Primavista Restaurant Review: Decor-wise, not much has changed since the place opened in 1989; there's still an old-school phone booth with the phone removed. But it does Italian food right, offers a killer view (be sure to request a window seat), has good service and sports a decent wine selection. For starters, we recommend the carpaccio Parmigiano (thinly sliced raw beef with Parmesan, capers, olive oil and hearts of palm). You can choose to "dress up" a salad or pasta by adding extras, such as a veal meatball. Among entrées, we recommend the New Zealand lamb chops in a garlic rosemary crust with creamy mustard sauce; order it with a side of pasta or a vegetable such as sautéed asparagus. Vegetarian and gluten-free menus are also available (try the risotto with exotic mushrooms). To finish, traditionalists may go with the layered tiramisu. Nonconformists might like the Tuscan brownie with hazelnut gelato and white chocolate bark with toasted almonds.
