A nice and cozy Italian restaurant in the Lapa neighbourhood of Lisbon. The staff were the highlight of this restaurant. We were treated extremely well, and our waiters were attentive and friendly - especially Sekar. My girlfriend and I tried the bruschetta, caprese salad, black pork ragu rigatoni, and eggplant and cherry tomato pizza. The pizza was my favourite, but... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant and were greeted by Indira, an amazing waiter. I told him earlier in the night when making our reservations that it was our honeymoon and he immediately greeted us with a bottle of complimentary wine. It really set the meal off on the right foot. The food was delicious, the ambience was excellent... More

If not for the delicious food and great service, i'd say it's mediocre. However, the quality of dishes and great quality of service, make the old, tired interior give this place a special twist and atmosphere. 5 stars.

We went to this restaurant because my husband had some stomach issue from a previous restaurant n he could always count on Italian food. He had the steak with gongorzola cheese& I had the fettuccine with shrimp with tomato & cream sauce... More

We were staying at the Lapa Palace and wanted to walk to dinner. The concierge suggested a few places, one had been closed, so we cam here. It is perfectly fine, but a waste of an evening in Lisbon. We could have been in any American city at a average neighborhood Italian restaurant. You can certainly do better!

My family and I went to this restaurant while on vacation in Lisbon. After some searching on tripadvisor we came across this restaurant which had great reviews. We decided to try it out on our first night in Lisbon for dinner. We reserved online for 8pm. The drive there wasn't as easy as we thought (it was 8 minutes away... More

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.
