Bettola is a neighborhood gem. Delicious food at a very reasonable cost and the people there are always very welcoming. It's like eating at home without having to clean up! :)

We LOVE this restaurant, and we're so glad they're surviving the pandemic. Can't wait until they're FULLY open again.
Great spot! Our server was very attentive and pleasant. Food was amazing! I had eggplant parmesan for appetizer and main course chicken milanese and tiramisu for dessert everything was delicious. I would definitely recommend. Will be back soon!
Amazing, high quality, and tasteful food. Great environment. Patio outdoor seating both have heaters and are enclosed which is great for outdoor dining. Highly recommend.
Funky interior, great food. Homey feel, excellent background music and when the chef came out and played the piano everything went up a notch. Love it
GREAT FAMILY, neighborhood Restaurant. Stuff and Owners are very Friendly. Lots of music, Amazing home cooking ! We will keep coming back.
We love Bettola! Amazing pastas, great service, a real neighborhood place!
nice place, but staff yelling at kids just enjoying themselves is not cool. Pasta a bit overcooked, pizza better.
Overall, we had a very good experience. Prompt service, good food and reasonable prices. We will go back.
Awasame Food, Fantastic Service and friendly owners made my birthday special. Live music by the owner/ chef ! Can’t wait to come back.
Great place for a nice Sunday night dinner with the family
Went to this restaurant before going to the Beacon theatre on Feb 7th. Small, restaurant with tables extremely close to each other. I ordered the chicken in lemon and wine sauce with mashed potatoes. My huband ordered the lasagna. His food came out piping hot. I have a pet peeve about the temperature of my dinner and my dinner came out luke warm. The chicken was not hot at all which leads me to believe it was premade and not made to order. I sent the meal back and when it returned, it was the same temperature as when I sent it back. I did not want to make a big deal out of this, so I ate it. Won't be back.
Very cute looking restaurant & the food was good. We didn't order a pizza, however, someone else did & It looked very nice. I look forward to going back to Bettola one day soon.
We loved this place. Great Food, Friendly Service. The Owners make you feel like at home. Live music by the chef. Cozy atmosphere.
It’s a hidden gem & if you’re a pizza lover, a must try
Fun rock n’ Roll vibe!
this is a wonderful place for any day dining or for a special occasion
delicious food!!! love their insalata romana and the pizza Bianca but there’s more!
friendly staff, great music ( live singer and chef plays piano and sings!
both a neighborhood gem and a great place for a special celebration!
Everything was great. Magnificent food, fantastic service. Lots options for fussy eaters. The restaurant is very cool, Rock and Roll with live music by the chef / owner . Very impressed.
Fun Place, Amazing Food, Friendly Fast Service, we enjoyed very special specials, would recommend, we will be back soon thank you !
Great family place
The service was extremely slow although the place was mostly empty. The pecorino cheese was left out of my friends salad even though there were only five ingredients in the salad and they were not apologetic when he pointed it out. The tomato sauce was overly sweet. Combination of mediocre food and bad service did not make a good experience.
Great service! Good value. Highly recommend!!!
We love Bettola, and go there at least once a month. The food is terrific and an excellent value, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. It is and will remain one of our main go-tos in a neighborhood crowded with excellent restaurants.
We Love Bettola, the food is Amazing, place very cozy, i don’t think you can find anywhere else in the city a restaurant where Chef comes out from the kitchen and plays and sing incredible rock and roll music. We will be back, thank you for a great evening .
As a 2nd generation Italian-American, I am extremely picky about the food at Italian restuarants and Bettola did not disappoint! The sauce from Bettola tasted just like my grandmothers (both of them) and the eggplant appetizer with tomato and mozzarella was exquisite. I was impressed with the fresh flavors and the homemade taste of everything. Although it was extremely crowded and a somewhat small space, the place was quaint and homey. My friend and I were able to have a nice conversation over dinner. The tiramisu was quite excpetional as well. I would highly recommend.
Great local Italian Restaurant. Nice crowd, not too big, great food fairly priced. Owner plays the piano, just the kind of restaurant I enjoy going to.
Our group of 7 dined at Bettola post-Marathon for an early dinner. The pasta dishes were amazing and the service was great. Nice menu selection from pizzas and pastas to entrees. We all enjoyed a warm meal and hospitality after a long day.
we love this neighborhood Italian restaurant and its owners. It's a comfortable place with pretty decent food at reasonable prices. Some nights, the owner plays the keyboard. The restaurant is decorated in the most wonderful way with instruments on the walls and ceilings, reflecting the owner's love of music.
Great! Perfect dare spot
Review of Bettola this evening.
I had dinner at Bettola tonight. It is my favorite restaurant in my neighborhood, on Amsterdam Ave., between 80th and 79th Street. The food is invariably delicious, the owners, Vlado and Giga are always welcoming and Vlado, in addition to being a superb chef, is a brilliant musician. He plays the piano and sings now and then, and everyone is happy to listen and perhaps sing along quietly. The cuisine is reputedly “Italian,” but there are variations, so it is really European. Most recently, Vlado invented a new dessert, pistachio cake, which has the consistency of tiramisu, and an indescribably good flavor. I am a gourmand, not a particularly distinguished cook myself, and I love dining with Vlado, Giga and their charming and accomplished staff.
Excellent place. Great food and the chef owner and his spouse both engage the guests. I love the lasagna which has homemade noodles and bechamel sauce exactly the way lasagna should be made. Other dishes are excellent also. The owner is a former Slovakian Rocker with Gold Records on the wall and guitars hanging from the ceiling. It's a very cool ambiance.
Enjoyed the happy hour pizzas from the brick oven which is consistently excellent. Great value and cozy space.
wonderful neighborhood gem
We ate early. It was quiet. Not many diners but they started coming in about 730. My choice of shrimp and linguine was not a great choice. I have had better meals there.
