You can't go wrong with this place. Perfectly located in the heart of Prague, La Finestra and its top-notch service with Italian soul was a truly memorable experience for us. Try one of their delicious steaks, there is always something different and fresh on offer. Many nice touches between the main dishes. Maybe the only flaw, it's a bit overpriced... More

An amazing array of steaks cooked to perfection. Coupled with a great wine list. And good service. Worth a visit.

After eating at the deli next door, my husband and I booked here for a lovely evening meal. The food is equally good here and the service is excellent. A reservation is a must, as they were booked out when we first called for a Tuesday night. Although quite expensive for us, very good food!

This is possibly the best Italian meal I have had anywhere outside of Italy. The food is sublime, the service is attentive and the atmosphere is inviting. Don't know why this isn't the #1 ranked restaurant in Prague.

Fresh fish and meat, with a reduced menu but many daily specials. The service is attentive but not overwhelming, which only very few places in Prague can pride themselves on. Both our waitress and the sommelier were of excellent advice.

This restaurant and the companion bistro have outstanding fresh food. They were very accommodating with dietary restrictions. The fish was fresh and perfectly prepared. The wait staff were very attentive without being overbearing and so the service was perfectly timed and executed.

Very good service. Staff are so friendly. I think Prague is one of the best places for customer service. The food was divine. I can recommend the fritter and the saltimboca pork. Just awesome. Thanks for making such a great meal for me and my wife.
