Welcome to Paninos Italian Restaurant!

Welcome to Paninos Italian Restaurant!

We are a locally owned and operated Italian restaurant that has been proudly serving the World Famous Panino sandwich, fresh pasta, and oven baked pizza to Colorado residents for over 30 years.

Since opening the first Panino’s in 1974, the Frasca family has continued to perfect the Panino sandwich, a gourmet creation made with the finest garden fresh vegetables, top quality meats and cheeses, and then baked to a golden brown, rolled, sliced, and served to you piping hot. Choose from our many specialty Paninos, or create your own signature Panino from our list of mouthwatering ingredients.

In addition to the Panino sandwich, we are proud to offer a large variety of traditional Italian dishes, including one-of-a-kind incredible pizza, pasta dishes like chicken or shrimp alfredo pasta, manicotti, lasagna, shrimp and scallop scampi, and fresh salads. Check out our full menu (above) for descriptions of all our delicious dishes, and be sure to save some room for dessert!
