Pleasant surpriseLooking for a place to dine downtown last weekend was a challenge . Panni was available and turned out to be a great find All five of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Service exceptional .5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food at a fair priceUnpretentious little neighborhood spot...but warmly decorated and tidy looking.
The food was well seasoned, fresh and light. I had chicken Marsala which was just sweet enough with lots of mushrooms , mashed potatoes and a lovely side of flavorful thin sliced zucchini . The sauce was a just right reduction... Very tasty .
Not, as in some restaurants, a thick, heavy ,overly sweet brown gravy.
The servers and hostess were so helpful and charming. And a bonus is that you can BYO wine.
Walking distance to Independence Mall and Hotel Monaco.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very happy with theI was very happy with the location, and access. The menu had many choices and we ordered off the special pasta menu(farfelle and shrimp) which was a real value, included soup or salad.Pasta was delish. Funny was my Mom ordeed a creame brulee and we knew when we both tasted it they had forgotten the sugar. They took item off the bill and gave us a free dessert for later. My Tiamasu was homemade and yummy. Very enjoyable dinng experience. Server was very nice and attentive.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPicked an Italian BYOB atPicked an Italian BYOB at random for dinner out with 4 other friends and this place was a hit! Best customer service out there, everyone who works at Panini's Trattoria cares without being nosy or bothersome. The hostesses and waitresses made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant and the courses came out in very reasonable time. After dessert, my group stuck around chatting and finishing our wine. We loved the place. Great, great find. Also the Tiramisu is to die for, I wish I'd ordered seconds!!1/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
