Description: Panaretto is proud to offer delicious italian food in East Fort Lauderdale.Established in in 2008, this is a REAL ITALIAN RESTAURANT AND PIZZERIA. Panaretto has always received recognition and praise for the quality of ingredients, the service and the satisfaction of its customers. Our kitchen uses the freshest ingredients for the preparation of our food,including homemade pizza dough made daly,with the best selection of Italian and American flours,fresh pasta and desserts. Panaretto is the name of the wooden serving plate. It is a traditional serving plate in the Venice area, usually to serve polenta. Our pizzas are served on the panaretto to make the process of cutting the pizza easier and to preserve the crust by eliminating the condensation that a common plate generates.

picked this restaurant because it was central for a number of folks and it seemed to be favorably regarded on trip advisor. our experience was top notch. the staff is very friendly and took time to explain details about sizes and content of various dishes on the menu and the special board. our party had a good variety of dishes - the eggplant parm and special polenta appetizers were outstanding. wines by the glass were very nice. all of our entrees were creatively conceived and carefully prepared to order. and then there was the surprise dessert - a calzone made from panaretto's pizza dough, stuffed with nutella and ricotta - wow - not overly sweet and very satisfying. we will be back!

We live in Ft Lauderdale and have been going to Panaretto regularly for two years. My colleagues recommended this place for their fantastic pizzas and we totally agree that they are the best in town. We have also tried some of their dinner specials and they are also very good.

Staff is always very friendly and it has become my family's favourite place for a 'Italian night out'.

This restaurant is located at 1331 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale, FL. If you are planning to stay in Fort Lauderdale or driving through, I would highly recommend that you stop by the Italian restaurant. Their sauces are excellent. The pastas are homemade. The bread they use for sandwiches are great. They are light, crispy and very rustic. I highly recommend that you try the following:

1. Panini sandwich with pesto chicken. So light an tasty.
2. Fettucini Amatriciana
3. Spaghetti with chicken pesto

Service is very good. They are located in a little strip mall. Try lunch or dinner.

Prices are a bit high, but the quality is absolutely top notch.
