I should start by explaining how this works, since it was initially confusing and not explained right away. If you show up at 6:30 pm, you purchase a drink, which ranges from 15 to 18 euro. That sounds outrageous, until you find out you also get an appetizer buffet with that. And the buffet is very good. There are enough... More

We had lunch there. The food was terrible, and quite expensive for what they offered. Although service was good, I wouldn't go back.

Very nice looking shop / cafe, but very snobbish service. We did not feel welcome. And very expensive too.

Fabulous bakery, from traditional breads to seasonal treats, pleasant food (good pizza, pasta, crepes, and much more), and goodies to take home, all in one place. The artistry of their baked goods (bread shaped like the Mouth of Truth or the Vatican!) are simply amazing, as are their sweeter offerings.

One of the 2 best pizzas in Rome! The eggplant pizza was amazing! Sweets and coffee great too! The crepes looked so yummy! Nice environment! A bit expensive though!

We went there for the evening buffet(you buy a drink and in the price there is the access to the buffet). Very nice atmosphere, tasty food and nice cocktails. It deserves to be tried if you are in the area.

Panels offers one of the best facilities in Rome to have a great breakfast in Rome. Zillion types of bread, great pastries, an effective bar... All what is necessary for a good breakfast . And you are in Via Merulana, a delightful street of Rome, right next to Roman gazebo. All right, everything seems perfect but their excellence is their... More

Wow what a place! A shop in the heart of Rome which is much more than just a simple bakery! Their "aperitivo" which starts around 6ish is the best "deal" anyone can get! For 12Euros you get an unlimited buffet of freshly prepared food and a drink which are simply delicious or a glass from their great selection of wine.... More

Having been in Rome for a few days we saw how popular this cafe was and decided to have lunch. My daughter and I had wonderful tortellini outside on the street area- lovely. I ordered a glass of wine and was shocked to pay 7 euros - my Italian is not good enough to argue and the assistant could not... More

Thankfully we found Panella just around the corner from our vacation rental. We stopped in often for breakfast before we headed out for the day - table service and take out - and were never disappointed. Brioche, mixed berry muffins, sweet pastries, we tried to sample them all! Cappuccino was our drink of choice and were made perfectly every time.... More
