We stopped for lunch today. I had the scallop sandwich, my daughter had the pesto chicken and my husband had the ham and cheese. We split a brownie for dessert. The owner is gracious and kind. The food is exceptional. If I lived closer, I would be there weekly!

If all you want is a sandwich or pasta this is the place. If your looking for anything like plated food this is not the place. Although the sandwiches are good I do have to say I prefer plated meals when I eat out. It is clean and well run.

We purchased a vacation home in Michigan City a year ago so we are up in the area every few weeks at least. We NEVER miss the chance to go to Panini Panini. We have sampled many many items on the menu and all have been excellent! This great restaurant is often busy, so don't be surprised if you have... More

When we walked in, we weren't sure what to do and had to ask another customer. We felt at first like we were being ignored and almost walked out. Then the gal turned to us, she was a bit cool but as we continued to order she warmed up. We then sat back down and waited for our food. Let... More

Quirky lunch spot. Eclectic, welcoming atmosphere - it had a soulful vibe. Bonnie gave us incredibly, friendly service. I was looking for something on the lighter side. I chose the Quiche Lorraine that was accompanied with a small salad and fruit. Quiche was a quarter of a pie - tons of bacon and a lot of flavor. My husband had... More

I was staying in nearby Porter and wandered over to go to the outlet mall. When i looked on the trip advisor app for best restaurants this popped up. I was skeptical at first but then it was magical. They had every combination of food in panini form that you could imagine. I had the grilled scallop panini and an... More

I had the salami with cream cheese sandwich and I am still having dreams about it. I can't wait to go back!

It was lunch time and I was making my way to my next meeting and wasn't finding anywhere that looked good to eat. There were a lot of cars parked in front of Panini Panini and being very hungry, gave it a try. From now on, any trip back to Michigan City will include lunch here! Very creative menu with... More

My wife went to Indiana last weekend to visit some college girl friends. They all went to Panini Panini for lunch. She said this place was amazing, she had a Reuben sandwich. The owner found out all the girls were visiting from out of state. She brought them out French onion soup for them to try and brought them out... More
