Stefanino Panino, Brunswick East

MELBOURNE | The sandwich craze in Melbourne shows no sign of abating. One of the best new spots in town for a sandwich is Stefanino Panino, who are putting their mark on things by stripping things back to the bare essentials. That is, classic Italian paninis done right.

The hole in the wall panini spot is run by owner, and former primary school teacher, Stef Condello and his mum Diana. Mum takes the orders, Stef makes the sandwiches. It’s about brilliant bread from nearby Natural Tucker Bakery, the highest quality sliced to order meats from Thomastown’s Marchetti Fine Foods, and fantastic cheese from That’s Amore. An example of really letting the ingredients shine.

Go for any one of a number of ‘Stefanino Classics” or load up a roll with as many, and as much of, the fillings as you like. If you want some meats for home, they’re available and sliced to order.

To round things off, there’s Golden Brown filter coffee, and Italian sodas and juices.

In an increasingly crowded sandwich market, Stefanino Panino proves that sometimes (often) all you need to do is make simple food from the heart, getting the basics right with a smile.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
