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

An easy walk from Hilton Terminal 5 Hotel. Much better atmosphere and food than overpriced airport hotel. Wine choices excellent. Would certainly go again.

I visited here as we were staying in the area after visiting Harry Potter Studio Tour for my daughters 21st birthday. We had a lovely night and the food and service was excellent. Would definitely visit again and recommend to anyone who was visiting/staying in the area.

My team and I (10 total) had a great deal of celebrating to do after a job well done on a recent project. I chose this cute, quaint place because the photos showed great promise. I was right! The service was amazing. The food had us nearly licking our plates and we loved the decor! There were actual grapevines with grapes hanging above our heads. This place was excellent and I would absolutely recommend it!! We will be returning. I only regret not taking more photos to share....

We went there for a family meal as my daughter was flying to Italy the next day and this seemed an excellent way to start her trip.
Having not been there for year and our last experience wasn't great. I had heard it was under new ownership and we decided to give it go.
What can I say, the whole restaurant had been refurbished and had an excellent atmosphere. The staff were all friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. There was something on the menu for everyone. The food was superb and compliments to the chef.
I can't wait to return and can highly recommend this restaurant, it was a fantastic experience. Thank you for a wonderful evening

The food was quite nice but pricey. We ordered cocktails and once they arrived, they said that they didn’t put in exact fruit because it went off which I feel like we should have been told before hand. We asked for some water with our mains too which took about 20 minutes to come and even when we wanted to order the food, I think they forgot about us due to where we were sitting because it took about 15 minutes for them to come over.

What a lovely traditional Italian. We took the kids for tea and it is family friendly place where the children got to play in the restaurant garden whilst we waited for our food. Food was delicious and reasonably priced.

Food was great, but surprisingly no penne pasta available- this was explained when we ordered. One of the meals we ordered was wrong, but this was soon rectified and a free drink was offered.
Very attentive, welcoming and friendly staff.
We didn’t feel at all rushed and was therefore able to say goodbye properly to my Brother who was flying home the next day.

Superb food!
Service was attentive and polite, with only limited delays which are necessary to provide fresh and individually prepared meals.
I would recommend to anyone visiting the Slough / Heathrow area.
Next time, I would like to sit in the main restaurant, rather than in the conservatory, which was a littel chilly.

Booked this restaurant as a result of checking reviews of various restaurants not far from Heathrow Airport. I was very pleased with this choice. The food was delicious- authentic Italian food in a rustic environment. Would highly recommend this restaurant for great Italian food and wine. I shall return , and consider this a little gem for those staying at Heathrow hotels, who want to dine away from hotel.

Great in every way. We realised upon me going on a trip to the restrooms that we were the last party at the restaurant. The staff never gave us any indication of this - which was SO NICE ! Usually I feel very unwelcome as soon as this occurs, but not at New Bettola. Food, staff and ambiance was wonderful. It’s no wonder why late on a Monday night they were still very busy.

The food is fabulous. We had scallops to start, then ribeye with roasted baby potatoes and rocket salad for mains and the panna cotta to finish. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and the ambience was perfect.

Nice restaurant. Good food. Reasonable value.

Service was a little slow, probably because of a large group who sat down not long before us, but we were in no particular hurry.

Unfortunately, one of the kitchen staff left the toilet without washing his hands. Poor show that spoilt anotherwise pleasant visit.

Booked here as fed up with Mr Todiwala's Indian at Hilton T5 (gone down hill in our opinion) , and New Bettola was a simple walk around the corner, so we took a chance....

The food and service was very nice indeed, we really enjoyed our meal here. The wine choice suited us nicely although perhaps a little over priced, but didn't detract from our enjoyment. The restaurant is quite casual and has a very comfortable ambiance.

Would recommend and will for sure eat here again when staying at the Hilton T5.

The restaurant is very cosy and proper italian style. The stuff is friendly and delivered a good service. The pizza however is not the best, too thin and hard and not enough topping. Bill was quite pricy too, but I wouldn't mind it if the pizza would have been nicer and tasty. Tiramisu is nice.

What a delightful restaurant that serves out-of-this-world delicious Italian feed. Our choice of a shared appetizer and our main courses were a delight to the palate and to the eyes! Bravo to the chef! A special round of appreciation for the wait staff who were charming, personable and thoroughly professional.

A wonderful evening.
