Restaurant Caffé Italia
The restaurant Caffé Italia is situated at the corner of the Old Town Square and Týnská Street in the premises of the house No. 604/I, so called Týn School, just below the picturesque historical background of the Týn Church. The first documentary evidence of the building dates back to 1359 and 1363.
The restaurant is divided into two parts – café on the ground floor with an outside terrace in the Old Town Square, which is opened all year round. The outside terrace is heated with gas radiators and protected against wind and rain. Winding staircase leads from the ground floor to the restaurant, situated in the gothic cellar from the half of the 13th century. The restaurant´s ambience is brightened by permanent exhibition of paintings from the LA FEMME Gallery and illuminations of historical interior items which mingle with modern the furnishing. An interesting thing of the restaurant is a discovery of unmapped historical premises from the period around 1250 leading under the Týn Church. The premises were covered possibly in the 17th century and rediscovered during a renovation of the restaurant in 2008.
