She wanted Italian so she got Italian. A lovely backstreet find which was oozing authenticity and had a comprehensive lunch menu. We were seated and served quickly, treated like royalty, and the food was delicious. Not huge portions but plenty for lunch and filling enough to have to wait a few hours before we could manage cake. Staff were great,... More

Been enjoying lunch at Pani's since the week it opened (in those long ago days I was working a few doors down) and it doesn't disappoint! This particular visit was for a Graduation lunch; we were seated promptly and served with the usual friendliness. Food was as good as ever. My only grumble is the sandwich list has dwindled to...

This was the perfect place for a tasty birthday lunch while in town shopping. The food is freshly made and delicious, the staff are friendly and the service was quick. I can recommend the lasagne which was gorgeous and the panna cotta with chocolate sauce was a delight!!!! The amount of people coming and going proves it is a popular... More

Went today, staff were very attentive. Had a good selection of food, even when you have a picky seven year old. The issue which I had was my daughter had a children's bowl of plain pasta with parmesan on, totally loved it & finished it quickly & asked for seconds. I was totally shocked that we were charged over £8... More

Wonderful little place. The food, service and value for money totally outstanding. We were only in Newcastle for the day but if we lived nearer then this would definitely become 'our local'. Thank you for such a great visit.

My wife and I have been visiting Panis for a number of years and always try to get there every two months or so when we visit Newcastle. The welcome is warm and friendly even at the busiest of times. Over the years we have sampled much of the menu and we have found the fare to be of a... 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!!!
