Cute little sandwich shop with friendly service. It was a nice respite from the craziness of the weekend. Beautiful outside patio to go along with the welcomed air conditioning inside. Highly recommend the turkey and brie sandwich. Curried chicken sandwich was also really good.

My husband had the Genoa salami with Kalmata olive tapenade etc and declared it his best sandwich ever. My Black Forest ham and cheese was excellent as well. The patio seating gave us a welcome respite from the busy streets on a summer weekday. It was a nice walk from Olsen's bakery where we were lucky to find parking.

Great stop for a quick bit. Lattes, ice tea, terrific gourmet-type sandwiches. Paninos exist in nearby towns of Santa Ynez and Los Olivos. Glad we've got them in the Valley. I do there all the time, so the date below is not really necessary.

The menu was easy to read. You order once inside at the counter. They have a wonderful selection of sándwiches and drinks. It's a little pricey for what you get but there are free refills on the tea which made up for it.

We ordered a variety of take-out sandwiches for a big picnic of 24. The food was delicious and take out was so easy. Price wasn't horrible either. The vegetarians loved the veggie sandwich we had.

We needed a bite to eat. This was a suggestion to us by a local winery. Great Vegetarian Sandwiches and soup here! Would definitely recommend it!

We've eaten here on previous visits, and ate lunch during the festival. Panino's is small, has a couple of tables inside with seating outside. It's a salad and sandwich shop, so you place your order and they bring it out to you. I had the English Stilton, Asian Pear & Chopped Walnut Salad with organic greens w/ creamy English Stilton...

They are in a great location with nice outdoor seating but the food wasn't memorable to me. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing, because everyone else seems to love it. Worth a try once, but I probably wouldn't go back a second time.

I love everything at Panino. If I could, I would eat here every day. They have such a variety of sandwiches and salads including many vegetarian options. They even have some hot sandwich options (which my husband prefers.) They start out with 4 bread options, but sometimes run out later in the afternoon. They never seem to run out of... More

We came here for lunch, and I definitely will come here again. I got the number 12 roast chicken sandwich, and the person with me got the number 6 chicken salad sandwich. I would recommend the focaccia bread, because the person I was with got wheat and they said it was really dry. The place is really small, but they... More
