Great atmosphere, nice comprehensive menu, speedy service and food excellent. Located in a very central location in the city. Always buzzing with activity for coffee, lunch and dinner. We are regular visitors and highly recommend that you give it a try.

Not pizza in sight. Wonderful little place with mainly proper Sicilian menu. Great food, service and atmosphere and very reasonably priced. Normally very busy so worth booking but nice and relaxed tonight.

No Pizza, but great anti pasti and a good selection of Italian desserts- the staff are unfailingly friendly and enjoy a bit of ' banter' with customers

Have been a fan of Panis for many years, but just can't believe how poor the quality of food, the service & staff have deteriorated recently. Food bland, under cooked, extremely poor quality ingredients & even tasted like a horrible micro waved super market ready...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!!!
