We Just had two great pizzas, the sauce is very Good and the staff is great, the are very kind and helpful and very fun too. I highly recomendo this place. And it's open on shabbat which is a big plus for foreign visitors.

Totally unexpected but there you go. Just like the ubiquitous hamburger, the pizza is running a close second. Perfect if you're hankering for a quick slice with both Italian and Middle Eastern flavors on the fence.

Decent, by-the-slice pizza. Friendly staff. Open on Shabbat. Across the street from the Gloria Hotel, and next to Jaffa Gate.

Small place, but kindly people and fresh food. A great place to have a shaded lunch after a great tour of the Old City

It is a convenient place, because of its location near Jaffa Gate. This is about where the positive aspects end. The pizza is tasteless, on the expensive side, the salad without olive oil dressing.

Terrible service combined with food which can be classified as "under average". Prices are high but in line with the neighborhood...

Small, neat and clean venue with hot internet, Jacob serves pizza by the slice or whole pie; salads are large and Mediterranean and prices are reasonable.

George the owner was so friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed our meal and felt like we had made a new friend by the time we left. Great location near the citadel.
