We love this restaurant! The food is wonderful, the staff is thoughtful and well versed in what the offerings are and we appreciate the various nights during the week that offer special discounts. We are also very sorry to have Bettolino's close right now even though we understand what Covid is doing to us. The chef was also kind enough to share the Brussels sprouts recipe with me!
Can't wait to hear that they are open again!

We wanted to go out to eat before the outdoor eating closed again. Bettolino's is very good. We had the Monday night special which includes a starter, 2 appetizers and a cheesecake dessert. My husband had the taglietelle with a bolognese sauce which was excellent. I had the eggplant dish which was very tasty but a bit too cheesy for me. The mixed salad was very good as was the cheesecake. The waitress said the wine would be $3 since it was still Happy Hour but we were charged $7. Overall better than average Italian food. The bread was great, too! I would rate it 5 stars but I have to compare it to some great restaurants in NYC which were probably pricier but definitely better.

Betallino's maintains their excellent level of quality and service amid the strains of the pandemic. They've created a clean, safe environment for outdoor dining. We opted for an open air table and the heater was perfect to control the bit of chill in the air. Brussel sprouts appetizer was on point (left off the croutons), Beet Caprese was excellent and our main entrees were perfect. Thank you so much for making our first dinner out since March comfortable a delicious!!

I love the food at Bettolino & have ordered delivery. Last night I took my friend there for a birthday dinner. I was a bit hesitant because of the Covid issue.
The sidewalk had string lights, tables were spaced, our server was first notch, & our dinner was delicious!
We shared the fig salad, I ate the halibut & my friend ate the chicken. Yummy! My friend even received a birthday treat. Thank you Bettolino for never disappointing!
Only negative was headlights from cars in the parking lot.

Perfect spot for a "big" birthday dinner for my brother--creative cocktails, wonderful appetizer, excellent pasta with lobster. Short ribs, salmon, and branzino were all lovely, as was the Supertuscan wine. Semifreddo dessert made for a perfect ending.

Outstanding food and service. Very safe outdoor environment with tables far apart, plastic dividers between tables, and heaters to keep the customers warm and comfortable. Our server Mark was very attentive. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner in these difficult times.

Dining is outdoors on the sidewalk. Under the circumstance, everything in well done. Tables are at least 6 feet apart. Plastic screens between most. Service is excellent. Food is great. Some road noise, but not bad.

The food here is incredible, and the service is amazing. Authentic Italian handmade pasta with amazing flavor profiles. You can’t go wrong with the meatball appetizers, the lemon and spinach tortellini , and for dessert you HAVE to have the salted Carmel semifreddo. My family and I love the chill ambiance and this is now one of our go-to family dinner spots!

Bettolino's was fantastic! Even during this epidemic time, the service was excellent! Food is always very, very good! And sitting outside (even though it's in front of their restaurant in their parking lot), they had umbrellas, heat lamps (it was a cold, drizzly night). I give them a 10+!!!

I met up with some friends for an outdoor (the only kind available during the pandemic) dinner. Although the location overlooked a parking lot, it was really nice. There were dividers in between tables, heat lamps overhead (it was California chilly) and the servers were protected with masks and face shields.

The food was fabulous and everything at the table was prepared perfectly. My beet Caprese salad and scallop with risotto main course were fabulous, as were the tastes I had of my companions' meals. Service was impeccable - multiple people ran out the meals so they would be served at the perfect temperature, everything was efficient without being rushed and it was a wonderful evening out.
