Delicious food, great service, and nice atmosphere for the win. They didn't have a wall sign oddly, just a chalkboard sign on the street, so keep an eye out!

Bottom Line: For light Mediterranean fare done right and quick, eat at Paninoteca.

My wife and I ordered four small plates: tapenade, ceviche, lamb meatballs and tabouli. It was more than enough food to constitute two dinners. What's more, it was delicious. Admittedly and in concurrence with other reviews, the lamb meatballs were dry. However, the tapenade was delicious, as was the ceviche. We will go again.

Quick Tips:

Street parking only.

Extremely limited seating, come early or call ahead and get it to go.

Rude!!!!!!! Handed us a menu ordered a beer and charged us a different price. Bartender said it was because it was a "special night". To top it off the beer was expired and skunky. Will never be back.

We have been going here for years. The food is always solid. My favorite thing about this place is the whipped feta cheese. Good wines and my favorite Greek beer--Mythos.

On our way to the Gaspirilla art show, decided against food trucks, Paninoteca was there. They were swamped! After we were seated, we realized how crazy crowded they were, and decided to R E L A X. Everyone was hustling, but everyone was friendly and attentive.
I had sangria which was delicious, cold, fruity but not cloying. We had hummus and sandwiches and an appetizer to share -- everything was SO GOOD! The air conditioning was working, not a negative thing to say -- We were thanked TWICE by what seemed like owners -- for coming in. I loved everything.
