Called in for lunch just after noon and within 15 minutes there was hardly a table to spare. We anticipated decent sized portions and so went straight to the mains with no bread. Wise decision. Both our choices from the specials board were quite large...More

This is the best pasta I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. I had Roberto's Fregola and it was excellent. Also love the Nocellara olives. It's a hidden gem that the locals frequent. Service was friendly and efficient.

I have been visiting for 25 years or thereabouts, but moved away 8 years ago, so only go 3-4 times a year now. Went today with my family, and it is as good as it has ever been. Great to see familiar staff still working...More

A return to Panis after it's refurb and I'm happy to say it still is a good choice for a good quality, reasonably priced meal in the city centre. Packed to the rafters at 6 p.m. on a rainy Wednesday night, it must be doing...More

I'd been wanting to try Panis for a long time and never quite made it so when a friend suggested we go here for an early evening catch up after a quick drink I jumped at the chance. We hadn't booked but were seated in...More

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!!!
