Dear nissimir, thank you for reaching out to us. However, we believe this review isn't supposed to be addressed to us, as we are not located in or near the airport. Thank you for your time, team La Bottega Bistroteka

Booked after a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. Fantastic space and ambience. We had the Veal and the rigatoni with n’djua. Both were delicious and a glass of wine was well priced . For desert we chose from the cabinet and had tiramisu and...a caramel cake with coffee and again both were tasty . Topped with friendly staff we would highly recommendMore

We had a great Christmas Eve dinner at this restaurant that serves delicious freshly prepared Italian dishes. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive which adds to the pleasant experience. I quite enjoyed the cosy atmosphere as well. Definitely recommended !

We chanced upon this restaurant after a busy day in Prague. There were quite a few empty tables it was about 7-8pm they said only option was to sit on the raised benches in the window which seemed strange but got the impression they were...holding out for bigger parties than us two. No offer to take our coats so only option was to put them on the floor. Staff were friendly enough but it was inattentive with us having to call them over to order. We also weren’t advised of the specials and only noticed them once we had ordered. I have to say food was incredible very tasty and came out fairly quickly as well so would recommend but I would advise to reserve a table. Head waiter very friendly and pleasant. I think maybe just an off night for them. Very strange as the supposed reserved tables remained unfilled for the duration of our visit.More

Rib eye like a chewing gum, not the first time btw. Slow cooked beef as well, chewing gum. Absolutely unacceptable. Baked potatoes were more like cooked, no crispiness, no flavour, totally bland!

On my last day in Prague I decided to go to this Italian place . I asked for a limoncello spritz which was not on the menu , which was very obligingly served to me . I ordered a steak which was good . When...the cheque arrived I was charged separately for 2 glasses of Prosecco and 2 limoncellos !!!!! The explanation given to me was it was not on the menu and it’s more expensive . Where in the world is it done like this . Effectively my 2 limoncello spritz were 900 kroners !!!! Where as an aperol spritz is 155 kroners per drink ! Left a bad taste on my last nite .. but Prague you still have my heart ..More

Very average for the astronomical prices. Very pushy waiter trying to up-sell menu items and additional glasses of wine. Literally do not take no for an answer. Said no to another glass of wine and then waiter goes around me and sneakily pours me another...glass.More

My wife and I went here on our first night in Prague. We were quite jetlagged and just wanted a relaxing meal. The waiter was attentive, entertaining and informative. He definitely knew his wines. My octopus this was superb. My wife asked for a pasta...dish off the menu, and they gladly provided it. She said it was excellent. We arrived at 7:30 PM. As the evening went on, it became more crowded and lively. We enjoyed our meal there.More

PRETENTIOUS: I almost feel bad about writing this because the waiter was so nice. I live in Italy and wanted a simple plate of pasta after a long day of sightseeing. They were very accommodating on a Friday night. I ordered a starter 'calamari carbonara'...He explained it was calamari with a sauce. My plate literally had SHAVINGS of calamari on what appeared to be mayonnaise squeezed onto the plate! There was maybe ONE small calamaro on it for 20€€!!!! Fortunately I had hesitated to order more than that so I was able to leave. In compensation, they put a kilo of bread on your table. Prague is a beautiful city but they should stop catering to tourists and provide local cuisine. I should mention that I am a tour guide. Ethnic restaurants are more economical and in my opinion, tastier!!!More

Really in a class all its own - Excellent!! My nephews were over the moon about the flavors and textures of what we ordered. We went back two days in a row for their truffle tartar. We also ordered a really excellent ravioli- perfectly sauced,...cooked and seasoned. A joy for the senses. They were also really accommodating -- we went back for our second go of truffled beef tartar before our train in the early evening, and the kitchen was on break. They still made an exception for us with the tartar.More
