The food was delicious-start to finish. Appetizers, entrees, and dessert. All were happy. The only thing we all didn’t love was the servers attitude. The place was pretty empty for a Saturday night bc of the COVID situation-understandable. We were doing our best to have some normalcy and keep businesses in business. But our server had such a snarky attitude with us for no apparent reason. She spoke condescendingly and quite arrogantly (especially when she attempted to pronounce the food in Italian properly-which she didn’t do successfully). She was nice to another larger table, but not particularly to us. We were still very nice to her and tipped her well, but it definitely put a damper on what would otherwise have been a perfectly pleasant evening. Would like to see some service training for her. The other person who helped her out and brought our food was lovely. He deserves a gold star. She does not (there were only the two there that night at that time).
food was good and so was the service but the prices were a little steep especially on the wines but overall it was a pleasant experience
Service was good. Temperature of the entree’s was not - seemed to have been sitting while we ate our appetizers.
Service was outstanding. Food was very good and wine recommendation was spot on. As a slightly out of the way but very convenient spot, you will not be disappointed.
Food is always good but the service is lack lustre. We have been twice in the last week and both times the level of service was not what we were expecting. In both instances we did not find the servers particularly friendly, fast or attentive.
Delicious meal with friendly service. They were very accommodating of our timeline so that we could make it to the theatre on time.
fabulous European style set up. Food and wine absolutely amazing quality.
Service with a big smile and a very experienced waitress who knew of a dish that was previously had but was not on the menu. The waitress knew it had moved to a vegetarian menu. My daughter was so happy!
Worst Restaurant that I have ever been at, they refused to remove clams from the pasta dish I ordered, ( I cannot eat shellfish.)
“ they stated they never make any changes to a dish” no matter what the circumstances.
They suggested a very basic pasta dish on the menu, I asked for cherry tomatoes to be added: they flatly refused. Despite cherry tomatoes being on other pasta dishes.
Will never go back there and will be telling all my friends to never go there.😡
Went to Celbrate my 50 th Birthday with colleagues . We work in the service industry (flight attendants ).
What a disappointment .
Waitress was not pleasant, she was completely miserable . Could not even fake a smile .
Do yourself a favour walk South to Wellington St and go to Cantina Mercotta . Wish this is where I would have celebrated instead but thought we would try something new . Would not recommend based on service .
Fun space but very tight! Difficult to walk between tables. Felt that the prices are a bit high for what you get....pasta with cheese sauce and black pepper ( no other signif ingredients) for 20+ dollars
Love the food - always delicious and never disappointed! Best Italian downtown.
We were here for a pre theatre lunch and enjoyed a salad and pizza. Both were very good and arrived quite promptly. Noise level picked up a bit as a large group was seated near to us.
The salad was a good portion. The pasta dishes were on the small side.
Wasn’t a fan. Drags had better pasta and service elsewhere. Wouldn’t go again.
Excellent food and service at a good price, a block from Queen subway station.
Great spot. Service was quick and knowledgeable. Food was great.
Amazing food, no consistent service. Had to go up to bar to get a second drink.
The food is amazing, I've never had better pasta than this authentic fresh Italian restaurant. The service was slow however, I understand it was busy but it took a lot of time just to get water, bread, drinks and paying for our checks in the end. Nonetheless I recommend this place, the food is definitely worth the price!
First time experiencing bar seating. Very enjoyable and entertaining. Great service.
Nice atmosphere, good food, very good service. Good spot to dine prior to a Mirvish show.
The service was on point, but the food was lack lustre. We were disappointed since we’ve heard so much good. The salmon was good but the lobster gnocchi was bland and there was 1.5 tiny pieces of lobster. Perhaps we’ll try another location before giving up
Very disappointed. We were there early and given a table in the cafeteria looking side - it was my birthday which I hadn’t mentioned. The hostess barely looked at us and certainly was anything but friendly. We left after our glass of wine.
Had been really looking forward to it.
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
Amazing service and kindness also in preparing a special and express rigatoni al ragù! Thanks Chef!
Thank you for this wonderful review, we will share your comments with our staff and chef! We hope to have you return again in the future :)
First time at this location. Smaller menu but the food is still of the highest quality!
Hi there, thank you for the 5-star review! The menu at La Bettola is smaller, curated menu compared to our Terroni menu. Thank you for appreciating the quality of food, we do our best to provide our guests with the highest quality ingredients. We hope to have you return again in the future. Have a nice day!
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 :)
Sat at the bar, couldn’t have had a nicer time. Food was excellent, as was the service.
I’ll be back.
Thank you for the 5-star review and kind words! We look forward to your return :)
Had a great dinner with a friend here, service was personable and professional, pizza was great
Hi there, thank you for your 5-star review and comments on service and food! We hope to welcome you again in the near future! Have a nice day :)
Authentic delicious Italian cuisine
Food is always consistently good!
Thank you Clarissa, consistency is important to us! We hope to see you back at La Bettola soon :)
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.
Loved my salad..pasta was outstanding and quality was perfection!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, we will share your compliments with our chef!
Perfecto! as always. The food is always incredible. Thanks again
Thank you EmmaL for the kind review! We hope to welcome you back to La Bettola again soon :)
Very small portion of clam pasta. The pasta was dry and the clams had a plastic after taste. Recommend not to order. Other pasta dishes looked more susbstantial.
The service was good. She gave us time to go over the menu. The only disappointment was that my pasta and meat sauce was cold. The server didn’t offer cheese or chilli flakes. Until I asked and even that cheese was never offered.
Hi Hermito, thank you for your positive review. Please know a manager or server are more than happy to correct any concerns you may have when you are dining with us, as long as they are notified. We hope you will consider returning in the future. Have a nice day :)
Great little Tratoria. Fabulous food, good service. Certainly will visit again.
Thank you MrMaGee, for your kind words! We look forward to your return :)
Vegetarian options were limited, nothing special and I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat here again. The menu online is very different. Server was not great, however the ambience was nice.
Hi there, thank you for your review and comments on the ambience. La Bettola di Terroni has a curated menu which specializes in authentic Italian dishes. We have a number of sister restaurant, including Terroni, with larger Italian menus and you may have been looking at their online menu. We hope you consider returning to La Bettola in the future or another one of our locations. Thank you and have a nice day!
