In the last few weeks, the popular Cafe Landwer chain has launched a new Italian and dessert menu in more than 50 of its branches throughout the country, both kosher and non-kosher.

After sitting down at one of the outside tables at the popular Landwer cafe located on Tel Aviv’s bustling Ibn Gvirol Street, we carefully perused the new Italian menu which includes 24 new dishes, including fresh gnocchi and ravioli in a variety of fillings, fresh pastas made from 100% durum wheat and brick-oven pizzas baked on-premises.

My dining partner and I began our culinary journey with the “crazy” pizza (NIS 54) which is made up of hot green peppers, coriander, tomato sauce, mozzarella and hot sauce. Based on the description, this pizza could’ve ended up really good, or really bad, and I’m glad it was the former! We were all surprised by how great this pizza was, and how the combination of ingredients worked really well together.

Next up was bolognese pasta (NIS 61) with root vegetables, red wine, herbs and tomatoes. The pasta was perfect, al dente and served with a sauce that was bursting with luscious tomato flavor. I often find that a lot of restaurants skimp on the meat however this dish included a generous portion of tender ground beef.

This was followed by the sweet potato and chestnut gnocchi (NIS 59). The gnocchi were soft little pillows that just melted in my mouth, with big, flavorful chunks of sweet potato and chestnuts with a wonderful consistency.

After a bit of a breather, we perused the new dessert menu which includes such decadent items as Belgium waffle, apple pie and creamy baked cheese cake. We decided to satisfy our sweet tooth by ordering chocolate madness (NIS 45) which consists of rich warm chocolate cake served with chocolate brownie ice cream topped with crunchy bits of Oreo cookies and chocolate sauce. This is a chocolate lover’s delight! Overall, it seems that Cafe Landwer is constantly seeking new ways to satisfy their customers with an ever evolving food menu that continues to surprise.
