Fantastic food: out of the ordinary Italian/specials. Top tiramisu- like la Nonna’s. Good service and great atmosphere.

Be sure to make a reservation. The ratings for the quality of the menu are accurate, the food was quite good, but our service was not. To be fair, it was a very busy afternoon when we were there but even allowing for that service...More

This restaurant is a fantastic find. From the front it would appear to be quite small, but it is extensive. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The food is excellent I had Spezzatino di Carciofi - it was so good I would definitely...More

Called in for lunch just after noon and within 15 minutes there was hardly a table to spare. We anticipated decent sized portions and so went straight to the mains with no bread. Wise decision. Both our choices from the specials board were quite large...More

This is the best pasta I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. I had Roberto's Fregola and it was excellent. Also love the Nocellara olives. It's a hidden gem that the locals frequent. Service was friendly and efficient.

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!!!
