Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at La Panetteria in Bethesda.

With a menu of authentic Italian dishes, La Panetteria serves up cuisine and daily specials capable of pleasing any discerning palate. Using fresh ingredients, the resident culinary masters are happy to create homemade pasta, pizza, and traditional Italian specialties such as petti di pollo parmegana (breaded chicken dusted with cheeses and served in tomato sauce, $17.95). While enjoying melanzane alla florintina (sliced eggplant stuffed with spinach and ricotta, $13.95), relax and dine under the vaulted, beamed ceilings in an atmosphere evocative of an authentic Mediterranean villa, complete with ceramic-tile floors and paintings whose eyes follow diners' every move. The sunlit indoor atrium with exposed brick walls and colorful murals is ideal for a quaint lunch, and the candlelit main dining room is well-suited for romantic dinners or a romantic reunion of your high school fishermen's club.

  • If you are looking for first-rate Italian food in an intimate setting, this is the place. From the moment we entered we knew we had found a gem. The pasta is fresh, the sauces perfect, and the portions and pricing reasonable. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. – An OpenTable User who reviewed on 01/01/2011

La Panetteria

Resting in the heart of Old Italy for more than 25 years, La Panetteria features white stucco walls, ceramic-tile floor, and hanging baskets that make it resemble an Old World eatery. Guests seated in the restaurant's indoor atrium enjoy a sunlit dining atmosphere as they savor the freshly baked bread and northern and southern Italian dishes placed before them atop checkered tablecloths. The subjects of the restaurant's period paintings look on enviously as diners dig into homemade pastas, milk-fed veal cutlets, and piping-hot pizzas. All of La Panetteria's entrees are carefully prepared to order, with any dishes not meeting patron's exact instructions taken to the street and thrown into a passing convertible.
