“Nice little cosy Italian in TLV”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We had dinner here on our last evening after an amazing holiday in Israel. We bumped into the restaurant by pure luck and had such a nice evening. The food (we had pasta, pizza and dessert and some wine) was very, very nice - not only for Israel standard (the majority of Italian food I have had in london, copenhagen or indeed in Italy has not been close to this level).

“horrible experience”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

the food was over prices but only ok in taste.. really nothing special...

then, we ordered a panna cotta for dessert (since I really cant resist one) and it was just cream soup... nothing that even resembles the real thing!! we immediately sent it back..

after arguing with us that this is the way they make it - they continued to insist to charge us for it!!

all in all. a very poor experience! will never go back there!

“molto meglio!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Every time we come to Tel Aviv, we try to eat at Piccola Pasta. It is just the very best Italian restaurant, anywhere! We started off with a nice Brunello wine along with a roasted egglant dish as an appetizer. We also ordered garlic bread because it just tastes so good! I ordered the piccola pasta dish, which is sauteed red peppers, garlic, and olive oil over pasta. My husband ordered the mushroom/anchovy/garlic sauce over linguine. We switched plates half way through so we could both savor the flavors of each dish. Positively wonderful.
You must make reservations or you will be disappointed. There are only 7 tables in this small restaurant, with some seating upstairs. You can call ahead of time, leave a message, and the staff will return your call.
Mangiare!

“Excellent choice”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Walked by and saw this small restaurant. The appetizer of roasted garlic and crostini was fabulous. Pasta was very fresh and tasty. Great wine choice. Sat upstairs at bar and had great service and will definitely return.
