I have been living in Jerusalem all my life, and by far, this is the best restaurant in the city. As always, the food was great, prices not cheap but nevertheless fair, service perfect.

The food is average, italian, and its not kosher, the prices are high, and the place is really small. We had reservations for 9;30pm, we arrived at 9;15, and had to wait in the street, until the table was ready, 9;45, they don't have space to seat or a bar to wait until the table is ready.

Very good Italian restaurant, hidden away from the main tourists routs but still located in the very heart of Jerusalem in an old building. The place itself is very small 6-7 tables, the atmosphere is calm, quiet and friendly. The service is fast and professional and the food superb.

There are many restaurants in Jerusalem, but many of the good, non-kosher, ones are load. This is the perfect spot for a quiet, romantic dinner. A short walk from Mamila & the city center. Delicious, and very good service.

The food is eatable, but nothing to die for. Decoration is nothing remarkable. The waiter is very kind, but when the bill comes, it has 12% added as tip. It is NOT usual in Israel to have the tip added in a restaurant like this, and if it were it would not exceed 10%. According to the waiter, the owner... More
