I have been here a couple times. I have found the food to be excellent and the view fantastic. It is a great place for a romantic evening with your loved one.
Treat your loved one to a nice night out on the town at Primavista.
My husband and I happened upon Primavista a few years ago and have been a few times now on special occasions. The atmosphere and view are extremely romantic. The service was perfect. Our waitress timed our appetizer, salads, entrees and dessert perfectly and was extremely helpful. We will definately eat here again!! Make sure you have reservations (at dusk is best) and follow the directions on their website!!
Pros: the view and the service
Went for an exciting News Years Eve, Late seating at 9:45. The Menu was limited to ten entrees due to the capacity crowd in and out all night long; no problem, they have many wonderful entrees on the menu. I'm a long time customer and know the excellent quality standard they can attain. Until last night! We were a party of four, the wait staff seemed very impatient and pushy to get our otder: no wine or cocktail choice offered, tried to push us directly to the Entrees which we thought was a bit strange. We wanted to relax, have a drink, converse over an appetizer then on to an excellent dinner, They weren't having that! And the bread, oil and roasted garlic spread was an afterthought! Lucky we even got it. Well the food arrived with one Entree totally wrong! Ordered the excellent Lamb (pricey item at $36) what we received was a steak! No way, sent it back, waited almost 20 minutes for the Lamb and when it came out it was almost raw in places and very unevenly cooked; we had ordered medium and very light on the gorgonzola; it came smothered in cheese! Besides everyone else at the table was done eating by the time the mistaken order arrived. About the only thing I can recommend is the coffee! The ""Veni, Vidi, Vici"" was excellent but the dessert was stale! I'm a long time customer, when someone asks me about 5 star type restaurants Prima Vista will not be the first one to be recommended as I have in the past. To add insult to injury they did not even take the initiative to to get the owner or anyone to at least say ""sorry""! If you want to spend $300 on a fine meal and excellent service you WON'T find it at Prima Vista.
Pros: Go when it's not crowded MAYBE service will be good
Cons: Go when it's not crowed MAYBE service will be good
I don't usually spend a lot of money on Italian. If I do, it had better be good. Primavista is a treat we as a family of four give ourselves occasionally. I also have taken my wife there for anniversaries as well but my teenage kids love it as well. Service is excellent and food has been outstanding. On my son's birthday, he got the bread pudding and said without question it was the best dessert he had ever had at a restaurant. \r
One of my favorite Italian restaurants in town. I like others better for family value, but for romance or special occasion, this is hard to beat. View is magnificant.
Pros: View, setting, food, service
Cons: Good for occasionally splurging
I was very pleased with the restaurant and the overall atmosphere. I went for an anniversary and loved the romantic environment. Even in December the view from the restaurant was amazing and even from the tables towards the rear, which are directed towards the view. The food was very good as well as the service. They had a good wine list and their house salads were magnificent. I would higly recommend it to anyone for a date or celebration or to see Cincinnati from a different view.
Pros: romantic, good service, great view
Cons: hard to get to
the food was quite good and the view was good. the atmosphere was like eating in an old communist bloc nation.
This would be the best restaurant that I have ever ate at before. The service was wonderful. Somebody was there as soon as I needed them and I wasnt rushed out the door. The food was great also. Most definetly a five star restaurant.
Pros: The Service, Romantic, The View
Cons: None, None, None
The menu is Italian far beyond the basics. The view is one of the best in the city. If Eastsiders can find their way to this side of the ""Sauerkraut Curtain"" (Vine Street), they will be comforted to know the windows face East. The food easily equals the menu and the view. The service is attentive and prompt. Reservations are a must.
Pros: Great food, Great view, Great service
Cons: Hard to find
