i made a point to order typical Czech food and was disappointed by the lack of taste -

1) potato pancakes filled with sauerkraut and smoked pork (to find the pork , one needed a magnifying glass)

2) a kind of gulasch (beef stew) with a bland sauce and dumplings - the bread dumpling were white and tasteless, unlike Semmelknoedel, which customarily are somewhat similar to turkey stuffing made into a ball -

anyhow - my enthusiasm for a repeat visit weaned after these 2 tries, despite its next door convenience to my accomodation -
eatable food, if u are hungry - decently priced - nice setting - open late -

We had a great evening at Papa Giovanni. The food and service are top notch, particularly considering that this restaurant is in a location not too far from Old Town Square. The ambiance of the restaurant is quite nice too. We enjoyed the caprese appetizer (delicious bread!), pesto, tortelloni, an excellent bottle of wine, and some coffee. I cannot recall the total price, but we were pleased by it. I highly recommend Papa Giovanni!

Our daughter and boyfriend had recommended Papa Giovanni and we were not disappointed. It has a good welcoming friendly atmosphere with good Italian food at good prices particularly as it is only about 100 yards from the Old Square. We eat here two out of our three nights and enjoyed our meals both times. Pizzas are large with thin crispy bases with all the usual offerings including Calzoni. Pastas are very good, I particularly liked the Lasagne; one unusual pasta which my wife enjoyed is a moussaka lasagne with potatoes (lasagne di patate). Try the dark beer, it is really good.

We had just left the square after seeing the astronomical clock and were looking for somewhere for lunch when we found this wonderful little restaurant on Melantrichova.

We had two delicious perfect thin crust authentic pizzas with wine and beer and it was stunning. It was very reasonably priced especially considering its location.

Couldn't recommend it highly enough - people were piling through the door!
