In a small restaurant, few table for a great "slow-food" Italian dinner. The menu is changing all the time so you are sure to get fresh ingredients, excellent wine choice (even the cheaper bottles), and great atmosphere.

Friend of mine arrived a bit unexpectedly to Prague and Ichnusa Botega, small Sardinian restaurant / bistro was my first choice for a dinner, even though I haven't been there for ages. And it was good choice, despite the fact that we were seated close to the entrance as result of last minute booking. Anyway - both atmosphere and food... More

Recommended by out Hotel, Bishop House, we had a fabulous meal. Started off sharing the mozzarella, simply magnificent. Followed by strips of steak for my husband and seabass for myself. Absolutely delicious and we're used to good food coming from London. Fabulous Sardinian wine Is Currodoris Rosso on the waitresses recommendation, so good we've photographed the label so we purchase... More

Fairly fresh ingredients, well cooked and presented. Not much intimacy with your dining partners, but it's part of the concept of traditional bistro. Had a good dinner, with good glass of wine. However it doesn't justify prices 30% to 50% higher than restaurants offering the very same quality, in the same location. When i left I could not answer a... More

My wife and I had an early dinner here on a Tuesday night. We're the kind of folks who hate tourist-trap places with mediocre food, or pretentious places with snooty service and high prices. So it's hard to find such a place in the tourist districts of Prague. Ichnusa Botega is such a place. It's tiny - accommodating perhaps 5... More

I regularly go to the restaurant Ichnusa since I moved to Prague one year ago. I appreciate the intimate atmosphere, the quality of the service (which shouldn't be taken for granted in Prague) and above all the high quality of the food: it is striking that in a country so far away from the sea you can eat such a...

No special atmosphere, no special food. We were told this place used to be good. One thing for sure, it no longer is. A pity. Grossly overpriced for what we got. We do not mind paying more but there has to be a reason. Something is wrong. Like a band playing out of tune. The food was fresh, service attentive... More

Bohužel se restaurace od loňského roku změnila, a to k horšímu. Nedostanete po příchodu ani chléb, na stole není olivový olej, sůl, ani pepř. Ceny jsou vyšší než jaké uvádějí na svém FB. Proč? Vybrali jsme si z vinného listu dvě vína, ani jedno neměli. Doporučili sice jiná a musím říci, že dobrá. Jídlo je dobré, suroviny určitě vynikající. Je... More

I went to Ichnusa several years ago (~5) and it was fantastic. There was no menu, just the choice in between a meat or a fish based meal kindly explained by the Chef himself. I think it was a small family business (husband and wife?) with very few tables and the food was delicious! Now, there is a (very) long... More

We tried this place off a friend's recommendation and really enjoyed it! The setting was unique and provided a nice atmosphere. Service was a bit slow, but not bad if you're just looking for a leisurely dinner. Recommend!

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
