"Do we eat to live, or we live to eat" is a polemic which found militant partisans on both sides of the barricade. Ernesto, one of the best Italian restaurants in Tel Aviv offers answers for both parties. We enjoyed in previous occasions the fool...More

I loved the Italian staff. They were frantically busy and chattered among themselves in Italian (complete with exaggerated hand gestures and alarm). It was great!! I had the Carbonara and wife Bolognese. Both were superb. Wonderful house focaccia and bottle of Chianti. Would definitely return

We go to Ernesto's every time we come to Tel Aviv. The food is consistently good, the staff friendly and efficient. Not the cheapest restaurant, but worth the money

You can book even the same day, but especially for the weekend I suggest you to call some days in advance. (I used Google Translator) :-)
