“The real Italian experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you want to taste Italy in Tel Aviv - THIS IS THE PLACE!!
A small, private restaurant, owned and run by a native Roman offering the best Italian cuisine you can find. That includes different dishes of pasta: penne, ravioli, spaghetti with a variety of sauces.
Have just been there three couples and it was a real feast!
Strongly recommended!

It is really good! The food is tasty and the desserts are marvellous. I went for the first time and returned two more times, while in Tel Aviv (8 days).

“Excellent lasagne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Busy place yet you immediately feel that it is one of those family restaurants that you are going to enjoy. Although they have an extensive menu I settled for simple caprese salad followed by lasagne. Excellent preparation and tasted heavenly.\

Highly recommended.

“A "real" Italian Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We had a really good meal at this excellent Italian restaurant. The food was really tasty as was the service. You can eat in many "Italian" restaurants around the world but this was the real deal, authentic and very busy (always a good sign). Absolutely recommended.
