be deceiving, and the inside is kind of old, but again, the food was good.

Primavera is a hidden gem in Harford County! It's not fancy, but the food is delicious! They have amazing bruschetta and homemade salad dressings. The entrees are made to order, and they allow most requests/substitutions. The Rose sauce is excellent, and so are the meatballs and eggplant. The prices are reasonable, and the portions are large; you'll most likely have leftovers. My husband and I have been to Primavera several times; the restaurant is never too crowded, even during our most recent visit on a Friday evening. However, the service and food are always excellent. Highly recommend!

The night we visited was the most busy we have ever seen Primavera (we go there frequently). Despite that, the service was "very good" as opposed to its usual "outstanding". The staff was hustling. Our server later apologized; we responded we understood fully. (Is the Saturday evening before a super bowl known for busy restaurants? My spouse had the Pork Osso Bucco and I had the Sausage Napolitana. Both were excellent. We did not visit the bar so can not comment on that. We will definitely be going back.

We had eaten here a number of times after it first opened. Then about 3 years ago we had several really mediocre meals in a row and stopped going. However, this is the second time recently that we have eaten at Primavera and both meals were very good. It is attractive, the food was not world class but was definitely above average. Everyone enjoyed their meal so each one was good. The Italian bread was fresh and crusty & the salads with house dressing were crisp and not drowning in the dressing. Service was attentive. Definitely worth a visit.

The Food is always consistent and they are willing to work with you to accommodate your tastes. Will substitute different sauces if you want, also the pasta of your choice.

Friends of ours prefer to meet at this restaurant to catch up; we have been doing about 2-3x a year. Every time we have been here the food has been very good and the service equally good. I am surprised that this restaurant isn't mobbed. The prices are reasonable too. We would eat here more often but prefer not to eat heavy Italian very often.

We heard that this restaurant was excellent, but we wouldn't know. We made a reservation and were seated quickly. There were 2 other tables being served at this time. The hostess said that our server would be over soon and asked if we wanted drinks. We told her that we did, but she said she could only get us water or soda; the server would take our drink orders. We waited for more than 15 minutes- the server walked by several times but never stopped at our table. So, we decided that if it we couldn't even orders drink in this amount of time this probably wasn't the restaurant for us. We went to the Italian restaurant in Joppatown and had excellent service there.

Food here is the typical Italian American restaurant but with higher prices. For the atmosphere I can't believe they charge $10.00 for a small martini. The bill for two of us with no coffee nor dessert was over $100.00. That was so only one drink and one glass of wine! Seems a little pricey for a place that's more like a bar.

The best mozzarella sticks and marinara appetizer. My husband and I always order mozzarella sticks when we dine out at various restaurants. Primavera has the best. The cheese is melted perfectly and the batter is light and flaky. They melted into your mouth
.
For dinner I enjoyed a chicken Caesar salad. It was a perfect salad. The romaine was crispy and the chicken was tender. My husband ordered spaghetti with meatballs he said his meal was delicious.

Our server was great. She kept our drinks full and made sure the food arrived hot.

Primavera is my favorite restaurant. I love the relaxed atmosphere......diners seem to be comfortable in jeans or dressed up. The noise level in the restaurant area allows you to effectively converse with your dining partner(s). Service is always friendly and the best part....I have never had a bad meal!!!

Our table of 6 was waiting for us without delay. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. We had such a good time enjoying good food and good company that we were the last ones to leave the restaurant. I apologized to the waitress as we left for holding her up, and she brushed it off with a sincere reply that she was glad that we had enjoyed ourselves.

The Italian food was ok, the service was good, but the location is not inviting. The restaurant is located in nowhere land in Harford County in a reclusive location. The worst part of the experience was none of the pasta was homemade. However, the bar started getting busy even before dinner, which lead me to believe that maybe that's where they do most of their business. This food was ok and therefore I won't be returning.
