“Wonderful cuisine!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Highly recommend. Some of the best Italian food I've eaten even when compared to Italy restaurants. The service is very personal. Hey spend a lot of time explaining how things are prepared. I had a fresh fish that was out of this world. Great wine list.

“Great room, good food, would def go back”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice meal. Very hip brick barrel vaulted room with open kitchen. Extensive wine list mostly Italian. Salads were fresh but average. Pastas better, truffle pasta was expensive of course, but delicious. Great service, would def go back and try a steak,

“Nice restaurant, disappointing meal”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We made reservations for dinner at La Finestra and were greeted by friendly and accomodating wait staff. The menu looked great and we ordered wine, appetizers, pasta and dessert.

My main course was Linguine with smoked clams and eggplant. I thought it sounded delicious. When it arrived, the smoke flavor was overwhelming to me and I couldn't eat it. The rest of my party enjoyed their food, but I was really disappointed with mine. I'm sure there are other things on the menu that are very tasty. I just ordered the wrong thing.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Service was what one would expect from a top Italian restaurant. You can't go run and definitely not a tourist trap!!

“Best Italian in Prague”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I was there already 3 times and have to say they are the best in italian restaurants in Prague. They have sister restaurant Aromi which is very good as well. High quality of food and service, especially the service is great. Interesting products nicely present and the taste is very good as well.
Huge selection of wines and nice atmosphere.
The only point which i have its bit more expensive than it should be. how ever ill comeback.
