Really good, informal Italian style restaurant with a lot of classics but also a nice fish & meat selection and an excellent choice of wines. If you like octopus I had one of the best ever - very tender - in a landlocked country, rivaling...with some Mediterranean countries. The service was attentive but not overbearing and gave me some good advice. The best thing is that the quality hasn’t changed since I last came here almost 3 years ago!More

Ours was Last minute reservation recommended by our local guide, Lenka Diaz. Warmly Greeted by most welcoming staff. Chef came to table to recommend personally the fresh, salted whole sea bass with potatoes and salad as our plat. Entrée of fresh oysters preceded. Sea bass...expertly deboned at table-side. Presentation was of the first order. Dessert of tiramisu and fresh fruit tart on custard. The meal was a transformative experience amongst meals recently enjoyed in London, Paris, and the Loire. A must visit for those finding the emotive in great cuisine prepared and served by those invested in their craft.More

Concierge recommended this restaurant- for our guest night in Prague - it was so incredible we ONLY want to eat at restaurants by this restaurant group!! The food was delicious!! We shared a bowl of minestrone, I had a half order of the pork tortellini...(I *LOVED* that, was my favorite dish!), he had the lamb ravioli, we shared a small ribeye (which was cooked PERFECTLY!), with a salad, side of roasted vegetables, side of potatoes. For dessert they surprised my husband - for his birthday- with a mango cake / custard pastry and out a candle in it. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was equally as good. HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!!! We had three female waitresses, all were super pleasant and helpful!!More

.The restaurant was fairly empty during a weekday and after verifying our reservation, we were seated by our waiter. The waiter was pleasant and patient giving us time to look over the menu. We did think the food was above average albeit an expensive a...la carte dinner. I thought, for being in Prague, the house wine was extremely pricey and very stingy in serving size (quarter of a glass). We had all traveled for the previous 2 weeks and ended our trip at this restaurant. My husband gave a thumbs up for our well prepared food to the chefs behind the open counter and received a cool stare. All the chefs behind the counter just gave us nasty looks as we were leaving. Our table spent close to 200 usd and since the restaurant was really slow, one would think one of the chefs would speak to us or at the least smile and wave as we were leaving.More

We really wanted somewhere nice for breakfast on our final day in Prague and we got it. Service was very very good, the young lady was so helpful and polite. I had the continental breakfast which was way above my expectations. Coffee was lovely and...I had a primitivo (of course I did, it was 11am on a Sunday and I'm on holiday) but what I didn't realize was that after this cheesy. (perfect runny boiled egg) hamm goodness (with what I think was slow roasted peppers) was a pot that had a bread and butter pudding with Mascapone/cream and Berries (FOR BREAKFAST) I think I fell in love......More

This restaurant was stumbled upon while planning a dinner for my wife and I on New Years Eve. Our dining experience did not disappoint. Staff was very friendly and provided good recommendations. The beef tartare to start was proportioned perfectly. In between beef tartare and...our main course, we had white truffle pasta which was fantastic and delectable. For the main course, we did a T-bone steak. The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare and exploding with flavor and deliciousness.More

Extremely rude staff. From the moment we walked in, two disinterested members of staff continued chatting and had no interest in even saying hello to us. Then obviously irritated by our presence the waiter ( still without a hello) ordered us to show a proof...of vaccination or negative test. Fine, we do respect the rules, we had it prepared. We are both double vaccinated. We first showed our printed copies of our COVID passes and it flashed red. We said it has to be a bug as we just entered a different place and it was green. We then started opening our NHS app on the phone to have the code scanned again at which point rude staff member literally threw us out saying we have to leave NOW literally pushing us towards the door. No empathy whatsoever. We do understand the rules, but would 30 second to open the app change anything at all? I don’t think so. You are there for the customers not to chat with your colleagues and basically display your superior attitude. Very poorMore

I’ve suggested to go to La Bottega to my manager from a taxi because the atmosphere from outside looked so cosy and chilled and then we arrived... I can’t say the last time When the service was so warm, friendly, helpful and just looking like...she’s actually enjoying her job... she was very young lovely lady with an Asian roots.. she was exceptional! We loved her from the beginning and the food.. okay the prices are maybe a bit higher but it’s definitely worth the taste, the aubergine lasagna... simply an orgasm in mouth... and as well my colleague’s cod with mashed potatoes and lentils... jeeeeez... I can highly recommend this restaurant for 100%! Because we’ve left without any expectations in the beginning 1000% satisfied that’s for sure! ❤️More

We went there for a dinner and tried several courses. All was fine, including wine. The service was quick and friendly. You can see how is your food prepared as they have an open kitchen.

One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the

square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
