My family goes to Panino's almost every month. We enjoy the kid-friendly menu - pasta, chicken fingers, pizza. There signature dish is a Panino, which is a hot wrapped sandwich made from homemade thin pizza dough and stuffed with a variety of fillings. They have Paninos stuffed with fajita fixings, burrito fixings, spaghetti pie, and standards like chicken, broccoli, beef... More

I recently ate at Paninos and found the food very disappointing. The panino was cold and there was hardly any meat/ingredients in there. From the moment I walked in at lunch, the manager was rude and it seemed like it was short staffed. It took 10 minutes for server to get to my table, and because my panino was cold... More

Unedible food. I ordered the Buffalo Chicken panino and opened it up to find a couple pieces of cubed grisly chicken filled with ranch dressing. It was awful. I wanted to send it back, but the server never came back to check on us. The service was slow and rude. The Tavern Arden Hills and Nutmeg Brewery are much better,... More

This just looks like a low key place to eat in a strip mall. To my surprise, it was very nice inside and had excellent food. I had the lasagna which came with a salad and like half a loaf of bread, all very good. My wife had the mostaccioli which was also very good. Oh, we ordered a half... More

We visited Paninos recently and were very disappointed. The remodeled Paninos is drab and dull. The main dining room feels like a basketball court. The bar is not cozy like it use to be. Can go to Tavern Grill for bar experience (better food, prices,happy hour, service). The quality of the panino is not good and overpriced. Service is slow... More

I was recently at Paninos after the remodel and found that nothing has changed. The paninos have gone downhill. Cheap meat, nothing in it but sloppy dressing. The service was slow and unfriendly. Looking around at other servers, no smiles to be had. Seemed more interested in standing around talking at the front. Too many new restaurants in the area... More

All the panino sandwiches are very generous. You'd do well to share one. Chips and salad come with it - add a little ice cream for dessert and that's plenty. Service is friendly Often a wait on Friday and Sat. nights. kid friendly.

Awesome sandwiches but they are getting too expensive for lunch time if you ask me... Great place to go if you don't mind spending a lot for lunch... Salads with the sandwich are very small.

I really enjoy having lunch at Paninos. Great casual spot for friends or business associates. Almost always sit in the bar and now being remodeled, it's even better. The paninos are really tasty and filling. The tortilla soup is wonderful. I have at least a cup of that every visit.
