“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Walked by and saw this small restaurant. The appetizer of roasted garlic and crostini was fabulous. Pasta was very fresh and tasty. Great wine choice. Sat upstairs at bar and had great service and will definitely return.

“Excellent pasta in Tel Aviv”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

we arrived late on thursday night with no reservation and luckily ther was 1 free table at this small restaurant......we had excellent salads& Bread and the real surprises were just as good tating pastas.. we were 4 very impressed diners and vowed to return for more great pastas......the only complain was a very flat red house wine (it was planned to be a Chianti in it's better young days), but otherwise ...this is the place to go for pastas the way the should be!!

“My favorite restaurant in Tel Aviv”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I live this place. I had been here a few times before this trip, but managed to squeeze two dinners in three days here. The crostini is amazing as a starter- such fresh tomatoes, basil, and garlic. The pesto is wonderful, and the wine list is extensive- both Israeli and Italian wines. My server helped me to pick out a great one. This is my favorite restaurant in Tel Aviv, and perhaps the world!

“Delicious fresh food, Select wines, and affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We passed Piccola Pasta taking a walk from our hotel nearby. We checked the menu and returned for dinner. The food is fresh and plentiful portions. There is an ample wine selection to compliment the meal. We tried the homemade Lemoncello and it was the best i've ever had.
We liked it so much, we returned a few nights later with friends. They liked it so much, they vowed to return as well. As a party of 6, we sat upstairs on the couches. I was uneasy at the though, but was assured when making the reservation it woudl be fine. Indeed it was. The tables were the right height for the couches and we were extremely comfortable and cozy.
I wanted a pasta dish, but was dying to try the pizza (it smelled so good), so we got one as an appetizer and it was some of the best pizza i've every had.
After walking everyone back to the hotel, we returned for a nightcap and more lemoncello.
There are two deserts, panna cotta and tiramasu. I have yet to have room for desert after the meal, but our friends split a tiramasu and said it was amazing.
Best of all, the meal was not terribly expensive, and a real bargain for the amount and quality. I suggest making a reservtion as it is small and cozy - they open at 6pm.
If in Tel Aviv again, we will definitely eat here.
