Panino Caffé Restaurant, Hunter Valley Restaurant

Our Hunter Valley Restaurant

The style of the restaurant is intimate, elegant and yet, has a feeling of visiting a friend’s country house; warm, open and overlooking the very beautiful Grays Inn garden at the rear. People sip and sup…. and gaze out, mesmerized by the quiet lush, garden’s presence. Join us here for an Italian inspired meal in Wollombi.

In 2006 Bruno and Victoria headed for what they intended as retirement to the quaint and historic village of Wollombi NSW. Perhaps the softness of the surrounding hills; the green oasis, the charm of the valley and the heart that palpably beats here, worked its charm on them – PANINO was born. It is nestled into the beautiful sandstone building of Grays Inn, adjacent to the much acclaimed Noyce Brothers cellar door.

PANINO operates with a breakfast and lunch cafe menu five days a week, with an a la carte dinner on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

“to cook with heart
an ethos in abundance at Panino
to cook with a respect
for the produce
to be present
in love and detail
to give nurture and
necessarily receive
nurture in return”
