Came in on a Thursday night and had one of the best meals of my life. Freshly foraged mushrooms, scallops over an incredible risotto & a marscapone and prosciutto pizza that was out of this world. The best cocktail on the menu is the bartenders choice- the bartender is incredibly knowledgable and made the perfect drink to accompany my meal. Finished it off with a lace cannoli that was delicate and delicious. Would recommend this place to everyone.

Was looking for a place for my daughter's birthday lunch on Monday. A lot of places that we chose were closed due to the holiday and it ended up being the best thing that happened! Beautiful, charming and an adventure of the palette. I am normally skeptical of eating out because I like to cook so much, but this is going to be on the favorites list. così buono!

Always excellent. Recorded the Al. LSU Game and had great service cause half the tables were empty. Very good house made bread, House made Pasta & tomato sauce was simple and beautiful. Just use great ingredients and lovingly prepare them. I have been 7 times and will continue to enjoy this beautiful, simple, elegant food. Pizza in a wood fires oven, blistered okra, meat & cheese plate a little harder to order now. I just let the chef put it together. Service has always been good to great.

So glad to hear you're a big fan of ours! We know it's been a while since you left this, but we hope you'll come see us again soon -- 7 times is a lot, but you'll need more than that to sample all our different sauce and topping combinations, so here's hoping you'll be back soon for more! All the best, The Bettola Team

My pizza was soggy in the middle... roughly 60% was like a pasta soup. Beer came from a can, and tasted like it.

I had the quattro formaggio pasta- essentially like fettucine alfredo in concept. Unlike most pasta-and-cheese-sauce dishes, however, it tasted fantastic! Creamy, rich, and topped with fresh basil leaves for an extra kick. Wait time was not bad considering the food is fresh. Prices were decent (though lunch is cheaper than dinner), in a charming location, and the interior had a sophisticated, authentic European feel- made me feel like I was in Paris again. Will be back, maybe I'll try the gnocchi next time and a dessert!

So so tasty, I had a salad and my husband had the pizza and both were impressive. Service was excellent too, even on a really busy night.

We came for late lunch. Service was wonderful, my cocktail was great, the antipasto was delicious, and the margarita pizza was perfect.
