Prices are rather reasonable considering its central location and vicinity to the busy tourist port and park only a few meters behind. Food was fine and service also good. Coffee was also adequate. Bookings are advisable considering its central location.

We discovered this restaurant while looking for a different restaurant. Very traditional Italian restaurant. Very comfortable environment. The food we ordered was very tasty. Food came all at once. Server was friendly and food came in good time. Prices were very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

It is always nice to return to Prima Fila. The food and its presentation are first class. My favorite is the House fillet of beef. During last visit, we chose beef and chicken from the comprehensive menu. Both of us enjoyed. My Irish Coffee, however, was nothing special at all. I arrived at the restaurant at 4 p.m without a...

One of the best restaurants in Oslo. Staff realy tries to please the guest and they succeed in that. Food quality is very good and there is sufficient choice on the menu. Special requests are no problem for the chef.

I came a bit early as member of a group, and was guided to table where I should wait for the others. In fact some had already arrived, and were sitting on the other side of the wall. Wine was served quickly, before the menu came. I went for mussels. Tasty, but some shells were broken. This might be a... More

The location is in the heart of Oslo at Rådhusplassen, near Nationaltheatret and Aker Brygge. The prices are affordable, ang you get quite large portions of food. This place is good for couples, families, business... More

With no reservation, my husband and I almost didn't go inside as there were so many people milling about outside. The restaurant was busy but they quickly took us to a table for two. The service was excellent. Warm focaccia bread (complimentary) was brought out with a delicious sundried tomato tapenade. We each chose a seafood main course, Glad that... More

Came for á nice meal after along day... Got rushed service with terrible attitude. The owner/manager walking around with grim face. I like fine Italian dining but this is NOT the place. Food is obviously headed in microwave with hot and cold part in gratinert avocado then the pasta was raw!!??
