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.

Great food and very friendly staff

We ended up going to the restaurants three nights in a row as the food was so good, very reasonably priced and the owners so friendly. The food is cooked to order so enjoy the bread and olive oil before it arrives and don't miss the tiramisu.

To be honest, La Trattoria was not my initial choice for dinner but since the other restaurants I tried to book were full, I decided to give it a go –– and what a pleasant surprise!!! The entrance of the restaurant might give you a wrong impression at first but the dining room is actually downstairs and it's really nice.... More

When visiting Prague this restaurant was close by and having visited one evening decided to return a 2nd time as it was so good. Excellent starters, sublime pasta and friendly staff. Highly recommended, but suggest you book if possible as it seems very popular in particularly with locals.

We were recommended by Trip Advisor and the Concierge at the Sheraton in Prague. It was wonderful! Don't be fooled by the ground level entrance. Downstairs you would believe you were in Italy. Staff was very helpful with the menu and wine choice. It was a great meal and atmosphere. Highly recommended.

This small family restaurant has everything that a real italian trattoria should have. So cosy & simple with italian classics playing in the background. I love italian cuisine & I'm really fussy when it comes to pasta as they don't have a clue how to cook it properly outside Italy. So I was amazed by this place! Really nice atmosphere,... 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.
