Beautiful restaurant with comfy leather chairs. The food was very good: we had "Salumi italiani misti" as an appetizer, afterwards Tagliolini tartuffo and Ravioli con Ricotta. Excellent wine from Veneto, Italy. The service was very warm, friendly and very professional. We had a wonderful evening.More

This restaurant was a wonderful surprise. Great Italian food and wonderful service. We were seated outside and enjoyed just enough people watching while still having a cozy atmosphere. The restaurant was clean and beautiful.

We have eaten at a lot of Italian restaurants over the years, and Oliva Nera was exceptional! We had read that the Italian food in Prague was good, but we had no idea just how good it could be. We sat outside on a cool...Autumn day evening, and Thomas made sure we sat at a heated table and that we were well taken care of the whole evening. My father is a fan of tomato soup, and he was astonished to discover that the best tomato soup of his life was at an Italian restaurant in Prague! Not too sweet, not too savory, it was perfectly balanced, and obviously made with fresh tomatoes. The focaccia bread (some with Parmesan, some with black olives) was exceptional, especially when dipped in some extra virgin olive oil and a high-quality balsamic reduction. Thomas recommended us a medium priced, but absolutely terrific wine, as well as the pasta that we each ordered—a spaghetti with pesto sauce and beef that was absolutely tremendous. The beef was cooked a perfect medium, pink in the middle, served over al dente pasta with a delicious pesto. After dinner we had a perfect espresso, some stellar tiramisu, and I finished with an amaretto digestif. We sat for some time and enjoyed our satiation, and when the check arrived we received some complimentary limoncello. Throughout the entire evening Thomas took excellent care of us, constantly refilling our wine, our water, or our breadbasket, and generally making himself indispensable. We have been traveling for three weeks, and Oliva Nera and Thomas provided the best culinary and service experience of our trip!More
