“What a gem!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Restaurant :  

Ambiente Pasta Fresca is just off Old Town Sq which is filled w so-so italian fast food out to scalp unknowing tourists w lousy food. But just off on celetna rd is this amazing locals only place.

 

Ambience :

Upstairs on street level is  a narrow bar and the main restaurant area is located in the basement. Nicely decorated. From the street, you will probably walk past this nondescript but amazing italian place.

 

Service

Place was packed  w locals on a wkday lunch. Reservations are a must.

 

Food :

The various kinds of pasta is made fresh onsite everyday.

We ordered:

1) The minestrone soup was just ordinary - suggest to skip

1) Roasted calamari - amazingly grilled. What a way to start.

2) Spaghetti w chilli, bacon and mushroom - wow wow wow. The pasta was al dente and nicely stirred fried  over a high fire to create a dish that is fiery, smoky and totally yummy....you would not want to share this.

3) Vegetarian lasagne was diff as it is not heavily coated w tomato sauce like the typical american style but allowed the pure taste of each layer of the pasta to shine together w tge spinach and mushrooms. Each ingredient stands alone and yet nice combo.

4) Tiramisu - unusual presentation but velvety soft and yummy w rum taste

5) Italian vanilla ice cream w pistachio nuts and milk chocolate - rich and decadent, good till the last drop.

 

Conclusion :

This is an amazing place. Well and correctly voted as the best italian restaurant in prague. Ambiente woukd be able to stand on its iwn even if its in Rome.

“Good but nothing special”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

In March 2014 Pasta Fresca was the best Italian Restaurant in Prague and no 12 overall. It is in the City centre, in a basement but some tables upstairs as well where all People pass by when entering/leaving, nicely furnished.
I don't have to say that here as well people were very friendly.
After my standard aperitif beer we shared a bottle of white wine and then a starter, pulpo salad, with the main a mixed salad and my wife had the truffel spaghetti and I some Tagliatelle. A good alternative to the normal Country specific meat meals. The desert was shared as well.
Everything was good but nothing special as the title says.
The Price of 65 Euros was ok

“Great place, great food, great staff...”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I´ve been to Pasta Fresca many times and I will go back. Last time I was there to enjoy lunch with my friend. Started with soups minestrone and celery cream. Both delicious. Mains were Rigatoni with beef slices, rosemary and green pepper /excellent pieces of beef sirloin/ and Maltagliati with venison ragout in red wine /so rich and tasty/. We shared a plate of cheese selection with fig marmelade for dessert and it was a great choice. Wine selection is extraordinary and staff is so helpfull and know their stuff. Also I have to mention their selection of grapa. Great digestive.. If you are into italian food and happend to be in Prague. Go for it.

“Nice place”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

The place is nice with good atmosphere and variety of food. The size of the dish is adequate although it could have been bigger for the price. The food took a while to arrive but probably because the place is full most of the time. Overall good experience.
