Location- a little hidden on a side street in the city center, but easy to find. Atmosphere- simple, clean, comfortable. Service- outstanding. Friendly, professional, helpful, quick. Food- wide selection with several Sardinian dishes. I had the fragola pasta with clams and a mixed salad. Both were very good and of a very high value for money. Drinks- nice selection with... More

I came here after seeing such great reviews on Tripadvisor. To cut to the chase, I wasn't disappointed! When first arriving I didn't think much of the decor however the service was lovely, the staff were very nice indeed! The food was the highlight of course! Absolutely lovely! I will definitely be back.

First impression on entering was the basic furniture. Having now eaten there, I would assume that they have invested all of their resources in the menu and service. The menu was very inviting with a variety of different dishes, not to mention the excellent specials. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive without being obtrusive. It seemed to be very...

Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings, great menu and special selections cooked with fresh ingredients make Pani's one of the best places to go for food in Newcastle. Very reasonably priced too.

Where to start with this place, everything is just fantastic. I have been several times and always had incredible, speedy and friendly service. The atmosphere is buzzing and the hard working staff are enthusiastic and fun to chat with. I have only ever visited at lunch times or a week day evening but it's always busy. The menu is great...

I had one of my worst meals here. Lovely staff very friendly but the food was not up to scratch! Tiger prawns were small shrimps on plate. The lasagne was over salted and the chicken was dried slices rather than a fresh fillet. Would not go there again.
