After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to check out Cicala Trattoria on our trip to Prague. There were 6 of us and I get afraid sometimes when I suggest a new restaurant that the others won't like it. That was not the case. It was a short 10 min walk from our hotel (Adria). I had a seafood... More

The setting was comparable to the most traditional Tuscany trattoria. When we got in, we were greeted in Italian by what I suppose was the owner, and lead to a very homely and cool basement. The food was amazing, and I would say probably the best pasta I have had out of Italy. The staff was warm and attentive, and... More

A perfect ending to a day of sightseeing on Prague. Slightly off the beaten track, Cicala Trattoria proves that basic Italian food, cooked to perfection and served in a friendly atmosphere is difficult to beat - you will not be disappointed.......

This is easily the best meal I've had in a LONG time! And maybe the best Italian ever (yes, better than the ones in Italy). Definitely try the mushroom ravioli, cause it's to die for! The caprese salad we had as a starter was very nice, and the chocolate profiteroles was the perfect dessert for this meal.

We ate downstairs, having booked first (recommended). The welcome was warm and friendly and the food was quite delicious. Unstuffy, but with a nice atmosphere. The restaurant has no airs and graces but does what it does very well. Recommended.

I took my wife for dinner based on the recommendation of an Italian friend. We were not disappointed - everything was great - we especially liked the alla genovese.

TripAdvicer showed up with this choice in the immediate surroundings from our apartment. We decided to give it a try, and called to hear if they had an available table for 5. It was 8.30 pm and I really did not have any hope of success, but a very friendly voice asked us to be there at 9.15 (the place... 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.
