Nice views, with warm and friendly waiting staff combined with a good Italian menu with fresh ingredients make this the best fine dining experience in the area. I have no complaints and will return. Especially good is the stem artichokes!

On the bright side the restaurant... More

Panini Bay is a great little restaurant with a beautiful view of the bay. Sunsets are beautiful. The view only enhances the delicious meals offered by Chef Ivar and a great staff.

We visit Panini Bay regularly and are always pleased. The menu selection is excellent and the service is friendly and courteous. It's a little out of the way but well worth an extra few minutes.

The best part of our dinner was when we left. The prices are fine dining prices...we wouldn't of minded if the atmosphere was to match. We gave the restaurant the benefit... More
