Description: 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.

The store has a nice sphere hanging around it. You enter the restaurant on top floor where a friendly owner points you the way to the basement. The man is a real Italian and speaks proper English The lady doesn't but they work together to serve you well. Very good food all home made we ordered for 3 persons and... More

Excellent" We would never even had noticed this little gem without Triposa app on mobile phone. You would have walked by as its shop front does not stand out. On entering it felt like a small café and had it not been for its recommendations we would have left. However, we were met by the owner who was Italian. He... More

Off the beaten track, real Italian food. Note, NO pizzas, I bet on purpose, to let us experience some other, off the beaten pizza track, real Italian food. Don't be misled by the entrance behind the frontdoor, but walk to end of seamingly empty narrow space to stairs to basement. Here, a nice arched ceiling gives the right ambiance for... More

If like us you don't like heavy Czech food, this is a great alternative. The restaurant itself is lovely, the food good, the prices are reasonable and the staff very friendly. The house white was very drinkable. All in all a very pleasant evening. We would definitely eat there again if/when we return to Prague.

We really enjoyed this little place. Dining downstairs in a cellar room was warm and cozy without feeling at all closed in. The food was great (caprese salad and spaghetti carbonara), as was the espresso. Very reasonably priced. Going out of the main tourist areas is definitely the secret to getting great food very inexpensively.

This restaurant is located near the state opera house, in a high-traffic neighborhood curiously lacking in restaurants of any kind. At first glance, it looked like a very small establishment, perhaps a bar or a takeout place, with no tables. No one seemed to be around, but since we were running out of time to get supper prior to the... More

It sure is true about getting off of the heavily touristed areas and restaurants are higher quality and cheaper in many cases. Trattoria Cicala is adorable. You'll be met by the owner of the restaurant, lead down into the basement, and enjoy your meal there. Lasagna was outstanding, Caprese salad, and the pastas too. Wonderful wait staff and the owner...
