My second visit to Pani’s and definitely not my last. Simple, tasty authentic Sardinian dishes plus more mainstream popular Italian classics to suit all tastes. What’s not to like? Great food, great service and a lively atmosphere. Will be back.

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!!!
