Panini's is in a converted bank building in downtown Beaufort. What was done with the space is remarkable. Lots of windows, very open feel. The food is great. Definitely go!

“Pizza, Panini and more”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This place is in an historic building, has an outdoor patio and is by the water. I have always ordered pizza, so my personal experience is limited to this kind of dish, but friends who ate with me, ordered other types of food and were all satisfied. My favorite one is the Mediterranean pizza (with no anchovies) and my second choice is the Sicilian pizza with the surprisingly good lemon peel. One little suggestion I have is to add some more experienced waiters. The rest is perfect as is.

“Big portions, good food”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

The food was good, wine selection was decent, tables were nicely spaced, and prices were fair. You get a TON of food, so don't over-order. The fried ravioli with mushroom was very good, and the she-crab soup was delicate but rich. Anitpasto was fresh and abundant. Walking distance to inn, and free parking on street was easy. Good family place, but seats for couples also available.

“Excellent food in a great venue”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

A converted bank with an outstanding antique bar. The food and service were excellent. The location is central to the town. Will return. Visited this restaurant during a day trip from Hilton Head will make the trip in the future just to enjoy this restaurant.

“Comfortable atmosphere, central location.”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

The restaurant is in a beautiful older building with incredible high windows and natural light. The bar is an original handcarved work of art. Panini's seems to attract a mix of visitors and locals which is always a good sign.
