A superb Italian restaurant located in Colnbrook, mere moments from Heathrow yet in a pleasant village situation, La Bettola is the pride and joy of owner Raimondo Cagnino. Within Colnbrook Lodge, a large Victorian building full of old fashioned character, Cagnino and his team have created an attractive dining room with a classic look and upmarket yet friendly feel. Wonderful for al fresco dining, La Bettola comes in to its own during the summer when visitors are invited to enjoy their meal on the large patio, overlooking the Lodge’s traditional gardens. Considered to be one of the best Italian eateries in the area, La Bettola offers traditional food from throughout the country, all freshly home cooked to authentic recipes. A vast selection of options are available on the menu, including not only pasta dishes but grills, meat, fish and vegetarian choices as well as excellent traditionally cooked pizzas. In addition to the restaurant, the Lodge also offers a handful of rooms for those

Been going to New Betolla for a while now, it is the only restaurant that my husband likes to go to as he doesn't like eating out generally. We love everything about it - the food, the staff, the ambience, the décor, the music. It is just perfect. Their seafood pasta is amazing, but as I am avoiding carbs, I have switched to their ribeye steak and every time it is perfectly cooked, piping hot and full of flavour. And the homemade peppercorn sauce is to die for! There is so much on the menu, it is difficult to choose. The garlic bread is also very popular. We have taken various friends & family there and they all love it. We have been since lock-down and we felt totally safe, the tables were separated, the staff wear masks & gloves and there is an app to order your food. It didn't work on my phone, but they had hardcopy menu's available. We have seen the restaurant get busier since we first started going and we couldn't be happier for them and wish them every success going forward. Thank you.

It’s a great restaurant, very authentic south Italian food. But I think it’s overpriced for what it is. I hadn’t been since it was revamped and they have changed the menu and the prices, lots of variety on the menu. Staff were lovely, one kept trying to convince us to get the steak even when we weren’t in the mood for it. Lovely warm lighted atmosphere, music a bit too loud so had to shout over it for conversation and the radiators were on full blast so was sweating at some points

No issues to raise as it was a pleasant dining experience with very friendly staff, other than 10% service charge added to bill for 2 adults and a child.?Prefer to leave tip rather mandatory addition to bill????

Smashing evening at the New Bettola for Valentine's Day. Our first visit, and won't be our last. I'd heard good things from friends, and had high expectations, that were more thans matched.

Such a shame. We found the restaurant on line when looking for somewhere to take some relatives who were staying at Heathrow for one night. Location was ideal BUT our evening was ruined as no conversation was possible as they had a huge 60th birthday party in the adjoining room. The door was open as otherwise the very hardworking staff could not have brought anything through.
At no point did any member of staff make any apology or even mention it. The food was fine, very generous portions, served hot but we didn't even consider a dessert as we just wanted to get out!
Tbh I think the restaurant should have been closed for the private event or thru should not have been allowed the music and live singer, who was utterly awful. We had to walk through the party to access the toilets and it appeared that the restaurant guests too would have prefferd the bold to have been lowered.

If you go do check if they have a party and if so steer clear.
Otherwise enjoy your evening in a we run, pleasantly staffed traditional Italian restaurant.

Visited with 8 work colleagues for our Christmas meal on 12th Dec. Seated in the rear area which was initially a bit noisy given the heavy rain falling on the plastic roof. But the rain eased, and as more people arrived the ambience improved with conversation becoming the loudest noise.
Served drinks and our starters very quickly, and all commented on the quality of the food.
After a reasonable pause our Mains arrived, and again all were excellent. Of particular note was the Whole Fish cooked in Salt, where the drama of serving added to the overall experience.
Will definitely pay a return visit to this excellent Italian restaurant, so close to our office at Harmondsworth.
