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

I found this place on tripadvisor and I tried it, I'm Italian and when I've entered everybody were gentle. We took a mix of antipasti and pasta with seafood, gnocchi pesto and shrimps, spaghetti alle vongole, everything was tasting great. Only the pasta salsiccia and pomodoro didn't got us excited. Some desserts are home made and they're AMAZING, difficult to... More

We had our first evening in Prague planned after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor for Trattoria Cicala. This to me is Classic Italian without exceeding your budget. It is the sort of place where you immediately feel very comfortable after you descend the stairs into the restaurant proper, Cosy atmosphere just adds to the welcome feeling. They have a... More

They kindly found a table for us on a v busy evening. Service was slow, probably because they were so busy, but the food, especially the risotto, was excellent. Looking at the pictures on the walls, we shared enjoyment of their food with plenty of famous faces!

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.
