This place is absolutely delicious! Even the salads are packed full of flavor. A salad and one pizza is enough food to feed two people. The ambiance is great and the wait staff extremely friendly. You can't go wrong here.

A small nice looking trattoria. A corner of Europe right in a American town. Good service...good music... really good pasta and pizza. If you are European and home sick, this is one of the places to be.

The food is too expensive. We have been there many times. Used to be great and fast internet. Not anymore. Cappuccino is never creamy. Once we ordered blue cheese on top of our pizza and the cheese itself costs more than the pizza. They have lots of things to choose from.

Chicken Piccata at its best. Flavorful and the right portion. I have yet to have a meal I didn't like. Always great food...

We came here as a result of a Groupon offer to give it a go. We had apps and mains. We could have stopped at the apps, the portions are big. Food is excellent and great value. I will be back on my next visit to Ft Lauderdale.

Loved the chicken piccata and a shrimp special with a spicy red sauce also the half price bottle of wine made it reasonable

From our initial greeting to our goodbye salutation we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our server, Samantha, was wonderful. Her suggestions and descriptions were right on! Our shared caprese salad was just the right amount for the 3 of us prior to our meals. My brother-in-laws raviolis were delicious and he even let my sister and I have a taste! The... More

We were looking for a restaurant on a Saturday night when our first choices were booked solid. Located at the end of a strip plaza it was not busy. With the quality of the food it should be. There was a musician playing Italian music on a guitar. We ordered a six slice 12” Hawaiian pizza. The wood oven baked... More

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.
