This just looks like a low key place to eat in a strip mall. To my surprise, it was very nice inside and had excellent food. I had the lasagna which came with a salad and like half a loaf of bread, all very good. My wife had the mostaccioli which was also very good. Oh, we ordered a half order which was more than enough to eat. Nice atmosphere and good service, no complaints at all. I will be back when in the area.

We visited Paninos recently and were very disappointed. The remodeled Paninos is drab and dull. The main dining room feels like a basketball court. The bar is not cozy like it use to be. Can go to Tavern Grill for bar experience (better food, prices,happy hour, service). The quality of the panino is not good and overpriced. Service is slow and unfriendly. Will not be returning.

I was recently at Paninos after the remodel and found that nothing has changed. The paninos have gone downhill. Cheap meat, nothing in it but sloppy dressing. The service was slow and unfriendly. Looking around at other servers, no smiles to be had. Seemed more interested in standing around talking at the front. Too many new restaurants in the area now, and will not come back.

All the panino sandwiches are very generous. You'd do well to share one. Chips and salad come with it - add a little ice cream for dessert and that's plenty. Service is friendly Often a wait on Friday and Sat. nights. kid friendly.

Awesome sandwiches but they are getting too expensive for lunch time if you ask me... Great place to go if you don't mind spending a lot for lunch... Salads with the sandwich are very small.
