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.

Amazing Italian food! Must go and eat here.

We were staying opposite and used Trip Advisor to find somewhere for dinner. We wouldn't have even consider this restaurant had we walked past as it is just ... well an Italian restaurant.

I found out about this place from an expat friend who has lived in Prague for a long time. I was a bit concerned when I walked in the front door, but then they escorted me into an amazing cellar restaurant. The food was outstanding - I loved the Lasagna and Mushroom Risotto. The kids also liked the pasta. Good... More

This restaurant is family business run by Italian family. Thanks to that everyone from waiter or waitress to chef are members of one family. This italian touch is very visible and definitely also tasteable. Cuisine, quality of meals, quality of wines, quality of service is superb and yet simple, honest and welcoming. This restaurant is well located in city center,... More

This restaurant is a little hole in the wall. On recommendation of our hotel we tried it and loved the food. It was nice and quiet and the owner was dining inside making sure the service was exceptional. The pastas were all delicious and the dessert cannot be missed.

Though the location is not impresive, the family that runs the restaurant offers delicious home made Italian authentic food from fresh ingrediences. The family staff is very friendly and advisable.It is a very special Italien restaurant in Prague. The owner has high reputation among other Italien restaurateurs.

Went there for dinner and yes, it is a bit disconcerting when you walk in and looks like you walking into someone's living room. You will be directed downstairs to a homey dining area where good and original italian food is served. House wine was good (for a house wine) and the total bill was reasonable. I recommend this place... 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.
