One of the stalwart veterans of the Jerusalem Italian scene and for many years, a dairy restaurant, Little Italy recently underwent a change of ownership and reopened as a meat restaurant under the management of Yossi Baruch of the Adom Group, the group behind Jerusalem restaurants Adom, Lavan and Colony. The restaurant now boasts a full meat menu designed by head chef Daniel Oman (previously head chef at Adom), with a new kitchen that churns out Italian-Mediterranean style meat fare including foccacias, pastas, and quality beaf, using only the finest, freshest ingredients, in addition to a rich menu of fine wines from both Israel and abroad.
The new menu allows diners to customize their orders: customers can choose between a large or small portion and even mix and match a number of small items from the menu; they can opt for a light snack at the bar or a full sit down meal.
Among the dishes on the menu are the following:
Artichoke ravioli in olive oil, capers, raisins, and tomatoes (26/45 NIS)
Arnacini Nablusi - risotto balls filled with meat (26/45)
Ceviche over focaccia (48 NIS)
Lamb pizza with pumpkin and rosemary (58 NIS)
Lamb ragu over wild rice (47/88)
Roasted entrecote in red wine sauce (82/132 NIS)
And for dessert:
Canoli filled with pear and pistachio (36)
Polenta cake (36)
On Fridays, an Italian food market will take place at the restaurant offering home-style take out and special Italian delicacies.
