“Nice Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

They found a table for 4 on Sat. Night, Mothers Day weekend, on short notice. Busy and pretty noisy, lots of people gone by 7:45, then quieter. Food was good, my penne was pretty spicy. The bartender could use a quick refresher on Margaritas, looked and tasted like OJ in a martini glass.

The restaurant is lovely, great service, and I would go back, if in the area again.

“Could Be a Record!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Primavera is celebrating its 23rd year in Wayne and that could be a longevity record in the revolving door of Main Line restaurants. We've dined there several times over the years and have always enjoyed the food and service, so we recently ventured there with friends. This a very attractive venue with an open kitchen and tables on three tiers. Service is outstanding. Valet parking free. The evening we dined our friendly waiter presented two menus, Primivera's extensive offering of Italian fare and a three-course prixe fix menu for $19.95. Three ordered from the prixe fix, raving about the appetizers and desserts. They were less enthusiastic about their entrees. I ordered my old standby - linguine pescatora - as nicely prepared as it was 23 years ago. But Primavera appeared to be struggling with no line on a Friday evening! Quite literally, there just may be too many new kids on the block!

“Going downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

Could be better service and food, and especially the drinks. IT used to be much better, but maybe I have been going on off days. That's my story and I'm sticking to it

“High end Italian restauran”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

Real classy place. More suitable for older people. It's an old restaurant. The portions are plenty and the taste is very good. Noise level is a tad high
