Lovely authentic Sardinian food of fantastic quality for a cheap price. I had Roberto’s Fregula as a risotto - it was beautiful, very flavoursome and filling. The service was also outstanding, probably some of the friendliest staff out of any restaurant in Newcastle. Potentially our...More

I love Panis! I've visited regularly for years and it's always excellent. The staff are some of the friendliest you'll find in any restaurant and the food is delicious. The tiramisu is a particular favourite of mine

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!!!
