Together with us to learn the eating in Prague, Prague fine dining may make your Prague travel more meaningful. Prague is now considered a cosmopolitan city; and why not? With its interesting mix of international residents and tourists, one would only expect something more, or even, the best in the area of eating and drinking.
La Finestra in Cucina
La Finestra in Cucina is the sister restaurant to the ever-popular Aromi restaurant, as well as to the La Bottega di Finestra and Gastronomica deli shops & bistros. These fine establishments are the masterminds of Riccardo Lucque, an Italian chef with extensive international experience who specializes in traditional Italian cuisine. The restaurants also share a motto, which translates as "simplicity, tradition and passion".
However, while Aromi focuses mainly on seafood, its younger sister La Finestra features a fine selection of imported Italian red meats. Also, unlike the Vinohrady-located Aromi, the home of La Finestra is in the Old Town district of Prague. Because La Finestra focuses mainly on meat you will be presented with a platter of raw meat from which you will choose a select piece that will be prepared for you as you wish by local skillful cooks.
Traditional and impressive, La Finestra offers much more than just meat and if you love Italian cuisine, you will be satisfied. We recommend trying one of La Finestra's exceptional soups, which include the delicious beef broth with meat cappelletti and root vegetables, followed by grilled octopus with white bean puré, calamari sautém raisings, pistacchio and red wine sauce, or one of the many tempting pasta dishes.
The interior, designed by Mitte Studio is rustic and cozy with wooden chairs, tables and floors complemented by brick walls. To sum it up, La Finestra in Cucina is definitely one of the premiere contributions to the Prague culinary scene and should be given a try by those looking for fine Italian cuisine in Prague.
