Don't be put off by the name (panini in Italian means toasted sandwich), this is an elegant restaurant, which is ideal for a romantic dinner or business lunch.

We have visited this restaurant in prior occasions. Our recent visit was satisfying and without fault. Just a few hiccups but nothing to blur our overall great experience. The sommelier was brand new and could not advise with wine selection. Bread servings were scarce and untimely. One of our 3 person party ordered gnocchi and they were excellent, made in... More

Was only in town for a quick visit, and a bit alone on Sunday for lunch. Dining at Panini's took that away with a great family atmosphere and welcoming and helpful staff

Our hotel staff recommended us Panini's when we asked for italian food, and it was a good a choice. My husband had pasta, and being in Uruguay I wanted to try some meat, so I choose entrecot, both were delicious. Make sure to enjoy the food with some local wine!

Food is terrible! Service ok. Great wine. Very posh but no charm. Makes you feel like you are just another paying customer

Once you walk inside the newly redecorated Panini´s the only thing you will notice that remained the same are the wonderful vegetation inside this restaurant. The heavy but very comfortable furniture and the excellent treatment we got, made it up for a great meal, reasonably priced. Panini´s is extremely well located just a block away from the Yatch Club and... More

We went to this place some weeks ago after the movies. The place was full but it were some empty tables. The time was 11:50pm, we asked the hostess for a table for two and she told us that the waiting time was at least 40 minutes. We asked for the manager and asked about the empty tables, so he...

I loved the place, the open/transparent kitchen and the hygiene of bathrooms. The food is always too salty, which I detest because I love to feel the real taste of the food, especially when I'm eating pasta. If you have a newborn baby, be prepared to not have a changing table on bathrooms (very normal in Uruguay).

The food is a little bit expensive, but the pasta is great. It's the best in town. Don't overestimate your eating capacity, pasta dishes are very well served. Wines are really expensive there, even for Montevideo.
