We absolutely loved this restaurant. Had reservations at their sister restaurant "La Finestra" known more for their meat dishes. Had one person in our party that does not eat meat, so the concierge at our hotel recommended Aromi. It was probably the best meal we had in Prague. The atmosphere is unpretentious, decor is very beautiful and comfortable. The host that greeted our party of 5, was very friendly and we were seated right away. Our waiter, spoke perfect English was very professional but at the same time very friendly and accomadating. Sommelier recommended a very nice wine to go with our meal. And the food, oooh the food. They have a beautiful array of meats and cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms on display in the center of our dining area for appetizers and daily special ingredients. Brought around a plate of the fresh fish for the evening so that you may pick what you would like including live lobster. The most flavorful tomatoes I have ever tasted. Needless to say the entire staff were extremely attentive and we enjoyed the most fabulous meal. It is a long meal as all dishes are prepared to order, not sitting around in the kitchen to be slapped on a plate.

Italian in Prague? I know, it seems almost wrong. The freshest ingredients, friendly staff and owner (he speaks fluent English, visiting his relatives in Florida yearly), and a great dining experience speak for themselves, though; elegant with a touch of down-home Czech hospitality-- that doesn't sound so bad, does it now?
The cuisine is innovative and inspired, everything is just delicious and authentically Italian with a bohemian twist. The menu is really varied. They're known for their seafood, but the on-land section is extensive and fantastic. They've actually won several awards for the quality of their food, including best new restaurant in the Czech Republic in 2005 and several other international awards since then.
If you're not sure about which bottle of wine to choose, their in-house sommelier, a member of the owner's family, is very knowledgeable of both local and imported types and vintages-- she'll help you pick out the perfect wine for any occasion or dish.
If you're not there for food, but want to enjoy the space (it is quite enjoyable), the reconstructed bar area is a sight to behold. At 8 meters in length, this cubism-inspired wood bar is the visual focal point of the restaurant, and it's certainly a great place to begin or end an evening at Aromi.
