I have walked past this restaurant many times but my first visit was very impressive. Friendly understated staff, bustling atmosphere and and excellent bowl of penne with tender chicken breast and garlic. Well priced at just over £6. A good place for a mid-price lunch...More

Authentic Italian restaurant. Gets very busy but service and food were very good. Also do lovely pastries and coffee. Only problem lots of tables quite close together if you have shopping. Would definitely visit again. Reasonably priced.

In my many reviews both at home and abroad, I have given five stars feeling it was well deserved. This would mean that Pani's would rate six stars if allowed. You will struggle to find better home cooked food anywhere! A splendid lunch in the...More

This Cafe bar is an absolute gem. Loved the restaurant decor and the really friendly staff. The food was out of this world, fresh, tasty, beautifully presented and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for. 5* marking from me. 😊

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!!!
