Great Local Spot – Really good, fresh food at reasonable prices in a cozy location. Service is nothing out of the ordinary, but definitely one of our faves in the neighborhood.
Great place, great food! – Food is great specially the pizza and homemade pastas, they actually taste homemade and fresh, service was really nice very friendly staff. I would come back anytime!
Delicious food, great little spot – I went to Bettola the other night with a girlfriend of mine. We split a salad and a pizza and enjoyed every bite!! We went on a Tuesday and used the free wine coupon from this page, and for house wine, it was really good - we actually ordered another. Friendly staff, cute atmosphere - a really nice find on the upper west.
Yummy – I went here last weekend for dinner with friends and had the Prosciutto with goat cheese... I was feeling a bit brave, I never usually order things I'm not used to. To my surprise, it was absolutely delicious! The staff were so accomodating and friendly as well, this place has inspired me to venture out and find new places/ try new foods. Highly reccommended!
Surprisingly Good – My friend and I wandered into here today after walking around Central Park. It's really nice and cozy place with outdoor seating in the summer. We tried the prosciutto pizza which was shockingly great! It's hard to come by prosciutto pizza that's not so salty and this one was just perfect and crisp and tasty. We also had the shrimp salad, also very good. Our total meal was $28 w/o tip. I think it's a great spot for catching up w friends or even going out on a date. Place isn't that big but charming. Only downside was the waitress seemed grumpy, but service was fine otherwise. I would definitely come back here if I was in the neighborhood and in the mood for pizza! They have pasta dishes and some antipasta dishes as well.
Simply in love! – I felt in love with this place from the first look. This simple, but stylish upper west side italian restaurant with a brick oven has almost become my home. Sometimes I come there even twice, for luch and dinner. This place is good to take out your family for a dinnner and very romantic to come for a date later. Bettola has the best pizzas. Last night I had white pizza with asparagus, chery tomatoes, mushrooms and truffle oil. My friend had Prosciutto de Parma with goat cheese, marinated tomatoes and lots of basil. Amazingly good! Pastas are also very good, never tried carrot fettuccine or goat cheese and pistacio ravioli in any other place.
The service is very friendly, professional and easy going. They are knowledgable about their different wines and daily specials.
I have tried so many places in the neighbourhood, but Bettola is the place I will allways return because it is consistant and never dissapoints.
Best thin crust pizza – This is truly an Upper West Side gem - the pizzas are excellent as well are the salads and the spinach lasagna. They even offer the option of whole wheat dough for your pizza. However, I believe the service leaves a lot to be desired. The waitstaff is inattentive and unknowledgeable about the menu/specials etc.
Still worth it to go, esp if you live in the neighborhood.
Delicious authentic Italian cuisine – A wonderful and authentic Italian restaurant. I have eaten here about a dozen times since it has opened, and I have always had a delicious meal. The pizza is delicious and the pasta is so tasty. The lamb chops are outstanding.
Actually Left Hungry – Ate here last Saturday night with my girlfriend. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting. The wine was absolutely delicious, and we were able to sit back and enjoy it without feeling rushed. In fact, I enjoyed everything about this place except the food. I ordered the steak dish, and was the smallest portion of meat I've ever seen. Not only that, but the flavor was pretty bland. After cleaning my plate and still feeling unfulfilled with my meal, I decided to order desert. Once again, the smallest piece of cake I've ever seen was set down in front of me. The prices at this resaraunt are pretty reasonable, but when I go out to eat, I don't want to pay $22 for a steak and then leave feeling still quite hungry.
What a great neighborhood Italian Restaurand – Their wood oven pizza is out of this world! We happened upon this restaurant while walking around one evening and have been thankful eversince.
