Found this place by chance many years ago and every time while and Fort Lauderdale we go back. The owner is from Venice and it's always delicious. Love the homemade gelato too. Staff is always friendly and very helpful with suggestions too.

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.

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...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.
