Called on the off chance of getting a table, staff found us one (although time limited). Staff were brilliant and friendly, we all enjoyed our food and drinks. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

A good quality Italian restaurant located in the heart of Newcastle. Not far from Gray and Dean Street and not far from the Quayside, this Italian restaurant has good service and a varied menu. Worth booking at peak periods as it was quite busy.

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!!!
