Delicious Italian food, great service and wine recommendations from our server. Fresh seafood, which is hard to do in a landlocked state. One of the finest restaurants on the east side of Denver/Aurora that my wife and I have ever experienced. Don’t mind the bland strip mall - it’s worth it.

We are still talking about our dinner. Everything tasted amazing and was paired perfectly with wine suggestions. We can’t wait to go back and explore their Wines more as had some great Italian choices not usually found. The service was top notch and super welcoming. Also they took extra precautions to make sure everything was clean.

Not a fine dining restaurant, yet the service and food made us feel like it was! We were helped by 2 servers, who were extremely professional, knowledgeable, and gave us a very unique and personal experience. The bread they gave us to start with was fantastic. The Brussel Sprouts were sooo crispy and delicious. And the pork chop (special of the night) was very good. Drinks were also made to perfection! Lastly, chocolate cake was so tasty and rich my mouth is watering thinking about it. Thanks we will see y’all soon!

Attentive Staff offering superb fare from divine, Brussels sprouts and diver scallops to a sublime chocolate budino. Making the best of the pandemic with cozy, outdoor seating amidst planter boxes of herbs and flowers.Bonus: this gem is located in an Aurora, nondescript, strip mall. Support local business!

The scallops with risotto was absolutely delicious. Scallops cooked perfectly and added veggies fit right in. So nice to have tasting sample of a red wine which we then ordered. The patio dining left something to be desired regarding the seating and the weather. Service was excellent!

Despite COVID challenges, Bettola has re-opened with appropriate table distancing with staff masked and screening of customers with temperature checks. The food hasn't skipped a beat-fresh and delicious. We started with bruschetta-heirloom cherry tomatoes from their garden and homemade ricotta. The pasta dishes, bread and (especially) desserts were amazing. The service was excellent with Chris and Shaffer back serving and minding he house.
It sits in a strip mall where you would not expect such a high-end restaurant. As a result, I suspect many who go are repeat customers.
This visit was my wife's birthday and they were kind enough to treat her with some delicious Prosecco.
We will be back!
