I was excited to see a vegan strawberry crumble on their menu so I decided to get it for takeout. Received a cold, liquid-y hodgepodge of strawberries and nuts which TBH looked like a bunch of frozen strawberries were allowed to thaw out with some walnuts! I was slightly appaled but more amused than upset by the audacity of this dish pretending to be a crumble. See pictures below for entertainment. I give this place three stars despite this because I have had decent risotto from them in the past and I am happy that they have an otherwise decent vegan menu. Just stay away from the soggy strawberry nut mixture
My family and I hosted a lunch for family and friends in memory of my Mom who passed during the pandemic. The team at La Panetteria was fantastic with attention to details (microphone for speakers, great menu options and ordering process for guests). Our guests told us they all loved the food, service, atmosphere and family oriented feel. We previously hosted a baby shower and anniversary dinner - both were equally great.
Went there last night after seeing great reviews, the staff was super friendly and the ambiance was really cute! We were a bit disappointed in the food. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The steak was decent, however the risotto was more cheese than risotto, I could not eat it. The bread was good, but could have been a generic store bought loaf. Hopefully it was a one off instance, but I probably wouldn't go back.
I hosted an engagement party for 20 people at La Panetteria and the experience was AWESOME! I tried booking several other places in the area before finding this gem and the La Panetteria staff made booking, planning, and payment so much easier than the rest. The food was great, my favorites were the zucchini fritters and the prosciutto and arugula pizza. The service and dining area were super welcoming and felt like our own little slice of Italy. Highly recommend, especially for family events.
Have not gone back since the change of ownership until yesterday. We were pleasantly surprised by the improvements. The food was great except the beef milanese, it wasn't bad but just not to the same standard of other dishes we ordered. The veal chops, the risotto dishes and the fried zucchini were excellent. The services were enthusiastic and the home made after dinner lemoncello was better than what I had in Sorrento Italy. With the escalating prices and declining services in Bethesda restaurants, this is a great place to have in our neighborhood. Their prices are fair.
