Here, we honor the farm-to-table tradition by using locally sourced meats and produce to bring fresh flavors to each dish. Customer favorites include our gnocchi, pollo pomodoro, and our charcuterie selections. Our signature Neapolitan pizzas start with dough made from scratch using caputo flour flown in from Italy, which is hand-tossed and wood-fired in our authentic brick oven from Naples. We also feature a variety of house-made pastas, roasts, and sautés, and we offer craft cocktails and wines to pair beautifully with each dish.
We’re always pushing the envelope with our creative dishes and drinks at Bettola, and we hope to welcome you in our space soon.

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.
Great food from scratch! Incredible ambience outside.
Perfect delicious food great service
It wasn't what I expect. The pizza was soggy and burnt. Calamari wasn't fried but the sauce was good but calamari chewy.
Good food, not rushed. Lovely outdoor seating while still distancing.
Bietola pizza never disappoints
Overall the food was amazing. The AC was out when we went so with the oven for pizzas it did get hot. We unfortunately ended the night having the server spill the wine on our clothes so that was a bummer but overall good restaurant
The service, food and atmosphere are always excellent and it is obvious that Chef James takes it all seriously. If you have not enjoyed dining in the expanded patio, you are missing a virtual Italian Piazza.
Outdoors was great. Fans helped. Not too loud . Waiter was helpful with wine selection.
Food was delicious, service was fantastic - overall a 10!
Love the new patio dining set up. We always preferred to sit outside but with the expanded seating it is even better. Friendly staff with mask. Good social distancing table set ups.
Dinner was delicious! We always enjoy dining here. Outdoor dining was warm but Bettola has done a lot to make it as pleasant as possible.
Great food, service, and atmosphere! Seemed to do a great job with social distancing and staff wearing masks. Thank you!
Everything was great except the mosquitoes
Bettola is an incredible spot that has something for every appetite. The outdoor seating was socially distanced perfectly. The staff took lots of precautions and took very good care of us. if you're looking for a great date night location, this is it.
Great food and great service. Not cheap, but good food is generally isn’t. I’ve never had a problem paying for a good meal and that’s exactly what we got. Small plates were bigger than expected too. Enjoyed my first trip and will certainly be going back.
Wonderful meal outside! The atmosphere was perfect and the food was delicious!
Bettola always offers a very pleasing dining experience and the expanded outdoor dining venue is awesome. Nate, our server, was very attentive and responsive. The food is always high quality fresh ingredients with excellent taste and preparation.... just try the savory lasagna. Also, during the summer BHM evening, the cocktails are very refreshing.
My food was delicious as always but my moms pizza was a little undercooked in the middle.
Food and service were great, as always...but recent renovations have made the noise level even worse. Hoping they take some action to ameliorate soon; otherwise will think twice about frequenting Bettola. Had to shout to be heard by the person sitting next to me: conversation with the 3rd person in our party, across the 4 top, was impossible.
Bettola is one of our favorites! Consistently good
We booked outside seating- then when we got there they were not serving outside. Last few times i have been there- service not great. Food came out quick and was good.
Always a favorite, consistently good. Robert took great care of us.
Wonderful meal and service! Will be back!
Love the service and food! Charcuterie board is even better than bottega!
Great food. Great Atmosphere & Great Service!
We had a reservation for 5:45 on a Saturday. We were in and out in 40 minutes. Amazing service and great food.
Wonderful as always! One of my favorite places in Bham!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Delicious as always. Our waiter was excellent! Highly recommend.
Food was great, but our server was pushy and rushed us out the door. There were plenty of open seats and no one was waiting for a table so I am not sure what the rush was. Not sure I’ll come back to eat in, I’ll pick up where I can enjoy at my own pace.
I had the filetto and salad. Also had the antipasto and drinks. The steak was the best, cooked to perfection and great in presentation. The antipasto was also wonderful with all meats really high quality. I love the place, have been many times, but keep coming back because it's so good.
I absolutely love Bettola! For a quick bite or a special occasion, Bettola’s atmosphere and ambiance is inviting and delightful. I’ve been coming in pretty often lately and was welcomed with a hug from my favorite server! Highly recommend.
Great food and service. Will be back.
Bettola consistently provides a very good dining experience
The food was really good! Our waiter Josh was amazing!!
This was our second visit and second on Valentine’s Day! Always a great time with wonderful food with quick and friendly service. Shout out to Stan the Gm
First time here, and we’ll definitely be back. It was wonderful!
This restaurant is disappointing for a special occasion. First, bench seating!!!— where everyone is crammed together and you are forced to listen to your neighbor’s conversation, and they get the “privilege”of hearing yours. The food came out quickly, thankfully, because we were ready to leave as soon as we sat down. The server was very kind and gracious, but we did not enjoy the food. The menu was limited and difficult to read because of the small font and dim lighting. Overall, this restaurant is better for a quick lunch but not a special occasion dinner.
It was very well done! No complaints at all !! I recommend highly!
Always a terrific experience! We love this as our go-to every time.
