“Feel and Eat as if you're in Italy, in Prague”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Wandering around some side streets after having gone to a candlelit concert at St Micheal's Monastery (close to the astronomical clock tower), we saw people entering a restaurant adjoined by a pizzeria.

We entered a room on the main floor next to the bar and cashier. Most diners were in a room a few steps up and as that room was completely full, we decided to eat downstairs.

Furnishings were simple and clean.
What stood out was that we kept hearing Italian being spoken by the restaurant patrons and staff. We thought, well, if the Italians were eating here, it must be good.

One of the waiters was having a long conversation with a group of Italians at the next table, and all were gesturing with their hands and looked very relaxed and happy.

As the restaurant was packed, it took time till the waiter got to us, but once he did, the order was taken and the food was quickly forthcoming.

OMG, the food!
Husband ordered a cutlet with tomato sauce and melted Parmesan cheese (might have been number 64 on the menu?). It was so perfectly seasoned, and each bite melted in your mouth.
We shared a lettuce, tomato and mozzarella salad, tasty!.

There is good Italian olive oil on the table accompanied by balsamic vinegar.
We dipped the bread that we ordered (20 or 25 crowns) into a plate of the oil with the vinegar, and as I love Parmesan cheese, the waiter brought some to sprinkle on as well.
I ordered a lasagna, and it was tasty, but husbands dish seemed even better, so I too ordered it the second time we came to eat there.

Prices are not inexpensive, but the food warrants it.
Husband's P.S. is that the view of beautiful Italian women warrant it even more ;>
Service is fine and friendly. One of the waiters spoke no English but quickly brought a waitress who fluently translated.

Note that We liked it so much that we came back to the restaurant twice during our 5 day Prague trip.

I don't know why this restaurant hasn't been reviewed more - Perhaps because so many visitors are Italian?

What are you waiting for? Go and dine on fine Italian food. Ciao and all of that :)

“great restaurant for everybody”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We were at Prague with our class and to the restaurant I went with 3 friends.
The entry is located in a courtyard. The ground floor is very simple, a bit mediterranean but the cellar is a antique and you can visit it also if you eat in the ground floor.
The service was very nice and they spoke fluent English (you could ask them questions about the meal) and a bit German. We went there to eat at 7.pm and we ordered the food (Cannelloni, Risotto with asparagus, Tortellini and Caprese with free bread - which isn't usual) 10minutes after we arrived. The food came about 10 minutes after we ordered it and so it was the shortest time we had to wait for our food in Prague ;) The food was delicious for it's price and also pretty hot ;) (Caprese was with 250 crones a bit expensive but the rest costed 210crones).

ATTENTION: the prices on the menu weren't always right (for the Caprese).

but all in all it was a great restaurant which you should go (there is also typical Czechian food)
