“i expected more”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

look, mel and michelle is good, no doubt, but for the price I expected more. I expected it to be more refined, more creative, just more. it was fine, but you can get the same quality at a bunch of other places on ben yehuda for like half the price. of the 4 dishes we had on the table, the best was the gnocchi with truffle cream,but once again, just not something very elevated from the same dish I would make at home...

“Best romantic restaurant in Tel Aviv”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

I dined there with my girlfriend. Very romantic place for special occasion. The food was fantastic and the service was good. The dishes are not cheap, but you get a nice size plate. I am sure I will come back to mel and micheal.

“The most romantic place in TLV,creative and delicious”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We return every year at least once-at special occasions (birthdays and so) and never get disappointed. Sit ONLY inside- it's like a different world from crazy Ben Yehuda street.
Although parking is indeed a nightmare- I would park on the moon in order to eat again the Parisian Gnocchi...
Prices are quite high but nothing special compare to other restaurants in town serving the similar level of food.
Lovely place!

“LOOOVE this place”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Love it!

It is hard to find a better Italian spot than this.

Everything on the menu is beyond delicious and flavorful.
The chefs can accommodate any food allergies- gluten free diets included.

I love the Gnocci and antipasi, the Apple Crostada is to die for, the Lemon Cookies are definitely a must-have here.

Service is amazing.

The food takes a while to come out but it is delicious and super hot.

The bar offers many different drinks to pick from!

The outside seating is lovely too it just gets a bit chilly in the evening.

Make sure to make reservations if you are coming for dinner because it gets very busy every day of the week pretty much.
