I cannot recommend Panino's highly enough. The food is a cross between fine dining and hearty, homestyle cooking like Nan used to make, and the atmosphere reflects it. This place welcomes everybody - Prince to pauper - and it's relaxed atmosphere makes the experience such a pleasure.
When I went for the first time, I was surprised to see Sausage and Mash alongside fine dining menu items. Once it arrived on my plate, I understood why. This was the most delicious pork and fennel sausage I had ever had in my life, and the portion was huge! I was so impressed that I went back the next day for lunch (and again that night to dinner!).
Folks, let me tell you - you have not experienced pizza until you've had Panino's pizza. Classic italian-style crust with the perfect amount of crunch and chew. And the aged beef steak on the dinner menu was perfectly cooked, simply dressed, and the most beautiful piece of steak I have ever eaten. Try it rare - medium rare at most. You won't regret it.
All I can say about this place is wow. To have such a gem hiding in the little shire of Wollombi is almost unfair. Do yourselves a favour and book a table. 10/10
