Great surroundings, food good but homemade desserts fantastic, wine cheap and overall very good, would go back. You may need to make a reservation.

“Prima Pasta Italian Restaurant, Albufeira”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

On a main road, but in walking distance from our apartment. Quirky decor, all candle lit and a romantic atmosphere. There were 6 of us, we were over an hour late but staff made us feel really welcome. Do try their local house wine (from memory 'green wine' with a slight fizz) - very nice. Excellent garlic/cheese bread and just yummy bruschetta. My friends ordered pizza's, I just wanted a chicken salad; it was not how I expected it to be so they simply left it for my friends to eat and bought me another! Very friendly service, so good we went back two days later and had the same great service and food!

“Excellent Food and Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. It's a short drive from the centre of Albufeira, so you would need a car or taxi. But, it is well worth a visit, they have many Italian dishes from Pizza to Pastas which are delicious!! They cater for families and are happy to oblige! Well worth a visit!!

“Great pizza and fabulous pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

A really bustling and friendly place which is not too expensive or full of frills.
House wine is great value.
Service is fast, food is great value and worth trying.

“Perfect pasta, perfect restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Wow what a great little restaurant. Very unassuming from the outside but a great atmosphere inside. A friendly welcome and fast, efficient service. You are always well looked after, food is spot on every time, the staff are great at recommending wines and food if you are having a dilemma! They even have a little colouring station for children which is very useful! The closest restaurant to our villa and its great and very easy on the wallet too. Well done Prima pasta :)
