New restaurants don’t open often in my neighbourhood, so I’m always eager to try them out when they do open. Panteli’s Italian Restaurant in Boskruin opened a few weeks ago at Summerfields shopping centre at the same time the revamped Pick ‘n Pay opened. There have been a few different pizza restaurants in this spot since I have lived in the area, but I think Panteli’s is the best one so far.
I ordered pizzas as take aways from a very enthusiastic waitress. After about 15 minutes they were ready, and I was also informed that they offer free delivery in the area.
The decor is much nicer than the old restaurant that used to be there, with splashes of bright yellow, wooden tables and a pizza oven as the focal point on the back wall.
The menu follows the tick what you want option that seems to be popular with so many restaurants nowadays, and they serve a variety of pizzas, pastas, burgers, ribs and wings.
The pizza combinations are very interesting, and I ended up ordering the Alberobello which had pulled pork, BBQ sauce, onions and sundried tomato, as well as the Toronello, a combo of chicken, bacon, onion and chilli. The pizzas bases are thin and crispy, and the toppings fresh and delicious. Just be warned that the chilli is quite hot (well at least for my tender tastebuds).
The restaurant offers free wifi and you can pay via Zapper if you wish to do so. Our takeaway pizzas came with small tubs of extra chilli, garlic and parmesan which I thought was pretty cool. Price wise, they are on par with other pizza places in the area, however they don’t seem to offer different sizes. Taste wise, they are delicious and I’m looking forward to my next meal there.
