There were three of us who went to dinner. We ordered three different pizzas and took half of each of them home. They were still delicious heated up the next day... The variety of pizzas is impressive. The prices are reasonable for their quality and generous toppings. We happened to go on Tuesday night, which was fortunate because they have... More

The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff is knowledgeable and attentive. Keith ("like Keith Richards!") is the best, most gracious server. He is full of suggestions that get your tastebuds popping before you've taken your first bite of the food! The food is so delicious, we have eaten at Panaretto both of our first two nights in town.

Fantastic Food and staff. Truly a hidden jewel! Loved the food from the Brussel Sprouts (you have to try them!) to the incredible pizza to the OMG Lava Cake! Every bite just got better. Keith, the waiter, and Warren, the chef, made our visit so wonderful! Wished we lived closer so we could go back!

The Spanish menu items include tapas and sangria, of this fusion restaurant. The Italian dishes include pastas and pizzas. This evening I had the vegetarian pizza. It had a thin crust, which I like, and was loaded with veggies. It was very tasty. I'd order it again. Service was very good. The price was reasonable. The ambiance was attractive and... 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.
