Atmosphere is on the formal side, low lighting, banquettes, etc. Food was not as good as it has been in the past. Overall it was a nice meal. Good service. We have been here before. maybe it will be a while until we return.

This was a wonderful choice for our 27th wedding anniversary...the salad with pears was exceptional. My lamb chops were delicious. My husband got the carbonara and really loved it too! They comped us tiramisu for dessert and it was the perfect ending! Loved this place so much. We will definitely go back!

What an amazing Valentines Day menu! Absolutely exceptional. The filet mignon was perfect. The atmosphere is sophisticated and very romantic. Highly recommend.

The food was really good. However, we ordered a appetizer at the bar prior to our reservation. It took 30 minutes before it was severed to our reservation table.
I will try another Italian restaurant next time I go to Coronado.

We went to Primavera SPECIFICALLY to have a nice quiet elegant dinner and avoid the Super Bowl. We thought this restaurant would be great for that. There were other diners that were obviously there for that reason also...well the nice quiet ambiance with the nice relaxing music was shattered because of a lone slightly drunk women at the bar who felt it her duty to applaud and yell loudly at every play for her team. She was also encouraged by the bartender to get into e game as he seemed to be watching also.
As a matter of fact, even though we were at the far back table and the bar was at the front, the partition opening lent itself to the tv noise...especially when she said "turn up the tv".. which the bartender did willingly. We could tell other diners were getting annoyed.
We were going to order dessert and after dinner drinks, but left instead to have it somewhere else.
The manager shouldn't have even had the tv on. It was obvious diners were there to avoid the game and the sports "ambiance. "

From start to finish, this was one of the best dining experiences I have had. Admittedly, I am not a frequent visitor of the more upscale (or expensive) restaurants around, so my experiences may be skewed a bit. However, the staff was excellent, very attentive and always seemed to be smiling! What a great atmosphere! Now, the food was something else, it was phenomenal. From the appetizer of the stuffed mushroom to our entrees, all was well worth the price. I only felt bad that I was unable to eat all of the wonderful risotto, it was my first ever -- and it was to die for! The meal was finished with a complementary dessert and coffee, which made it feel even better (if that were possible!). If I am ever in this area again for a special occasion, I will certainly be returning here to relive the experience.
