We went to the restaurant to have dinner. We got not only bread but two slices of bruschetta for the beginning which were really tasty. We ordered some meat with pasta. The portions was rather big than small and really delicious. We also took a desert and they offered us a limoncello for free at the end. The waiters were... More

My husband and I got there at 2.30pm for lunch and the restaurant was shutting in 30mins. The waiter still seated us and just asked us to please hurry and decide. The food was impeccable - highly recommend the Truffle Spaghetti! After we were done with lunch, despite it being after 3pm, we were asked if we want dessert or... More

My family goes to many Italian restaurants, so going to one in Lisbon was no surprise. What did surprise us was the quality here was impeccable, the flavors of all the dishes were outstanding and the service terrific! Ricardo, our waiter, was most helpful and his english was great. The "icing on this cake", was the great wine list, with... More

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.

Husband & I stayed 7 days in Lisbon have to say it was the best restaurant in Lisbon. 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

Description
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.
