Came due to high review. However, ordered lasagne and a specialty course: coniglio, the rabbit meat was tough, with salty risotto. Lasagne served wasn't hot enough. Probably we ordered the unpopular dish? Disappointed.

I have been here twice recently and both times we got a very friendly welcome, a good lively atmosphere, and very good food. The was a good selection of interesting dishes, and all the food I ate was very tasty. Very much above average. Good...More

We visited Pani's at the suggestion of a friend from the area and we were not disappointed! The restaurant specialises in Sardinian cuisine and we enjoyed pasta dishes and wine specific to the island. All reasonably priced with friendly service. 3 courses plus a bottle...More

Delicious Italian / Sardinian food, just round the corner from the Theatre Royal in Grey Street. Flexible and friendly service means that it's now our "go-to" restaurant when we need a quick bite before a play, or a relaxing table for two (even late in...More

We came for lunch on a weekday. It was busy and noisy, with families and occasional noisy children. The service was excellent, and the food arrived very quickly but it was very bland and disappointing.

We enjoy Pani's a little gem of a restaurant in the city and always welcoming with specials worth trying. A Cafe in the morning and a restaurant later.

This is not fine dining but it does not aim to be. It is extremely good, homely cooking, without pretension. I started with ravioli, filled with braised lamb and ricotta, in a very tasty lamb broth. I then had a really satisfying bowl of fregola...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!!!
