In Italian cuisine, the products speak for themselves. Simple, good ingredients are needed to create the classic dishes we know and love. Here’s our guide to some of the best Italian restaurants in Tel Aviv.
Philippe Pizzeria serves gourmet pizza. The pizza menu has two dozen pizzas, which are topped with different ingredients, ranging from varied vegetarian options and cheeses to pork, beef, mutton, goose and fish, including salmon. They strongly recommend accompanying their brilliant pizza with one of their wines, with a type to compliment every pizza on offer.
Pappa’s offers delicious pastas and pizzas. Some of the best dishes on their menu are the campanelli pasta, the Bolognese and the linguini del mara, which are all wonderfully filling. The pizza with pepperoni and cheese is superb.

Bindella was brought over to Tel Aviv from Switzerland where the Bindella restaurants are extremely popular. The restaurant’s large room is modern, stylish and the wooden beams that decorate the ceiling add a beautiful touch. The Italian dishes are excellent, fresh, and fairly priced – try the cauliflower salad to start.
Fresh ingredients are the starting point of every item on the menu and are used to createa variety of popular dishes. Italkiya also serves great drinks to round off any meal: try the local apple cider straight from the Galil.
