Located at the far end of High Bridge Street, Panis is yet another proper Newcastle institution.

An Italian/Sardinian place run by Italians/Sardinians, smack in the middle of town, where the food is ultra fresh & it comes real quick.

The feel of the place is quirky & informal, the welcome is friendly & it really hits the spot taste wise. It’s got that special something…

Everyone goes here & we all love it.

With its own sweet little vibe, Panis effortlessly transcends all would be competitors.

It carries none of the clichés that blight the city centre’s more ‘boil in the bag’ Italian type places.

The waiting staff don’t do the letching over girl customer thing, that more cheesie places still peddle even today & it isn’t cluttered with undecorative tat.

Midway between a cafe & a restaurant, in Panis you really have a feel of eating with cool people who care about the quality of the food they serve.

It’s also really cheap to eat, drink & socialise here.

A winner on every single level & always has a busy, bustling & cosmopolitan atmosphere because of that.

We could go on & on & on about how cool a place this is, but as they keep it simple, so will we. You’ve gotta try this place 10/10.
