“My favourite (price versus quality)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years. It has a simple small Italian/ Mediterranean menu (paste, meat, fish) but everything I have tried has always been excellent.

The staff are exceptionally friendly and the atmosphere is very good. It is easy and comfortable for a single business traveller to enter on your own for dinner, you are made to feel very welcome. There is a also a bar area to eat which is less formal if you are alone.

My favourite is a simple mixed salad to start and then seafood marinara as the main. I doubt you will be able to manage desert, but the few times I have tried they have been excellent.

Better restaurants in Tel Aviv but this is a really good balance of price, quality and atmosphere.

“Funny italian experience in Tel Aviv”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I was in Tel Aviv on saturday night, and most of the restaurants close to the hotel were closed.
I was adviced to go to this italian restaurant (something I usually don't do when abroad) and have found no alternatives.
I was surprised by the quality of their pasta (huge portion) and had a good experience with a local wine. Recommended if you need italian food... :-)

“Excellent creative, all-mediterranean cooking with italian background.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is the best restaurant we dined at in Israel.
Creative kitchen with some italian background but moving forward towards all-mediterranean fusion. It is immediately evident that passion for food and cooking, and for hosting, is the spirit of the place. Very easy to find being located close to the Sheraton almost on the seafront.
Elegant but relaxed, tasteful interior design and decor, very kind staff, and an extremely interesting carte and wine list. Prices of same level as those of far less appealing places! Try it and you will most probably go back. Unfortunately we discovered it only the night before leaving.
Absolutely not to be missed!

“Recommended! A rare find in Tel Aviv not the usual rubbish service, quality of meat and cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Having lived in Tel Aviv for over two years, this is the only restaurant I would actually write a review for. Good pleasant service and food, yes in Tel Aviv!!:) We arrive, we sit, we get drinks ordered straight away and all in minutes, every time we go!!! How is this possible in Tel Aviv:) Very good quality food, the lamb and the veal are lovely (Should have asked where they source the meat) Been several times and still being disappointed elsewhere.... This place should be far higher rated. Only downside they have an American flag next to English on the menu, but I will overlook that.
