I loved the restaurant and the staff was great! We had a large group and the staff was very accommodating. It was very loud in the restaurant but you could also sit out side which was very pretty at night. I am currently dieting so...More

Great atmosphere with unique cocktails. Wood fire pizza and fresh bread. We sat at the bar and the bartender was wonderful. We were asked several times if we enjoyed our meal. Finally, we shared a chocolate mousse dessert, it was light and just enough.

We were in town escaping the hurricane. I must say Bettola was a nice "light out of the storm", as it was a cold, wet, rainy night and we were stressed due to waiting to leave town to return home! Service was AWESOME! We shared...More

A great location and good service started the night off right. We enjoyed a cannelllini purée with olive oil and bread as an appetizer. We stuffed ourselves with the Sugo di pomodoro, margherita pizza and filetti pizzas. It was all delicious. The pizzas cooked in...More
