Panino AL formaggio = panino DI formaggio = panino CON formaggio. Tutti sono correte.

I disagree, panino DI formaggio is not correct.

I've seen panino DI formaggio used, and if you google it you get a lot of results of pages using it. I'm no Italian native speaker though...

You need to google it on google.it though, American/English pages don't count :) I am an Italian native speaker, and to me it sounds off, but at the same time it is very possible that in some parts of Italy people would say that.

This sentence has been presented SO many times during my drills that I know what I'll be proficient at ordering for lunch when I get to Tuscany this summer!

My friend who is a native Italian speaker said that the polite way to order in a restaurant is to use the form "Vorrei" rather than "Voglio." mukkapazza, please weigh in on this, as I want to be polite when I get to Italy this summer :)

Yes, I am a native speaker and I think it's nicer to say "vorrei" rather than "voglio" when ordering in a restaurant. But it's not a big deal either way, in my opinion.
