- Cuisines: Italian
NileGuide Expert Says:
A real intimate Italian atmosphere.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Parking is difficult. Walking distance from most central jerusalem hotels.
The most superb, freshly made pasta in Jerusalem is served at this cozy kosher-mehadrin place run by Angelo, an immigrant from Rome. The ravioli and the gnocchi are elegantly tender, and there's cannelloni filled with ricotta and smoked salmon that I especially like. Angelo's sauces are truly alive with flavor and quality (I love his spicy fresh tomato sauce rich with tasty cherry tomatoes). If you arrange ahead of time, Angelo can sometimes prepare special Roman Jewish dishes. Meat is not served here, but there are a daily fresh fish special and a number of Italian dessert choices including pannecotta and tiramisu made fresh each day. Look for daily lunch deals.
