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!!!

“Fine words but !!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The menu in Panis seemed very inviting, but unfortunately the quality of the food did not live up to the promise.
House wine was OK and cheap enough, but if this is typical of the food offer, there is better to be had in Newcastle for the price.

“Good food, prompt service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We popped into Pani's for a quick meal before going to a show. The manager took us to our table and we explained that we didn't have much time .The place was quite busy but he said 'no problem', We chose our dishes and were served them in about ten minutes. The food was very tasty and served with a smile.

“Great tasty food and great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

As always read Tripadvisor before choosing where to try next, we booked for Saturday 4th May and its a good job we did as it was extremely busy, the place has a real buzz about it with every type of visitor possible, so whoever you are you will all be welcome, the waiters are incredibly efficient, I have never had service with such speed and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was gorgeous and reasonalby priced our bill was £52, for two which included starters, main, dessert a bottle of lovely house wine and an Sardnian beer.
We will return again when in the area

“Authentic italian cafe in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Popped in for lunch, service was extremely fast. Ordered the Pani's sausage salad with black pudding which was delish. Very reasonably priced and a vast selection of food. Looking forward to returning to try other dishes on the menu.
