When Ticho House in downtown Jerusalem closed for repairs, its popular restaurant had to shut its doors as well. Fortunately for regular customers, another venue became available almost immediately. The philanthropist who was transforming Kikar Nahman in Nahalat Shiva into Kikar Hamusika was looking for a classy restaurant to be part of his cultural complex. Enter Ticho House’s Nava Bibi and her new venture, Piccolino.
The new premises are impressive as is the spacious courtyard with room for 120 al fresco diners. Not many Jerusalem restaurants can accommodate this many customers outdoors so comfortably and serve them with as professional a bilingual wait staff.
A good way to start a meal at Piccolino is with one of the specialty cocktails, named after famous operas.
