The Neighbourhood

Nachalat Shiva was the 3rdย to be built outside the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City in the 2ndย half of the 19th century. The initiative came from friends from seven old yishuv families. Their efforts paved the way for other new neighborhoods which expanded the Jewish presence outside the walls. The result of that is the Jerusalem we know today

The Restaurant

Around the magical Music Square, inside one of the historic stone buildings is situated Piccolino Restaurant –ย Italian Glatt Kosher, uniquely designed, combining ancient Jerusalem stone, graceful arches and comfortable furnishings. ย Piccolino offers a menu that combines tradition and innovation. Besides breakfast, lunch and dinner, Piccolino offers events in private spacious rooms

The Family

Mrs. Nava Bibi, an experienced hotelier, well-known to Jerusalemites for her restaurant โ€œLittle Jerusalem at The Ticho House,โ€ her daughters, Anat and Orit, together with son-in-law, Ronnie manage the family business. Nava says: “When we established Piccolino, we had in mind a warm Jerusalem atmosphere, family-oriented with generous, joyful and courteous service

The Menu

Piccolinoโ€™s Menu combines Italian simplicity and uncompromising quality. In Piccolino we use only fresh ingredients. Inside Piccolino are the irresistible aromas of freshly baked Italian pastries, suggesting that a hundred years ago the building may have been Nachalat Shivaโ€™s local bakery
