Wonderful experience! My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious dinner outsides, the server was friendly, knowledgeable, and offered spot advice. We shared a starter, salad and a main, and all portions were just the right size for sharing. Look forward to a return visit.
Service was sloppy and inattentive. Drinks took 24 minutes and came after one of the entrees was delivered. Asked that entrees be delivered together and after our drinks. Entrees delivered right after drinks and cold because they just held the original one for the next one. Just trying to enjoy a low key night out instead of take out. I guess I’ll keep doing takeout.
Loved Bettola! Can't wait to go back! The Burrata was SO good!
One of the very best!!! Food is always great & love how they extended the outdoor patio. A favorite for sure!!!
Wow we were surprised by the food. So good! Definitely be back soon.

We had a reservation for two at Bettola for 8:30 pm. It was my boyfriend's first time and I was so excited to bring him there. Sadly, our service was pretty poor. We had two waitresses, neither of whom introduced themselves or gave us any information about the menu. Between the two of them our table was visited a total of 3 times and it was very clear they wanted us in and out. I am super bummed because we had made a reservation and were looking forward to a special evening.
Consistently wonderful service and delicious food and wine!
The food at Bettola is outstanding. The fresh flavors and effort put into the preparation blows you away. Our evening was spent on the patio space which was really lovely. Service was outstanding and on point with recommendations.
Perfect ambience on the patio for a nice dinner and wine. Loved the patio lights and fireplace. Happening enough to be fun but not loud and boisterous. And the food was amazing!
Salad was great as was the entrée. Dining room was clean and the server was very helpful. I look forward to eating there again next time we are in Birmingham.
Very good atmosphere. We sat outside and it was wonderful
Enjoyed hanging out with friends at Bettola’s
food was fabulous - still dreaming about the okra.
Food and service both excellent! Highly recommend the charred okra, truffle pizza, and tiramisu. Loved that the reservation system allowed us to select outside seating.
Perfect place for dinner and drinks!
Large patio allowed for separation of parties. Food was super yummy! Wonderful selection of cocktails, wine and beer. Service was a bit slow but the waiter was nice and apologetic. We will most definitely go back!
Food was good. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to enjoy my time in this place. We sat at the bar and the bar tender didn’t wear a mask, he was trying to talk with us in close proximity and for me was too much. We still in the middle of a Pandemic, I don’t feel comfortable going out yet, however and knowing that the restaurants and the small businesses need us I have been in a few places eating. This was the first time seeing a bar tender with a mask. Also we were close to the screen were they process the payments and a few employees arriving there took the mask off. Bad very bad.
Always a great meal at Bettola. Service atmosphere and wine list wonderful. They are doing a great job during this covid time. I encourage you to make a reservation and enjoy!
Food was great as usual!
Bettola was great! We loved sitting outside and enjoyed everything.
Outstanding as usual. Enjoyed sitting outside on the patio.
Excellent ingredients combined to make for a delicious dining experience. Our 2nd time back in a week and, it was just as good. Service excellent. Be sure to sit at the bar and say “HI” to one of Birmingham’s best bar tenders, Tyler.
Excellent food and experience. For the price, some of the best food in Birmingham. Will go back and definitely recommend to others!
Fabulous pasta and pizza! As good as ever.
Wonderful food, awesome downtown atmosphere, overall great experience.
The food was overpriced for what it was. Nothing special and could of prepared the same quality at home. Originally no hostess or anyone to greet us for over 15 minutes. The reservation was messed up on their end - booked for outdoor seating but they did not go by reservations so no outdoor seating left.
Great food and ambience, the outside sitting was nice.
This was a very good experience with fresh, thoughtfully prepared food, utilizing local ingredients. Our sever was very knowledgeable about the menu and paid just the right amount of attention to us. We sat outside and it was pleasantly comfortable. The tomato salad was outstanding. The grouper was very tasty and fresh. The 4-cheese pasta with homemade sausage had a rich, homemade flavor. Good beer and wine list.
James may be the best chef in Birmingham. The tomato salad was phenomenal. I had the snapper and the accompanying succotash was the best I’ve had.
Wonderful outdoor meal. Great patio, food and service. Loved the charred okra appetizer.
Always great food and great atmosphere! Love the patio!
Excellent socially distanced dining experience out on the patio. Food was excellent as always.
amazing waiter i wish i could remember his name. it was my 22nd birthday & they made my experience very enjoyable! great food, drinks, & atmosphere!
Dinner on the patio was great! Our meal was perfect, everyone wore masks, and we felt safe the whole time. Highly recommend, we will definitely be back soon.
always a joy to dine at Bettola. So glad it survived the pandemic when so many great restaurants have closed.
Food was delicious!! Best italian food I have had in Birmingham by far. Such a nice atmosphere as well!
Always good with fun cocktails, great wine and outstanding food.
The food is always delicious at Bettola's. The outdoor seating makes it a place that my husband and I can dine as we try to stay safe during this pandemic.
Really good drinks! Service was good. Got the calamari which was overcooked and very fishy tasting. The other appetizer which was a bread and mozzarella dish was really good. Entrees were 2 pasta dishes one of which was incredible, and the other was just okay. Pretty pricey overall for what I would characterize as a mediocre experience. I’d be willing to give it another shot though as I continually hear good things from others, so maybe our experience is an outlier.
We were seated outside of the covered area which was fine, but, we did not receive much air flow from the fans that were in the covered area.
The patio is lovely, but, at the end of our meal (luckily) it started to rain. I think perhaps some vines or some type of planting over the pergola could provide some shelter during the rain or perhaps table umbrellas since Bham is known for lots of rain.
