Primavera Ristorante, in Coronado, has announced it will not reopen following its temporary closure due to the COVID-19 mandated shutdown.

Husband and wife duo Cristos and Jeanette Stavros opened the restaurant in 1989. Jeanette and daughter Denise Savros have been operating the restaurants since 2014 following Cristos’ passing.

“This decision was not an easy one for my mother and I,” said Denise Stavros. “Serving Coronado with a staff that feels like family has brought my mother and I immense joy, however we have decided it is better to end this chapter now, with more than 30 years of memories to cherish, then reopen with so many unknowns. Being a part of Coronado’s story as a favorite neighborhood restaurant through generations of guests is something we will always treasure.”

Primavera Ristorante has been known for serving Northern Italian cuisine. It has won many accolades throughout the years, including “Best Italian Fare” by Coronado Lifestyle Magazine.
