Housed inside an unassuming strip mall, Bettolino Kitchen aims to give you an unexpected experience that rivals those of the big guns. Owned and operated by 4th generation South Bay Restaurateurs, Bettolino Kitchen takes a modern spin on dishes you would come to expect in a classic Italian restaurant.
All pastas are homemade, desserts are freshly baked, cocktails are scratch-made and decor is a breath of fresh air.

Amazing on all counts - drove from Van Nuys to eat here - lived up to everything and hey it was outdoor seating too! Heat lamps between each table gave sweet ambience- cocktails were great, all food mega tasty. Fully recommend. They got it going on. Pros.

With all the changes this past year, one thing is consistent: excellent food quality, presentation and amount. They are always willing to help with a celebration 🎉 and add that extra touch. Sonya knows what I like and anticipates my needs. Our waiter Nick was new but has the caring qualities to make dining a memorable experience. Thanks! Lynn

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. The food never disappoints! There is always something new to try if that interests you. I tend to order seafood usually the pistachio crusted halibut. Service is perfect. The atmosphere is relaxed. I like the new outdoor dining area.

Had a friend visiting from Canada - we ordered the pesce al pistachio and tortelloni al limone and split it and it was by far the best meal we've ever had anywhere! In fact, we are going back a 2nd time tonight during her short 5 night stay.

I had the Betto Lunch which included a soup made mainly with onions. I did not like the soup at all, too oniony. It was like a bunch of onions were boiled to death and there was no other flavor other than onions. Yeah, some people probably like that but it was not to my liking. All the other dishes were really good though, especially the penne with sausage and the scallop dish.

Food is good, however the service wasn’t great this time around. One of my guests asked for ravioli with meat sauce. The waitress never explained that they didn’t have ravioli, and that the closest thing to it on the menu is tortellini. Therefore, it wasn’t what she was expecting. Still, when she explained that, the waitress said, “well I hope you like it at least.” She never gave her the opportunity to order something new or compensate in some way.

In addition, despite there being so few customers, they (the waitress and the waiter in training who was following her) forgot to bring me the cup of hot water I asked for, and the bread was brought to the table well after it was asked for.

Nonetheless I tipped them very well and will likely not return, which is too bad because I like the food here! But poor service isn’t worth the experience no matter how good the food is.

I celebrated my birthday at my favorite restaurant, Bettolino Kitchen.
My three friends had never been to Bettolino’s. They were amazed and enjoyed the delicious food. Planning to visit next month and we will be eating at Bettolino‘s again.
The food and service were superior as always.

We have always loved eating here however did not appreciate being seated on a sidewalk next to the grocery store and right in front of parking spaces that when a car pulls in your table is illuminated by the headlights.

Service and food were great but won’t eat there again if we are seated in the parking lot!

The food is always fresh and delicious but the customer service was over the top. The waitress and manager checked inn to see how everything was going and my friend, who was there for her first time, was blown away. Bettolino is always consistently good.

Bettolino never disappoints! The homemade pasta is so delicate and delicious. We haven't explored the entire menu but we have loved everything we have had. We always look forward to a special dinner when we choose Bettolino. The service is amazing and there are lots of choices for everyone. We are headed back next week. They are getting busy again since the reopening so be sure to make a reservation for a lovely meal.

An excellent experience overall. The salad was fantastic and my friend was quite pleased with the lobster pasta. I found the gnocchi to be not as successful - unduly heavy with lots of sausage added to the traditionally hearty pasta and mushrooms. But overall I highly recommend this restaurant.
