Panino is a chain that doesn't feel like a chain. Salads and sandwiches are uniformly excellent here. Shaded patio. Nice lunch spot when you need fresh food and a break from the sun.

Very friendly service! We had the Curry Chicken Salad and Chicken Pesto Sandwiches and they were amazingly fresh and delicious! We ate them al fresco in their courtyard and enjoyed people watching. Our server was very helpful and friendly and when asked, gave us tips on which Danish bakeries to try.

My sisters and I had lunch here while spending the day shopping, thinking we would grab a quick sandwich or salad and continue on our way. The food was so good that we lingered... everything was extremely fresh. My salad was very good. My sisters had the sandwiches, and they were equally good and fresh. Highly recommend a visit.

My wife and I would and did go out of our way for the sandwiches at Panino's. We would like to see them open some restaurants in the LA/Orange County area. My wife and I split a Chicken and Prosciutto sandwich on our choice of sour dough bread for $10.25. The ingredients included roasted red peppers, some type of leafy... More

I love this sandwich shop. I typically visit the Santa Barbara location. The Solvang location is tiny and there is barely any seating inside.

When in the area Panino is a quick stop for a yummy sandwich. With so many varietals it's a foodies delight. The wait can be long at times, but usually not more than 10 minutes. Seating can be a challenge at times, but you can always take it 'to go' and walk over the the local open 'park-like' areas in... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while passing through on our way to Pismo Beach. Solvang is a must stop to check out because of the Dutch influence. Its like being transported to Europe while in SoCal. Panino was delish! I had the chicken salad and harvest salad 1/2 combo. It was very filling but a bit pricey... More
