2 Beers for $5 Happy Hour – Not to mention some amazing Italian panini sandwiches. Friendly staff, soccer is always on, and a good atmosphere with a couch in the front.
Dreaming of Panino – For years I lived just off campus and got my Panino fix at least once a week. Their sandwiches aren't heaping deli monstrosities; they are a just a perfect balance of really good, fresh flavors. Anything with the aurora sauce should make you very happy. Now I live in Brooklyn and wish they would open an annex here. This is where the foodies are; come!!
Awful Customer Service – I just waited FORTY FIVE minutes for a sandwich at this place. Evidently, they "skipped over" my order, but didn't even apologize when they realized their mistake. Moreover, for this experience, I got to pay over $7 for a sandwich with barely anything in it. I'm still hungry. If you crave a similar experience, by all means, Panino Sportivo is the place for you. If you're actually hungry, go somewhere else.
Good place to hang out. – It wasn't very crowded the Friday night we went there. However, the food isn't the cheapest around. My friend got a piece of bread with nutella for over $4.00.
The mocha espresso I had wasn't the best either and wasn't the cheapest. But the athmosphere is relaxing and a good place to chat with friends.
I can't say much about the food because we didn't get any sandwiches/entrees.
Luscious Italian Sandwiches – These sandwiches are juicy and delicious. I'm addicted to the "Paola" with aurora sauce. And the vibe is very cool - crowd is nice mix of Europeans and Columbia students.
