I ate early, so restaurant was quiet. Menu limited. I opted for a starter ragu which was tasty; the fish with risotto was nothing special. With a gin & tonic, and a glass of red wine, my bill came to nearly IS300. Expensive and mediocre.

A perfect place for a quiet meal. The menu is a bit limited. But the food is very good. Artichokes with polenta is a great dish. The toasted bread is delicious, and almost like cake. Great wine. Polite service. I wouldn't recommend this place for families with young children.

a quiet restaurant , where talking is possible . Food is ok , although the fish seems to be very average , using old and used olive oil . Pasta ok , but ...portions are really small , more for a starter than for a mail dish .

I happen to love this place. It is very cosy and some of the dishes on the menu are excellent. Their bread is amazing. I am not a bread person, but can never get enough of it at this restaurant. I love the beet salad and tortellini. The tortellini are really special, in lemon sauce. I would be back in... More

The athmosphere is nice, the team is friendly, but here are the disapointements: 1.The soup was not warm enough 2. One of the soup dishes missed the tartollini... 3. The portions are rather small 4. The service was slow and not syncronised... 5. The taste was ok, but nothing exceptional and probably we had higher expectations... We received two deserts... More

Although the service and ambiance were impeccable, the food was not up to standard. A risotto of burgul with a filet of fish was far from being a risotto and the fish was very dry. My friend had a dish of pasta and seafood, the mussels were half empty and the pasta a bit underdone.

The staff was lovely and so was the calm and mellow atmosphere. Unfortunately, the portions were quite small, reasonably tasty and way over priced. If you're looking for a good Italian place that's not it.

This is the second time we dine here and it's keep getting better. It is perfect for couples and friends. Even on the bar we felt comfortable and welcome. This kind of first class service is rare in israel. For first course: Fish Crudo and Seared Artichokes. Main course: Egg Yolk Tortellini and Beef Tenderloin. Torta limone for dessert. (Please...
