★★★★★ - Barbara C recounted her experience at Panini’s with this review: “We live in town, so we've eaten here many times. You can dine indoors, or outside
overlooking the waterfront park. I always order the Mediterranean shrimp and grits, which I highly recommend. The kids and myself also like the pizza.
