De Carli MatteoExecutive Chef at Casa De Carli, restaurant

Never Give Up On Your Dreams

I came a long way from Italy, where I was born in Varese, via Geneva, Four Seasons Hotel Dublin, opening Bice Mare Restaurant in Dubai and being the executive chef of Cipriani in New York. I gained unique experience of different cultures and cuisines of the world, which culminated in fulfillment of my dream - opening my own restaurant in the city very close to my heart, in Prague.

But Casa De Carli is not only about Matteo, it is also Lenka, his personnal and professional partner.

"Only those things we are truly able to picture we can achieve in life"

My professional career was launched in Prague and, after obtaining a degree from Cornell University in the field of Hospitality Management, it went through major hotel chain Four Seasons in Washington D.C. and later in Dublin, where I met Matteo. After living together in Ireland for over four years, I followed Matteo to Dubai, where I worked for Jumeirah Beach Hotel so he follows me later back to the States, to New York City, where I was offered position of General Manager of the five-star Library Hotel. From there it was a short step for the fulfillment of a shared vision, a private restaurant of our own in the heart of Prague with immodest ambition to offer the best food and service in town.

Even if their roots are from Prague and the Italian region of Lombardy,  opening an Italian Restaurant in Prague was an easy choice for them; in July 2012 Casa De Carli was born.

We believe in hard work, creativity and fresh quality ingredients. All this combined with our experience and enthusiasm gives great promise for the future.
