Paninos was started in Colorado Springs in 1974 by Grandma and Grandpa Frasca with the hope of building a local favorite hangout. All seven of their children (including Trip, Marie’s dad) grew up working in the original store located near the Colorado College Campus in Colorado Springs. From day one the Paninos family has strived for consistency, quality, and genuine hospitality. There are now 3 locations in Colorado Springs, 1 location in Minnesota, and one here in Fort Collins, all owned and operated by different members of the Frasca Family. Paninos is a long lasting family tradition. We are a locally owned, vintage inspired, neighborhood restaurant where we strive to have every customer and client leave with the intention of returning soon. We are family friendly and welcome customers and clients to a casual dining experience.
