Sounds like a paradox, but Israel and Tel Aviv are famous for Italian cuisine. Here they cook pasta, pizza and antipasti as good as Italians do. Chefs in Shmone, which is located by Rabin Square, make their pasta on the spot. The place is tiny with an open kitchen, a bar counter and tables outside. Their food is super fresh and served on parchment paper by the chef Oren Goldwasser to keep the spirit of a street food joint with gourmet Italian cuisine.
