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!More

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.More

Very nice meal. Run by a lovely husband and wife. Authentic Italian with nice wine. Lots of famous people have been when in Prague as evidenced by the photos on the wall.

Cicala is a brilliant place that I have visited often over the years when I lived closer by. I visited again last evening and it is still home to great food, friendly but professional staff and an intimate atmosphere. I really can't recommend this place...enough, understated, stylish, homely and very welcoming.More

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!More

Delicious food and excellent service here in this family run restaurant with authentic homemade food. Reasonably priced. We’ll definitely go back before we go home. Ravioli in cream sauce was amazing.

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.More

Had a meal here on a Saturday evening, we did not have a reservation but they were happy to accommodate us. The food was very good especially the Bruschetta to start. I kept it simple for the main with a lasagne but it was very...tasty, unfortunately there was no Tiramisu for desert, however the desert I opted for was very good. All topped off with a carafe of wine. Would highly recommend the food, good friendly service and very well priced.More

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 EarthMore

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.More

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.More

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.More
