Panini's is a charming Italian café conveniently located in the heart of Old City. The price for the amount of food you pay for is amazing. Check them out. You will not be disappointed.

today my husband and I decided to give this cute place a try. We are not from Philly and wanted to explore downtown and have our traditional Sunday brunch even away from home. Having a comp mimosa thrown in made me want to try this place out even more! Well, not up to par is how I will leave it.... More

This little hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant served the best meal I've had in a long time. The ricotta-filled gnocchi in a Gorgonzola cheese sauce wasn't on the menu (server mentioned it), but it certainly should be! The little nuggets of heaven were swimming in a sauce that was perfectly seasoned and plentiful. It's a BYOB place, which we didn't have along,... More

We are walking along the street in search of some place interesting for dinner. A young man with a menu in hand suggested we eat at Panini's. We declined, walked a little further, and then decided since we really didn't have a destination in mind that we would give Panini's a chance. I am so glad we did. There were... More

We had a wonderful meal at Panini's Trattoria,. We highly recommend it. Everything about the food was just right.

We were walking by when Brian stopped us on the... More

There are many restaurants on Market street and this is my choice for a good Italian dinner. Excellent service fast and friendly. Portions were just the right size. You won't be disappointed.

A small restaurant, 5 minutes walk from the Liberty Bell Centre. I dined inside alone & was made to feel welcome by the staff. I had spaghetti pomodoro, which came with salad or soup to start with for free. The food I ate was simple, but very well cooked & also good value. I would visit again to enjoy their... More

We stopped for just a night in Philly went walking around and found this modest place where Brian invited us to try their food. Everything was made from scratch and it was gorgeous. This is a most stop for those who love great home Italian cooking.

This place offered free mimosas and breakfast for two only cost $10 + tip, but we found a hair in one of the meals, the eggs were overcooked and chewy and water had "stuff" floating in it. Staff was pleasant but slow. I would not return. If you're looking for low budget and don't care about sanitary conditions this is... More

The host and servers were warm and accommodating, telling me they'd just won two awards, promising me a free glass of wine in this BYOB joint; unfortunately, they had run out. Ah, well. I ordered the steak dinner on special, the salad was delicious, the bread accompanied by a very nice herbed oil. Well, the steak was not up to... More
