We didn't expect to find a place in downtown Prague to make us feel like Italy but so it was. We found it merely accidentally as while were strolling the narrow streets looking for a specific restaurant we had in mind. But from the first...moment we saw Giovanni, the place caught our attentions and so we stayed. And it was the right choice! The food was great, the old building tastefully decorated and the atmosphere was intimate and friendly. We dined there twice and were each time were served by different waiter, however their attitude was very appropriate. Smiling face, nice talk and good sense of humour. Definitely a place to come back whenever in Prague!More

The food was cooked very well and was very tasteful. I would have rated 5 stars, but unfortunately the young male waitress was very rude and sarcastic when taking payment. After tipping a restaurant the least you expect is to be spoken to properly.

Called in here on our last night in Prague with friends. Place was busy but staff found us table inside, they could not age been more friendly. We all chose what was labelled 2nd best Pizza in Europe, no idea if it was but we...all thought it was excellent. Would definitely recommend this place, good location not far from old town square.More

Found this cozy restaurant hidden at the back of the crowded streets while looking for early lunch - unfortunately, most of the places around could not serve lunch at 11 in the morning. Pizza was amazing, so as pasta - as much italian as was...expected before deciding to give this place a try. Tables are available either in the quiet backalley or in cozy italian interior inside.More

Came here for some pasta and pizza and felt like I was in Italy again. Absolutely beautiful and great service. Unsure about other reviews saying bad things about service as ours was brilliant! Would definitely come here again, can’t recommend enough.

We tried to dinner at this restaurant. First we asked a table outside but the waiter said it was not possile to make a reservation. We needed to wait. After having a table free we asked the menu, the waiter ignored us. After some some...time the menu appeared launched to the the table in an inproper mannner. He was so rude with no reason. Of course we did not stayed there. How it was possible in a touristic place? Forget this place!More

Do not let the exterior trick you. This place is unwelcoming, the staff are terrible and they actually shouted at our kids (1 year and 3 year olds) for talking to each other. They were not happy that we had a pram. We were totally...ignored throughout the meal and everything including took a long time. Avoid this place even if everywhere in Prague is closed!!More

Lovely, doughy pizza and flavoursome toppings. Rich tomato sauce and creamy mozzarella. I had “salame” and that was a really great pizza and my girlfriend had a margherita, which was also fantastic. My only small complaint is that the range of options on the menu...were not perfectly to my taste (a hot salami pizza, I.e. also with chillis and onions would have been nice rather than just salami), but in terms of the experience as a whole it was great. Also rather cheap, as with many things in Prague - with two alcoholic drinks and a garlic bread as well as the pizzas, the bill came out in the region of £20!More

Dreary inside. It was a wet day. But the Pizza was tasteless. It was no doubt one of the worse pizzas I’ve ever eaten. Gruff service on top.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
