Delicious carpaccios . Service impeccabile and attentive. Makes you feel at home. For mains we had pasta with fresh seafood and big red shrimps..you can tell they are not the frozen ones and the pasta is typical fresh al dente italian. Would recommend to everyone. Reasonable prizes. Staff friendly and smart

My partner and I visited and had a lovely traditional Italian meal. The restaurant seems to be run by an Italian family so everything is authentic down to the bruschetta and pasta dishes. Would recommend the lobster ravioli. Liked the finishing touch of a complimentary shot of Limoncello.

We ate here on a Friday night, there were 11 of us and they managed to fit us all in even though we hadn't made a booking which a lot of places couldn't accommodate. I did however find it strange that they said we would all have to split up to fit us in so we sat on a 2... More

They did a mezzo-mezzo plate of half cheese plate, half capacious plate. The pasta were delightful. The ravioli with cheese and mushroom fillings also delicious. Loved it. Will return again.

Their pasta dishes are worth recommending. Over all the kitchen is not putting their best. My pepper sauce for meat was not home made, I could taste "powder". The pricing is little over average, so you would expect little better. Service was very attentive and polite.

We had very quick service and the drinks were delivered quickly. The server was quite helpful when asked questions of the local area. The prices were fair and the atmosphere was relaxed.

Been at this place two times by now. Both times i went here for their fresh homemade seafood ravioli which is really good. It is a good place to have a glass of wine and something to eat in a nice atmosphere

I visited Papannis one evening in early January with my family and had the most perfect meal. We were made to feel welcome and the service was friendly and extremely efficient. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. If you like Italian food then Papannis is definitely worth a visit.
