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."

May 29 2015 Hi Harry, We just wanted to thank you again for making our event so wonderful. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening, the food was outstanding and your staff was exceptional. We also really appreciated you taking the time to stop at the tables and check on everyone. We will definitely be back for dinner; the trip from our home in Leesburg is well worth the travel to La Panetteria for fabulous food, lovely atmosphere and such caring, attentive staff. All of our guests were still talking about the great rehearsal dinner at the wedding last night; some even said the food was better at the dinner than the wedding reception! Thank you again for a wonderful evening! Fondly, Tom and Judy Herdman

Thanks so much for a wonderful dinner experience tonight. The food was delicious and the service was amazing! Kind Regards, Yolanda Thomas, MPA Consultant
Thank you so much again. The party was a success. She was so surprised. Everyone, including myself was very impressed with the service that we received. The waiters were all superb, especially Stacy (I believe her name is). The food was fantastic and you were so accomodating. We REALLY appreciate everything. My mother will never forget this birthday, and I believe you have also created new customers that will continue to return. Sincerely
06/17/2014 Harry, Thank you and thanks to your staff for a really wonderful lunch this past Saturday. You were so gracious as we began showing up half an hour before expected, occupied your main dining room for FOUR HOURS, loudly sang a custom-written song (several times – sorry other customers!), and probably didn’t drink as much as you’d hoped. But please know we had an absolutely wonderful time, the service and the food were superb, and if we had to do it all again, we’d definitely turn first to La Panetteria. Again, thanks for making it such a wonderful reunion for 28 60- and almost 60-year olds. Your new biggest fan, Jane Verkouteren
