  • Paninoteca Italiana

    So chintzy with the ingredients

    The only way they could have had LESS olive pesto on this sandwich would be to put none on it. It's ALL BREAD! and it cost me 7.50. I could have bought a roll for 75 cents.

    Hot, fresh panini!

    Their panini are the best you'll find in Grand Central -- basil, tomato, mozarella with black olive pesto -- yum! (The version with prosciutto is also good...) The tortellini pasta is also rather tasty and it's all so much cheaper than other options in the food court.

    Great for what it is -- and great value!

    The sandwiches here are exactly what they purport to be and nothing more or less...had no problem with the service (it is a takeout sandwich place after all) and they were very nice about delivering up to our offices with no service charge. Keep up the good work, Rita and Co! Only quibble is that they need to update their online menus here and on the Grand Central website.

    Not so great. I was in Grand Central and needed to eat so I figured I would try Paninoteca Italiana. I was in the mood for comfort food so I had spaghetti and meatballs. The food was not offensive, but it wasn't particularly good either. The pasta was very overdone and tasted sort of Chef Boyardee ish. I think that 7 year olds would like it very much. In addition, they didn't have any bread when I went which was disappointing since I like bread with pasta. In addition, the woman at the counter wasn't unfriendly, but she spoke very little English and didn't seem to understand a word I said. It took hand signals to indicate that I wanted a small serving. When I asked for a medium originally, I was told that I couldn't have it but no reason was given until I pushed for one. It turns out that the medium size is for other items, which is cool, but let me know and don't just tell me that I can't have it.
