During my holidays in Prag I was eating twice in this restaurant. I tried two pizzas: one pizza was with parma ham and rucola and the second one was with mixed chesses. Both were delicious. The service was quick and professional and there was a great atmosphere ! The place is situated in the old town and its easy to... More

We had spaghetti bolognese, bohemian gullasch soup and salads - all was fine. Nicely located on a corner street - good for watching passing-by people. Service average Prague standard.

We have been to this restaurant twice now and it was great both times. We both ate pizzas that were freshly made in a pizza oven. The crust of the pizza was lovely and I'm usually not a fan, but it tasted like freshly made bread. The wine was tasty and the prosecco was fruity - some of the best... More

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,...

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... More

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... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
