The restaurant features an open kitchen where you can observe Chef Tomáš Černý performing his artistry as he prepares your chosen meal. La Finestra specializes in meat dishes.

We're from the Bay Area, home of Alice Waters and Thomas Keller among others, and we have high standards in dining. This restaurant is up there with the best--every detail was thought of, from the huge platters to set off the dishes, to the humane raising of the meat. From salad to dessert, the food was exquisite. Highly recommend.

We were served a bread basket of homemade breads (Bread sticks were great )They started out by bringing out a large platter of Meat and a large platter of Fish. The waiter described each piece with perfection. We all made our... More

This restaurant is not to be missed. Quite simply one of the finest Italian meal we've had even counting many trips to Italy. The homemade pasta made in tradition of Puglia is truly special. Have the almond roll for dessert and finish with their homemade Limincello. Bellisimo!

A teaching restaurant with the kitchen on view. One of the top restaurants in Prague. Only four mains to choose from on the menu but all the fish and steaks available are brought to the table raw and discussed with you before you make your choice.

Nice ambiance with wooden floors, used brick walls, and high ceilings. Excellent service. We were set to order from the menu when a gentleman arrived with various cuts of beef and pork on a tray and told us about each one. We ended up ordering ravioli to share for an appetizer, and the rib eye dinner for two plus a... More

If you need to escape traditional Czech food and need an Italian fix. Don't miss la Finestra. If Robin is still serving, request him as your man. He will not steer you wrong!

Excellent italian restaurant in Prague, it could have been located in a middle of Tuscany and still wouldn't change anything. A true italian menu, with great starters, delicious pasta and nice mains: risotto and pasta with truffle were just outstanding, the fish cooked to perfection and burrata freshly from the buffalo. Extensive wine list, going through all wine regions of... More

6 stars isn’t an option so I’ll have to settle for 5. One of the best restaurants at which we’ve ever dined. Impeccable, friendly service. Hearing rave reviews from two separate people prior to our trip, we stopped by our first afternoon in Prague to make a reservation and were able to do so for the following evening at 6... More

We had a fabulous experience from start to finish at this restaurant. The waitstaff was amazing, the food was great, and the ambiance beautiful. Everything we ate - from perfectly prepared steak to beautifully served fish to the great wine was just superb. Not at all a typical Czech restaurant, and not like being in a "tourist trap". Relaxed, but... More

After 2 days of dumplings and goulash (which we enjoyed), we were ready for something a little lighter and had been recommended this restaurant by friends. We went at Sunday lunch and were immediately greeted by a friendly waiter and shown to our table. There was a good mix of large family groups and couples, the atmosphere was relaxed and... More
