Angelo is located on Horkanos Street, a quiet street off Heleni HaMalka. Horkanus runs parallel to Jaffa road, which is only a 2 minute walk away.

Angelo has a few tables outside for outdoor dining in good weather, and two floors within the restaurant. It has a warm and intimate atmosphere, with vivid, fresh colours evident in the decor and echoed in the table linen, and large framed pictures of various types of pasta placed along the walls. There is a pleasing attention to detail; little window boxes of plants are set along the upstairs balustrade, and the bathrooms are attractive and well-kept.

Angelo is owned and run by a recent immigrant from Rome, and his expertise is displayed to delicious effect in the menu. This is without a doubt the best Italian restaurant I have been to in Israel. The full range of dishes are on offer, with a large selection of antipasti, salads, soups, pasta, pizza and fish. This diner definitely recommends the focaccia Mediterranea, with its thin chewy crust topped with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and concia, which are zucchini strips sauteed in olive oil with a subtle tang of balsamic vinegar - divine! The pasta is truly delicious, obviously fresh and served al dente, with a wide variety of sauces and shapes. Try any ravioli dish; it comes filled with spinach, mushroom, salmon or the more unusual broccoli, with your choice of fresh sauces; tomato, olive oil, or cream based.

The dessert menu range is small but appropriate, with a choice of tiramisu, pannacotta or gelato and a couple of others. The tiramisu is delicious; fresh and creamy without being heavy, with a delicate hint of rum. There is a feeling here that the customer is an honoured guest. The waiters and waitresses are without exception polite and attentive; even sitting upstairs out of the way the service is nothing short of excellent. Any requests are happily fulfilled - if you want to switch round a sauce or pasta shape for a combination that is not on the menu, they'll be pleased to accommodate you. This is a genuine Italian dining experience, which is not to be missed.

The food, ambiance and service are all above par, and the cost is not too high; a main dish will cost you between 30 and 40 shekel, 65 for fish. You could easily enjoy a three-course meal with drinks for under 100 shekel (per person)

Business lunch from 12:00 noon till 4:00pm soup or salad including Focaccia and a choice of pasta NIS 39 or salmon steak NIS 49
