La Panetteria has been a Bethesda Landmark for more than 35 years. It has won accolades from food critics and many loyal customers for its superb menu and impeccable service. Cozy, old-fashioned Italian restaurant, serves both northern and southern Italian specialties, with homemade pasta, fresh seafood, veal and chicken dishes and best white pizza in the area. The restaurant invites diners in with a tree shaded street front awning, and an Old Italy atmosphere enhanced by a sunlit indoor atrium with graceful hanging baskets and period paintings on white washed stucco walls. The ceramic tile floor and white tablecloth complete the ambience of a true trattoria. The menu is extensive and features a wide variety of classic Italian dishes, plus daily specials like risottos, veal shank, seafood lasagna, rolattini and Zuppa. If you have a favorite Italian dish you will find it on the menu. La Panetteria means ‘the bakery’ in Italian and all the bread is baked fresh daily.

"Every return to this Bethesda restaurant staple continues to be very special. Arrived a bit early but reservation was honored. Matre'D and waitstaff very friendly and attentive. Food as always was prepared and presented expertly. I had a veal-chicken dish with mozzarella and spinach stuffing. Ordered extra vegetables in lieu of pasta, and they were prepared very nicely. Never hesitate to meet friends here- constantly great food."
