About the restaurant
Panini Grill was founded by three brothers from Italy, eager to open an Italian family style restaurant in America.

We wanted a traditional family atmosphere, Trattoria or neighborhood place that offers large portions and a variety of homemade, home-style cooking, just like my Mamma used to make. "WERE MORE THAN JUST PANINI'S"

We'd love to welcome your group of 12 or more, please call us for availability.

Come join us at our home! Mangia!!

We were a table of 4. We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu portions were generous to say the least. Everyone enjoyed their food. Our waiter Caesar was great as were the other servers. Can't wait to go back to try other dishes on the menu.

About the restaurant
Pastavino translates to pasta & wine, the quintessential Italian experience, drawing inspiration from the traditional trattorias & enotecas throughout Italy. Michelin Star Chef Josh Laurano's menu focuses on modern interpretations of familiar Italian flavors, house made pastas, focaccia & secondi. We pride ourselves on seasonality, using local ingredients, and allowing them to be the soul of the menu - Materia Prima.

If you do not see your desired time or party size please email us directly at John@PastavinoSI.com . We do not put all tables online to allow for phone reservations and walk in's.

Please include all guests in your party including those who may be in strollers or high chairs.

While we love to celebrate life's special occasions with you, we kindly ask that you refrain from bringing balloons into our dining rooms.

We try our best to accomodate all requests and preferences, however tables located along the window are seated on a first come first served basis.

We were warmly welcomed immediately upon arrival. Our server, Brenda, introduced herself immediately and provided excellent service. She also inquired about food allergies and although we don’t have any, it was nice that she asked.
