    The Szegedi plate was quite good. The Mac and cheese was incredible. The sausages were good. Beer choice was good but no matching glasses. The live music was not to my taste.

    We were attracted to the German food which is rare in Manhattan. My guest and I tried the jaeger schnitzel and the sausage combo. Quite good. Many patrons were having pasta and pizza from the Italian portion of the menu. The meat portions are huge. Brought home the leftovers for another meal the next day. Next time I will concentrate on the cucumber salad, red cabbage and potato salad. I drank a wonderful bottle of Czech Pilsner. Service is good at this casual place.

    A fun time at Bettola! We had the classic German schnitzel and it was delicious! Their potato salad and thin cucumber salad the perfect addition. Just wish we came at 7:30 for the music, different every nite. Hospitality, like being at your favorite uncle's house. Thanks!!

    On Friday, March 18th my husband and I went to Bettola’s for the 4th time. The first and second time was a couple of years ago and ate outdoors bc COVID limitations prevailed. At that time they served Italian cuisine, which was quite good. We loved the owner who played popular rock songs w his portable piano. We went twice but found the portions on our plate small, so we ordered their pizza. It was recently that we re-discovered that Bettola converted their Italian restaurant to a German and Italian one. The last 2 times we had German food - Mainly jaegar schnitzel, schnitzel, chicken Paprikash. And the honey bee salad - which was outstanding . The salad had wonderful Nektar dressing-out of this world.All of the above dishes -were quite tasty and w very large portions. This will be our go to restaurant. Btw, the ambiance was cozy, friendly people at the table next to us. What more can I say. Try it! You won’t be disappointed.

    Outstanding food, service and ambiance once again. The owners are super friendly and welcoming. Very cozy with a very cool buzz. I've lived in the city for a very long time and Bettola has become one of my favorites for every possible reason. Their schnitzel is the best in the city. Truly a hidden gem but not for long.

    I've been going to this neighborhood gem for 10+ years and it constantly amazes me. This is a cozy and interesting place. The owner/chef Vlado is fascinating and plays music along with his delicious meals. Pastas and pizzas are excellent and the higher cholesterol wursts look yummy too. Service is spot on and everyone is just friendly here. Talk to your neighbors, enjoy the ambiance and no sticker shock when the check comes!

    Food was fine and it’s perfect for a group dinner. The music adds a layer not often found in the city. Beverage selection somewhat limited - best to stay with simple cocktails. Menu very varied with German, Italian, seafood, and pizza. We had schnitzels, goulash, and seafood pasta - all good. If I lived close by, I’d pick up a couple of pizzas one evening - they did look good. Give it a shot for a different experience - you’ll enjoy it.
