I was a bit disappointment because I had higher expectation from this restaurant. The Alfredo cream was too creamy and the spaghetti was not al Dante But the service was excellent.

We stopped in here because of its convenience to our hotel. I am a carnivore so I was hesitant about eating at a kosher Italian restaurant. Not to worry. I had penne with oil and garlic. The best I have ever had. The service was excellent and the price reasonable. Highly recommended.

A great place for a quiet read or local people watching, and clearly a favourite hangout for the local crowd. Service was quick, efficient, friendly; the Israeli café shahor was comme il faut, and the chocolate brioche way bigger than I expected.

When I arrived at this restaurant together with my husband, kids and parents, I took one look at my mother's expression and began to prepare for an awful evening. This is NOT a stylish restaurant. It does not have a great location...BUT.....the food was excellent. We all had fish and salads which were all fresh and delicious. The portion sizes... More

We had pizza & beer and quiche & wihte wine. Only beer was not a dissapointment. Their untasty pizza had liitle to do with Italy, quiche was better - but nothing in common with real French quiche. House white wine is really bad choice. It would be better (and cheaper) to visit some of real fast food places nearby, or... More

We've been there on 12/12, looking for pasta (due to training) on a cold night. They served two minestrone soup without any pasta (the original Italian probably rolled in his/her grave) that tasted like it's been heated all day long. I'm not sure if it wasn't mixed with the leftovers of the peas soup... Then a very ordinary pasta with... More

This nice kosher dairy restaurant had only one branch (in town, on Tmarim Ave) - until last week, when a new branch opened near the King Solomon Hotel. Good pizza and other Italian offerings alongside the lagoon. Very new and clean; and very welcome. The original branch is more of a restaurant, while the new branch is more of a... More

The food is excellent and the service is very friendly and helpful. The owners take great pleasure is serving their guests with good food at reasonable prices. The bagels are top of the line.

Dined here for a second time at end of April 2013. On our previous visit on a cool winter evening we very much enjoyed the hot tasty soups. This time the weather was hot and soups were not on the menu. I chose the salmon steak which was cooked just right and with side dishes a made very satisfying and... More

We found the food very tasty and the service fine. The freshly baked bagels are extra-ordinary. The minestrone soup was delicious as was the pasta dish.
