    I had my rehearsal dinner for my wedding at La Panetteria Restaurant and I could not be happier with the event. The owners, Fernando and Hector are super friendly, they schemed the restaurant layout exactly how I wanted it and they kept … More the wine flowing in addition to the delicious pasta. They even included music to create an authentic Italian atmosphere.

    We truly enjoyed our meal here. Very tasty, authentic Italian and Argentinian cuisine. We look forward to returning. We deducted one star because the person at the front looked at us and seemed to assume we didn't have a reservation … More which we did have. That was a bit awkward. But after that odd encounter, the evening was wonderful.

    Amazing place! Great food and several vegan options. They even have it separate on the menu! The funghi risotto is to die for!

    I'm not the type of person to leave reviews in restaurants, but the service, food, and hospitality in La Panetteria was so great that I just had to review it. Great experience and great Argentinian/Italian food. My gf is Argentinian … More and she loved it..

    There were 21 people in our party! Nobody was in want for anything. The staff was on top of everything. Thank you for making our dinner so memorable.

    I have always loved this little restruraunt. It is so quintessentially ITALIAN. The food is wonderful, and the waiters and people who work there are really lovely. I'm so glad Bethesda MD still has nice places like this. I'm REALLY … More glad that, even though the Pandemic is ongoing, La Panetteria is open and a great little getaway for the romantics out there. 5/5.

    I went for dinner today with four friends and we had a great experience, the food was outstanding and the service friendly, the place is lovely. This was my second time and I am already looking forward to the third one.

    Their "milanesas to-go-box" caught my attention. So I decided to give them a try. When I got there I was lucky to meet both owners, Chef Ettore and Manager Fernando. What a nice pair of people! We talked about a bunch of Argentina … More topics and I ended buying "a bit of everything". Let me tell you, the food quality and the flavors were TOP NOTCH. You should try them, too! Empanadas, facturas, milanesas... So yummy!!!

    Great cocktails, attentive service, and delicious food! I would highly recommend their risottos cooked perfectly with lobster, shrimp, or veggies and well seasoned. You always know authentic Italian when the meal is finished with free limoncello. … More Can't wait to return
