We were surprised with the food we tasted. It was fantastic! Now we have a new favorite Italian restaurant in the city. It is just across the city hall. I ordered for their pizza Corado (prosciutto ham with ruccola and parmesan cheese) and Cervo dish which comprised of hjort with baked potatoes. For dessert, they ran out of the ice... More

They offer the standard italian dishes and a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Our waiter, a middel aged of italian(?) offspring served us without any smile or interest. The food took over 30 min to arrive even though it was not a full restaurant. That is too long for lunch when you dont have that much time to spare as... More

Right by the City Hall, between Aker Brygge and the main street Karl Johan you'll find this excellent Italian restaurant with a wide range of plates. It is a popular place with a busy but always nice and friendly staff.

I had not been to this part of Oslo for dinner in a few years, and believed that this was a Moroccan restaurant that I visited a long time ago. However, there was a new, Italian restaurant that met us when we got there, a very pleasant and welcoming place with a very nice waiter who took good care of... More

Prima Fila is one of several competing Italian restaurants in town, other examples including Cargo and Olivia. It does a full Italian style menu (although I'm sure some Italians wouldn't care too much for some of the dishes) with Pizza, Pasta, Steaks etc. Anyone should find something they like here. We all chose medium priced dishes - one might not... More

Right smack by the City Hall, easily available, and, as it turned out, a great choice in terms of food and service. Their Christmas menu was just that: Christmasy, a super taste of Norwegian speciality food. A glass of Norwegian beer and the unbelievable Akevitt (snaps/ potato-based 40%) added to the experience. What a night!

Came here twice for dinner and both times it was very lively and the food was good. Staff is attentive and friendly, the service was quick and the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere :).

We had a real pleasure to find this restaurant in Oslo. Pity, we could come only once during the stay. Pasta was excellent, starters and coffe as well. Italian waiters make you feel like in Italy. Bravi!
