Food was quote good but the portions are extremely small. The main course was the size of an appetizer. Expensive for what you received.

I found the noise level off putting... not energetic. Toddlers running around and screaming unattended by their parents a total turnoff for a pre theatre restaurant. The pasta special of the day was dry and the pizza lacked cheese. And you refuse to make any substitutions. I agree with my friends that you are not worth a repeat attendance

The restaurant was nice and the food was okay but it was a little overpriced for what it was and for what else is nearby. There is only one bathroom.
I probably would not go again but there was nothing wrong with the place or the food.

Hi Rachel, thank you for your 4-star review. Our prices are reflected in the high quality ingredients that we use in every one of our dishes. Our olive oil comes from Puglia where there are fields of olive trees dedicated to Terroni, our flour comes from a third-generation family run mil in the Marche and our pasta is made in house fresh on a daily basis. Please know there are 4 bathroom stalls at La Bettola. We hope you consider returning for your next authentic Italian meal. Have a nice day :)

Dinner with friends before theatre. The server was aware we attending the theatre. She was attentive and mindful of our timeline. This allowed us to enjoy that part of the evening in a relaxed manner.
The food was a disappointment. Bread arrived - two pieces for four people. How does that work?
Suggestion to the kitchen or server - please advise diners at to how the kitchen prepares certain items. The duck arrived too rare for one of our guests. She asked if the kitchen could cook it a little more. The server took the duck away, but sadly it returned without much difference. Our guest left more than half of her meal on her plate. The Tiramisu was a huge disappointment. It arrived as a plastic container filled with whip creme and cocoa powder. Where was the mascarpone and the lady fingers soaked in coffee liqueur? Ahh, La Bettola, my memories of delicious meals in the past were not replicated this time around.

So many great restaurants in Toronto, it's unfortunate that this is not one of them. The concept is great, but the food quality of food is below what a good Italian restaurant should be. It's fair, just not good and definitely not great.

Terrific, inventive Italian food, nice wine list and service was relaxed but food. The reason for one less star than perfect is because the night we were there, the secondi's (not pasta or pizza) were a bit limited: halibut or tuna. If you're trying to avoid gluten, you must like fish to eat there...

The worst hostess you can ever meet. When my group arrived at the restaurant, the hostess did not greet or acknowledge us at all and seemed to be trying her best to ignore any customer that walked in. Our reservation was at 8pm and we arrived 20 minutes earlier and were hoping we could take the table if it was ready. This place was never hard to get a reservation, every time I try to book one there was always an available spot. And while we were walking to the restaurant, we also saw a big table that was empty which we were assuming it was ours as we were a pretty big group. I told the hostess we were early and asked kindly if we could seat in early. She gave me a straight face and the coldest response saying no, we could not come in early and the empty table we saw was for a reservation at 7:30pm. It seemed weird because usually a restaurant no longer holds a table after 10 minutes of the reservation. I also asked if we could take the table if nobody ended up coming, but she just rudely told me that there're a lot more reservations at this time and anyone that comes in right now has the priority over me to take the table. We didn't want to talk to her anymore so we just said we will come back at 8pm as we were early. When we came back at 8pm, we told the hostess that we're back for our table and she just nodded and walked away, in a even worse attitude she was holding before. Later on we found out she was actually leading us to our table, and guess what? The table she brought us to was the empty one we saw earlier. It was just very unpleasant experience, it was okay if we needed to wait for our table but with the attitude she gave us? That was just not right. I never wrote a complaint for any restaurant before but I really don't appreciate how we were treated. The food was mediocre as well so I don't think I will ever come back to this restaurant.

Our table was available right away with a nice window spot. Service was prompt and friendly. We all enjoyed the food; from the octopus appetizer to the pastas and pizza, all four of us were very happy with our meals! The wine selection is good although a little pricey. The beer selection is limited and needs improvement. Overall, a very positive experience.
