Description: Praise there is aplenty for Come Prima, one of Lisbon���s best-loved traditional Italian restaurants. Being a bit tucked away on Rua Olival, an easy walk from the romantic Tapada das Necessidades gardens, is part of the restaurant���s considerable charm. A reassuringly cosy atmosphere, lovely lighting, wooden tables and chairs and friendly staff - Come Prima hits all the right notes. Expect wonderfully simple Italian classics - tomato soup to tiramisu - freshly prepared with skill and care. Some diners have said the pasta and pizza are the best they���ve ever had. What���s certain is Come Prima hand-make their pasta fresh, and bake their pizzas to perfection in a wood-fired oven. Nice wine list, too. Ask for a table upstairs where it���s cosiest.

Very relaxed and cozy mood even tough the rooms are a little noisy. The food is excellent, it has a varied menu with typical italian dishes, antipasti and good desserts. Good choice for family dinner. 4/5

I happen to sometimes travel for business here in Lisbon, and our office is 2 minutes walk only. It's actually lost in a small lane in the middle of nowhere, and no one in office even seems to know about it. Once I entered, it was a delight in every aspect: very nice decoration and atmosphere, exceptional service, delicious wines... More

I picked this restaurant, after reading all the good reviews, and I did not regret it : we walked 2km, and then took a cab to get there in time ( it was a Saturday evening, and I did not made a reservation). The place was getting packed with locals, but the friendly staff managed to squeeze us in, in... More

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Lisbon. Both the service and the food deserve high praise, The food is authentic Italian with Italian staff. If it wasn't for the presence of some Portuguese serving staff, you would think that you were in Italy and not in Portugal. The pizza's are by far the best I have ever... More

A bit off track, but worth the detour. If you want to eat good Italian food and especially if you have kids who want pizza or pasta, this is the place to go. You can taste the products are good and fresh and full of that taste we all love. I really wanted to taste their risotto but unfortunately they... More

How can a nepalese guy have the best italian restaurante in Lisbon? Passion, is the answer. Tanka Sopkota loves cuisine and enjoys sharing it with his customers. Pizza, very good, but pasta and rizotto are amazing. And in November the supreme white truffles fill the air with an outstanding smell. It's mandatory to end your meal with tiramisu and taste...

I went to Come Prima on a Sunday night before an holiday, so it was quite full, however the service was fast and the food was great. It has a great decoration and the staff is pleasant and nice. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone and I'm looking forward to return.

This restaurant is what I call a catch! The space is beautiful, with a very cosy and romantic environment! The food is actually pretty good, the wine chart is good enough, and all in all a fair price. You won't regret it.
