Al Dente

Kosher, Dairy

Located just a few minutes from city center but set back away from the hustle and bustle, Al Dente is a local favorite. A bit nicer than your average cafe, complete with a great wine selection, tons of gluten free options, and delicious desserts- Al Dente makes for the perfect date night or celebratory dinner.

Prices range from 30- 129 shekel depending on what you order. Pastas are priced pretty similar to other comparable Italian restaurants in Jerusalem at about 60 shekel.

Gluten Free Options:
Penne Pasta
Eggplant Parmesan
Beet Carpaccio

When we went, the service was slow so don’t go when you’re in a rush and don’t be afraid to be super “Israeli” and force the waiter to pay attention to you. They messed up our order the first time and though it took a while to get someone to our table to tell them, once we told them they fixed it right away.

The gnocchi with Tagliatelle Verde sauce was incredible and I will definitely go back for that dish again.
