La Panetteria

La Panetteria is an Italian restaurant located in Bethesda. 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."
