Food was absolutely amazing! I love the main dishes we ordered were so good but I enjoyed the branzino the most. Our waiter was very attentive, checking if we need anything and if we liked the food served. I will definitely recommend this restaurant and will come back.

It was our first time eating inside since the pandemic! Our server was fantastic... she was friendly and prompt. All our meals were delicious. We had the Cesar salad and hearts of palm salad. Dinner... we had the halibut, salmon and branzino. All cooked to our requests. Desert was the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream... yummy. We ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Bettolinos!

DELICIOUS! Every single thing we had was divine. From the starters to dessert. We ordered the balsamic brussels sprouts even though we're kind-of over brussels. But OMG, they were INSANE! Cooked perfectly, not a hard one in the bunch. We ordered a couple more starters and salads, but the dinners really stood out as well as the cocktails. It all was fantastic!

Had been here before a while ago and forgot how great the food is! The lobster pasta was delicious and so was the salmon. They also have a great wine selection. Our waitress, Anne, was so attentive and personable. She made funny conversation and was just overall awesome! Great service and great food!

Pre-Covid, we were regulars at Bettolino. We love their food and service. Today, first visit during pandemic, we had their special LA Dine lunch menu. Enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana and arugula with fresh Parmesan entree very much. A bit pricey but worth it. Generous portions mean dinner for a taken care of.

The food is good authentic Italian food, but right now with outdoor dining it gets cold. They didn’t have any more tables in the tent, so we had to dine completely outside with a heater that wasn’t so great.

Very busy. Dining in parking lot is not my favorite experience, but better than not. Server was very good, but overworked. Food was good, not great. Prices were reasonable. We will be back and look forward to the day when it’s a bit closer to normal.

It was our first time to dine in Bettolino Kitchen. My friend came all the way from Mission Viejo and we came early for our reservation. We were seated within 5 minutes of waiting. Our waiter Colton was very accommodating and helped us the process of going through the menu. Food is great ~~ will surely recommend and comeback. Thank you!

This was my first ever less than outstanding dining experience at Bettolino. All the Covid 19 precautions were in place (masks, distances, etc.), and the outdoor seating was really nice for the four of us. The service, however, was extremely slow and uneven; and one of our four entrees was overcooked and thus mushy and not good. As I said, this is a first for this usually wonderful restaurant, and I can honestly say it will not keep me from going back.

Bettolinos have it wired. This intimate and neighborly dining spot is a Feel Happy kind of place! The staff works like a well coordinated team to make you feel appreciative for coming to the restaurant. They should do workshops for other restaurants on how to make “it” work! Anne the incredible server when I was there, is a human dynamo. She epitomized service w a smile. Food was great! Wine Thursday’s are terrific. Parking is ez. Totally safe from Covid fears!
Luv this place.

It's hard to rate during a time when you're seated up against cars in a parking lot with headlights in your eyes while you eat. They did as good a job as one can expect and the food was good. I'd go back again someday.
