I wasn't sure with the traffic so gave me some extra time in case...however, I ended up arriving super early. I waited at least 15 min's before going to the door which had the door open sign. I completely know I was early, but it was a bit cold and wanted to see if I can sit at a bar... More

But this was a great restaurant. A bit of a way out of Lisbon and so dark you needed a torch to read the menu but Ricardo and Albert were fun and gave good service. We both shared a Pizza it was excellent and had a Pannacotta to follow both lovely-- give it a try. David

It is a bit of a climb but well worth the effort. The slow-cooked veal was perfect. The restaurant was crowded, so booking is recommended.

Wonderful homemade Italian food. Pasta made in-house is delicious Staff is very helpful and friendly. Also known for their pizza oven. Excellent wines at very reasonable prices. Leave room for the great deserts.

We went for lunch and were surrounded by locals who obviously appreciated good food as well. The address is Rua do Olival 258 and the tel 213971287. Get... More

We can't say enough good things about our experience at Coma In spite of the fact that we arrived on a very busy Friday evening without a reservation, we were graciously greeted by Rui and Serar, and seated immediately, They provided service that was mpeccable and a meal that was superb. The Tiramisu was AMAZING! We can't wait to go... More

No doubt about it after living in Lisbon for years. Everything is delicious and not terrible expensive. The three special pastas that they have for tasting are amazing. Even though the portion could be larger and you always need to order for two people. Staff is also very friendly. Last time our waiter was Rui and he was very nice.

We were recommended to Come Prima by our hotel, it was even better than the hotel said. The meal was simply delicious from start to finish and the service was attentive, friendly and very professional. I think it was the best Italian meal we have ever enjoyed.

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.
