Too close to other obnoxious patrons at other table. Expected something good more spacious. 18 dollars for Caprese salad was a bit much. I enjoyed it but... Nice spot overall.

Delicious food. Service was great and very attentive. Noise level was typical with Italian restaurants so it's more suitable for a fun night out than a romantic date.

Food comes out way too fast. Having a menu that reads the way it does, you'd expect time and love put into your plates...not fast food that comes out in less then 10 minutes. Made us feel like food is sitting on the racks pre-made. I understand you are busy (theaters, etc) and want a turnover but not every guests is in a rush. We were advised of a 2 hour turnover and came in understanding this. But to rush us in an hour?
We ordered 2 appetizers at different times and 3 entrees; nothing was ordered all at once. We were done in just over an hour. Will point out that server was great and that your pasta is fantastico!

Overall a good spot pre-show at Massey Hall. Food was tasty, but presentation slightly lacking. Tomato salad could have used a few more basil leaves. Wine by the glass - too expensive.
Service was friendly and attentive.

Service was terrible- there was a large party who was seated next to us, we had to keep tucking in our chairs to let people pass and I think they were taking up the wait staffs attention. The waitress initially came over right as soon as we got to the table, literally I was still taking my coat off and she was like do you want anything to drink- so we asked for a few minutes. She didn’t come back for 15 minutes. It was like this the whole night- we ordered our food and drink at the same time. Food was served by other wait staff. She never checked on us. It took 15 minutes for us to get the bill and another 15 for use to get the card machine. Basically we chose the place because of the quiet atmosphere and reliable food- both of which were good- but I would not go again

The food wasn’t all that great. The pizza was a bit underdone. The Caprese salad could’ve used more than one leaf of basil (it was mostly tomatos with almost non existing dressing).

They don’t have balsamic vinegar for the food or the pizza. The tagliatelle ai funghi was very very bland.

The food took over 45 min, and the cutlery was dirty.

Disappointed, food was below average, service dismal, ambiance was nice. One out of three ain’t bad, but not when you are in the food and service business. The only bright spot was when we arrived, I had made a reservation for 4 but we end d up needing 6, at first the hostess said can’t be done, but after pushing the manager arrived and figured out that we could sit at a sharing table, but we had to push for it. I would go back ever.

Was rudely told we don’t serve aspartame when I️ asked for a Diet Coke. When my husband bought me one next door I️ was told I️ could not have I‎t on the table.
They also don’t allow butter or white sugar. I️ find I‎t impossible to believe that they don’t use white sugar in their baking they just won’t provide it to their paying customers.
We were four eating adults but when the child with us said she wasn’t having anything the waitress grabbed the plate and napkin from in front of her.
Whole experience was ridiculous

Had a wonderful time at La Bettola di Terroni! Terrific food and ambience. Our server was fabulous, explaining the menu options and making recommendations! Loved it and would definitely recommend it to friends and family! Will definitely go back!
Also booking the reservation was very easy and convenient using Open Table.

Ridiculously slow service and a mediocre meal ($26 burrata on rock hard bread!) We were seated on the side that is brightly lit and has the ambiance of a mall food court. Wish I knew that was what I reserving on OpenTable. Not worth the high price point considering how many great places there are to eat in the city. Used to be a go-to spot but I doubt I'll return.

Lack of respect to your clients:

No complaints regarding the food and or service, however very disappointed in a couple of things... One the lack of "everyday essentials" that should be in any restaurant, especially one that promotes itself to the theatre district fine dining crowd. Example would be; martini glass. (so I had my martini in a regular glass) , finer spirits like Jack Daniels, no clamato juice for ceasar drinks, and oddly - Ginger ale ??? Do not understand how a restaurant that does serve mixed drinks could not carry ginger ale... just some very basic things that should be readily available.

Finally, we had several guests that had a seafood pasta and requested parmesan cheese with their meal and were denied. (Theory I guess is cheese and seafood don't mix... I understand the chef not purposely choosing to serve it with cheese, but I DO NOT understand the decision to simply tell your guests no.) I thought this was Rude, Pretentious and Obnoxious and embarrassed me to my guests, let alone embarrassed my guests. Essentially you insinuated they were not "educated" with food.

For this reason I will not be dining here again.

Food was terrific. Service? Not so much. Wasn't provided any information about specials - had to ask.

Requested fresh parm cheese; had to wait too long to get it. Really, it should have been offered when all the pasta dishes were delivered to the table.

1/5 orders was not what was ordered; waitress insisted she was correct. She wasn't.

Overall, the lack of service took away from the experience. Food was delicious. Desserts were also amazing!!

Unfortunately although the food is good there wasn't a decent menu option for the light lunch eg. Salad type with option to add.meat salmon or shrimp
That being said definitely WAY over priced for the work lunch. 2 waters, 2 pastas dishes 2 coffees came to 70.00 .... in my opinion there are numerous other places to lunch/dine and get a better bang for your buck.
My first visit and will be my last.
