I was so hopeful about this dineLA destination since other reviews praise it highly. I don't know why our experience was so dismal. To start, the waitress did not bring a dineLA menu until we requested one. We had chosen the restaurant specifically for it's dineLA menu and ordered accordingly. Nearly EVERYTHING was underseasoned, with the exception of the Tuscan Onion Soup. The pasta was overcooked, almost mushy. The salad was fine but completely unremarkable. The chicken in a balsamic glaze was tasteless. The appetizers were a little bit better but needed salt and overall the intense, rich flavors of Italy were nowhere present. Very disappointed, and I won't go back.

DineLA week- pre-set menu was very satisfying. Everything that was so fresh. Wine selection was great. There were some affordable wine selections although we ordered ours by the glass. We will return for sure.

The Salad's and the entrees were delicious! We had the Halibut and the Pasta Bolognese and they were both terrific! Also the Kale salad was truly wonderful

Had a great lunch at Bettolino! I was able to book a birthday lunch for my sister in law the day before. Their calamari is tender and crunchy; never had this good anywhere else. The Betto box is fun as you get to sample four different dish and it is pretty filling. We love the dark flourless cake too.. not too sweet and has an European sophisticated taste.

The food was absolutely wonderful. I had the lasagna lunch special and my husband had the Beto box special. Both meals were very flavorful and the portions for lunch were the perfect size. Highly recommend the salted Carmel mousse and ricotta cheese cake for desert. Definitely will be coming back. The services was terrific.

Nothing stood out, the food was average and for the price not a good value. When the best part of the meal is the soup, you know the food is mediocre. This was a disappointing Christmas Eve meal.

We are usually more positive about Betolini but this particular evening the outside tempratures hovering around fifties the restaurant was so cold and drafty that we had to put our coats on. The food was good as usual but plates were cold which ruined the food completely. Hope we have better luck next time.

Our server Tess was absolutely wonderful, and the food was delicious. For me personally, I would have preferred an opportunity for a quieter area but I get that some people love the buzz and energy. Nevertheless, it was very good and I’d highly recommend it.

We we travel up to the Redondo Beach area this restaurant is always on our list of must eat! The food is delicious and the service is very good. Don’t miss the meatballs served on their own individual polenta cake. The house bread and dipping olive oil is also wonderful and warm. If you like eggplant parmigiana it’s a large portion enough to share and so flavorful. I definitely recommend eating here.

This restaurant is a rare find in Redando area. Great service and lively ambiance. The food however, was quite a disappointment, bland flavors, overly sauced, and non appealing looking. However, Since the area has limited options, I still might return.
