Lunch date with my wife was a very nice first time visit today. The service was very good and the food was delicious. I tried the Pollo Pomodoro sandwich and my wife had the Salsiccia pizza. Prices are a little higher than normal for a...lunch but the servings are a nice size so you should not leave hungry. Worth checking out.More

My husband and I had a great date night here. We had a few drinks and a charcuterie board. Our waiter was fantastic and so was the food.

Enjoyed an amazing lunch sitting outside. We felt like we were in Italy dining al fresco. We shared a burrata for 2. It arrived with this awesome bread. It looked like a pita on steroids, fluffy, doey and warm!! We also shared a roast chicken...and tomato sandwich...yummy!! I would highly recommend Bettola!! Next time, we'll definitely try the wood fired pizza, which looked delicious!!More

Picked up a to go order on August 29. The entree pasta dish was tasty but the portion size for $18.00 was a complete joke. I have felt better fed after taking communion. No bread, that’s an extra $4.00. I have never felt compelled to...write a review before, I have eaten at almost all of the highly ranked restaurants in Birmingham. However I feel completely ripped off by the size of the portion for the amount paid. Will never darken their doorway again.More

Made reservations for 5:45 on a Saturday. They weren't busy when we got there, but it picked up real quick. Super fast service, and the waiter was awesome. My husband had the lombatello and I had the pancetta e cipolla pizza with added mushrooms. Both...were amazing. And the tiramisu was as well. A+ restaurant.More

We had a table of 6 and everyone was happy although we only ordered entrees. Everyone except me got a pasta dish and they all looked great. I loved my fish dish and will probably order it again. We’ll be back!

Cute place with good menu. Will give it another chance as we were in a hurry. Hanger steak way under cooked.

This place is great! The whole experience, every time, is a treat! Get the burrata! It’s perhaps the best in town, by far

****true Neapolitan pizza**** I don’t throw this term around lightly. This place knows what they are doing and they do it right. Th pies are ready in 2-3 minutes and the dough is delicious. I think that most pizza in the USA is terrible -...if you’ve been to Antico in Atlanta, this is better.More

I am a huge fan of Italian food and have been to several spots all over Central Alabama. Bettola is my go-to place. I know that everything from the appetizers to the desert is going to be perfect every time. The wine and beer selection...is outstanding as well. I have never had a bad experience here.More
