Italian Restaurant
A Corner Of Italy In Bethesda

La Panetteria is a resident fixture in Bethesda, serving the finest Southern and Northern Italian specialty foods. It has won accolades from food critics and many, many loyal customers as well. La Panetteria earned and kept the well-deserved title of Premier Italian Restaurant in Bethesda through its superb menu and impeccable service.

Sitting in the beautifully sunlit indoor atrium with its gracefully hanging baskets and period paintings makes one think of relaxing in an open foyer of a well-established restaurant in old Italy. The wonderful, rich aromas from the kitchen entice your taste buds out of dormancy and they spring to life in anticipation of the bounty to come.


The meal is prepared perfectly and a good bottle of wine enhances the pleasure. This is real life at La Panetteria! No wonder the Washington Jewish Week raved,
"La Panetteria has been around for 25 years. That's a record of impressive staying power in the heated up Bethesda dining scene."

Penelope Limoc of the Almanac Newspapers says, "There are no Chianti bottles on the walls, but there should be. It's that kind of old fashioned, cozy and casual Italian restaurant, complete with white washed stucco walls, ceramic tile floor and checkered tablecloths. From eggplant to veal, La Panetteria features the hearty and thick tomato sauces known as the signature trademark of the Northern Italian cuisine. La Panetteria translates to 'bakery' in Italian, so it comes as no surprise that all the bread is baked fresh daily. All this sumptuous food and home-like ambiance comes at very reasonable prices."

Customer Reviews
06/12/2013 I am remiss in not sending this to you sooner. I wanted you to know how very much our group enjoyed their experience at La Panetteria last Friday, June 7. I am told it was outstanding! From the mouth-watering and abundant food, to the remarkable service, to the welcoming hospitality, the exceptional value—ALL EXCELLENT!!! I’m hopeful there will be other NASP occasions in which to use or suggest La Panetteria. I have extended the idea to my employer about having La Panetteria cater our daytime August Anniversary celebration (alas--that decision not within my influence. To a person, our guests, representing 17 states including Alaska, were “over the moon” by La Panetteria. Please let your staff know how much their work—in every aspect—contributed to such a special and memorable evening that will be long remembered by our NASP Executive Council. My best regards, Katie
03/15/2012 My wife and I visited your restaurant in the last week of March. The food was excellent. It’s the service I am writing about though—I have eaten at many restaurants and I have never had better service. We were served by a lady (I wish I could tell you her name) and a gentleman who would not let my water glass ever go below half full. They were friendly and efficient, doting and smiling. I wish that I had time and opportunity to visit Bethesda more often just to patronize your establishment more often. Be sure, I will be coming back and recommending you to all my friends, clients and colleagues that either live in, or regularly do business in the greater DC area. Les Wilkerson
