We went with our three daughters (19, 15, 13). Great evening. Even though we were sited inside (the closed balcony is much better and happier place) the atmosphere and surrounding were great.

I had a surprisingly good Italian meal at Ernesto's. I was surprised because my experience with non-Mediterranean food in Tel Aviv is, at best, mixed. I'm occasional visitor, so maybe I've just been unlucky. In any case, I had a delicious crepe folded over ricotta cheese and spinach for an appetizer. Except for the bland tomato sauce, it was delicious.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious dinner with our family at Ernesto! The chicken with rosemary and lemon was perfect and delicious beef carpaccio. Oh gosh- I rarely eat dessert but could not pass up the espresso with vanilla ice cream and the Creme brûlée! The service was warm and friendly. We eat elfresco. All in all a great time and... More

Average food, high prices and rude wait staff who couldn't be bothered to place condiments on our table. Most disgusting, the waitress petted a dog on the street then served food! Avoid.

Went with colleagues for dinner. Excellent service with Italian accent! Try the lasagna or the gnocchi. Desert take anything...everything is fantastic.
