Very centrally located in Tel Aviv, this place offers a decent italian cuisine. The portions were average in size, the pizzas a little small to my taste. Attentive staff, good service. Pretty quiet ( not very common in Israel) perhaps because of the early hour (6 pm). Price wise - medium, perhaps a little higher.

I have been in the restaurant and had a Sicilian soup, and also tagliatelle bolongese. They weren't bad, however they were a bit too salty, and the pasta wasn't so good.

This is not my first time in this restaurant. Unfortunately, this time, I was disappointed.I visit with friends. My plate, pasta with mushrooms was ok. Two of my friends ordered calzone-nutela-mascarpone and that was terrible. They were not informed that the calzone is huge and can easily be enough for two and even three persons. And secondly, after you cut... More

I went there for dinner with my wife and two children. Service was excellant. We first had antipasti, which was very good. We had three steaks done perfectly well, very well prepared. The dessert was also wonderful. I will go there again.

Joya is a "default" location for Italian food which is more than just pizza. The restaurant location is convenient, prices are fair (but not low) and the quality of the food is good. The service is so/so and depends on the time you come in.

The food is OK, not more. The service was nice and attentive. It was pleasant sitting there outside with a beer and something to eat, after a movie.
