Description: Ljubljana's most famous sandwich shop also includes a full-fledged restaurant and café (in addition to the original soup and sandwiches of course) on the expanded premises. The à la carte selection leans towards the Italian, with homemade gnocchi and ravioli standing out, but also offers a handful of Slovene favourites, and the constantly changing daily lunch specials are a good value. The warm cosy atmosphere is also conducive to dropping in for an evening drink or dessert. Dober tek!

“Very enjoyable lunch at an excellent price, in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We had lunch in Paninoteka, which we stumbled across on our way back into the heart of the city, after the free 2.5 hour walking tour of Ljubljana. The staff were very friendly, during a bustling lunch time and we opted for the set lunch menus, one of which was Euro 6.50 and the other Euro 7.50 for three courses, while a .75 litre bottle of water was Euro 2.20. The set lunch was excellent value for money, including a soup course, large salad, main course and dessert. We had the corn soup and the pea soup, both of which were very good. For mains we had a chicken fajita with potato wedges and a pasta dish, which were also very good. For dessert, we both had a Blueberry cake. This was the most reasonable restaurant we ate in, during our week long trip to Trieste, Slovenia and Venice and is excellent for a hearty lunch.

“if you can, stop there for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

we decided to choose Paninoteka the first day in Lubiana, and we made the right choise.
The place is nice and clean, staff is ok, not to friendly, but they worked good!
Other then sandwiches they have a nice selection of warm food.
I went with the 9,20€ lunch deal, which had green peas soup, beef steak with mustard sauce and mushrooms, some kind of bread ravioli and a mix salad on the side, and a slice of cake.
My woman had the 7,90€ menu with zucchini soup, turkey breast deepfryed with almonds, cucumber and yogurt sauce, deepfried gnocchi and mix salad, and a slice of cake.
GOSH, everything was so good!
we drunk 2 cokes and we paid 21,30€!
PS. at night we had just a snack, we had not hungry at all after that lunch!

“Great panini”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This is a good place to have a short break after walking in the center, the paninies are good, and there are lots of different fillings. Good food and reasonable prices.

“nice, friendly, quick and flexible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

there is not much to add to the four words in the title - however, have to say that they are smily and not expensive. We had teas/coffees with rich deserts as a company of 10 people on one night, and the bill was only 41 euro. It's almost exactly what a tourist cafe in a lively spot shall be.

could not give them five points only because the interior design is very simple/modest, seems like they hired a designer who was previously rejected by McDonalds :)) good deserts and good coffee shall be accompanied with a more stylish interior.
