We stumbled upon this cosy Italian restaurant by accident. We were on our way to the Old Town Square when we saw the name on a handwritten signboard outside. It is located just off the Old Town Square, underneath the Tyn Church. The entrance is a little hidden but if you ask for it you will find it and it’s worth searching for.
There are two areas to sit inside the restaurant. The area on the ground floor, where you enter, is nice, but we sat in the “basement”, which we thought was really special, as you go down the rugged stairs. It feels like you are entering a medieval, underground chamber with the rugged stone walls and low, romantic lighting.(If you have trouble reading a menu in low light, take a torch with.) In summer there is also outside seating.
The service was friendly and professional and when we asked, our waiter gave us some good recommendations. For a small appetizer, on the house, they provide you with delicious ciabatta bread served with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and chive butter. For a main course I had the spaghetti Bolognaise and my husband had the traditional Czech Eisbein (pickled ham hock). The spaghetti serving was not huge but just enough and really good. The only thing left on my husband’s plate was the bones of the Eisbein – the meat was incredibly soft and tasty. We had it with a really delicious red house wine. We shared a carafe, which was enough for two and a half glasses of wine. Even though we were greatly tempted by the Panna cotta and Tiramisu we were to full to have dessert.
When the bill came we were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price for such a good dinner. The restaurant takes Euros, if you prefer, however it seems like it works out a little cheaper if you pay in their local currency, Koruna.
We thought it is a great idea to have a restaurant located in an old basement in such an old city. It really makes it quite a special and very charming dining experience.
