The menu is extensive! Which, I realize sometimes, means everything is average and variety is the goal. Not here! Every item, from our soup, bread, pasta, sandwich, greens, fresh fruit and bakery items was FABULOUS! I eat out a lot! And honestly, I ordered the Pasta dish "Pappardelle with Beef", and it was one of the most delicious things I... More

Every time I eat here I am just delighted with my food. I try something new each time and I have never been disappointed. Save room for the homemade cheesecake! You won't regret it.

Spent the day at the beach a few weeks ago and was looking for something quick, but not fast food. Saw this on Yelp and decided to give it a try. Absolutely delicious! Had the pork loin club, the bread was amazing, the pork tender, and the bacon crispy and plentiful. Side salad was slightly dressed with a light vinaigrette,... More

Panini Panini has the freshest food in Michigan City with a huge variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. The owners themselves make and deliver your meal with the utmost professionalism. They offer European flare in their dishes as well as the simple grilled cheese.

MY girlfriend and I are on a small vacation and decided to stop in and try this place. I could not believe a small town could have such great food. We were not the only people impressed with the food. We overheard 4 people from Italy say the same thing. I think that alone speaks for itself. Even as busy... More

I saw the reviews were great so made it part of a weekend trip to Michigan City. So glad I did! We stopped in at 2:00pm, which is great since I hear it's busy unless you go off peak. The place has art all over the walls and an outdoor patio in the back. The food was great! The bread... More

The reviews were accurate. I knew to keep a look out for this restaurant because it can be hard to find if I was not looking for it. Blink and you could miss it. The inside is small but they have an outside eating area that is walled and quite quaint. The menu is quite varied and absolutely wonderful. I... More

We found Panini Panini through our TripAdvisor app while we were visiting Blue Chip Casino in July 2014. We were slightly worried at first because it was so hidden and you could literally blink and miss it if you weren't looking hard. We immediately changed our minds when we walked in and saw the cute chalk board menu on the... More

Panini Panini is located just before downtown Michigan City. It is just a 15 foot store front, which if you blink you will miss. The food is excellent and the deserts fantastic. Seating is limited, so go off peak. They are not open for dinner, so be aware.
