We have been here many times in winter. The restaurant is very welcoming, but some people find it too dark, even when well lit by candles. The menu is fairly extensive. The lasagne is excellent and there is always a good selection of well priced wine. Staff appear to be exclusively female and speak excellent English. Good value for money.

We have been coming to Prima Pasta with friends for a number of Years and the food and service has always been excellent, but this time we were advised Staff had been reduced due to approaching end of Season. We had booked earlier which was fortunate as it transpired that a party in total 20 had arrived without reservations. Hot... More

The only place in Portugal where I miss eating when I'm away. All the pasta dishes and pizzas I tried are extremely good, not to mention the amazing deserts, like the profiterole and the pavlova with irish cream. The service is fast and the staff is very nice. I'll be back, for sure.

The food was so tasty, it was freshly cooked by a master of his/her craft. The service was excellent too, fast, friendly and helpful. The generous portions came out piping hot. A jug of the (local) house wine was excellent value, and was a refreshing accompaniment to all the delicious food. This place offers real value for money, a three... More
