One of the best restaurants in Israel for atmosphere and runner up in the 'Best Italian' stakes.
Big, open room with lots of pictures on the walls and those omnipresent red check table clothes. Open kitchen is at the far end of the restaurant with a roaring pizza oven, creating an ever warm ambience. Extensive menu, good wine list and friendly staff all contribute to a great evening.
And it just gest better and better value for money - lunch deal is main course and get starter free (great antipasti laid out on the buffet table) - bowl of pasta and the free starter could set you back less than $15. Also on the menu, and something I had never seen before, was the 3 people pasta for approx $30/$40. Order one large bowl that serves 3 people (obviously the same pasta) - what a great way of a family eating out (probably enough for 2 adults and 2 kids).
It's been here for years (I first went there back in 1995!) so it's a good sign.
Favorite Dish: Pasta dishes are inventive and very good: meat and fish dishes excellent.
The restaurant is a romantic italian restaurant in a quiet place near The Suzan Dalal Center in Tel Aviv (Neve Tzedek) , great food , not expensive for that kind of restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I love the pasta with 4 types of cheese.
The Tiramisu for desert is great also.
The bread they serve in the begining of the meal is very good.
This place thinks it knows Italian food, but unfortunately, it doesn't. The location is great, int the heart of the Susan Dalal center, lovely and romantic all year around. However, the food is a disappointment. A lot of restaurants just don't have the touch. After visiting Italy - and the heart of Tuscany - there is no way you can mistake good pasta and its imitation.
I whole heartedly recommend going to "Pasta Mia" on 10 Wilson Street in Tel Aviv. Amazing lasagna, great pasta and rich, hearty and homemade sauces (and romantic too). Definitely much better.
Favorite Dish: The food lacks the passion so its hard to recommend. Salads are always an option, right?
