Loved it!

Can't beat the view. Lovely waterfront park with amazing landscaping and views. I ordered the Chicken Salad panini which come with a pickle spear and pasta salad. More than enough for lunch. Had to take half the panini with me. The chicken salad was delicious! My husband had a grilled Reuben... read more

Food was average, restaurant kind of loud. Location was nice. Anything along the waterfront in Beaufort is so pretty. Go for the ambiance. It's a great little town. After dining at Panini's, you can stroll the waterfront park.

After a trip to Italy this summer, I've been reluctant to try American Italian food for fear of being horribly disappointed. I'm happy to say Panini's delivered fresh, authentic Italian food that made my tummy happy to be in Beaufort!

Had lunch on a rainy day. The view of the water from the upper floor is very nice. The building is a converted bank with extraordinary mouldings and furnishings however the only patron restroom is in the basement. Many steps down - no elevator available. The Italian sausage was good but not great. The Panini was very good. Service was... More

For starters, the host was a genius to put us at a table by the pizza oven. The grandsons, ages 3 and 5, were both fascinated and entertained by Mr. Calvin. Not only does Calvin make a terrific pizza, but he is wonderful with the kids as well. Patient, encouraging and answers all their questions. After dinner he even treated... More

Great place for dinner. Great choices for seafood in a quaint setting with fantastic service. It is on the waterfront with a beautiful park between the restaurant and the waterfront.

This restaurant was recommended to me and I am glad that I tried it. We had manicotti and salad. The salad had gouda cheese, walnuts and a slice of a pear. Very good. We had the cheese manicotti and really enjoyed that, too. Tried some of the specialty drinks, Italian margarita and the (I think) Sea Island Sangria. The Margarita... More

Good food by the bay. You can sit outside and enjoy the evening breeze or be comfortable inside. Just don't order the shrimp if you plan to eat outside as it attracts the flies. Otherwise, the staff was great and made you feel comfortable.
