Excellent lunch and dinner

We went twice on Labor Day week. Lunch terrific, Panini bread takes us back to Paris. Dinner also great, artichoke appetizer takes us back to Rome. Half hour from A.C. Nice ride! Open weekends in winter.

We tried Panini bay several times after the new ownership. The food was good, but expensive for what was offered. The atmosphere was so loud we couldn't even communicate. The best part of our dinner was when we left. The prices are fine dining prices...we wouldn't of minded if the atmosphere was to match. We gave the restaurant the benefit... More

Made a reservation for three. Was seated in back where we couldn't see the bay at all . A table along the window remained empty until we were leaving even though we had asked to sit there. Very noisy- woman next to us was so loud we couldn't hear ourselves. Food was good- I had fettuccine with bolagnese sauce which... More

Ate dinner there with my wife. I decided on the steak and ordered it medium rare. When the food came out, my steak was over cooked (Well Done) and completely void of juice. The steak was not cold, but no where as warm as it should be. It's like the steak was cooked and put under a heat lamp for... More

Had a reservation and went there with my family while we were on vacation. They were very busy that evening. We were sat right away, which was promising....but overall, the service was extremely slow....it took quite a while and asking to get some bread for the table, drinks, etc. when the food came, it was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals!... More

I went for lunch here with my girlfriend and they were setting up for dinner so payed no attention to us. The food was excellent. I beleive they are not able to aquire a liquor licence, which would double their annual profit. Beautiful establishment for a undisturbed dinner.

Thank James S
