The restaurant is located in an unattractive part of town, so I wouldn't recommend it to visitors passing through Tel Aviv. The food was quite good, certainly not gourmet but quite honest, at least it respects the basics of Italian cuisine (which most of self-proclaimed Italian restaurants don't). They even have a certificate of the Italian Chamber of Commerce as "Ambassadors of food"- which to my knowledge only a total of 9 restaurants have in Tel Aviv. Desserts were also good, although overpriced (starting at NIS 40). For a simple Italian meal, it is not disappointing. It does not offer pizza, but mainly pasta, meat and fish dishes.

Great food, variety of food and good service. The sea food is fresh, the chicken liver in balsamic vinegar was delicious and the desert - naktarina pie was so big and delicious. You have to make reservation because the place is full.

nice but very expensive.

food is not as authentic as it claims to be.

service with an attitude and a long list of who's and who's makes this a very trendy place.

Spent a evening celebrating however the service ,food and especially the price where most disappointing. Not recommended for anyone wishing to enjoy themselves
To the restaurant management I think that a price of your fish should be printed even if you give it in shekels per gram!!
A very average fish in size and taste =140 shekels quite a catch!!

Although prices are on the upper side of the scale, this is one of the best places to dine in.
Food is always perfect, ingredients in use are the best.
Even the hose cocktails are very good.
A grate place for lunch, Dinner or post-work snaks
