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.

Pasta was awesome!Got a chance to be here with my Italian friend.For the first time I ate Italian food with so much of care. Just loved to be here. Though the restaurant seemed to be very cosy its interior is really managed so well.

The place is nice, the food is great. I love Pizza with truffle, rucula salad and fillet milaneza. Not very child friendly and not easy to park the car.

This was a very quaint, small and romantic restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was the best Italain we've ever eaten. We had the salmon lasagna. OMG simply amazing. The bruschetta melted in your mouth. We will defiantly make this our go to place the next time we are in Lisbon. Everything was top notch!

I wonder, it must be one of the branch of restaurant from Italy. There is no doubt that it is the best place with Italian cuisines, here at Lisbon. The quality of hospitality and taste is maintained so well. And I am sure I will be back here with my family next time!!!

My boyfriend gave me birthday surprise taking me to this restaurant. The day will be always unforgettable throughout my life. I think the romantic environment with Italian flavor is the best aspect of this place. The food here is incomparable to the other restaurant. Just go for it!!!

Dinner at Come Prima was like going to Italy for dinner. The food was well prepared and wonderful ! Our waiter Rui was attentive and gave us that special attention that will no doubt make us come back to experience more. Tucked away in the back streets of Lisbon this restaurant is worth searching for! A real jewel in the... More
