Jerusalem is known for being home to several well-known options for quality Italian dining, with pasta restaurants possibly outnumbering Middle Eastern restaurants in the capital. Located at the bottom of Hillel Street - just across from the Beit Agron building, the Time Elevator attraction and Independence Park - the Jerusalem branch of Spaghettim is a landmark on its own right. One of the first large-scale, high-concept non-kosher institutions to ever open up in the downtown area, it's frequented by the city's "in" crowd.

Founded in the early 1990s, Spaghettim is Israel's leading chain of Italian-style eateries. Spaghettim's restaurants offer deliveries, business lunch deals, chic design and lively evening scenes. The menu includes a staggering array of dishes in dedicated sections for bruscettas, salads, pizzas, mains and pasta concoctions.

It's the pasta dishes that gave the restaurant its name, though, and there are literally dozens of varieties on the menu, with sauce ingredient combinations covering the gamut from almonds and chicken livers with nutmeg in white wine (Fegatini Aglio Olio) to butter-sauteed sweet potato slices with garlic and basil in cream (Batata Dolce) to salmon and spinach in garlic butter and wine (Salmon Spinachi). Indeed, contemporary Italian cooking creativity is on showcase here, but classic fare is done well too, with timeless dishes like ricotta-filled ravioli, fettuccine Napolitana and spaghetti in bolognese sauce filling bellies and inspiring smiles as well.
