“Great food”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Great ambience, good food, good service. Our children loved the pizza and we returned on two occasions. It was during Passover, so we did not have that many choices. The salads were very fresh. Worth a try.

“Horrid Cheese.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Service was actually very good, contrary to what people say.

However that can't make up for mediocre food. The cheese ravioli sauce was passable but it was clearly not fresh.

The goose breast pizza had good meat but again the cheese wasn't fresh and it was very off putting.

Taste it and you will know for yourself. I'm a Yelp Elite who knows enough that a tripadvisor rating can't be trusted. A 4 average is equivalent to a 3 or even 2 on yelp.

“Great night at a great place”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We went on a Friday night. The atmosphere had a lot of energy as well as the people in the restaurant. The sweet potato ravioli as well as the home made pasta was fantastic. The service was great with very modest prices. Definitely recommend!

“Decent Food, Bad Server”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Poor service was the cause of our bad experience. The waiter spoke very little English. We had to point to our choices on the menu, which resulted in a completely incorrect order. He never apologized. He was inattentive and rude. He did not thank us for coming in when he brought us the bill; however, he did manage to bark (quite literally!) that service was not included. He then hovered over our table to check how much we left him. The food was good, but the service ruined the meal.

“large portions at modest prices in downtown Jerusalem”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Every Sunday I visit my old mom in jerusalem and take the opportunity to have lunch with friends. We love Focaccia Bar with its spacy yard and good food - especially their entrecote's and other salads, hamburger and delicious focaccias baked in their outdoor oven. We share their big salad dish. Prices are modest and the service attentive.
