We were walking around the most central part of Prague near Old Town Square and wandered upon this charming little Italian place with both, outdoor and indoor eating - as well as a cosy basement. The breads were delicious and along with a salami pizza we ordered a portion of pork knuckles. Juicy, tender and a big helping - we were more than full. Made the mistake of buying water here, which cost as much as the whole pizza! But other that that, it's not too pricey and the service is good. Would definitely go here again if I visit! Yum.

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.

We had heard that the Italian food was a winner in Prague and, being hungry in the extreme, came to LaScala without great expectation as it is in a very touristy corner of Old Town Square tucked in a fold of the church. We ate upstairs which was cosier than down. We had a pasta each and it was divine; really well cooked sauces with home-made pasta with a simple green salad and a good bottle of wine. Just what we needed. Reasonably priced in an area which is renowned for being over-priced.

We popped in here to get a simple dinner on out first night in Prague. It's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside with loads of seats downstairs in a great building.

2 courses & drinks was 500CZK, very reasonable and decent quality for the tourist area.

Wasn't impressed.
Ordered a medium steak via the main menu which arrived rare, and also cold.
There was a side of fries which were also cold and resembled a kids portion.
Place looks nice and the service is ok, but it's just another overpriced tourist trap.
