I ordered the chicken fettuccini, it was one of the better pastas I have had and I use to live and work with Italians. The place was very lively and friendly and reasonably priced. Will definitely return next time I'm in jeruselem!! Thank you

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel concierge. It was delicious! The focaccia was perfectly cooked, pasta dishes also good. Enjoyed a tasty cocktail, too! We arrived early on a Friday evening and even with no reservation they were able to accommodate our group of 8 before the dinner rush began. Highly recommend!

Having eaten here last year and enjoyed the experience I visited again with a friend. We had similar dishes - chicken liver - and they were just spot on. The service is very good and the meals were served without too much wait. Portions are large! The atmosphere is welcoming. Cannot fault this venue one bit!!!

Saturday lunch time- the place is overcrowded with families, couples, groups of friends. Although very crowded, the service is perfect: waiters are extremely attentive. The food is just great. We were happy and will visit agin very soon.
