Just around the corner from old town square, down an alleyway, you’ll find Giovanni. What a incredibly cosy Italian restaurant! We had a lovely red wine, some starters and delicious pizzas and pastas. We had a lovely evening! Highly recommend visiting!

We discovered this restaurant following the amazing smell in the street after dinner. We immediately booked a table for the next day (not sure you always have a table without a reservation). The atmosphere is very nice, the pizzas are delicious and you can eat...all day long, the kitchen is always open.More

We were a bit disappointed. Didn't look up any reviews beforehand because we like to leave our phones in the pockets and actually experience the place we're being at. We were drawn to Giovanni's because it's a bit tucked away from the busiest streets in...Prague and it does look lovely. We were seated by a very nice waiter but then it took ages until we were allowed to order. We ordered a home made lemonade, pizza funghi mista, an insalata Giovanni and Tortellini al tartufo (truffle tortellini) The home made lemonade wasn't very good. It was blueberries and mint and that somehow didn't go together very well. Not a big deal though, worth the try. My Pepsi cola though came without any ice cubes or lemon slice and was lukewarm so that wasn't even the very basics of hospitality fulfilled. When the food finally came us both got a steak knife and a fork for both our completely different dishes. My tortellini were served in a delicious sauce that I was only able to eat (no spoon offered) because my boyfriend's pizza was so bad that he refused to eat the crust which I then used to soak up the sauce on my plate with. My tortellini were absolutely delicious. So was my salad. No complaints there. The pizza funghi mista however was a different story. We've eaten Italian food (or the respective county's interpretation of it, lol) all over the world and this was probably the worst pizza either of us had. It was really bland, there were no mixed mushrooms on it but only champignons, the sauce came most definitely straight out of a tin. The crust was really thick but not tasty at all. My boyfriend said had he not been so hungry he wouldn't have eaten it. While we were already eating the waiter suddenly slammed down a bowl of parmesan cheese on our table. Not sure if that was for the pizza or my pasta. All in all it was a disappointing experience last but not least because the place was understaffed and the staff members on duty had to work way more than their fair share. Which in return made the quality of the service lack a lot. All in all it wasn't terrible but neither would we go again.More

Best pizza ever! It’s amazing to get this kind of flavor in Praga. The place is cozy, clean, and beautiful. If you're in Praga and looking for some Italian food there's nothing like this place. Ge Pizza fantasia!!! Winner award

Service was not great as only one gentleman on at the time aswell as the chef, he seemed to only want to give attention to those who caught eye contact with him or asked. We waited a while to catch his eye before we could...order, a table of 6 felt the same and actually left the restaurant before being seen to. Unclear if just a language barrier or if he was rude but he didnt seem to want to give us his attention. Pizza was ok but all of us felt it was too soggy. My friend had the lasagne and said it was lovely but not a wide choice of pasta.More

A hidden gem. Stunning building dating back to the 1400’s. Beautiful decor. The food was incredible. We shared grilled calamari with garlic bread. Cooked to perfection. Then we had lasagne and pasta. Amazing. Wine was great. But to top it off the service was immaculate...and that’s been a rarity we have found in Prague. Would visit here again with no hesitation. Best Italian we’ve ever been to outside of Italy and actually better than a lot we have been to in Italy!More
