It was a wonderful experience. Service was great, music was great and the food was exceptional. My wife and I are foodies so to speak and we have dined in many fine restaurants over the years. Bettolo is a gem in a funky little spot but that is part of its glow and it compares favorably to any Italian restaurant in Colorado. Bravo!

We had an amazing dinner and time at Bettola Bistro! There were three of us, celebrating three different occasions. We each ordered a different (seafood) entree: scallops, shrimp scampi, and fish. We all tasted each dish, along with two appetizers and some (half-priced, for Weds!) bottles of wine. Every dish was melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness!! The service was impeccable, the concierge knowledgeable, the chef spot-on, and the ambience was perfect! Thank you so much for a brilliant night out! I'm so glad we found this place! I've told several friends and colleagues about it. We will definitely be back!!

Amazing food...bravo to the chef. Quite a gem! The ambiance was a bit weak...the cement type floors don't help and it was pretty chilly in there so we ate with our coats on.

This was my first time dining here, and it was amazing! I loved the food and drinks, the personal interaction with the staff, and the size/coziness of the restaurant. I’ve lived in the neighborhood for several years, but was unaware of this hidden gem; and, I will definitely be back often. Thank you!

The balsamic marinated brussels sprouts and the peach caprese appetizers are exceptional and inventive. Partner enjoyed the eggplant parmesan...just right with creamy interior and crunchy exterior. Broth on the Cioppino wasn't quite as flavorful as I've experienced elsewhere (San Fran & New Orleans). Service was very good at the start, but, slowed measurably as the restaurant filled. Overall enjoyed our 1st visit and will return to try other dishes.

Dear Bettola crew - We had a grand time at dinner last night. The appetizers were terrific along with the wine (an wine lesson). The entrees were good. One suggestion for an Italian restaurant: Don't charge extra for parmesan, it seems kinda cheap as the food is not inexpensive. If you need to make up costs, charge for the bread, not everybody can or should eat it anyway.
