“good but not excellent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

I have been twice in this retaurant with some european friends.
The first visit was good the 2nd less.
normally, i like the italian food, but this time, in spite the italian names, the dishes have local flavor, may be because the local spices.
the service is good and helpful but not profesional. Just as example, we had to ask for parmezan cheese or balsamic vinegar. In a good Italian restaurant it is an integral part of the table arrangement.
prices are reasonable

“Rather disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

I was told that this is one of the best Italian restaurants in Tel Aviv (which I had never heard of before), and since Italian food is my favorite I decided to give it a shot. I also peaked here on Tripadvisor and saw the high ratings, so i was sure this was going to be a sure winner. I was also told that sometimes you need to make reservations two weeks in advance (for the weekends) if you want to get in. So my expectations were obviously very high. Alas, they were not fulfilled.
The menu, when you read it, looks very promising, But the proof of the pudding is in the eating, so if you want to know how this cliche panned out, continue reading...
At best, this could be called a run-of-the-mill Italian place [circa 1970-1980's], where portions count more than taste, and indeed the portions were generous. However, the salmon risotto that i had could best be described as bland. The dishes my two other friends had were gnocchi Zia Fiorella and Past Zia Pallino were which were also generous but prepared with a heavy, unrefined hand. All three of us left half the portions in the plate. "No thanks, We don't want to have it wrapped to go"....
The staff was very friendly....
If you're looking for a good Italian place in Tel Aviv, there are many that easily surpass it...I'm not sure I'm allowed to say which they are, but look around...
