Mona Trattoria, a family-operated Italian restaurant that operated for some 30 years, followed after the home was converted to a restaurant. In 2002, actor Stanley Tucci bought it and renamed it Finch Tavern, renovating it with dark wood shutters and soft yellow banquettes that feel fresh today. In 2006, Jimmy Gjevukaj and his family took over the premises and relaunched the restaurant as Primavera, continuing the tradition of fine Italian dining in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Great quality food that came out quickly. Absolutely loved the Rigatoni Bolognese. Staff was very friendly.
Very nice dining in restored mansion near I-684 in Croton Falls. Good value with lunch menu, less so with dinner where everything is a la carte. However, nicer atmosphere than most other Italian restaurants in this area. Very good service.
We went during Restaurant Week and the place was not overcrowded. Staff friendly and helpful. They forgot our appetizer and brought the entrees first, so they held the entrees until we received and had the appetizers. Then the entrees came within seconds. Food was good.
Everything was fantastic, food, service, ambiance. We were here to celebrate a birthday and could not have been more pleased. Thank you for a truly enjoyable evening!
From the moment we sat down the service was poor. Bread was put on the table with no butter or olive oil. We had to ask three times before we finally got butter. Long wait to order and when we finally ordered we realized we had the lunch and not the dinner menu. It took the waiter four times before he was finally successful in making sure that both my husband and I had dinner menus. Nobody ever checked on us to see if everything was ok once food was served. Long wait before we were able to even get someone’s attention so we could request the check. Had to ask more than once before we finally received the check. Such a shame as the food was pretty good and they have a huge menu.
Ok poor service that day. My husband and I were the only ones there and the waiter put us on a table with no place settings and we had a reservation the day before. The waiter was just talking by the bar. Another person came and brought us water after a while and was shocked no place settings there, not even a menu book.

Waited long time to get menus, to order and didn’t get Wine list!
Was almost impossible for anyone to take our order. This was a Birthday celebration. We asked to have a special dessert presented to the Birthday guest. That never happened. Drink refills that were ordered were never served. We were told that they were busy with private parties. Well I’m sorry what you mean to say is that you were under staffed. No excuse. The food that was finally served was good. But poor service ruins the dining experience.
Really enjoyed our dinner with friends at Primavera. Never rushed. We sat for an hour after dining before asking for our check. Attentive polite service. Very good Filet of Salmon Franchese, dessert was great, un-named house wine was good, shrimp cocktail excellent. Would definitely return
Celebrated my 70th Birthday! The escargot and my branzino were delicious as always! The oysters, lobster bisque, and Chicken Cutlet topped with fresh salad was wonderful. Pasta with lobster, shrimp, clams was also enjoyed. This is our go to special occasion restaurant. The waiter Joe sang Happy Birthday as well as a Frank Sinatra tune. Great voice and made my birthday even more special!
My husband I celebrated our 35th Anniversary dinner at Primavera. The food was good but considering the restaurant was nearly empty the service was slow. We wanted coffee and dessert but decided against it because they took too long. I would go again but hope for better service.
Primavera is a very welcoming restaurant
Family run by Jimmy, Swen and Jack
The service is outstanding and the food is extremely well prepared
My favorite is the Seafood and pasta far diavolo
I haven’t been to the restaurant a few years. That night was very busy but we got seated pretty quickly. Service was very slow and the food was disappointing. There was a lot of complaining from other tables and everyone there were very unhappy. Hopefully it was only one bad night but I will not go back.
Very attractive place. Food was good, some very good. Portions were inconsistent. Rack of lamb was a very large portion (full rack). Scallop entree came with 4 scallops, 2 were on the small side. Prices were a little high. Almost $200 for dinner for 2 including entree, 1 cocktail ($15 for an Old Fashioned!) and 1 glass of wine each, inc. tax less than 1 hour for dinner.
Had we been seated anywhere but in the bar, we would have given this restaurant better ratings but, we were seated in the bar and were not happy!!! Food is great. Ask for the main dining room!
Great place I would recommend primavera To anyone looking for A great meal and fantastic service
What a wonderful evening we had!! Excellent food, atmosphere & service!! I highly recommend the branzino & the Dover sole dishes. Both were outstanding!! We will return again & again!!!
The food and service was wonderful. We sat on the front porch and the ambiance was delightful.
We were a party of 8 and were put in the small front room. It was quiet and allowed everyone attending to easily converse. The food was very good and service outstanding. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a large party of people.
Delicious food. Wonderful service. Ahi tuna special was delish.Flounder Francaise was wonderful also. Linguine special with lobster, clams & mussels was loaded w/ seafood.( I think the lobster was really langostines)
Restaurant near me, but will make an effort to go more often! They have a bar w/ seating for more casual fare too.
Food fantastic. Vast menu including appetizers. Pastas , fish, chicken, steak and chips all good. A bit on the high end price wise. $10 a glass of table wine a bit much. But manager Jimmy and staff always great!
The lobster bisque was far too salty.
Great food and the most accommodating staff anywhere. This is a must on your list of the best in Westchester and Putnam.
The best Restorant in Westchester 🙏
Love the grill Calamari with goat cheese
And the so Bronzino with that special sauce it’s out of this world 🙏
Highly recommended !
Absolutely we will be back 🙏
