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.

Their schnitzel is the best in the city. Truly a hidden gem but not for long.

Pastas and pizzas are excellent and the higher cholesterol wursts look yummy too. Service is spot on and everyone is just friendly here.

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.

The deserts were just okay. The staff was friendly and made our group outing most enjoyable.

Bettola has been around for a while but I just discovered it and I've been there already twice in one week. I plan to take more friends to experience the neighborhood ambiance and warmth of the owners and servers.
