A unique and somewhat hidden a block away from the main events of Rothschild st.
The server Oran, very young and very attentive to any and all of our requests and questions.he new the foods and the menu every well and made excellent recommendations. Food selection and preparation outstanding and prices reasonable.the chocolate cake... To die for and Oran even served each of us (7 in all) a shot of dessert wine.
In short, the service by Oran and his support tea was amazing, the food was great and at the end they exceeded our expectations.
A great place for dinner c. B g

Whether you ask for the service - This restaurant is awesome.
Ate there lately the Risotto and it was one of the best Risottos I ever had.
The service was with a waiter called Naama, and she was absolutely the best waiter I ever met - smile, service and the kindness was more than excellent.
The Tiramisu and the Carpaccio were very very delicious,
and the coffee in the end of the meal just made the sense that even the water in this place can be awesome... ;-)

One of my favorite restaurants here in Tel aviv.

Arrived without a reservation and was happy to be seated at the bar at 8pm on a weeknight. We watched the chef drop pre-measured protien from plastic bags into frying pans, douse them with oil and garlic, then add pre-cooked pasta to the pan. By the end of the night, the grease smog had compleyely covered my clothes and skin.

The service was atrocious. We ordered a botle of wine, a salad to share and 2 entrees. The wine was delivered in a few minutes, then one entree. When we asked about the salad, the server looked shocked. 15 minutes later, he arrived with the salad. WHen we asked about the other entree, he said he didn't remember us oredering a second entree. Simply atrocious service.

The food itself was pretty poor. WAY too much garlic...I brushed my teeth a dozen times in the next 24 hours trying to emerge from the garlic bath.

Skip Rustico.

The pizzas are great, the other options not so much. Its nice to sit there with friends for lunch, but don't expect something special, its another standard italian restaurant.
