If you're hungry, be warned the pasta servings are small. Go for the pizza so you don't leave hungry

Very noisy with customers (can’t do anything about this) but with added heavy bass from music system. We complained and it was turned down and was an improvement

Yes because the food was amazing, and it's really close to me! But the service was horrible, had to wait around 40 minutes to get our waitress attention to get the bill and ended up having to go in to request it.

Food was good. Wine list not explained well & most wines unrecognizable. Wine was OK. Service was so-so. Waitress a little bit too concerned with a loud, obnoxious group of youngish I’ll-mannered women. Noise level was extremely high....very difficult to carry on conversation. Bench seating extremely uncomfortable.

The food was good, but they did bring the food for all 5 of us at the same time, both for main course and dessert, and the drinks arrived way after the food, same for the coffee for the dessert. They need to coordinate better.

Underwhelming - pasta was over cooked, sauce tasted like canned and the service was extremely slow. Over priced for the quality of food. Have been before and thought I would give it another try - will not be back.

Limited menu. Does not accommodate changes to menu easily. Food was okay; tomato sauce was dissappointing for an Italian restaurant (almost tasted canned). Service was friendly and efficient and we were seated and served promptly.

By far the worst Terroni restaurant we have been to. Hostess was chewing gum. We asked for a taste of a $13 glass of wine before we ordered it and were told by our server: “We don’t do that anymore “
Food was mediocre. Prices were outrageous given the poor quality. Needless to say, we won’t be back. Too bad we didn’t go to the Senator.

Hi Jacquie, thank you for your review. Being a sister restaurant to Terroni, La Bettola has its own curated separate menu. However, we offer a specials menu daily that ranges from salads to meats to fish and much more. We hope you return to try some items on that menu! Thank you again for your feedback.

Overrated. Server avoided to bring balsamic with olive oil and bread because owner of restaurant doesn't like to mix his hand picked olive oil with vinegar! Hostess didn't accept to change our table to a larger one since we were a couple. Later I saw she offered same table to another couple! The ordered sparkling drink was flat. Pizza was pretty standard.

Although the Gin - Build your own gin and tonic cocktail was an eye opening $15.00 !! the pizza and seared tuna salad was delicious.
Our very kind server brought us each reading glasses for the small printed menu.

Manager dropped by our table to inquire about our dinner and was pleasant !!

Great venue for pre - Theatre light dinner

Staff were most unaccommodating. Manager Refused to permit us to move to a specific table, but other other staff moved us. Manager was very unhappy that we were permitted to move . Wait staff were very unfriendly. Did not ask how our meal was, nor did she ask if we wanted anything, drinks, pepper, etc. Very poor service. Your staff should find another calling as they are totalling unsuited to be in the restaurant business working with the public.

Always nice food, well prepared with fresh ingredients. Service is attentive but not overbearing. Menu is good but not enormous. Pizza and pasta are the staples with a few other choices.

Lives up to the Terroni reputation of very good, cool vibe, Italian.

Although we enjoyed what we did order the menu was limited for us. We like to eat healthy so stay away from pasta and pizza. If you like to eat those things then the choice is better. Found it a bit noisy and somehow it felt crowded. Not relaxing if that is what you are looking for. Also we had to ask for specific chairs as some are very uncomfortable with no back or no cushioning.

Hi there, thank you for your review. We do have a specials menu which includes salads, fish, meat, vegan and gluten free options! We are usually a more intimate location, but La Bettola is popular with guests who attend surrounding theatre shows and some nights can be more lively as a result. We will be sharing your comments about the chairs to our management team as we are always looking for ways to improve. Thank you and have a great day!

We booked La Bettola because it was close to the Elgin Theatre and we had eaten at other Terroni restaurants before. The experience was disappointing. I am vegetarian and the chef refused to leave off some prosciutto from a pizza that I wanted to order. A very small basket of bread was put on the table for 4 people, with nothing else ... at the next table we saw that some condiments came with the bread (and if you want more bread, there is a charge!). We ordered the Panzarella salad, thinking that since it cost $15, it would be sufficient for two people. The serving was so tiny, we sent it back and did without salad. The pizza and pasta were good, but by then, we were rather put off. We would not come here again ... the prices are high for what you get.

Hi Helene, we assist with dietary restrictions on a daily basis and with advance notice our chef can be better prepared for your visit and would be able to assist you with various options. Our first basket is provided with compliments from our in house bakery made with the highest quality ingredients imported from Italy. Our prices are reflected in the high quality of our ingredients and we hope you can give us another opportunity for your next authentic Italian dining experience. Thank you!

Cons: A little noisy but not so much that I couldn't hear the people at my table. We were seated beside the bar so there was service traffic beside our table. Would have preferred to be near a window.
Pros: Service was excellent. Food was excellent. A little pricey but the quality of the food made up for it.

Delicious pizza and pasta - and the ball of mozzarella di bufala in the caprese salad was to die for. Went once at lunch and once after work for a drink/snack - it's quick and easy with an open table reso. My friend was like "let's come back here a bunch!" after I brought her. My new fav spot.

I have been dining at the many locations of Terroni for many years and this was the first meal that was truly underwhelming and disappointing. My pasta was way over-cooked and bland. Whereas my companion’s was barely al dente.

The food is excellent. I was surprised and disappointed though by the fact that you can not try the wine they serve by the glass. Too bad, we would have bought a whole bottle if we had a taste first, because it was really good.

Great food and service but.... last time we ate here we were seated in the “south” room and should have known better than to agree to sit in their other room which has family seating where the ambiance is completely different. While we sat at a table of 2 just way too much noise and so hectic.

But!!!! Will definitely go back for their amazing pizza (had the prosciutto pizza) and mushroom appetizer (a must! yum!!) but only if we get a table in their south room ( left side upon arrival).
Also their coffee is terrific so is the panna cotta 👍👍

Pizza was amazing. * If you have a dietary restriction do NOT go to this restaurant. They have lots of dishes with nuts and lots of cross contamination. They were UNABLE to give me a salad with some protein! Not a huge request. They have no Chicken, no beef, no fish other than the explicit menu items. They will not make changes and no accommodations. .

Go for the delicious pizza, but nothing else.

i thought i would treat myself to the $40.00 Halibut. It was a very poor meal. Fish was not fresh.
One piece of Bokchoy. Can't figure out what spice was used in the one vegetable.
Friend had the salmon which he referred to as the sardine.

Went home hungry and disappointed .
