Me and two girlfriends had an early dinner here on a Sunday evening and could not have been more pleased with our entire experience. We were seated early (and I forgot to tell the hostess that we had a reservation) and were delighted by the daily specials as well as the menu overall. We even received a tip from the chef confirming that the special appetizer that drew our attention, “Shrimp Tropicale,” was his person favorite. And, it did not disappoint! In fact, the entire meal through to the decadent desserts (Tiramisu + Dark Belgium Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream) was delicious. Additionally, the service was friendly & efficient, and the ambiance was lovely (the exposed brick and soft lighting make it very inviting). My friends and I are already planning our next gathering at Bettola.

Ww has never been here before and didn’t know what to expect but was surprisingly very good. I think they are known for their woodfired pizza but we decided to have Andres instead. We started with the Capreae salad and meatballs which went delicious. I had the fish special of red snapper and shrimp baked in the wood fire oven. The light tomato sauce was delicious although the portion size was a bit small. I was glad we had the appetizers. My husband & newphew had the chicken Parmesan which looked and tasted delicious. The chicken was a nice meaty piece, not pounded down too thin with a good crust and the sauce was also really good. I would recommend

What a FIND! In NYC for Thanksgiving, wanted a special dinner as we had never been to restaurant for Thanksgiving, and Bettola was terrific! Service, the food, the parings of wine, all way above expectations.

The food was excellent and had enough variety for the adults and kids in our large party. Gnocchi was light and fluffy and delicious, but needed the salt of the Parmesan cheese offered at the table. Very limited beer selection, slightly better wine options, but still somewhat limited. Restaurant is tiny and has a few too many tables, so it feels fairly cramped.

Enjoyed our meal very much before going to a concert nearby. The food was delicious. My husband and I shared the meatball appetizer which was tasty and I had the chicken penne as my entree which was very flavorful and just the right size portion. The restaurant is small and tables are very close together but it was fine. Maybe not ideal for an intimate occasion like an anniversary though.

We love Bettola, and go as often as we can. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and prompt, and it's a very convenient UWS location. The ONLY cavil I have - and it's a small one - is that they pack the tables a little too closely together. It's a very crowded space, usually pretty noisy, and difficult to move around in. But hey, that's New York, I guess. Anyway, we'll certainly be back!

The lasagna was cool in the middle. The waitress said sometimes they serve day-old pasta that they heat up. If I wanted leftovers I could have stayed at home. Other than that, it was OK.

Needed a carb fix for family friend who was running the NYC the next day. So where else, but Bettola? A couple of us were a little early, no problem: they sat us anyway. The recommendations were perfect, and the food excellent. Affordable wine list and reasonable prices for entrees, what more could you ask for? Finishing off with an obligatory yet exceptional Tiramisu completed the meal in resplendent fashion.

The food was not good. The pasta was overcooked and although it said "homemade" it tasted like store bought. The pizza was undercooked and doughy. The restaurant was not crowded and maybe that should have been a hint.

Fine. But kitchen closed at 10; our reservation was at 9:40pm. Wait-staff hurried us through our meal. Tomatoes on the Caprese were not ripe. I'm not a food connoisseur, and I could tell it was just decent.

A friend loves this restaurant and raves about the food so I went with her though Italian is not my first choice as a rule. The ambience was pleasant, we were greeted warmly and chose to sit at the sidewalk cafe on a lovely evening which was somewhat noisy. My big disappointment was the food. The eggplant Napoleon which I selected as an appetizer was so covered in red sauce and cheese that I couldn't taste the eggplant (one of my favorites) at all. For the main course I ordered the sliced steak marinated in spices with asparagus and mushrooms over fettucine. It was completely tasteless. Won't be back.

It was ok...not overly impressed. Homemade pasta was great. The wait staff was not. They were not attentive.. didn't bring water.. drinks... bread until asked and them trying to get a 2nd drink was impossible. Had a free glass of wine download..waitress argued that we didn't ask for it after we asked 2x! They made it seem like they were doing us a favorby serving us... wouldn't go back. But like I said..homemade pasta was good...and so was getting a reservation...which should have been telling...

Incredible restaurant with unique atmosphere, great service, and exceptional food. We tried their fish and it was amazing. I personally had a homemade pasta and you totally can feel that it was made from organic ingredients. Service was fast even on Friday night and meals were done exactly in accordance with our wishes. I have to recommend this progressive Italian restaurant to everyone who loves good food and like to visit charming places.
