Too bad this was my first time – I've eaten at many fine restaurants in my time and I have never would have thought I'd be as fulfilled as I was when I entered Panini Grill.... You walk in to scenes of Italy framed all around each wall and a ceiling that looks like it was sailed from Venice.. The waiter was almost better than the food, he was hysterical! We ordered salads named after Italian sights and finished off with some unbelievable Chicken Pizzaola.. it was huge, way too much after those salads we had.. there was a lot take home. Then we had dessert, DEEP FRIED CHEESECAKE!. Are you kidding? and it came on a plate that was dressed up with powdered sugar and stuff.. it was really a great evening,.. the waiter forgot my espresso until I reminded him about it, but made up for it with like 5 minutes of what seemed like written comedic material (Like Clark Kent being a bad reporter).. I'm making this a weekly thing with my girlfriend, headed out to Panini Grill.. I think the waiters names was Jake or Jack, something like that... all waiters should be that funny
poor food, nice atmosphere – i ate here once. it was just plain nasty. the place looks like a bensonhurst or bay ridge store front. it's very classy looking for a corner bistro. however, the food was terrible and i waited forever. i would not recommend it. the counter persons were rude. it just was a bad experience overall.
