The food is delicious and the pizza is amazing! I go there often and I am never disappointed. The staff is very friendly and the service is great. It is BYO for those that enjoy to bring their own wine. If you plan to go on the weekend it is best to make a reservation as it does get crowded very quickly. I would highly recommend Panini grill to anyone looking for great Italian food

Our waiter Andrew (If I remember correct) was great! It was a bit noisy but a busy Friday night. Food was good some of the apps were too salty but overall a great meal, I will go back.

I really want to like this place and see it succeed. There is something missing with some of the dishes (eggplant parmigiana) and the service. Wait staff seems worried about doing things wrong. We were there a few weeks ago and were placed right by the door even though the restaurant was empty. Our food was great that night Carbonara and pasta bolognase. Brought friends back and were seated at a better table. My dinner and friends dinner came out when the salads came out. When we questioned the waitstaff, they were clueless that we would want to have our salad first. They took it back and when it came out with the other dishes I wondered if it was going to be as tasty as if the timing was right. It was okay. Husband loved his veal parm, friend hated his eggplant parm. We may try it again as it’s local, I like the interior set up, they have amazing bread and as I said before I’d like to see it succeed.

The food was good and the server was excellent. One suggestion to management would be to lower the lighting. We had been here when it was San Marzano's and the atmosphere was much better when the lights were low. It seems more like eating in a diner with bright lights now. Other than that we had a pleasant evening.

Have eaten there a number of times and each time the food has been excellent.
Brought friends for a holiday lunch who had never been there and they will all be going back.
Never had a bad meal.

We go to this restaurant often. Tonight’s experience might be the reason we don’t come back for awhile!
Service was horrible and they kept saying it was because the waitress was new but yet they gave her lots of tables all over the restaurant.
She never had a smile on her face and acted like she was doing us a favor waiting on us.
Never came back to see how things were or if we needed anything after we got our food.
We asked for dessert menus and order coffee when she handed us the dessert menu and when she brought the coffee, which by the way was cold, she didn’t even ask what we wanted for dessert just walked away.
Food was just mediocre this time.
Panini Grill if you continue to hire people like we had serve us you might as well close your doors now!!

There was a party in the restaurant that took up most of the restaurant. It was loud, with people standing all over and children running wild. They ran out of calamari which was an ingredient in many of the things on the menu. Some of the food, the pizza came out cold. The restaurant should have been closed to the public with the number of people in the party if they couldn’t accommodate other customers. Poor planning on restaurant management.

Excellent dining experience for families or groups. A little loud for a date night on a Friday night but if you don't mind the volume, the food was excellent. Generous portions. Healthy options as well as classic Italian dishes and pizza. Friendly staff and great service. Definitely worth trying this new restaurant.
