Visited for a light lunch mid afternoon. Service was quick and attentive, food was tasty, just the right portion size and was very reasonably priced. Noisy atmosphere inside but not intrusive, nice and relaxed, just be prepared to speak up and add to the racket!...More

There's nothing to dislike about this place, we've been going for years and haven't ever found anything not to like about it. The food's great, staff are lovely and it's good value for money!

We ended our three night stay in Newcastle with a wonderful meal out at this restaurant. I'm glad we booked a table ahead of time because it was heaving. There were four of us and we all had starters, a main and three of us...More

Always a constantly high standard of food and service. You can rely on panis for a delicious authentic Italian meal. Been around a long time and never disappoints!

Pani's has been in Newcastle forever it seems and the owner brothers continue work hard to maintain their high standards of authentic Italian cuisine just like mamma made! Atmosphere, service and food all very good.

My review is a bit short but sweet in a nutsell I love this Italian restaurant, I have ate there twice and at each visit the service and the food were excellent. I look forward to my next dining experience there.

Quaint deceiving place that opens up at the back. Fantastic atmosphere, staff couldn't be more helpful & quality food at a reasonable price. Definitely not disappointed with the reviews on here and would recommend to all.

Fantastic little Cafe Bar just off Grey Street, around the corner from the Theatre Royal. Great food and service. You can always come here for a coffee in the morning, a delicious sandwich at lunchtime and equally come here in the evening. A great range...More

Popular which is a good sign. Excellent prompt service when you want it but we were also left alone when we wanted. Some portions small. My Vegetable lasagne not that appetising. Sorbet (dairy) was very nice. Would return. Probably 6.5/10

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!!!
