You can easily miss this small restaurant, but you should make an extra effort to find it....it's soooo good!
On our last visit we shared a dish of artichoke & lemon ravioli that was excellent (!), for desert we had cherry and litchi soup...itself were so so sorry when it was finished.
Wonderful!!!!!

A bit pricey if fish is what you seek for, but the hand made pasta and pizza are top notch too. The Chef learned the traditions of Jewish- Italian cooking in Rome, and brought them back with a few touches of his own. The Gnocchi alla Romana are amazing, but honestly, whatever you`ll get will probably be superb. Location too is a plus (in the Shuk), and Topolino is perfect for a romantic date. Must book because the place is tiny and popular.

This place is delightful. Lovely family run - the owner remembers me every time I visit from London. The pizzas are amazing, the simple Margherita is my favourite. The pasta is great as the ingredients are sourced from the nearby Souk. Great food, great service.

Frequenting Topolino (Italian for Mickey Mouse) for the past few years since it opened, it never ever fails (and usually full!). All departments offer original dishes made from top quality ingredients, some of which are purely Italian, some a superb fusion of oriental and Italian. Don't be misled by the name, this is a full-fledged restaurant and reasonably priced at that. The location is an added value as the nearby Mahne Yehuda market is lively and ever-changing, and sees its best times in recent years.

This restaurant on Agrippa’s is a delicious haven from the hustle and bustle of nearby Machane Yehuda market.( The Shuk) .
Its small and cozy, with an varied dairy menu, Their range of pastas and pizzas is good but their fish is out of this world cooked to perfection, worth the price for that extra special lunch.
The waitresses always are helpful and the food fresh tasting using the freshest ingredients.
Service is quick efficient, and unobtrusive, This is a place for people who take lunch seriously , as they leisurely eat and chat while the owner will come and enquire after her regulars with genuine interest, as they sip the incredible Italian coffee at the end of their meal .
I have not been there in the evening but understand from friends that have that it is worth making a reservation. I have however slipped in to this delightful unpretentious restaurant quite a few lunch times with friends or as a secret guilty pleasure on my own and have never ever been disappointed by the quality or the flexibility of the restaurant to cater for special diets, I love the food, the coffee, plus I adore the opportunity to "people watch" as the world bustles by the door.
