Don’t throw pizzas in a glasshouse
On the corner of Brännkyrkegatan and Ringvägen, there’s a little cute greenhouse hidden behind the entrance to Zinkensdamm’s subway station. It belongs to Panevino, an Italian restaurant that provides a much needed Mediterranean touch to the neighborhood.
There’s an Italian saying that goes: ”Chi mangiasulos’affoga”, which translates to ”He who eats alone suffocates”. Great food is meant to be shared, so bring someone you really care about to Panevino. This area of Södermalm is usually not known for its great cuisine. It’s more the destination for people going to see Hammarby play bandy at Zinkensdamm arena or (read and) drink cheap beer at one of the many pubs in the neighborhood.
The concept of Panevino is not unique. It is as Italian as you expect an Italian restaurant to be, with creamy plates of pasta, wood-fired pizzas, and a risotto the size of a steering wheel. The thing that makes it special is the atmosphere, especially in the summer. Maybe we’ve just been lucky, but they’ve managed to get us a table even though the place’s been crowded every time. Choose between the nice bistro, the outdoor area or in the piazza—the greenhouse decorated with wooden floors and wines, palm trees and other plants. It’s open all year round and can be booked for larger parties.
Since we’re going to Sicily this summer, we couldn’t be happier to have this little piece of Italy around the corner so that we could practice our pasta-eating skills. And practice makes perfect.
A meter of pizza!
If you’re a group, or just really really hungry, you can order a meter of pizza! From personal experience, you should be three to four people, not two (just trust us on this). And ask for the creamy parmesan starter! It’s like an ice cream cone filled with nice Italian cream cheese. It’s soo good!
