The recently opened Pankina has quickly made a name for itself through word of mouth thanks to its central location in a calm street, perpendicular to the busy Dizengoff, the friendly, welcoming staff, pleasant setting, family-run vibe, and authentic Italian cuisine. The restaurant does not serve meat (cacherout oblige ), but a huge choice of Italian specialties including salads, fish, pasta, and risotto. The dishes are attractively presented with skillfully handled vegetables, enticing fish, and tempting mozzarella. Don’t miss the Carbonara di Mare with excellent pasta and a very good carbonara sauce. However, we would have liked a bit more fish. Absolutely go for the tiramisu, more authentic than the chocolate millefeuille, accompanied with a limoncello to conclude this delightful Italian interlude.
