Tasty tea.

Beautiful food, very tasty and wonderfully cooked pasta dishes, but could had been bigger portion sizes. Very tasty never the less. Staff were very polite and caring. Lovely overall experience.

Visited Panis last night with my wife. She had been before during the day but this was my first visit. Situated in High Bridge just off Grey St in central Newcastle, the entrance is unassuming and although the appearance is of a small restaurant once inside there is a large dining area. Decor is basic although loved the peculiar light... More

I visited this restaurant on 7 February 2015. Maybe I expected pizzas to be available and they were not so the evening didn't start off very well for me and maybe my choice of Fish Risotto was not the best. I couldn't find anything on the starter menu that I was familiar with and not being too adventurous I didn't... More

Visited on a Saturday evening, very busy/popular so had to pre-book a table. This restaurant is hidden away up a side street, very traditional interior and very friendly/welcoming staff. Meal was lovely, started was ok and we all had pasta for our mains. The pasta was very tasty, a bit different than most Italian restaurants, you can tell that it... More

If you are hungry and you want to eat some good food, try this place. Many different dishes for every ...gusto. Straight from italy, pasta, meat, salads....A nice place to spend your evening with friends. Friendly staff and cozy place. I would definitely recommend it.

Have eaten several times at Panis & found it good value for money with a good atmosphere & attentive staff. But not this week, food poor, cold & no flavour. Staff wouldn't take a photo of us when asked & we were charged for 5 tiny pieces of bread! Won't be going back,many more places to eat in Newcastle with... More

My boyfriend and I visit Pani's fairly regularly - every month or two. We will try to find any excuse to celebrate at Pani's. The staff are friendly and always make us laugh. The food is consistently excellent. I recommend the sardinian starter platter for two. The pasta and fish dishes are particularly good.

We had our wedding reception here in May 2014 and came back to celebrate Valentines. The staff were wonderfully firiendly and attended to all our needs. The atmosphere was lovely, intimate and romantic even though the staff were rushed off their feet. The food was as superb as always, I cannot recommend Panis highly enough. If you want excellent food,... More

We hadn't visited Panis for over a year though not through choice ,and were delighted to find it as good as ever. We popped in for lunch quite early but the staff as always were most accommodating. I started with a lovely bowl of real minestrone soup and my husband had a delicious fish soup then followed with the sausage... More

I'd been recommended this place by a friend, and had high hopes. On entering it appeared like something you'd find at universal studios...with large plastic figures on the wall (However I know lately it has changed). The food I ordered started out great, the starters are great, and authentically Sardinian. However the main tasted and looked like it had been... More
