The food was delicious-start to finish. Appetizers, entrees, and dessert. All were happy. The only thing we all didn’t love was the servers attitude. The place was pretty empty for a Saturday night bc of the COVID situation-understandable. We were doing our best to have some normalcy and keep businesses in business. But our server had such a snarky attitude with us for no apparent reason. She spoke condescendingly and quite arrogantly (especially when she attempted to pronounce the food in Italian properly-which she didn’t do successfully). She was nice to another larger table, but not particularly to us. We were still very nice to her and tipped her well, but it definitely put a damper on what would otherwise have been a perfectly pleasant evening. Would like to see some service training for her. The other person who helped her out and brought our food was lovely. He deserves a gold star. She does not (there were only the two there that night at that time).

Service was outstanding. Food was very good and wine recommendation was spot on. As a slightly out of the way but very convenient spot, you will not be disappointed.

Food is always good but the service is lack lustre. We have been twice in the last week and both times the level of service was not what we were expecting. In both instances we did not find the servers particularly friendly, fast or attentive.

fabulous European style set up. Food and wine absolutely amazing quality.
Service with a big smile and a very experienced waitress who knew of a dish that was previously had but was not on the menu. The waitress knew it had moved to a vegetarian menu. My daughter was so happy!

Worst Restaurant that I have ever been at, they refused to remove clams from the pasta dish I ordered, ( I cannot eat shellfish.)
“ they stated they never make any changes to a dish” no matter what the circumstances.
They suggested a very basic pasta dish on the menu, I asked for cherry tomatoes to be added: they flatly refused. Despite cherry tomatoes being on other pasta dishes.
Will never go back there and will be telling all my friends to never go there.😡

Went to Celbrate my 50 th Birthday with colleagues . We work in the service industry (flight attendants ).
What a disappointment .
Waitress was not pleasant, she was completely miserable . Could not even fake a smile .
So disappointed.
Do yourself a favour walk South to Wellington St and go to Cantina Mercotta . Wish this is where I would have celebrated instead but thought we would try something new . Would not recommend based on service .

Fun space but very tight! Difficult to walk between tables. Felt that the prices are a bit high for what you get....pasta with cheese sauce and black pepper ( no other signif ingredients) for 20+ dollars

We were here for a pre theatre lunch and enjoyed a salad and pizza. Both were very good and arrived quite promptly. Noise level picked up a bit as a large group was seated near to us.

The food is amazing, I've never had better pasta than this authentic fresh Italian restaurant. The service was slow however, I understand it was busy but it took a lot of time just to get water, bread, drinks and paying for our checks in the end. Nonetheless I recommend this place, the food is definitely worth the price!

The service was on point, but the food was lack lustre. We were disappointed since we’ve heard so much good. The salmon was good but the lobster gnocchi was bland and there was 1.5 tiny pieces of lobster. Perhaps we’ll try another location before giving up

Very disappointed. We were there early and given a table in the cafeteria looking side - it was my birthday which I hadn’t mentioned. The hostess barely looked at us and certainly was anything but friendly. We left after our glass of wine.
Had been really looking forward to it.

I found the noise level off putting... not energetic. Toddlers running around and screaming unattended by their parents a total turnoff for a pre theatre restaurant. The pasta special of the day was dry and the pizza lacked cheese. And you refuse to make any substitutions. I agree with my friends that you are not worth a repeat attendance

The restaurant was nice and the food was okay but it was a little overpriced for what it was and for what else is nearby. There is only one bathroom.
I probably would not go again but there was nothing wrong with the place or the food.

Hi Rachel, thank you for your 4-star review. Our prices are reflected in the high quality ingredients that we use in every one of our dishes. Our olive oil comes from Puglia where there are fields of olive trees dedicated to Terroni, our flour comes from a third-generation family run mil in the Marche and our pasta is made in house fresh on a daily basis. Please know there are 4 bathroom stalls at La Bettola. We hope you consider returning for your next authentic Italian meal. Have a nice day :)

Dinner with friends before theatre. The server was aware we attending the theatre. She was attentive and mindful of our timeline. This allowed us to enjoy that part of the evening in a relaxed manner.
The food was a disappointment. Bread arrived - two pieces for four people. How does that work?
Suggestion to the kitchen or server - please advise diners at to how the kitchen prepares certain items. The duck arrived too rare for one of our guests. She asked if the kitchen could cook it a little more. The server took the duck away, but sadly it returned without much difference. Our guest left more than half of her meal on her plate. The Tiramisu was a huge disappointment. It arrived as a plastic container filled with whip creme and cocoa powder. Where was the mascarpone and the lady fingers soaked in coffee liqueur? Ahh, La Bettola, my memories of delicious meals in the past were not replicated this time around.

So many great restaurants in Toronto, it's unfortunate that this is not one of them. The concept is great, but the food quality of food is below what a good Italian restaurant should be. It's fair, just not good and definitely not great.
