We sat on the patio and had pizza. Very nice but if you're at the street, young boys come begging. The pizza and service were very good - good enough that we went back a 2nd time.

The place is dirty and grimy....ughhhh, Really, I don't see how this place is popular...maybe because the people who patronize it are dirty and grimy themselves?

We went here with a large group for pizzas. The pizzas were pretty good. They had a good variety of choices available. The live music was very good, but a little loud because the place is so small. Definitely worth a visit though! Fun atmosphere for a night out.

This is a great spot to hear some live music and have a few beers. The pizza was ok but the atmosphere was great.

While i did not have their delicious pizza this time, we went for an after dinner drink and to hear the live music. I love the vibe of this place: dark, cozy, friendly. Our server was pleasant, reasonable prices for drinks, and great live music.

Every time I visit Pana, I make it a point to have at least one meal here, because I love their pizza so much. They have many varieties and their prices are reasonable. They often have live music on weekends and an interesting atmosphere. Although the place is not fancy, it is nice and clean. It can get a little... More

Steered by my Rough Guide, I had a little trouble finding it at first;off the main Pana drag. The atmosphere feels like an old pub in NY, dark and rustic with character. Live guitar helped. The pizza was good value and quite tasty. Service was efficient without being pushy. As a solo traveler I felt comfortable amid the dawdle of... More

Hey its a pizza place. But, we had fun. The ambiance is lively. The food is very good. We had a pasta and a pizza. Both were very good. Service was warm and friendly and the prices were spot on.

A wonderful place for a drink, pizza and music! This is an old haunt for foreigners and locals living in Pana and we love it for good reason! It offers excellent home-made pizzas, as well as fish and pasta dishes. Every night there is live music too, some of the best in Pana. A great place for a party or... More
