La Bettola Italiano
Small initimate dining; food super good, setvice a little slow
Consistently excellent food and service. Highly recommended.
GREAT RESTAURANT! My cheerleading team and I were in town for a competition and we saw this place on open table and decided to go because the prices were good. Highly impressed!! Food portions were huge and the man who owns the restaurant was SO NICE! 10/10 recommend
The staff was wonderful! We had 12 people in our group and they handled it great.
Thanks to it being Super Bowl Sunday my Mom and I were the only ones there! So, naturally we had great service and a very quiet meal. The menu choices were more than ample and we ended up with a medium (12") Pizza Primavera and Chicken Alla Nonna. We started with very hot loaf of bread which we enjoyed with the olive oil provided. The pizza is thin crust (which WE liked) so thick crust people be aware. The taste combo of the toppings was very good. My chicken was well prepared and had lots of artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and capers (the larger ones). The ziti was also cooked well and the light tomato sauce was just right. We would definitely return for another meal here.
Excellent food. I had the pesto and a cannoli. Will be here for Italian whenever I come to DC
The service was solid although the restaurant was not crowded and seemed to be training new help. The staff was courteous and attentive.
This is a solid value although you will get some uneven food quality for the value. My bread was hot and appeared to be homemade- great. You could dip it in the virgin olive oil set on the table. The veggies appeared to be frozen broccoli and spinach that was reheated. Not the end of the world but also not the highest quality fresh vegetables that other restaurants provide. I had chicken Florentine and a half carafe of Chianti. Good table wine to accompany the meal. They made a fresh brew of coffee to finish the meal. I would return for every day dining.
Went in with high hopes and made a special point to try this place out. This restaurant is not owned by Italians anymore. Despite few people there, the server looked like she was doing us a favor. She spent most of her time on the phone chatting and only came by one time to check on us (only three tables were occupied). The salad was wonderful, but the entrees were bland. My veal was fine, but the clams and pasta were in a watery soup. Yuck. We had to ask if they had dessert. Yes, she said, but they were not make in house. We had two blah tiramisus. With a carafe of house red wine, the bill was $140 for three, so not cheap.
Exceeded our expectations. My wife is from Northern Italy. I’ve had a difficult time finding Italian restaurants in the DC/VA area she likes. She thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. It’s also kid friendly with a nice but simple kids menu. We’ll be back for sure!
The restaurant was very cute and cozy. Very quiet and we were able to enjoy the food and our conversation. I was a bit disappointed with the dessert. My tiramisu was frozen. Other than that, my shrimp linguini was salad was delicious. The tomato sauce is homemade and light.
In town for motorcycle ride (Rolling Thunder) relaxing meal at a good price, located near other bars and hotel. We will return next time we’re in DC pentagon area
What a terrific spot. Food is on point, service perfect. Doesn’t look like much from the outside, but is a hidden gem.
I would recommend with reservation. The food was good but not great, creative or memrable. the offereings are many and perhaps the pizza subs type items were better. Nicer atmosphere than your typical pizza palor but not the dinner menu i was expecting. No real wine selections. Just an unknown house red, white, blush or chianti was available.
Although the bread was the best part of the meal and the salad was okay, the main dish was really bad. In fact, this could be the worst veal parmigiana I ever had. Firstly it was not a piece of veal. You had to search for the medallions which were buried in massive amounts of cheese, sauce and breading.
The service was prompt and the prices were reasonable but what is the good of it if the food was lousy.
Maybe we should have stuck with the pizza but then we should have gone to a local pizzeria.
Food and Service were excellent. I enjoyed the lobster ravioli and my 9 year old had the tortellini. Perfect size portions. The fresh bread is excellent!
Took a large group here for a business dinner and had a great experience. Food was outstanding and prices were reasonable. Service was attentive.
Excellent. Food was delicious, service attentive. Would return in a heartbeat.
The place is small and unassuming, but the food is absolutely fabulous.
Good service, food nothing special and no wine selection, only house wine available.
Friendly and professional staff.
Tomato sauce was a bit too watery.
Overall good experience and I would return.
Very pleasant, clean quiet atmosphere, limited seating. Good flavors and portions.
Great place , nice portions and great service!
An absolute winner, small restaurant in size but dont miss this gem!
Fabulous food! Very attentive service.
Very nice Italian place with good food and reasonable prices. Better to bring own wine due to
Limited wine choice but the Italian wine available is also good for the price. Recommend the large sampler and the manicotti.
La Bettola Italiano was a wonderful place to have a very good meal with friends. The host was very attentive and made excellent meal suggestions to both of my friends.
All of the food was excellent... from the warm bread with olive oil to the main courses ...mine being the lasagna.
Great food, reasonable prices, excellent service.
We will definitely be returning on a regular basis!
Thank you La Bettola!!
This is a modest restaurant with excellent service. Unpretentious yet cozy, i went there for a meal on a business trip and was pleasantly surprised. Fresh hot bread, followed by the entre, also fresh and hot.Reasonably priced.
Cute and cozy place. Reasonable prices. Service was very attentive and friendly. Food was ok but I've had better veal parm.
Great friendly service. Food was very tasty and served promptly. Staff was very professional and eager to provide above par service.
An very intimate Italian restaurant, with very good food, reasonably priced, with good attentive service.
Staff not Italian but food was. Very nice staff. Not crowded. Quiet. In a row of bars and restaurants that fit the neighborhood. All around good!
The food was outstanding and so reasonable! Would definitely go back if we visit D.C. again!
The food and service was good. There was some strange music playing in the background that was probably more enjoyable to the staff than for my wife
The service was excellent, food just mediocre. We were the only people in the restaurant and were treated very well by the wait staff. Prices were good, and portions were large. The bread was outstanding.
They were closing when we arrived at the scheduled time.The owner did offer us a free pizza to go, however.
Nice place to visit while in this area.
I found this restaurant via a menu placed in our mailbox and I was hooked. This restaurant has everything! While some dishes seem just "put together" with a few standard ingredients, the late night hours and delicious pizza redeem my review. The cute building with a patio that extends onto the sidewalk gives an openness to the view from any table. I plan to try more menu items to find the real gem. But the pizza.....
friendly inexpensive unpretentious neighborhood Italian/ pizza restaurant. Not elegant or trendy but very decent place.
Took a group here for lunch - the place is small, but the food was really good, and reasonably priced! Would recommend this to others!
That was my first time at this restaurant and I loved it. I had a Living Social deal and they were very cooperative and professional. I enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely go back again!
