Excellent food, service, and a great location. I booked this restaurant from the Internet and was thrilled that I did. Our hotel concierge could not get us a reservation as it was fully booked. It also has a nice atmosphere. A must if you like Italian/international food. Delightful!

A colleague recommended Finestra and I'll thank him on Monday. The food was wonderful and the service was world class. We had perfectly cooked pasta with an abundance of fresh shrimp and vegetables. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. The wine we selected worked well with all of our selections and the staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Being... More

This is a place where you get the best food and service possible. You pay for it but it is worth of every penny. Highly recommended, I am not sure that there are too many places like this in Prague.

La Finestra was highly recommended by the concierge at our hotel, and we very much enjoyed it. Totally cool place - neat decor with exposed brick walls and wooden tables and hardwood floors. Very good service. Fresh high quality food, and the chef puts a fresh face on Italian dishes. We were interested in fish -- waiter brought out a... More

A good address in Prague, a fresh tasty food, nice service. It's a very expensive place but still affordable if you go for quality.

Had dinner here last night with my son and his girlfriend. The food, all of it, simply magnificent. Although expensive for Prague, you would pay the double in other big cities. Great wines at a moderate price. VERY FRIENDLY SERVICE! Reservations a must but easy to do.

First class nouveau Italian just outside of the Old Town Square- the food is delicious, imaginatively prepared, the portions enormous, the service attentive and warm without being intrusive. My server ended up bringing me two complimentary after-dinner drinks when he became aware that I wished to linger at my table and take in the ambiance. A great night out in... More

Absolutely fantastic italian food. We were welcomed with crispy chickpeas, grissini, bread and olive oil and afterwards a little amuse bouche. With the help of the sommelier we picked a bottle of Barolo for our main courses (veal chop and ribeye), and ordered a glas of wine for our starters. However, our starters were served before we finished ordering the... More
