Panini Panini is a small local restaurant that serves delicious, fresh and creative food. The wide variety of sandwiches and salads for lunch is amazing especially considering the small kitchen. Never been for dinner, but have explored most of the lunch menu and I love the small salad accompanying sandwiches.

It is a small place that offers great food and owners are the best. A friend of ours recommended the place and it exceeds her great review.

The food was very good. My husband & I went there because so many of our friends had raved about it. They were right. I would definitely go again.

Food was out of this world delicious. I had the tuna sandwich and french onion soup and creme brulee for dessert!! Staff was so friendly and helpful. It's a must try! Total meal was 14.50 but oh so worth it.

Great spot for homemade food, and a non-chain atmosphere and vibe. Chicken pesto panini was awesome, just the right balance of flavors. Nicely complemented by the small salad and cantaloupe. My sister had the curry chicken salad sandwich and that looked awesome also.
