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.

Our last night in Lisbon led us to the most perfect dinning experience you could ask for. The waiters are do welcoming and the service cannot be faulted. The food was absolutely delicious and the brushetta at the begining was enough to confirm we were in for a treat. The food was bursting with flavours and it was the loveliest way to finish the holiday ! I couldn't recommend this resturant any more !

Such a welcoming place with friendly staff and delicious food. Perfect start to our long weekend in Lisbon. The ambiance of the place is lovely. We were hungry and got there as soon as it opened at 7pm, and it soon filled up and was bustling but not noisy. Rui was very helpful, suggesting wine and recommending dishes. He and Shekhar looked after us very well. The angel pasta with a creamy sauce and shavings of truffle was sooo good (wanted to order another plateful!). And lasagne was lovely too- we shared them both. Followed by the tiramisu (very light) and limoncelo (very lemony!)...mmmm.

I've been living here for almost four years and I just want to say that this is the best Italian cuisine in Lisbon, it's unbelievable that the owner of the restaurant was not Italian! Very nice environment and food quality, thanks to Shekhar for perfect service and bringing us limoncello as a dessert liqueur! I'll come here again and recommend to my friend.
