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.

Simple, surprising and delicious!!!
Very nice place and great service.
The lasanha was fantastic and I can't complement enough the spinach ravioli. For desert go for The Fungo!!!

Went there for dinner in April 2013. The place was a bit hard to find but well worth the trouble. The service was excellent and the food was great. We had drinks of white port wine which we never would have thought to order but the recommendation from our waiter turned out be be a nice, refreshing drink. The pasta was nice, too. We were travelling as a couple but this place would really suit for any kind of group.

Reservation made by phone to 9:30 pm but arrived at 9:05 at the restaurant door because I know how hard it is to get a place for the car on a Friday night in the heart of Lisbon down-town, there I got the good surprise the "Valet service" sign. The valet didn't have anything that proved he was really a "valet" and the member of the staff with whom I shared my concerns didn't pay much attention...
The table was ready but the light was so weak that we had trouble reading the extensive menu (I had to get up to read it near a lamp!).
The food is superb. We made a meal of entries: "bruschetta", bread and olive oil, mushrooms filled with cheese (funghi ripieni), salmon carpaccio and fried eggplants (Melanzane alla parmigiana).
Wine an awarded red bottle "Quinta de Lagoalva" reserve for €17,5. For desert a lemon sorbet (Tartufo al limoncello) and Tiramissú.
Service nice but as the place is very busy after 9 pm they don't have plenty of time to give the necessary attention to clients. Staff from Nepal (?) speaking better Italian than Portuguese.
Romantic atmosphere but quite dark in my opinion.
Bill: around € 60
