We had dinner at Prima Pasta and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Very good for kids with a wide range of children's options and complimentary colouring, toys etc to keep them entertained. We all enjoyed our meals and they even offered a takeaway container for my daughters leftover pasta without even having to ask. The wine was very good value and... More

We recently had 2 meals at Prima Pasta and both were fantastic. The quality and portion size of food is amazing. The staff are friendly, efficient and nothing is ever too much trouble. Excellent value for money. We look forward to returning again.

Me and family visit Algarve at least 6 times per year and vist Prima Pasta at least twice per visit over last 5 years. Food and service is fantastic, take 'foody' friends who all rate it as one of best meals ever. Staff are wonderful, friendly and attentive, nothing too much trouble.

Small little restaurant in Vale de Parra. Average food. Couldn't find the chicken in the Pasta. Pizzas are good and freshly made. Lighting in restaurant is too dark and overall could do with a little renovation.

I have only experienced the service inside although looking forward to the summer season outside. The service by the three angels is remarkable. Each in their own... More
