We visited La Finestra during our trip to Prague last week. This restaurant was recommended to us by a reliable source so we were had high expectations. The restaurant is located near the main square in the old town, however, still far enough to get some peace and more authentic feel to it. The design was rustic, really “trendy” and... More

La Finestra is a fabulous restaurant but, compared to other good restaurants in Prague, very expensive. Compared to similar restaurants in most major cities it's still a steal. Food was very good and very fresh but staff seemed determined to sell us sample plates to share even after we said we would order appetizers that way but preferred individual mains.... More

We planned to eat at the Bodega, but as they were closing we went to the cuicine next door. The best thing that could have happened food-wise in Prague! The texas I-bone we had to share was splendid! And with a professional staff, a house sommelier, tasty desserts and delicate surroundings we had a wonderful evening at La Finestra in... More

Mew enjoyed an amazing two course meal lunch with whine at this nice Italian restaurant in Prague. The service was great, from the moment we came in the door. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice. Most importantly tho, the food was amazing. We had mostly daily specials (both starters and pasta) and all meals tasted really great. This place... More

Despite the fact that you would intend to have Bohemian food at a stay in Prague I can recommend this Restaurant to anyone at any stay in Prague. The Restaurant serves fully authentic Italian food on a very high level that you even can get seldom in Italy. No Pizza but real Italian kitchen. If I remember right the owner... More

I was unsure about going to an Italian restaurant in Prague but some friends of ours were very insistent we shouldn't miss the chance to dine at La Finestra so we were persuaded. I'm so glad. We had what can only be described as a phenomenal meal. The salt baked break was particularly perfect. The service was fantastic - I... More

This sophisticated Italian bistro is located in the elegant part of Prague, not far from Paris Street. Apart from the menu, the specialties of the day are also tempting. Nice wine list and attentive service.
