Primavista Restaurant Review: Of all the Italian restaurants in Cincinnati --- and there are many --- this one stands out for its cuisine as much as its killer view. The restaurant, established in 1989, also is gaining the following of a younger crowd for its specials --- such as $60, four-course meals on the night of Cincinnati's big Labor Day weekend fireworks show or three-course meals for $29.99 Monday through Thursday. Gaze out at the city skyline while dining on scaloppine al Marsala, osso buco Milanese, pollo Gorgonzola over bow-tie pasta or jumbo shrimp scampi in sherry-inflected sauce. Appetizer highlights include beef carpaccio with Parmesan, capers and hearts of palm as well as carciofi (artichoke hearts with snails and mushrooms). Every section of the menu, from pastas to entrées to starters, is more elaborate and interesting than the norm.
