Fantastic dinner experience.
Both octopus and scallop appetizers were superb. Our beef tenderloin was prepared just right. Attentive service complemented our excellent dinner.

Fabulous and fun
La Bettola is a great neighbourhood gem not to be missed. The food and service are always great. If you aren't sure of the wine you might want all staff seem to know what to pick for you and it always turns out great.

Met a friend for dinner to celebrate her birthday. Food was great - waiter helpful with wine selection. Mushroom and arugula salad is outstanding. Would definitely order again. Noise level a bit high. Pasta excellent; halibut very good.

Great homemade pasta and bread
This is a real gem, always packed and the food never disappoints. I have personally tried the pasta with veal bolonses, the lobster pasta and the gnocchi-all were fabulous. The bread is a true highlight, it is the best bread in the city! The lattes are also one of the best I have ever had, super creamy and smooth! A fantastic dining experience always, don't miss it.

The food and service here are always great - that's why we keep coming back. Best to reserve a table in advance if planning to go at the end of the week as it is a popular restaurant. Love the buzz and vibrant atmosphere. The Italian lessons in the WC are a nice touch!

Amazing food, okay service
Our server was grumpy after we asked to switch tables due to being seated at a communal table, even with a reservation, which I think is ridiculous. If a reservation is made one is not under the assumption that you'd be elbow to elbow at a narrow high-top table sitting on backless stools. As a walk-in patron communal seating is acceptable, but not with a reso.
Members in our party were disappointed with the rule about not making any changes to menu items, however, that does not bother me in the slightest as the food is outstanding.
I have been to La Bettola five times prior to this and always had outstanding food and service, so one time where the service was lacking will not detour me from continuing to frequent that restaurant.

An old reliable
Have been going to La Bettola since it opened and have never been disappointed. It is part of the Terroni empire and serves it well. Great service, wonderful wine list and food is always plentiful and good.

Worth the Wait?!
Excellent food and very energized! However, I made reservations for 12:45 but, didn't get seated till about 1:15. Didn't appreciate the wait but, enjoyed the meal.

Pre Massey Hall Dinner
We had a great time at Bettola; the staff was very accommodating and served us quickly to ensure we got to the theatre in time. The wine list is pretty good here. I love the atmosphere - it's busy but not overcrowded so they don't try to pack too many people into the space. The food is great. To start we shared the beef carpaccio and caprese salad - Italian staples done well. We both ordered the secondi off the daily menu. I had the bucatini with shaved truffles - it was delicious! My boyfriend had the tenderloin. We topped off our dinner with cappuccinos- it was the perfect pre-theatre dinner. On that note, I would go to Bettola for any occasion.

Food was excellent. staff
Food was excellent. staff was friendly. However, we were charged for a dessert that never came and for a bottle of wine that they were out of. Had to adjust the bill twice.
