A wonderful restaurant to dine at in Edgartown. Delicious and creative food, attentive waitstaff and beautiful views of the ocean and lighthouse. A bit pricy, but that's Martha's Vineyard, everything is. Overall, a great experience in a wonderfully romantic setting.

Wow what a restaurant! Beautiful views, top notch staff, delicious food. Who could ask for more. Well Bettini delivers. We don’t go often enough, maybe twice a year, but the staff makes you feel like you’re their favorite customer. It’s easier for me to say I enjoyed the experience above anything else.

Overall great location and restaurant design but the nights tone is set with the bartender who doesnt appear like he wants to be there. When asking for a cocktail list he nodded towards a black book near us but said nothing. He then barely mustered a smile or confirmation of what our drink order was. The cocktails didnt tast like they should be worth $5 let alone $16- So the vibe was already weird. Then our server who was v nice and also training someone, took our drink and dinner orders but then did not appear until the check was dropped (by a manager i might add) the best part of the night was the calamari who knew? Def has potential to be a great dining experience but the staff in general just need to step up their professionalism and standards to match what sort of place they think they are. Of the 5 managers/hosts there the one gentlemen who dropped the check and boxed the dessert was very nice and understood what it means to work at a nice establishment.

We had not been to Bettini since they remodeled about 2 years ago and it was excellent. We were very happy with the service and the food couldn’t have been better. If there’s any criticism, they could use some more California wines on the menu. It is one of the best places on the island, without question!

We had a lovely experience and excellent meal. One small hiccup was we tried to send drinks to a friends table and the waiter forgot. He was extremely apologetic and notified the manager who offered a Gift certificate to the group - a lovely gesture. Look forward to returning.

We had a wonderful dinner at Bettini at the Harbor View! The rigatoni a la vodka was absolutely delish, as was the chicken entree and the truffle fries. Great service and nice atmosphere inside, along with creative cocktails. Can’t wait to return!

What a lovely experience! We had a marvelous dinner last night at Bettini. First of all, free parking in Edgartown is such a real benefit compared to $20 valet at other spots. The hotel is beautiful and all the staff are authentically warm, friendly, and helpful. We arrived a bit early and were seated at a huge table (we were only 2 and they put us at a 4 top) in the buzzing restaurant, right by the picture window with a view to die for across the channel to Chappy over the lighthouse, grass and dunes where we watched a lovely sunset unfold while we dined. The cocktails are delicious, we liked the warm loaf of bread so much we got seconds :) For starters I had the tuna tartare with avocado mousse and baby radishes, and my husband enjoyed the pricey but expertly made crab cake. I have a modest quibble here in that it looked more like backfin than lump, but it tasted terrific, sporting a crispetty crunchy outside and nearly no bread inside, paired with a zippy parsley salad and a scoop of decadent Creole remoulade. For his main, my husband enjoyed the flawless roasted half chicken. I would gladly eat my unctuous casarecce with oxtail again for dinner tonight! Washed it all down with strong, yummy cocktails and a big pinot noir. For dessert I was stuffed but managed a couple of tiny bites of decadent, over the top gigantic chocolate cremeux with ginger, preserved cherries and hazelnut ice cream as well as blueberry cheesecake, with a final glass of champagne. Huge bill, totally worth it. The details are all really nice here, with Molton Brown toiletries, lovely decor, and a fabulous staff. Credit is especially due to our delightful, sweet server, Sara, who made our night shine with her TLC. I hope the management know what an asset she is!
One area for improvement is that the bar is a little slow. When you're paying this much, you want your wine to arrive with your meal, and not 15 mins after, but it's a busy end of summer night and we were way too happy to mind.

Came to MV for the day and was looking for a delicious meal in a nice setting, and that’s exactly what we found! Food was scrumptious…felt clean and fresh and very delicious. Was beautifully prepared and tasted fantastic!! Service was pleasant but a little spotty in that we ordered the endive salad, but were given the arugula salad. We like both, so decided to try it. We liked it so we ended up eating the whole thing, even dipping the delicious rolls into the vinaigrette at the end. Our entrees of Halibut and Lamb were spot-on and we followed them up by sharing a treat of affogato. Oh and the view out the windows were beautiful!

The greeter was pleasant and welcoming. She smiled and wished us a Happy Anniversary, which meant a lot to my wife and I , and impressed our guests even more. This was our Anniversary dinner.

Our wait staffer, Elizabeth, was wonderful, Prompt, personable, and knowledgeable about the menu and the daily specials.

Our cocktails were delicious as were the wines we had with the meal. Our selections were from the menu but I had the special. The calamari is the best I’ve had.

Everything was great. This was our second visit to Bettini’s and will be going again.

The meals were somewhat disappointing.

$56 for basically three lamb chops and $ 46 for a small serving of halibut with nothing else served along side the entree.

The waiter was outstanding.

The Champagne and dessert were a very nice touch. The ambiance was outstanding.

The seating at the window was excellent with an outstanding view of the harbor.

Thanks for an excellent evening as we celebrated our 65 anniversary.

Terrific meal! Amazing service. Went for our anniversary (which I mentioned in the Open Table reservation) and every staff person wished us a happy anniversary! Also printed happy anniversary on the menu and gave us complimentary champagne. Food was terrific and the location and view of the outer harbor is truly unbeatable. Highly recommend!
