Italian
Primavera has known many lives as both restaurant and residence. Originally built by a member of the Purdy family, one of the original settlers in the area, it was also known as the 1864 House, so named for its date of construction. Although the building has been renovated several times, the bones of the house are still recognizable, especially as one looks up to the charming garret, whose flat roof, sometimes called a widow’s walk, often served as an observation platform.

Mona Trattoria, a family-operated Italian restaurant that operated for some 30 years, followed after the home was converted to a restaurant. In 2002, actor Stanley Tucci bought it and renamed it Finch Tavern, renovating it with dark wood shutters and soft yellow banquettes that feel fresh today. In 2006, Jimmy Gjevukaj and his family took over the premises and relaunched the restaurant as Primavera, continuing the tradition of fine Italian dining in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

    My husband and I went for a dinner date because it looks amazing from the outside. We made a reservation and asked to sit outside. They were not busy but none of the outside tables were cleaned yet. We asked for a wine menu and then ordered a bottle of wine. We ordered mussels appetizer and it was cold, it also wasn’t served with anything, no bread etc. We were finished with our appetizer and still no wine. We asked one of the servers and he ran to check with the manager who we had ordered from, took over 1/2 hour for wine. The main food was bland and not hot either, felt like it had just been warmed up. I had duck ravioli and my husband had mushroom pasta special. Overall, was disappointed with a place that looks so charming.

    The food is excellent here and always consistent. The wait staff if attentive and professional. Outstanding seafood and chops. Pasta anyway you like it, We have been here for Luncheon and dinner and have never been disappointed. Whenever Jimmy is here he greats you with a smile and thanks you for coming. Once you try Primavera, you’ll be returning again.

    WAY Overpriced food that was mediocre at best. Scallops were seared and then doused in a weird sauce. Risotto was gluey and flavorless. My husband's filet mignon in a peppercorn sauce had NO FLAVOR. Never returning. We left more than half our plates untouched and were not asked why...

    I feel like it was just ok. The food was decent but nothing spectacular. Our bill was close to $400 and there was nothing that I’d say was worth going back for. The crab cakes tasted like they came from BJ’s and were deep fried. Ordered one of their drinks from the drink menu which was delicious, then when I ordered another (it was awful) the waiter said “oh we ran out of one of the ingredients so I added something else”. We ordered oysters and the bus boy started to take the plate away before we even started eating them. Just not impressed and wouldn’t go back.

Friendly environment with great people there to enjoy the same experience with family and friends. Another wonderful meal, with good memories as expected by this establishment and it’s fantastic waitstaff.

    I can’t say it was a bad experience but being a person that works in hospitality, it leaves nothing to be desired. This was a second time there for Valentines and this year was not like last. We didn’t have any idea of who our server was due to so many workers taking our order and approaching the table. Not a bad thing just confusing. We never waited long for anything which was amazing. Now as for the food, we were a little disappointed especially for a prefix menu at a value of $70 per person. The apps were just sad. The mozzarella and tomato had just one piece of each the size of a silver dollar. The entrees where better but for the Filet, just extremely small with a couple pieces of fried potatoes and green beans. My chicken entree was much more filling. I sure with the price influx on products they had to adjust there portions. By adding more veggies would have been sufficient. NOW the dessert!!! This is where i was really upset. The bowls had drippings all on the side as though it was to hard for the person constructing the dish to wipe off the mess. We ordered the same dessert and all had different amounts in each bowl explaining that they poured to much in the first two bowls and barely had enough for the third bowl. But they brought it out looking like a mess. All I could say is that attention to deal goes a long way. For a limited menu, please just make it look like you care in the kitchen with better presentation. I like this place and I’m not bashing it just pointing out a little minor details. I give it to them for knowing how to pack the restaurant.

    They had us packed in for Valentines evening and a pricefix $70pp with approx 5 choices of appetizers and 5 of main. Unfortunately NONE suited a vegan culinary choice. I had called ahead to ensure they could accommodate that. Well I guess they did ….. some mixed vegetables thrown on top of spaghetti: primavera. Figured it’d be great since it is after all the name of the restaurant. Well it was only okay. Some arugula leaves and walnuts was the vegan app. 🤔 For a vegan dessert he did produce a nice sorbet and the cappuccino took 45’ to get to us, fortunately I had a hot date to stare at and talk to. Service wise I’m not quite sure which of the 5 people who served us was our waiter but I hope they split the tip.

    Reservation was meaningless. Waiting 20 mins for table, never even asked if we had a reservation just kept seating people. Restaurant was extremely crowded and noisy. Not a place for a romantic date. Food was just above average. Did not have bread. I don’t know how an Italian restaurant can run out of bread. Overall just ok.

    My family and I love the food, pleasant staff , and ambiance. However, we arrived for an anniversary celebration with no one at the hostess stand to greet us for several minutes (after entering the restaurant), and we left notes for desert cookies and plate message, which was completely ignored. We will continue to return…. Once seated, the Food and hospitality are incredible!!

    Food was spectacular. So delicious. Ambiance of the place is great for a romantic dinner. Service was almost too quick. Appetizers were cleared and less than a minute later, we were presented with our main entrees. While the prices of the entrees were not unreasonable, the amount of food on the plate could be a little bit more generous. But the taste was absolutely amazing. I was on a date and after main entrees and dessert, they always followed up with water or refills on coffee and I never felt urged or rushed to leave our table. I DEFINITELY will be coming back.

    Food was great. However there was a Party going on downstairs so not one parking space available in the lot. Difficult for getting a 90 year old woman in the door. We parked in a non-space in front of the door but manager was ok with that. Made reservation and specifically indicated that it was a 90th bday celebration. Got there and the put us at a table for 5 when the reservation was for 6. They then wanted to squeeze another chair at same table instead of moving us to another larger table which we insisted they do as the dining room was empty with the exception of one other table. Reminded them 3 additional times about the birthday and that we wanted a cake or dessert with candles. 2 Desserts were brought out separately with no candles. Cappucino brought out after dessert was finished after we complained about it and last dessert wound up being cancelled as everyone was already finished and we hadn’t gotten it. We complained about the fact that despite 4 reminders about the birthday they never did it and no manager came over. Not a good experience at all.

    Food, Vine, service and friendliness outstanding. The only objection is proximity of tables; I think we are quickly forgetting about pandemic and maintaining 6 ft distance; also, very few people walked in with masks on and how about waiters, owner... wow!! Would we recommend Primavera, CERTAINLY!

    Went for the hudson valley restaurant week - mozzarella/tomato appetizer consisted of one very small slice of cheese and tomato about the size of a half dollar; very small but tasty filet mignon and a thin slice of cheesecake. No covid restrictions were followed - no staff wearing masks and no social distancing.

    Bad, bad, bad! Service was horrible! Water was salty, had to ask twice for bread, when table next to us got it as soon as they sat down. Soup was bland, they forgot to put dressing on salad, main course of pasta was cold. Restaurant is old & cold.
