We made a reservation for dinner on July 03. On arrival at the restaurant we were then informed that the restaurant was closed for dinner due to July 04. This was extremely disappointing as we had arranged to have an enjoyable evening with friends.

The location of this place probably keeps visitors down. Given the location, it was quite expensive, $12 for a small pizza, $15-18 for a main course. Plus service and tips, it was quite pricey. And given that we, at one point, were the only guests,...More

My wife and I stopped in several times in the last few months sometimes just for a drink but when we eat there it's always very good. Kieth has been our bar tender/server and always does a great job, we will be back soon.

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.

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...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.
