We arrived at our scheduled time and were told to seat ourselves outside. We sat and waited 15 minutes with zero service, not even water or a menu. We moved to the front and after 15 minutes, someone finally came by with menus. We had to ask for silverware and drinks finally came after 10 minutes. The food took forever to arrive, the waiter did apologize and offered a free dessert. After finishing dinner, we had to ask someone else for the check because our waiter had disappeared. We left without a free dessert and a pretty bad experience. BTW, they were not very busy so that could not have been the reason for the poor service. I am very understanding under the current Covid mess but it was just a bad experience. We go to this restaurant frequently for lunch and dinner but probably not again.

Overall it was a pleasant evening. I got the chicken parm which I thought lacked some flavor, but I would eat it again. My girlfriend got the fettuccini walnuts and added grilled chicken and that was amazing.

I’m a regular customer and have always enjoyed their food. Nothing has changed except the way we were greeted last evening was quite surprising. We had a reservation and with a few minutes wait, the gentleman basically asked if we wanted to choose where to sit or shall he. While he went into the restaurant to acknowledge our reservation, we chose our table. Later, he confronts us and challenged us with what he said. He claimed that he had a seating plan for a larger party for a later reservation and us sitting where we chose presented a problem. He was quite argumentative and denied he said what we heard. He left us where we sat but also left us with a negative experience. Being fair, the food is always good but that is not the only thing that makes up a positive dining experience. As it ended up, we finished before any other table around us.

Covis-19 forced outside service. It was still great and the foods we enjoy tasted the same as inside eating. We dine here often and they are well prepared to make it very enjoyable, even outside.

We haven’t been out to a restaurant for dinner during Covid-19 and thought we’d try one of our favorite places. Dinner was great even though we were outside in the parking lot! We’ll most likely try other places, too, but Primavera is one of our favorites.

Eating outside was fine but the wind was a bit strong to say the least. Still, everyone was happy to be going OUT. The food was fantastic, as always, and we all picked our favorites. Salads were crisp and fresh. Deserts were good too.
Service was very good for the conditions. Enough servers to handle the California allowed patron level and all seats were filled by six PM.
We'll be back, of course. jms

Pretty noisy on a weekend evening, but service is excellent and food and drinks are very good. There is even a gluten free pasta option. Not great for a low-carb diet I suppose, but everything is very tasty with authentic Italian flavors.
