“Wow! Wow! Wow! Bellisimo!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

This is a little gem of a find! A trip you must make during your hols. €10 euro taxi was money well spent. My husband and I visited on Good Friday and were not disappointed. We had a great mushroom in tomato & cheese starter served with perfect garlic bread. For main, after a pizza vs. pasta debate, we both opted for pizza (all the locals were tucking into Grady looking pasta dishes though!). My husband had a perfectly cooked pizza fiorentina and I had a tropicale. I have to say, they were THE BEST pizzas we have eaten! The staff were really friendly, the owner is a Lancashire girl and the restaurant definately appealled to the locals (which is always a great sign). We will definately eat here again. Thank you for a great meal.

“Cosy little Italian serving tasty food”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Stylish in a slightly downbeat almost scruffy way. Food is very good freshly cooked Italian, a nice change from the local Portuguese fair which we love but does lack any finesse. Needs a spruce up on the outside but atmosphere inside is good.

Pasta with a twist not your typical Italian, Great selection of wines and a typical old style portuguese building with such charm.

“Good all round”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We had a great meal in here,very pleasant staff,nice surroundings and good valu for money.Only issue was that they do not anything plain and simple ,one of our party is basicly meat two veg palin and simple, but they have no offering , and thts their choice ,not knocking the place for that, our problem.
Three excellent starters and main meals followed by yummmy yummy sweets,good wine choice ,nice coffee, we will return, the staff cannot do enough for you,the price is right and the grub is very good.

“Always great food”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

I'm allergic to garlic so usually have to avoid Italian restaurants but at Prima Pasta everything is cooked from scratch and nothing is too much trouble. We are always very well looked after and the food is great.
