Fresh pasta dishes that are much more interesting than your standard Italian - I came here years ago and prices have definitely crept up but the cheaper dishes are still great value for what you get.

Wow! Authentic Sardi in Newcastle. I had been here before and the return was not disappointing. Gorgeous ravioli and gelato. I'd recommend over the Italian chains at Eldon Square any day!

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!!!
