Bettolona

Just weeks after getting its trendy burger joint, the Columbia University area is getting a stylish pizzeria with a wood-burning oven. Sebastiano Cappitta, who brought the brick-oven pizzeria Isola to the Upper West Side back in 1991 and currently owns Bettola and Acqua, will open Bettolona, serving wood-fired pizza and pasta.

"This was my first time at this restaurants. My daughters lives around the corner and brought me here because she loves this place. I can understand why. Perfect find for a lovely and simple meal. We so enjoyed sharing a yummy pizza and arugula salad. The atmosphere was
bright and quite on a weekday but there's enough space that I'm sure can handle a large crowd
at Brunch time or Dinner. I look forward to returning here.

"Stopped for lunch while visiting nearby colleges. Very convenient to subway stop on a safe main road. Ordered two pasta dishes that were served quickly and with generous portions. Definitely coming back for the pizza sometime as we could see it in the oven!"

"Good Italian neighborhood bistro. Food was good and typical bistro and wood fired pizza fare in a nice setting. Service a bit leisurely, but it was a busy rainy Friday night. Pizza and lasagna were very good. Pasta special interesting and creative."

"The food at Bettolona is good but the seating arrangements this past Saturday night were inexcusable. Granted they were busy but I made a reservation and the shoved us in a table for 4 with the 5th chair ion the end which kept getting bumped by the servers and other patrons passing through."

"The waiter literally took our order and took our check. There was no service. The portions were small, which was okay, but the food came out really quickly, which makes me believe that it was pre-made. I definitely won't be going back."

"Have seen Bettolona when passing above on the 1 train and finally had a chance to try it for the first time. The interior is very warm and cozy and the staff is gracious and welcoming. Food is great - we tried a few of their thin crust pizzas, as well as the meatball and spaghetti special. Good servings and everything was freshly prepared and delicious. I'll definitely be coming back again!"

"I have gone to Bettolona since the day it opened 5 years ago when I lived on the same block, and I have never been less than fully satisfied with my food, drinks, and service. I walk in and each time, without looking at the menu, I confidently order the "Special pizza", knowing that whatever they put together will be delicious and unique! The owner is the most wonderful, friendly Italian man who welcomes you into his family each time you step foot into the restaurant. They offer great service, are always attentive to you, and food comes out quickly. Bettolona is my FAVORITE restaurant in the city, and their pizza can seriously compete with the most acclaimed in the city. Food critics need to take a closer look at Bettolona and give them credit where it is due! Even after moving out of the city to Hoboken, my husband and I still make the hour-long trek into the city for every special romantic occasion to get dinner (our engagement and wedding anniversary, Valentine's Day, and birthdays)."

"Bettolona wasn't open on Thanksgiving Day, but I ate there recently with a group of friends and, as always, enjoyed the cuisine, wine, service, ambiance and lovely experience of a lingering Italian dinner and lively conversation. Thanks to everyone at Bettolona for a great neighborhood dining option. bjmtrio"
