Description: A favorite of Winter Park locals for over fifteen years. Pannullo's serves a wide variety of Italian cuisine with a creative flair as well as traditional favorites. A wide selection of appetizers, salads and soups compliment over fifty pasta, chicken, seafood and steak selections. There is something for everyone on this moderately priced menu that serves up a great salad with all dinner entrees. Located on Park Ave and overlooking Central Park, Pannullo's offers three distinct dining areas to enjoy your meal. Dine on the sidewalk and enjoy the view of bustling Park Ave or dine on the patio while escaping the rain or shine. If indoor dining is more to your liking, enjoy our Tuscany themed dining room with the same great food served in all three areas. Select from our wine list that boasts the most reasonably priced wines by the glass or bottle on Park Ave. Chef Pannullo is preparing some of our famous fresh cheesecake so hurry down and enjoy. The only thing we overlook is the park

Lovely outside seating, and very generous portions, Good brewed ice tea, and attentive service, BUT food itself disappointing.

Bruschetta too garlicky, meat sauce and meatballs too much oregano. The Veal Franco had tender veal, but the dish's flavor was overwhelmed by too much sherry.

Pasta served with both dishes way overcooked (precooked, then reheated).

Wanted to like it, have to agree with the "pass on this" reviews from food perspective.

I can't say enough good things about Pannullo's. First of all, you can't find a better location in the Orlando area. The restaurant was lively and full and is located on a very cool street in Winter Park. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable and helped us with selections and specials. The calamari and chicken marsala were outstanding, with very nice portions for the price. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the Orlando area if they want Italian dining with an excellent atmosphere!!!

Great location in Winter Park and seating gives you the option of dining in, out, or half and half which we chose as it still felt as though you were outside but we were protected from the sudden showers. Our waiter was excellent, very friendly and deserving of the tip, even though having it automatically added to the bill was surprising. We think this was because it was a Groupon deal.
The food was very good and we both enjoyed our meals although I did expect the flavours to be stronger from the menu description.

The food was very good, The atmosphere was cute and Italian. I had the pasta with shrimp carbonara and asked them to add scallops which they were happy to do...... it was excellent.

Warm comfortable place to enjoy dinner.

What a lovely and quaint place Winter Park, Florida is and then to come across Pannullo's made it that much nicer. This restaurant is located across from a park and they had tables set-up outside along the side walk. The food was very good and so was the service. Nice size portions. Would highly recommend.
