#GivingTueday is a fantastic promotion at Bettolino’s Kitchen. Always mindful of community and giving back. For this Tuesday in May, proceeds are donated to NAMI. And as always appetizers, drinks and menu are full of deliciousness. Bettolino Kitchen is the best ♥️🙏🏽💚

This was my second time dining here.
They for us checked in for my reservation and seated us right away
Our server Anne took our drink orders and brought out fresh bread and oil.
It took us a little time trying to decide exactly what to order
We started with Arancini, soooo good
Then we also had the octopus starter that was soo flavorful and yummy
We ordered the Halibut, squid ink pasta with mussels, Brassato and the lamb chops

Every dish was literally cooked to perfection and the flavors paired soo well almost like their own individual tasting experience

We will be back as there are a few more dishes I would like to try

Service was great we were able to enjoy food and ambience without being hovered over
Five stars all the way around

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on Mother's Day. Service was surprisingly fast considering it was a holiday. Everything was delicious and service was attentive.

We sometimes eat for lunch or dinner at Bettolino and they usually have good service.
Last time we visited was Mother's day and had a reservation in advance.
They looked very busy and we had to wait more than 20 minutes to get seated.
One of foods we ordered was risotto, but it was very salty. I ordered the same one which I ate in April since I liked it, so I should have asked then to remake it.

From the hostess to the bill, customer service was top notch and the food was delicious. You forget that this little gem is in the Vons parking lot on a busy street but once inside the patio, you forget that you are adjacent to the Vons parking lot. The menu is robust as are the flavors but the pasta is simply divine.

My biggest disappointment was that they took my favorite thing on the menu off. It was their non-traditional version of eggplant Parmesan. I can get the traditional breaded version at their main restaurant Gaetanos any day.

I had lunch today with two of our wonderful donors from Torrance Memorial. The food was great to people ordered the Bettolinos box and I had the Insalata Mista with salmon. Cooked well but really what made the experience was our server Rebecca! She gets two 👍 👍 She stop by to refill our drinks and check on her several times. Bread was brought promptly and meals were great.

Food was excellent, service was okay- server seemed rushed/ overwhelmed. Ambiance was not great as we were in the parking lot but that’s covid for you! Overall very good experience.

We have eaten here each Tuesday for a month and enjoyed the food, wine, dessert and service each time. As an added bonus, Tuesday’s a portion of the tab is donated to a selected charity or cause. It’s a win-win!

This was my first time back in over a year

I liked how much space there was inside...not crowded or noisy

The food and service were excellent

My halibut dish was the best fish dish I've had in a long time

Loved it

Everything was delicious and Richard was the best waiter we have ever had! He was professional, efficient and very polite.

My only suggestion is that we try to eat very healthy and we would eat out more often but the salt content is very high, especially on the salmon with faro which is beyond delicious, any way to reduce the salt?!
thank you,

Always enjoy our meals at Bettolino! We sat outside due to Covid concerns, so the ambiance rating is lower than if we ate inside. Also that is why the noise level was low! Despite the Covid accommodations, the food and service remain outstanding!

Halibut amazing- Bolognese very good- Brussels Sprouts good; Hearts Palm needed more hearts- Server rushed us from start with no hospitality to point where I had to say something; no management presence on floor- great food runner. Tent did good job keeping out cold, but suggest some plants or something to warm up room. Suggest management reads Setting the Table by Danny Meyer.
