La Bottega Linka is the newest addition to La Collezione family group of Italian restaurants and bistros. At Linka, everything revolves around their very special X – Oven, which is fuelled with charcoal. On top of that, Linka’s location has historical significance, and was once home to one of the most renowned delicatessen shops in the interwar period. Linka is a mix of something old-fashioned with something new, and creates a cocktail full of distinct flavors and Italian authenticity in the very heart of Prague centrum.
