Found this gem using the eLuna app, to find somewhere to eat near our rented apartment. Had a great meal. The staff were lovely.

This restaurant serves very fresh and very tasty food. What i most liked , was that the menu was somewhat different than most the other dairy restaurants in Jerusalem. The pasta is cooked perfectly and home-made and the sauces are not too creamy with plenty of fresh herbs and spices. The seared tuna salad was particularly good.

The pasta that I ordered was really tasty - I had salmon pappardelle with mascarpone cream. My friend's dish was also tasty - I think she had sweet potato ravioli. for dessert we took Tiramisu...

We just had a family celebration with 9 diners at this excellent eatery. Al Dente has been around for decades and somehow until now I've never made it to eat there. I can now say that I really missed out. The menu is quite extensive with Italian style dishes using only the best of fresh local ingredients. Being quite a... More

We recently tried this place after living down the street for a few years and LOVE it. Great atmosphere, creative and delicious food, beautiful handmade dishes. No complaints and can't wait to go back.

Its a little restaurant, we ordered few dishes, and had divided opinions...the arrabiata sauce was only OK, the other pastas were good but the pizza was AMAZING, probably the best i tried in israel so far. They didnt have enough waiters (only one when i was there), but she was very polite and with good sense of humor.

My daughter and I shared a lovely meal here. She had a calzone and rated it highly (and she knows her calzones). I had a huge and delicious salad. And then we shared an enormous piece of Al Dente's mascarpone cheesecake, which you owe it to yourself to try. Personally, I thought it was a lot of fun to be... More
