The Menu had interesting dishes and we ordered a good selection as we wanted to try Italian food for a change. The majority of the dishes were nice except a pasta dish that I found a bit bland. The wine was very nice and we got a professional and courteous service. Overall we enjoyed our meal.

Best meal I've had in Prague and that includes some very highly rated restaurants. Very friendly staff as well. Sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and guided us to a great wine at a reasonable price.

What a great dining experience! The only negative thing about La Finestra is they could not accommodate us when we wanted to go back again. The food is spectacular, as was the service. The menu is nice, but what is not evident was that they also bring out a large tray of steaks (the filet was some of the best... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
