I’ve been coming to Pani’s for a few years now and every time I come I enjoy it more than that last time. I always tend to order the specials and they are always amazing! I’ve been lots of places in Italy and haven’t had...More

The food was ok but nothing special. Lasagne was small, garlic bread was dry and salad was boring. We were by the door which was being opened repeatedly, this made it drafty and uncomfortable. Staff were nice.

This place looks so unassuming from the outside, up a small side street, but once you enter and walk down to the main eating area, it just opens up and becomes a busy, noisy and very Italian atmosphere. We visited for lunch and decided to...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!!!
