About Pantrinis

Our Story

The story of Pantrini's begins at the turn of the 20th century in La Pieve Di Gravago Bardi, Parma, Italy, when Giuseppe Pantrini married Maria Bertorelli and had 2 children, Attilio and Angelina. Back then times in Northern Italy were hard so, with little chance of prosperity, Giuseppe and Maria decided to send their little boy Attilio, aged only 12, overseas to England. He was to work with his cousins Pete, Louis and Lina Bertorelli, whilst the rest of his family remained in Italy.

Although unable to speak a word of English, Attilio took to his new surroundings like a duck to water. He flitted between his cousins' ice cream factories in Newbiggin (the café still stands there today) and Whitley bay, regularly going out with their trusty horse, Jack, and the ice cream cart to sell ice cream. Over this time Attilio fell in love with the north east coastline and the ice cream business, learning the old fashioned art of ice cream making.

This restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, but being local we usually have take away. Lovely crispy, fresh fish and chips and especially like that they package in boxes and super paper carrier bags.

We had another delicious lunch today at Pantrinis, we took it out this time so we could walk along the seafront! The fish was fresh and so tasty as were the chips! The staff were super smiley and friendly despite the fact they had a queue out of the door and along the street, the whole coast was busy! Brilliant service! My favourite place for fish and chips!
