Came here with a party in the evening and we had an excellent group meal. The starters, mains and desserts were all very tasty with good portions, none of our group had any complaints. The staff were very much on the ball and therefore service was excellent, no one waited for their food, dishes were cleared, the wine flowed! Hard... More

Pani's is a personal favourite of mine, but this review is specifically for a group dinner we booked in for 24 people. There was a bit of a mix up when I made the booking as we had requested the set menu but we're not told we needed to preorder. Upon our arrival there was a bit of a scramble... More

This restaurant is busy and I can see why. Tasty starters, great main (pasta) and generous portion. And an affogato to finish. Excellent.

Me and my partner came to Pani's for dinner on the 18th of August we ordered olives and wine to tuck into while we decided on a main. The olives were big and juicy and the marinade was very tasty. We both decided on specials, i chose a tortellini dish with nutmeg and walnuts in a creamy cheese sauce. It... More

Dined here on a lunchtime when the restaurant was about half full. Surprised by how quickly food arrived, about 5 minutes from ordering making you think hot dishes prepared in advance and stuck in microwave. We had the mushroom risotto, crepe filled with spinach and ricotta cheese, and a panini with Parma Ham and salad. Food was okay if nothing... More

Visited on the Saturday night for the Great Run. Went in at 7 but booked up but managed to get us in at 8. Menu offers great value for money, fantastic starters and mains with decent service. Acoustics made it a bit noisy but still really enjoyed the meal.

I hadn't been to Panis for years. Having lived abroad for a while. I remembered the cave-like restaurant and fantastic ciabatta sandwiches from old so decided to take my 2 young daughters there for lunch. The place has been redecorated and still has its sociable friendly atmosphere. Obviously they are doing something right as they're very much still in business.... More

Pani's Café opened January 1995 and run by a family of brothers and sisters. It was one of the first Italian style café in Newcastle. As authentically Italian as you can get without actually going to Italy. In Pani's Café you can find a different menu for day and night and a constantly updated special board. We offer you the chance to experience Italian home cooked food and to savour an authentic Italian coffee in a convivial atmosphere. A little piece of Italy in the heart of a beautiful city!!!
