Nice Italian food!

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

I convinced my partner to try this after reading the reviews online. We walked for about 20minutes to get to the restaurant, once we arrived we were having second thougts about going inside- The front looks like a cafe/deli and looking through it didnt look like a restaurant more like a living room.. with a man watching football!

Don't be put off by the frontage. Go downstairs to a little bit of Italy. Good food, friendly service at a good price. Really enjoyed this little surprise.

We went to the bar next door (which was great) and asked them about dinner. They send us to Cicala Trattoria which was an unexpected jewel. At first we were puzzled about the entrance but the actual restaurant was in the cellar. Food was excellent and authentic, atmosphere great. Loved it!!

This restaurant looks pretty ordinary from the outside. Go in and be welcomed by the owner ( who speaks good English ) or his wife ( who does not ) Go downstairs and you will enter a different world. Authentic Italians with authentic Italian food. We had a super meal there and were well looked after. Not too expensive either.

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.
