“An English Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is an authentic Italian restaurant located just blocks from the Terminal 5 Hilton. The vegetables are fresh and the meats are exquisite. The ambience is delightful and if you eat out on the enclosed patio, you will be amazed by a ceiling of grape vines ripe with grape clusters (they were real and tasted great). The pastas and main dishes are as good as any you will find in Rome! Highly recommended!

“A close to eating in a country restaurant in Italy without actually going..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

From the moment you walk in you are warmly greated. The restaurant is quintessential old style Italian. Its not flash, its not posey, it just does good Italian home cooked food, that taste lovely. The big attraction to this place, is their lovely back atrium, which actually has grapes (yes real grapes) growing in the ceiling! The pizzas are made from their stone baked oven. You can even watch them making them in true Italian style, with fresh ingredients. Their pastas are delicious too. Only downsides would be their house wine is average and they charge "covers" for bread and olives, which might appear as "freebies" as they are presented to you while you are waiting, but are charged to your bill so take note. Other than that, if this restarant was on a high street or anywhere else, I firmly believe it would be somewhere that would require a reservation.

“Poor food, not worth visiting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We went to legoland for family holiday, went online to look for nice Italian restaurant to dine in, and found la bettola!

On that website it's review was 5* and rated rank 4 and have received very good reviews, so we decided to go there for dinner that night!

When we arrived, it was a local guest house, inside the residential area, which is fine. But the food was very poor, I would suggest for those who do decide to go, make sure you order a big bottle of water for the table as you would need it as food are salty!

The only good thing was the basket of bread served before meal. Food was expensive
Def won't be back again

“Loved the whole experience! Would travel just to come back here.”

I took my partner while on a thorpe park 2 day trip. It was his birthday so chose to visit la bettola for a meal. They were very friendly, attentive and polite. Food was lovely and great value for money. This would be our restaurant of choice if we were in the area again. Lovely staff, food and authentic italian decor.

“Read Me!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

- Great Food, freshly cooked and served
- Excellent service, waiter had a great sense of humour
- Fantastic interior with grapes growing over your head and what an Ambience
- Spotless and clean
- Most meals are less than a ten pounds which is very competitive for fresh produce
- From the outside it looks rather ordinary and you would not expect much
- We will be back, that's for sure.

Ciao, from Andreas
