The food was outstanding and waiter was exceptional. He recommended a panino since it was the first time we had eaten at this restaurant. We were very impressed...the panino was definitely a good choice!

Wait staff was very friendly. Service was terrible. Server didn’t check back on drinks or if we needed anything. Forgot our appetizer. Didn’t bring us any garlic bread. Drinks were sub par. Food quality was like food service quality.

My food was a little burnt, but the biggest complaint is that the place was FREEZING! Even bringing a jacket did not help. Please warm it up a little bit!

I don’t know if it’s this whole COVID thing going on but the food tasted like it was soaked in salt

Lots to choose from on the menu. Staff is very friendly and all seem to enjoy serving despite the COVID restrictions. The Grinder was the favorite and finished off the meal with the Mud Ball flight and fresh coffee.

The Friday Prime Rib special is very juicy and tasty. My husband loves the pizza and it makes great leftovers the next day.

The food was good but quantity was less than in the past. I used to have enough to take the extra home but this time I just had enough for lunch.

Panino's has been a wonderful small LOCAL restaurant for many years and this east side location carries on that tradition despite the very challenging COVID-19 times. This was my first chance to get back in for a sit down dining with friends and I was very happy to see they are still trying to provide a good value to their patrons despite the ridiculous cost inflation and other restrictions they have been experiencing...but this is what I've come to expect from a quality small local business like theirs.
From this experience and in the past, the food is always well made, well flavored and in good portions to give a good value for the money. They have also maintained their happy hour pricing on many items including draft beer.
I appreciate the food and service value they provide and how they have handled serving their patrons during this time. I will be a patron for as long as they continue these values.
