$ Italian Top 10 Recommended Editor's Pick Private Room

Opened in 1995 as the first true Italian/Sardinian cafe, we have served traditional Sardinian foods, but we’ve never stopped innovating and making exciting Sardinian themed dishes. We hope to take you away from today’s hectic lifestyle and offer you the chance to linger over dishes that use the finest and freshest ingredients, imported directly from Italy or locally-sourced suppliers.

Panos was always a favourite if ours but due to circumstances it had been a while before we could revisit. However, it returned to our favourite Italian in Newcastle and when we visit the City we will be there. Good delicious food.

We loved everything but there was just a couple of things - after ordering our main course it came to the table within minutes, which to some people if they are in a hurry would be great but we wanted to sit a little longer and enjoy our drink and the atmosphere. My dessert was beautiful but very small and I’d have loved a little more of the gorgeous ice cream that came with it, as it was put on top of my hot soufflé it had melted a bit before I could eat it, on the side of the plate would be better. But that just personal taste. We will be back though with friends.

Second visit, I am coeliac and was pleased with the attention to my dietary requirements. It would be good if a separate fryer was available for chips so I would be able to have them. (Contamination is a very serious issue. They did explain that I couldn’t have them for that reason). Enjoyed the food, will return
