I was told that there was a heavy influence of Italian down here, so I wanted some Spaghetti. This place came up in the search and I was very happy that I found the place. It's a very pleasant scenery here, quiet and elegant for sure. I had the Spaghetti Puttanesca because I was growing tired of huge steaks for... More

We have been to this restaurant on 02Jun2016. Excellent appetizers (we had the octopus and the fried ravioli). Great breads, too! They have an excellent patê, made of milk, eggplant and fresh cream. Wine list is very good, but overpriced. I had the spaghetti putanesca as main course and it was great! Plates are very well served (as the spaghetti... More

After almost a week in Montevideo (and consecutive "Parrillas") Panini's was a blessing and the reason is three-fold: refined atmosphere, superb dishes/wines and superior service. Reservations are binding as it became crowded very quickly after 8:00 PM. Matthias , the sommelier, was most welcoming and double hatted as a perfect host and a great wine expert. He even guided us... More

Good option for Italian food, close by to the World Trade Center, however service was slow, not only for food but also for the bill.

Paninis is a good (average) Italian restaurant. My wife and I went there for a dinner. I ordered a lasagna and she ordered a risotto del mare. The dishes were good, but it was too much food for both of us. If we knew that, we would order just one plate for share. The wine list were good, we ordered... More

Panini´s is one of the most beautifully decorated restaurants in Montevideo. It has more inside trees and plants than tables, and you feel like in an urban rain forest garden. It´s got a wine cellar where you can host your own private dinner and the personnel is as friendly as you can ask. Different types of risottos, salads, pasta and... More

We had dinner there relatively early on a Saturday night. The service reminded me of a bad LA restaurant: lots of attitude, average food and high prices. The wine list was expensive and even though we ordered just after we arrived it only was delivered when the main course arrived. Fettuccine al mare was ink fettuccine but was not mentioned... More

Don't be put off by the name (panini in Italian means toasted sandwich), this is an elegant restaurant, which is ideal for a romantic dinner or business lunch. We took advantage of a discount coupon from WooW to have dinner here, Presumably this is something the restaurant does in January when most of the city is at the beach. I'd... More
