Reviews for Bettola

Although the food, atmosphere, and server were excellent, the portion of food cost like a meal and looked like a snack. We felt we had just gotten started when it was finished. Also the menu said it would have English peas in it, and no, there were black eyed peas! Quite a difference! So great food, tiny portions, and unadvertised substitutions in the menu. Probably won’t return for a meal, but maybe for drink & appetizer. Wonder how small THAT will be!

If you are looking for contemporary upscale casual dining in the Birmingham area, this is the place for you! It is a smaller restaurant with an industrial rustic, but chic ambiance. The executive chef here is brilliant. The menu is not extensive, but everything on the menu is incredible. This is a must do if you are visiting the Birmingham area or live in the area and looking for somewhere new to try. Parking is limited and reservations are suggested.

The food here really deserves five stars. The pizzas are simple and amazing, perfect dough texture and the flavors are so prominent. Fresh sweet basil, salty good quality cheeses. So good. The only pasta I've tried was a seasonal bucatini and it was also phenomenal. The perfect chew and fresh delicious flavors! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is for drink service. One time I sat at the bar and the bartender was super slammed, very slow to refill drinks (if at all). full review
