Best Italian restaurant we've ever been. Food and service amazing. Make sure you book in advance for any day. Price midrange. However, if you try to locate the place yourself, it's quite a task. But a taxis will know exactly where to take you. Apparently,...More

Come Prima stood out in an area with few options. But Come Prima would stand out for its quality, authenticity, and service among the best Italian restaurants in the world. The bruschetta, a dense toasted roll mounded with fresh diced tomato and drizzled with olive...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.
