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.

Beautiful food and amazing fresh pasta! The tajarin al burro with truffle oil was absolutely beautiful! Very homely cooking and the tiramisu is lovely! All of the waiters were incredibly helpful including our waiter Indra, would strongly recommend for beautiful Italian food. So reasonably price as well! Amazing!

Recommendation from our hotel, Come Prima was perfect. Hidden away up a narrow one-way cobbled street, the staff were immediately attentive and throughout made us feel as though we were the most important people in the restaurant (and how I suspect every other patron felt too!). Bruschetta and home made bread were immediately served as a cover whilst we chose... More

Seriously delicious food with impeccable service. Rue was a terrific server and very attentive. He offered advice on how best to have our meal served and the whole experience was fantastic. We had an incredible pizza from their wood burning oven, and the spectacular homemade angel hair pasta with black truffles. Heavenly!

We selected this restaurant for our first night in Lisbon because in was close to the Lapa Palace Hotel and the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We were a bit apprehensive at first, as the neighborhood seems a little run down, but once we got inside all doubts were removed. We were greeted warmly and assigned a nice table. The owner... More

Whilst visiting Lisbon I had a real craving for Italian food and we headed for Come Prima as it was the closest Italian restaurant and we were not disappointed. In place of just a cover charge we were given the best tomato bruschetta that we've had for a very long time. For the main the three of us chose a... More

Amazing Italian food in Lisbon! It is a romantic venue and they have great wine too! Good portions for the price. Everything is delicious, from the starter bread to the pizza with amazing prawns and the meat/sauce! We had so much food that we could not try the dessert.

We had a fantastic meal at Come Prima. The ambience was warm and beautiful. The waiter Rui was attentive to our every need and was one of the best servers I have ever encountered. The food...I am speechless. At the end of the meal, my family said "we wish we could start all over again this was so good!" We... More

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.
