This is a lovely restaurant with incredible service that is very attentive but not stuffy. The grilled artichokes were divine! As was the Halibut Picatta fish special and the endive salad. Would definitely eat here again!

My husband and I felt like we were in Italy as we dined at Primavera. The food was outstanding, especially the appetizers! We had the mussels and clams, carpaccio, and the veal. I highly recommend Primavera's if you are in Coronado!
