This may be a small restaurant in a tiny village - but our hosts, the Foresti Family, wisely steered us here for dinner! We ordered a bottle of Pellegrino, a half liter of very nice vino rosso, an appetizer of fondue with bacon on toasted bread, a plate of gnocchi with a touch of duck, a steak and potato dish, two coffees & split a pastry. Our meal came to 48€. The appetizer & the gnocchi were very good but not exceptional -- on the other hand the steak was some of the best we have ever had & the pastry was excellent. The lower room has a vaulted ceiling and a small door at one end that leads to the "secret" passage ways that run under the town (you can peek in!) a lovely evening. BTW they open for dinner at 7:30, we were the first guests at 7:50, but by 9 they were dialing up on a rainy Monday in May! We were the only North Americans - there was a German couple, the rest were Italians.

We still get hungry while thinking of Osteria dell'oca, the figs wrapped in prosciuotto were phenomenal as was the rabbit ragu sauce. Our children were more than welcome here and made to feel as special guests but it was also a wonderful place for a romantic evening with my husband. The owner is fantastic and treated us like family and we throughly enjoyed every meal we ate here! Wish we lived closer.

Lovely place to have dinners for gourmands. You should try the local cheese and pasta.

Popped in for a quick bite on a flying visit to Aosta. Very busy (mainly locals), delicious simple cuisine at sensible prices. Evreything an Italian restaurant should be. Highly recommended.

We were put off initially by the exterior, but decided to give it a go, and we were absolutely wowed! The food was fantastic, the choice from the menu very varied, and the staff all exceptionally friendly. Value for money is second to none. Even if you aren't stopping in Bettona, seek this one out!
