Well this is quite the little gem! On our last night in Prague we went for something local, just round the corner from it hotel. If your not local it's worth finding because the food is exceptional! Without a doubt the best minestrone soup I have ever tasted followed by an amazing array of pasta dishes with the most authentic... More

4 of us turned up without a reservation on a Wednesday at 6.45pm and were seated in an area off the main dining room - which actually worked in our favour as it was almost a private room. Waiters were attentive. However, food took a while to arrive and afterwards, we waited for about 10-15 minutes for payment to be... More

Step through the small door, and enjoy the family Italian atmosphere of this friendly restaurant a bit away from the touristy crowd. They perfectly adapted their menu according to our diets and to make sure that we can have some common dishes to share. Everything is fresh and well cooked. I would come back with pleasure.

Went here purely based on the trip advisor reviews and I am so glad we did!! Very true that you need to book, we were lucky we were passing early so managed to get a table around 6pm without booking but after we finished around 7:30pm we saw 4 sets of people be turned away due to being fully booked....

Little place, a bit hidden close to IP Pavlova, with absolutely fantastic food. My pasta were so tasty that I decided to take another course of pasta instead of dessert. The second pasta were so good that I finally took also a dessert. Really great evening, in this "family-style" restaurant, with very pleasant writer. No rush, more kind of "slow-food"... More

This was such a delightful experience it would be tempting to keep quiet lest it gets too busy. It's already a favourite in Prague. We only managed to get a reservation with two days notice - but this was in the run up to Christmas and they were busy with group bookings. The atmosphere in the downstairs restaurant is very...

We wanted a restaurant close to our hotel an a Monday evening and decided to walk in and see if we could be accommodated! As previous reviewers state don't be shocked or put off when you walk in! This is a family run restaurant and in true Italian style the family is the most important thing and then the food... More

This restaurant was here when I first came to Prague in 1997 and is still excellent. Mr. Cicala is still at the restaurant and is supported by an array of family members. The entrance is on a busy, scruffy street and almost looks like an Italian deli as all you can see from the window is a deli-style counter. Further... More

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.

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.
