About
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 restaurant is located downstairs in the basement!. First walked into the restaurant as what could only be described as a shop front. with not one customer insight. at first, I was confused and apprehensive. However, after a short wait, we were then led down the steps into the restaurant. The restaurant was snug, covered in old brick wall, decorated with ornaments and knick-knacks. very homely and charming. Just a perfect setting for a restaurant The wine was served in a Carafe, something in which I have not seen in a long time. which I personally think is a lovely touch. The waiters were 10/10, Very polite and accommodating. Everything about the restaurant is lovely, however, the food is average. I ordered minestrone soup, Lacking Flavour, with an oily surface on top. Portion size is Good, Just the food lacked flavour in certain dishes. if I was to visit Prague again I would certainly visit this restaurant again but order different dishes.

Cicala Trattoria is hands down the best Italian cuisine in the entire city of Prague. Great food, great service, reasonable prices. Plus, Mr. and Mrs. Cicala are two of the sweetest, most transparent people I met in the entire city of Prague, and I could not be more disappointed that my study abroad experience was cut short because I was looking forward to coming here for dinner every Wednesday. Not only is it the best Italian in Prague, but it is also the most authentic. Pasta Fresca is good, but it doesn't compare to Cicala. If you come to Prague and are looking for Italian, this is the ONLY place to be. P.S. the waiter with the tattoos is the sweetest man on Earth

Very nice place . Price in the range of Czech rep. I ordered panzerotti burro e salvia , they was so good , as well as for the patate arrosto . I suggest to implement the Desserts choice with something home-made, not only industrial products (anyway Bindi is the best ) , but some local should be a must . Anyway BRAVI molto bene

We were looking forward to this restaurant after reading the reviews that this was a "hidden gem." The food is good, but I have not had such apathetic, disinterested service in many years here in Prague. When we arrived, we were handed menus and then just sat for the longest time. When we arrived, there were two other tables with guests. Just as we were about to walk out, the waiter arrived. The first waiter could not answer any of our basic questions, so he then went for a second waiter. Our drinks arrived shortly after ordering, but there was no bread, no anything on the table. That is very strange for a European restaurant. When our pasta arrived, there also was no bread brought. We were not too bent out of shape about this, but we thought it was odd that it was not even offered. When our mains arrived, we were surprised. My prawns were literally four prawns in tomato sauce. The waiter had not suggested bread, potatoes, or any other side dish. My partner's mussels were very good - as, by the way, were the prawns. But here is the thing. At no point did they come by and say, would you like another glass of wine? Is everything ok? Would you like anything else? When they cleared the main course, they did not ask if we wanted any dessert or if we would like coffee... There was a shocking lack of interest in the customer. We waited, hoping that they would come back for dessert. By the time we were able to flag down someone, we had thought better of it. Paying took a while. The waiter left without saying have a nice evening. Not a place we would return to. The pasta was lovely, but we actually enjoy the experience of a restaurant caring about whether we are content with our evening.

A little gem, hidden away, serving authentic Italian food with no pizza on offer so you are forced to try something delicious from the menu. The pasta selection is excellent and the starters were generous. The desserts are fresh and taste divine. The service was also first class and friendly. Highly recommended and wonderful value for money in a tastefully presented environment.

Behind the modest exterior and utilitarian-looking ground floor, lies a true gem of a trattoria. Its not flashy and it certainly hides its light under a bushel to passing custom, by in the delightful vaults underground, with exposed brickwork, is a genuine and authentic Italian kitchen producing spot on food at reasonable prices. No, its not 5 star, and the service is slightly slow ... but that means the food is being prepared and cooked properly, not reheated. For lovers of properly made Italian food this is well worth a visit.

This trattoria near to the Narodni Museum is a must-visit if you are a lover of real Italian food! The ambiance in the restaurant is just perfect, and the hosts (who couldn't really speak much English) were friendly and engaging. But the food...was just perfect! We started with a bruschetta, and I don't think I have ever tasted a more perfect balance of the sweetness of the tomatoes, garlic and olive oil, on top of lightly toasted bread that was crunchy, yet soft in the middle. It was delicious! For main we had seafood tagliatelle, and ravioli with butter and sage sauce. The tagliatelle did not disappoint- but the ravioli was seriously the best we have ever tasted! Dessert was delicious...but we also had more ravioli! If you're in Prague, and looking for a delicious meal, come here!

To diversify the Czech menu, we chose a dinner at Cicala Trattoria. Good traditional Italian food, good wine, friendly and professional staff, average prices. In fact, it was an evening dedicated to friends, the evening when food mattered less. I must say, however, that what we received was good and made our evening pleasant.

I went to the restaurant yesterday and I still think about the dinner with my partner as it was beautiful experience. I work in the hotel near by as receptionist and I am sending (Italian) guests here all the time and they always give positive feedback so I hade to visit this place myself as well as I love Italian cuisine. This place is a real charm. Since we opened the door of the place we got welcomed by kind gentlemen and send downstairs where we were quickly seated by another welcoming stuff and served with kind welcoming smile the whole evening. Since we were seated with my partner we felt like in small Italy inside of Czech Prague as the restaurant was "honest". It was filled with Italian speaking customers and stuff so it is not just tourist trap as you find them a lot in Prague. The meals we got were delicious complimented with nice vine and music. The last such a feeling and nice meal I had was in Venice. I will keep coming back and recommend it to our hotel guests. The restaurant is not typical modern fine dining which is more concern on instagram and cool furniture but it is cool itself and does not need superficial adding to make itself better and that is what I respect.

Wow! I am originally from Rome and leave in England, and I don't normally go to Italian restaurants. This is because normally so called Italian restaurants offer a twisted version of Italian food (Indian friends tell me the same of most Indian restaurants in England). Well, given that I am in Prague for a conference my English and Japanese colleagues convinced me to go to the Trattoria Cicala. I was immediately impressed by the atmosphere, which reproduces well that of some Trattoria in Rome. When I looked at the menu, it suggested to me that there are no compromises (first thing first: no cream in Carbonara!), and it was clear that it was mostly roman. We ordered a mixed antipasti for starter, and it was excellent, with delicious bruschette, I then ordered Saltinbocca alla Romana and posted potatoes, and it felt like it was done by my grandma. My friends ordered bucatini all'amatriciana, and it was "al dente" as it should and the source was a real amatriciana. The other two shared a "risotto mari e monti"(risotto with mushrooms and seafood) and they were really satisfied. The portions were generous and the house wine was delicious. In summary, truly recommended and a well deserved five stars!

No reservation but taken no problem @ 18.30 for dinner. Unassuming exterior but classic Italian inside with great food served in next to no time. Great overall price around £40 for 2 large portioned mains, 1/2 litre wine, bottle of Sparkling water & 2 coffees.

What a fabulous, authentic, multi-generational, Italian family restaurant. We made a reservation, and were greeted by the patriarch of the family. We enjoyed the lasagna that melted in our mouths, along with Bruschetta and the home made minestrone soup. Excellent wine selection. They were out of the tagliatelle pasta because of high demand. It’s all homemade! If we ever visit Prague again, we will definitely return.

Looking from the street the place looks empty, but the restaurant is actually in the cellar, and the two nights we ate there the place was buzzing. It’s clearly a restaurant used by tourists and locals alike, which is always a good thing. The waiters were attentive, food and drinks extremely good.

Best Italian food I’ve had outside of Italy. The owner is Italian and the cuisine is typical fo Rome and Lazio. The food is well prepared, fresh and with great flavors. The gamberi were juicy and not overcooked, and the tomato and olives sauce very tasty. I’ll certainly recommend this restaurant to local and international friends.

Arrived without a reservation which meant a short wait, so maybe a reservation here is more usual Most of the tables are in an underground vaulted area which is lovely. The food was wonderful, my husband had the best lasagne he has ever eaten, and I can highly recommend the tiramisu also, One member of staff spoke very good English. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and drinks as well as the experience. Prices were very good for the quality of food.
