Weird pizza. Way too much crust on the edges. Soggy centre. Service friendly and pleasant (of old fashioned) decor. Also my wife didn't like it, she is Italian and should know.

Full disclosure: I am of Italian heritage and I had a grandmother who was an absolute genius in the kitchen. I am also skeptical of the quality of food in most Italian restaurant, because I am used to the best from my grandmother. To test an Italian restaurant I usually order something very simple in order to get a sense... More

Pizza was 5/5 with good flavour. The inside was well decorated in Italian style and the service was very good. From the strong Cockney accent/Millwall.

We booked in here based on reviews and when we arrived and saw the nice decor and some pizza going out we thought we were in for a treat. The service was good, funny and angling, which made up for some of our disappointment with the food. We ordered a Czech white wine, rather than the Italian and it was... More

I am sitting here after my meal & HAD to write a review! The staff/manager were amazing & the food even better! We had the Meat Ball pasta in Napolitano sauce & was one of the best pastas I have had! Felt like we were in Italy somewhere! Thanks again:)

It's an enjoyable place w unusual decor in the second room. We tried pizza, pasta, minestrone and it was all pretty good. The waiter was very kind. I strongly suggest this restaurant to Italian food lovers. Yours Samir Chopra

After we visited another San Carlo Dittrichova, we were very happy and we really liked that amazing place. We had no doubt that it would be worse. The pizza was to rally different. Calzone Classico had very thick dough. And the cappuccino was served with wrong temperature, very very hot. As well, the waiter was very slow and he was... More

Located right next to the Charles Bridge, the newly opened Ristorante San Carlo Mala Strana, named after the famed Opera theatre in Napoli, provides a cosy atmosphere with Italian friendly touch and most importantly the authentic Napolitan pizza. „Pizza is a passion and an art for Neapolitans and it has clear rules how it should be prepared“, explains the acclaimed Neapolitan pizzaiolo Antonio di Filippo. „The key are the ingredients and the right preparation. The stone oven should be over 400°C to ensure that every bite is crispy just as it should be.“

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
