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!!!

“Very Very good. with a great atmosphere”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

I have not eaten in this restaurant for several years . I visited tonight and was warmly welcomed back and had a great meal. The staff were great and the food was served and presented well.
The pasta was well cooked and the sauces full of flavour.
The desserts were great too with one of the best tiramisu you could ever have.
The restaurant is busy and vibrant and its a great place to relax it feels like being in Italy and you forget that the Mediterranean is not outside the door. Try it and enjoy.

“The best lasagne”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

I love Pani's - they are so lovely with bambinos, and the service is great - the wine list is among the best in Newcastle

“Always a place of choice !”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

I have been eating here for well over 5 years now, the atomosphere is chilled and relaxed, which comes from the staff - who are very friendly and effcient ! The food is delicious and the menu is different to your bog standard italian - it's god value for money and I have never had a problem with either the service or food !

“Few and Far Between”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Unfortunately, although we have a sizable ex pat Repubblica Italiana population in Newcastle we don't possess a great deal of authentic Italian cuisine however, the Pani brothers have been serving up home cooked mama food forever. Very good

“Great - keep it up!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Three of us visited on a weekday at the start of March for a simple, one-course birthday lunch. It was lovely: good food, service (even though very busy), atmosphere and value. Would recommend.
