A return visit and such a great choice every time. No wonder this place is so popular-the service is superb and the food sooooo tasty. We we soon brought wine and our bruschetta starter. Then, delicious spinach and ricotta pancakes and asparagus chicken. Everything was fresh and nothing wasted! Would really like to transport this place into Harrogate!

Just back from a weekend in Northumberland. We visited Pani's twice and the food and service are still great. Highly recommended.

Last week we had fantastic dinner at Pani’s Café celebrating my friends 25th   birthday and we all absolutely loved the food here. Everything was delicious and tasted really fresh. Will certainly return.

Have visited twice recently, early evening and really enjoyed both visits. Staff give a nice friendly welcome and provide first class service. The food is good and there is a strong European atmosphere which gives the venue a nice feeling. Friends go there and I will be there again soon I hope. Great to visit, Thank you

They've stripped the plaster off the brick and put in new lights, so the place is unrecognisable from a year ago, and now quite beautiful, including the toilets! We shared a swordfish bruschetta as a starter, wow , never had swordfish so well cooked or so delicious-£5.95! Then we had casarecce with chicken breast and tiger prawns in a chilli... More

Recently visited the restaurant with relatives from Newcastle who use the restaurant, we weren't disappointed! Food, service and ambience were all very good and at a reasonable price. Great find and would use again.

Visited late afternoon on a rainy Saturday and it was still really busy despite it being way past lunchtime. We didn't have a reservation but they had tables. We both had garlic bread to start and it was lovely. Followed by extremely tasty mains that were just amazing! And a decent portion too. I also had a chocolate fudge cake... More

Description
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!!!
