This is my husbands and my favourite restaurant. The food is always excellent, how they manage to provide such great food and service time after time is beyond me. The staff are unfailingly cheerful and offer fantastic service. If you are going to the theatre or cinema and tell them they will serve you so that you will arrive at... More

Love this restaurant. Always lively with a fantastic buzz, you could almost imagine you were actually in Sardinia. The staff are friendly, efficient and very enthusiastic and the food is never disappointing and always flavoursome. If you want a quick meal before a night out or to spend quality time with a significant other Panis will not disappoint.

This is my second visit to the restaurant and I agree with other reviewers that the food and service are very good. It is run by an Italian family I believe and the food is authentic Italian. The menu is not extensive but the quality of food served is great. I must thank staff for finding us a table on... More

Quite a nice restaurant, nicely decorated, handy location and seems to be quite popular (although it is peak Christmas party season). Pretty unusual menu with no pizzas for an Italian, but there was an interesting choice of dishes. I had a bruschetta Panis starter (topped with olives and pecorino cheese. It was nothing special sadly. A little dry, For main... More

The menu does not change often but is full of real Italian food not avaiable else where - squid ink pasta, lobster ravioli and fregola to name but a few and the specials constantly change offering new and fresh choices.

Forget the recent TV 'Italian' eating places sprouting up nearby. For an authentic experience of Italian family restaurant service go a few yards of the main drag down high bridge and into Pani's. Still the best all round italian dining experience in Newcastle Centre. Informal, friendly, individual service and consitently good food at a fair price. Been coming here for... More

Visited Panis for the third time yesterday with 5 friends. Service is really excellent as before, but the main reason I introduced my friends was for the FISH SOUP, absolutely delicious and a must when visiting. Everyone was more than pleased and the the cost including drinks was about £20/head Can't wait to return.

I visited this place on a Friday night. I can't talk much about the decor and ambiance as there was non. All the floor is covered with light color wood and the decoration is almost non existence. However, although it was a very busy night, I was very pleased with the service. The staff were friendly and attentive. The service... More
