Not the usual Italian

The pizzas are super thin crust baked in a hot wood-fired oven. They are far from your standard chain pizzas. The pizzas, sandwiches, and pasta are all excellent. The last time we were there, one of us tried the filo chicken and found it a bit bland and dry. Other than that, we've not been... read more

Some of the best brick oven pizza in the city! Crust can't be beat! Put whatever you want on it or choose from some of their new selections of specialty pizzas.

Loved the thin crust on our Margherita pizza and tiramisu is delicious! Convenient location to Cintas center.

We ordered bread garlic sticks, pepperoni pizza and a steak hoagie, we found none of this impressive. We really felt it all lacked any flavor. The garlic sticks are hollow and supposed to contain cheese, you couldn't prove it by me. I like a pizza crust that has flavor even if eaten alone, this one did not, but adding the... More

Take your pick - Margarita pizza, eggplant parmigiana, lasagna, calzones - they are all excellent because the red sauce at Bettas is fresh and full of the taste of perfectly ripened tomatoes. And because these and most all of Bettas dishes are cooked to perfection with this sauce. Have been a patron for many years and have never been disappointed.... More

Went for a late dinner with family and some college students. Pizza was very good and would be the first choice if we went back. One enjoyed the lasagna. Reuben was average and an Italian sub was described as "good". The atmosphere was fun/casual. It is literally down the street from the Cintas center and now across from the new... More

Went with friends after a basketball game. Sat at bar and shared a pizza with my wife. Pizza was delicious, thin crust. Only issue was wife had to ask to get water refilled. Otherwise service good. Watched sports on tv's behind the bar I would go back

This place may have been here a while but the food I had and the service that delivered it is no-class. I ordered the Italian beef Sandwich- was told it is very popular. I was asked if I wanted the peppers that come on it to be mild or hot. I ordered hot. The sandwich came on a bun- the... More
