Called in without a booking on a very busy Friday night and they made room for us within 5 minutes before two very large parties arrived. Staff fabulous, quick service and fabulous authentic food.....not like the typical Italian restaurants elsewhere. Done and dusted within the hour and off to the cinema with a delicious taste still in your mouth. Love... More

I needed to meet a friend to chat and do some business. I hadn't been here for years even though it was a favourite so when my counterpart suggested it I jumped at the chance. No need for groupons etc you get great food at a great price. It's served quickly and efficiently in a clean buzzing environment. Meal over... More

Led by favourable reviews from friends on this site and a need for a nibble pre-Jimeoin at the New Tyne Theatre, we called in for tea at 17:45 9/10/14. It was quiet at that time but an hour later, it was chokka. No music in the background, it was soon evident that the hum / buzz of a full eatery... More

Great food, well priced and the only things I could fault this place on were us having to chase up a drinks order and... More

Found this place by chance, the service was impeccable and the food was absolutely stunning. The restaurant is very busy which i suppose is the result of its popularity, however the staff were very attentive to us. We had a couple of drinks and a 3 course meal and can not wait to return to Panis. Well recommended.

Situated on High Bridge it is easy to walk past this place without realising it is there. Also from the street you can only see the front quarter of the place, so just because that looks busy don't assume you won't get a seat, it is far bigger towards the back which you can't see from the street. It looks... More
