Have visited twice recently, early evening and really enjoyed both visits. Staff give a nice friendly welcome and provide first class service. The food is good and there is a strong European atmosphere which gives the venue a nice feeling. Friends go there and I will be there again soon I hope. Great to visit, Thank you

They've stripped the plaster off the brick and put in new lights, so the place is unrecognisable from a year ago, and now quite beautiful, including the toilets! We shared a swordfish bruschetta as a starter, wow , never had swordfish so well cooked or so delicious-£5.95! Then we had casarecce with chicken breast and tiger prawns in a chilli... More

Recently visited the restaurant with relatives from Newcastle who use the restaurant, we weren't disappointed! Food, service and ambience were all very good and at a reasonable price. Great find and would use again.

Visited late afternoon on a rainy Saturday and it was still really busy despite it being way past lunchtime. We didn't have a reservation but they had tables. We both had garlic bread to start and it was lovely. Followed by extremely tasty mains that were just amazing! And a decent portion too. I also had a chocolate fudge cake... More

If we lived in the city I'm afraid I'd be here every week. Went for early dinner on Saturday. As busy as ever and the same lovely welcome. We waited at the bar for five minutes til our table was ready - well, we were early. Ordered drinks while we checked out the specials board and the menu. The whole... More

Called in with friends two weeks ago for lunch. Staff weren't very friendly. One waiter kept walking up and down past our table the whole time we were there, which was so annoying! made us feel we were being hurried even though the place was empty! Only one person enjoyed their meal, the others said their food was either bland... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and did not disappoint. It is quite an informal,noisy, busy place with a good atmosphere.It was full on the Saturday evening when we ate there and we were glad that we had booked in advance. I believe that the owners are from Sardinia and there were several Sardinian dishes on the menu. We shared... More

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!!!
