Cena Molto Deliziosa at Pankina

//Cena Molto Deliziosa at Pankina

To celebrate the end of my finals and second year of University, my girl friends and I decided to have dinner at Pankina, a new Italian restaurant that opened in Tel Aviv.

It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten Italian food I got to admit. I do make pasta at home but I rather go to Asian and Japanese restaurants when I go out to dinner.

What to Get

Pankina is a restaurant located right in the center of Tel Aviv. There are a lot of seats outside with fans when it is boiling hot. The menu is diverse and has all of the Italian specialities. I really didn’t know what to order for 20 minutes. And that’s SO unlike me. I went with something super simple, penne with a rosée sauce. We got a caprese salad to share for starters and got risotto fried balls on the house!

It was all outstanding and the pasta were perfectly cooked. The only thing I think I need to criticize is the price. It was relatively expensive for what we took. I think because the place is Kosher but who knows! The salads were all in he 40 NIS, the appetizers ranged from 23 to 69 NIS. As for the pasta, it all depends on what you’re getting.

Anyways, it is definitely a place you should all go to if you are in the mood for some delicious Italian!

What’s everyone favourite kind of food? Italian? Chinese? Would love to know, xx

    Pankina looks wonderful. I’ve never hand made my own pasta before and I’m not sure why as I adore cooking and baking but it is nice to dine! I’m generally a very indecisive person so it’s likely that I would have felt the same! Penne with a rose sauce sounds fantastic! My hubby and I usually always split a salad! The risotto fried balls look mouth watering! I recently saw a show where they featured that on the food network channel and it made me want to make them ASAP!

    I don’t mind paying at all if the food is absolutely superb but I can be a bit of a food critic sometimes. tehe

    Seafood in general is my overall favorite. I also really love french food but it’s SO bad for you! I went on a Julia Child kick last year and gained ten pounds. whoops! Totally worth it though!

    I’m a huge sucker for Italian food and pasta in particular, but I do love myself a dose of really good risotto as well and I’d love to try the fried risotto balls as I’ve never had that before. Sounds like an amazing place in Tel Aviv! 🙂

    This place sounds and looked amazing!! I am drooling over all the pasta options and really trying not to order late night delivery. I love all types of food as long as they are delicious but my favorite types of cuisine is still Chinese.

    OMG girl I’m officially drooling!!! You know Italian is my favorite too and for some reason I don’t go out to that many Italian restaurants which is crazy!
    Looks like the perfect goodbye dinner 🙂
