Description: A favorite of Winter Park locals for over fifteen years. Pannullo's serves a wide variety of Italian cuisine with a creative flair as well as traditional favorites. A wide selection of appetizers, salads and soups compliment over fifty pasta, chicken, seafood and steak selections. There is something for everyone on this moderately priced menu that serves up a great salad with all dinner entrees. Located on Park Ave and overlooking Central Park, Pannullo's offers three distinct dining areas to enjoy your meal. Dine on the sidewalk and enjoy the view of bustling Park Ave or dine on the patio while escaping the rain or shine. If indoor dining is more to your liking, enjoy our Tuscany themed dining room with the same great food served in all three areas. Select from our wine list that boasts the most reasonably priced wines by the glass or bottle on Park Ave. Chef Pannullo is preparing some of our famous fresh cheesecake so hurry down and enjoy. The only thing we overlook is the park

“Wonderful dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

After a whirlwind at the magic kingdom, we packed the kids in the car and headed to winter park. We were seated quickly at Pannullos and enjoyed a fine meal with great service. Such a nice alternative to the big chains lining the freeway en route, and such a pretty refreshing town. Highly recommend

“Favorite Park Ave Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

This is my favorite restaurant in Winter Park. Good food, great price, and excellent service. I really enjoy the atmosphere, relaxed but not too casual. The outside dining is nice but try to avoid the sidewalk tables, there is a lot of foot traffic along Park Ave so you get lots of people walking by your table. Start with the bruschetta or the calamari. The bruschetta is the best anywhere in Orlando, fresh tomatoes, basil, and cheese on their crusty on the outside, soft on the inside, bread, can't be beat. As for entrees, any of the pastas are very good. Ravioli Terracina and Tortellini Carbonara are my favorites. The cream sauce on the terracina has great flavor while not being too heavy. The pizza is also very good, not just if you have kids. Thin crispy crust that doesn't over shadow the flavor of the tomato sauce and fresh cheese. They definitely save the best for last though. The fresh homemade cheesecake is amazing. Be sure to ask what variety they have (apple pie, snickers, reese's, oreo...) before you even order drinks and have them set aside a piece, they can, and will, run out. Come back often to try all of them!

“Not impressed.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

My husband and I went here last weekend with some family members. We weren't impressed. I ordered the chicken piccatta, which was fine, nothing exceptional. My husband ordered the Frutti di Mare - the scallops appeared to have been previously frozen; there were a couple of bad mussels in the dish as well, and it was fairly flavorless. Won't go back.

“Unexpected Pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

As an Orlando resident, expected good food and atmosphere, but with the normally high Winter Park - Park Avenue - price. The streetside menu looked appetizing, but the the prices seemed too reasonable. We decided to give it a try, especially because it was right across from the well groomed public park where the art festival is staged each spring. They pushed two tables together for the three of us at the covered sidewalk location. The sun was setting when they brought out our wine and appetizers. The mussels in a white wine sauce at $8.00 were excellent and plentiful for two. Our Washington, DC area guest said his veal piccata entre far exceeded his expectations and was the best he had had. We had a mid-priced ($29.00) bottle of Tussara (sp) Pinot Grigio (slightly dry) and were very pleased. When my wife asked to substitute a creamy pesto sauce for the red sauce on her ahi tuna fillet, they readily accomodated the request.

The only reason this is not a 5 rating is that I believe some patrons may not like the sound of the train passing the nearby rail crossing on the far side of the park. (three passed during our 2 hour dinner). It did not bother us and we will return for sure as there are many more menu items that are quite inviting. Bon Apetit!
