From the airport you can take a Aerobus directly to the center of the city (line 91), available every 20 minutes from 7:00 to 21:00, or you can take the bus. Find out the routes and the prices and more practical tips here.
If you prefer you can take a Taxi. Charge wil be according to the meter and it's costs around €10 to get to the center of the city during the day and a little more at night. Beware of dishonest taxi drivers (they are everywere and also in Lisbon). They will see that you're a tourist and might be tempted to charge you more than they should.
Alternately, you can buy a taxi-voucher in the airport. This way you pay a fixed amount and you don't have to worry about arguing about the price. Depending the distance you want to cover, the price of the taxi-voucher varies between €15 and €30.
