“homemade and delicious”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

This is a tiny place, easy to overlook, but the food is outstanding. Everything is homemade in this Italian eatery. My husband and I both began with the highly unusual soup: artichoke, spring peas and linguine pasta cooked al dente. It was very tasty. We both had paninis: his had lots of prosciutto and freshly made mozzarella; I ordered smoked salmon without any cheese, and it was full of flavor and delicious. For dessert I ordered a lemon tart actually flown in from Italy! This whole meal was a surprise because every course was scrumptious and unusual. Most patrons come here to get their individually made pizzas, but we enjoyed sitting at a table for our lunch. We plan to go back next week!

“A treasure by the gulf”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The best cannoli ever!! I have tried most of the paninis and have not found one I don't like. Brought friends and family there quite often and always have excellent service and food. The atmosphere is like a sandwich shop, but don't feel fooled by that. The home made mozzarella is the BEST!!!

“Great food right in downtown Venice”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We stopped in Caffe Panini to see what all the talk was about and was quite surprised. The food was great, the service was great, the prices are reasonable and they make their own Mozarella cheeze. It is located on the main strip downtown Venice which provides plenty of parking and puts you right where all the shopping is. We will go again!

“Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Although in a small building with an outside eating area, Caffe Panini "knocked our socks off" with its home made mozzarella cheese and home made dough for its panini sandwiches and its pizzas; an incredibly delicious experience--all of the ingredients are freshly prepared, obviously nothing canned or frozen; eating areas are immaculately clean both inside and out
