Cicala Trattoria - Back in 1997 a unique opportunity started to present itself in the centre of Prague - an opportunity to taste the real Italian cuisine flourishing under the baton of the culinary maestro Aldo Cicala. Today it has already been fifteen years since the restaurant opened for the first time and over these years it has won renown for its cosy family atmosphere, received numerous prestigious awards and welcomed many famous personalities. The restaurant owes its success first and foremost to its rich homemade Italian cuisine served with great attention to detail under the supervision of the talented chef David Cicala and to its emphasis on the quality of traditional ingredients. The restaurant also earned its high reputation thanks to the always friendly and accommodating staff who are also members of the Cicala family and create a genuine family atmosphere.

Truly authentic Italian food with all the best dishes. Lovely wines in great atmosphere. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a lovely seafood linguine and was able to sample the wine by the glass before ordering. Lovely evening all round but beware you are not put off by the unassuming entrance.

However the restaurant downstairs was fully booked, the owner proposed us to take place upstairs. Together with his family in a place something just like a living room. Quite cosy it was. The food was Italian, good. Real mozzarella. Pasta al dente, sugo picante. Fillet of tenderloin really tender.

This restaurant does not look like much from the outside. Inside, it looks like a deli. However, the actual restaurant is downstairs. It is small and quite cozy. The place is run by an Italian and his children. We probably had one of the best meals in a long time in this restaurant. It certainly was one of the best... More

We were here with a group of friends and had a nice time. Food is good - I guess, from the menu, their pasta is the best value for the money as it was really delicious and portions were not small. For my friends, their desserts were the highlight (too sweet for me). On the other hand I must say,... More

A little family-run gem serving excellent, authentic Italian food. My partner rated his pasta and bean soup as the best he has ever had & my seafood risotto was pretty marvellous too. And all so reasonable (including the wine). Venture in and you surely won't be disappointed.

My husband and I thought we'd try this restaurant out given the good reviews, what a disappointment. We waited a considerable amount of time for our main meal. My food was just lukewarm and with very little flavour, my husband's was acceptable but not of a very good standard. Will most certainly not return Tom tis restaurant.

This restaurant was across the road from our hotel. As others have said the frontage disguises the lovely restaurant within. Friendly service and great food and wine. We had starters and for main course - steak and spaghetti vongole, oh and puddings and liquers!! We didn't want to leave. Reasonable prices. We were tempted to go back but they are... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
