Prague visitors are often surprised how popular Italian cuisine in Prague is. But it's not really surprising for locals as the country is only a few hours drive from the Czech Republic and Italy is one of the most visited countries by Czechs.

Choose one of the restaurants from our list and enjoy the best Italian meals in Prague!
