Trattoria Pizzeria Panaretto in Fort Lauderdale Offers a Quick, Tasty Lunch for $9.99

This sunny Italian restaurant with exposed brick and a simple, spacious dining room offers a number of $9.99 lunch specials daily. For that price, you get a house garden or caesar salad with crisp croutons, a soda or iced tea, and one of a dozen specialty panini or Italian dishes like lasagna or pizza. We tried the stracchino and speck panino, which marries creamy cow's milk cheese (it has a mild mozzarella flavor) with a thin layer of juniper-smoked speck. The homemade focaccia on which it's made is crusty and airy with an appealing texture. Another Florentine-style sandwich had chicken breast, spinach, tomato, and goat cheese — the spinach was frozen, however. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and quick service means you can enjoy a sit-down meal and get in and out before your lunch break is up.
