“Great place”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

It was really a great place, one of the best i've ever found. Food is tasty - we tried about ten dishes during our stay in Jerusalem, everyone was great. Music is nice, and together with voices of happily chatting and laughing people creates festival atmospere.
There were always lots of people inside, and we got like one of two or three free tables left.
It works on shabbat.
They say on foursquare that service is horribly slow, but it was ok for us.
Meals are very filling, so twice I ordered more than could eat, and leftovers were a good breakfast the day after.
I found Weihenstephan beer here, and now it's my favorite beer.
Also it's quite cheap place for Jerusalem. We tried some doleful chinese restraunt, and it happened to be more expensive.

“Great food”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Great ambience, good food, good service. Our children loved the pizza and we returned on two occasions. It was during Passover, so we did not have that many choices. The salads were very fresh. Worth a try.

“Horrid Cheese.”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Service was actually very good, contrary to what people say.

However that can't make up for mediocre food. The cheese ravioli sauce was passable but it was clearly not fresh.

The goose breast pizza had good meat but again the cheese wasn't fresh and it was very off putting.

Taste it and you will know for yourself. I'm a Yelp Elite who knows enough that a tripadvisor rating can't be trusted. A 4 average is equivalent to a 3 or even 2 on yelp.

“Great night at a great place”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We went on a Friday night. The atmosphere had a lot of energy as well as the people in the restaurant. The sweet potato ravioli as well as the home made pasta was fantastic. The service was great with very modest prices. Definitely recommend!

“Decent Food, Bad Server”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Poor service was the cause of our bad experience. The waiter spoke very little English. We had to point to our choices on the menu, which resulted in a completely incorrect order. He never apologized. He was inattentive and rude. He did not thank us for coming in when he brought us the bill; however, he did manage to bark (quite literally!) that service was not included. He then hovered over our table to check how much we left him. The food was good, but the service ruined the meal.
