Osteria da Clara is a small non-smoking restaurant specialized in the Tuscany kitchen, located in the quiet part of Vršovice. It can be easily reached by a combination of public transport and a short walk.
The menu in Da Clara could fit onto one page (or two) – there are a couple of starters and soups, main courses (“primi” and “secondi”) and desserts. Besides the printed menu, there are always daily specials written on the boards. Some days, only the menu on the boards is available (!).
The cuisine is made from fresh and quality ingredients (depending on the season, now it’s asparagus time) and well executed recipes. There is something for everybody on the menu. I recommend trying any of the soups but be careful, it can be considered a main dish! From the regular main dishes, try the meat or fish (fresh fish and sea food is usually served on Wednesdays and Fridays) – it is always accompanied with delicious vegetables. At the end, the tiramisu is a must-eat – of course only if you have still some room for it .
The prices are quite reasonable given the quality (although they’ve gotten higher over time); a glass of basic (but drinkable) wine is from CZK 44. Since Da Clara has gained a lot of popularity among locals, I strongly recommend making a reservation.
