Place clean and excellent Italian food, careful no meat is served, everything with vegetables. Reasonable pricing and good wine. Friendly service as well.

This should have been a good Kosher Italian dairy restaurant. Sadly, every other time I've eaten here 'something' has been off: this time my so-called 'aldante' spaghetti was tasty but too tough to chew and the service spotty despite several servers present. I'll probably try again next year... but I really wish they'd clean up their act!

This restaurant is not in the main tourist area but it is worth a visit. The staff were helpful and pleasant and the food was tasty. We shared a tuna salad which was fresh and very large, and we had a very refreshing fruit shake. Great value and a lovely visit

We were told that this place has good food and off the main hotel areas. Indeed, it is in a regular Eilat neighborhood and does lots of deliveries. The food was very good, service was pleasant, seemed like the waiters actually wanted to please their customers. Two soups (came with bagels) and two pasta dishes was enough for a family... More

Excellent service. Food tasty. The wife and I both opted for the Israeli breakfast which came with orange juice and coffee and cost 42 NIS each. Nice fresh bagel with it which was an absolute treat. If you are in the main area of the town this is well worth a short walk up the hill.
