A real Italian (better, Sardinian, an Italian isle) restaurant. Staff competent and friendly. Fantastic seafood and very good wines.

Could not fault the reasonably priced food and excellent waiter. However, being followed into the street by one of the waitresses after leaving has put me off returning as she was querying if we had paid. We hadn't even seen / spoken to her during our time there. Couldn't understand why she was coming outside as we had passed the... More

Wonderful restaurant, amazing food. Friendly staff. The only downside was it was really noisy. It won't put us off going again though.

Pani's is a classic and a one of a kind. The buzz and atmosphere is worth a visit alone but the food is fresh, delicious and quick which makes it perfect for a business lunch. Anything from a Milanese sandwich to fresh pasta everything is great. The service is always ultra friendly and attentive. I would recommend Pani's to anyone... More

Went here with a whole troop of friends. We were very well fed. Great service, scrummy food. I had the aubergine parmigiana which was great. They have a good selection of wine, and some very reasonably priced, not horrible ones. Good for dining out on a student budget!

Panis is like the Tardis up the back lane opposite the Bacchus. Family run restaurant with excellent service (never seen so many attentive waiters). The food is typical Italian pastas and pizzas etc BUT they produce the most delicious fish soup I have ever tasted. It is worth a visit JUST FOR THE SOUP!! Ideal for a quick lunch or... More

A pal and I popped into Pani's after a lovely boozy afternoon for an antipasto, bruschetta and some olives. The welcome was friendly, the grub decent and the wine palatable but the loos were terrible. Dirty, dusty, mouldy ceilings spilling their spoils onto the cisterns. All in all not very nice. Sort it out Pani's.

Tried a couple of places to start with, but settled here, I had a brushetta bread and cheese starter , a tortellini main followed by the profiteroles pudding and to finish off, a coffee and grappa shot. All my food was lovely and although I am a fussy vegetarian, all the options on the menu were great as we're the... More
