Great food, and great location!

This is a Italian style restaurant in the middle of Oslo. The restaurant has a nice decor, and the atmosphere is plesant. The staff is very attentive, and the food is very good. The pricing is also not bad, considering the "downtown" location. I will absolutely recomend this restaurant. Tip: Try... read more

Food and service were both excellent at Prima Fila. Menu is rather large so everyone should find something. Atmosphere was calm and enjoyable. It was rather full on Saturday night, so it's preferable to book a table in advance. The restaurant seemed to us more expensive than it actually was which was a nice surprise - it's really worth the... More

Visited the place yesterday, during lunch time. Place is pricey and quality of food is poor. My son had lasagna which did not have much of the Italian taste. I ordered spaghetti carbonara and left half of it. Too bad ! Female service was not very friendly. We asked if we can be seated next to the window - even... More

Visited the place after looking at the menu. The location is quite convenient, near our hotel. Ordered a chicken salad and seafood pasta. Since we are there before 1 PM, the pizza was not available yet. The waiters were quite friendly, and the food came out quickly. My wife have the salad and they were OK. I started to eat... More

We were eating probably one of the best Italian pizza in city. The service was excelent(waiters name was Mahir). My collegues from other European countries were pleased for both service and the food.

We placed our orders for dinner and salad starter and to our surprise both appeared at the same time! We were unable to get the waiters attention and were stuck... More

I was there with my family. We visited the restaurant on Monday evening as many of the places we wanted to go were either closed or fully booked. Prima Fila had plenty of quite a good quotes on TripAdvisor and their own web-site looked quite promising out. However, the reality, at least in our case, was something else. The food... More

Friends traveling to Norway with us asked my wife and I to join them to dinner at Prima Fila. Having dined their the day before, they were impressed with service and food and wanted a repeat experience. We were not disappointed. My lasagne was copious and; delicious; the pizza was likewise outstanding. Located just one block from City Hall.
