Cozy but expensive

I love this place even though it's really expensive. It's a tiny restaurant with a cozy feeling, the prices are pretty high. The food is great and the wine is also amazing.

I liked the creative combinations available on the menu, very vegetarian friendly, but the food was far too oily. The service was good.

The restaurant itself is underrated and small... hence Piccola, and I was taking my kids for a pasta meal before we popped out with friends... Nothing on the menu jumped out a children friendly, but the patron and chef was so helpful... he created two delicious plates of perfectly cooked linguine pomodoro, very authentic.. with garlic bread... and he even...

The pasta with hearts of palm, artichoke and asparagus is the best pasta dish I know. other than that I eat there all the time, great food, great wine and great service! If there is room go upstairs and sit at the bar for some wonderful ambiance.

I've been to Piccola Pasta several times and have decided to write another review. I have never had a bad evening at Piccola Pasta. The restaurant is relatively small and it is best to place a reservation. The size gives the restaurant a very pleasant and personal atmosphere. Service is good and always friendly. Food is prepared fresh and by... More

The place is charming and intimate, and has a large wine selection. The staff was polite and on point. The food arrived quickly, however it wasn't anything special that I can't make at home.

That was one of the worst Italians I tasted in a long time. I had a really bad experience. I'm sorry, it might be a matter of personal taste, but we found the pasta here not only boring, but also soggy, amateurish, ordinary, ,almost a supermarket league, like it came out of a packet. Tel Aviv has much to offer... More

The owner is there for taking care of you. Small, charming restaurant with attentive service to all your needs. The food was delicious. They have a very wide range of pasta and pizza toppings, special wide selection of grappa drinks. We also took appetizers and enjoyed them slowly. Don't forget to reserve.

Visited the restaurant during my visit to Israel. Food is OK (nothing to write home about), but the owners was rude and the staff unprofessional. Won't go there again.
