Our travel agent recommended this restaurant, it was a short walk from the David Citadel hotel. Cute little Italian restaurant, only a few tables, everything we ordered was excellent, service was great. Pastas and meats were delicious. Glad our travel agent sent us here!

This is a small, fine, family running restaurant in a center of Jerusalem. The restaurant is not Kosher and opened 7 days of the week. Nice menu with selection of beef, veal, chicken and fish. Helpful staff. All dishes are very good. Recommended warmly.

Celebrated our anniversary there. Fast service (the place is small and cozy!), relatively cheap, the meals are all authentic and gave me really nostalgic childhood feeling. Once again, the meals are VERY GOOD. Professional service and clean place. Highly recommended for romantic or business meetings.
