The food was delicious. It was also very filling. The service could definently improve. I waited a long to get my dessert. However, other than that, the restaurant was great.

We've been going to Panico's for at least 25 years and generally counted it as one of our favorites. However, over the past few years it seemed to be sliding downward. It felt "dowdy" and deserted. Despite all kinds of gimmicks and discounts the management...More

Across the street from the main Panico's restaurant, but a totally different establishment, specializing in delicious thin-crust pizza.
