Our Story

La Bettola Italiano is an authentic ‘old school’ Italian restaurant; specializing in combining modern Italian cooking with traditional methodology. Every ingredient is prepared with your satisfaction in mind.

We strive to show our dedication to quality, with every single dish and every customer that walks through the door. That is our mission.

To us, there’s no better feeling than watching a smile come over the face of a customer when they take that first bite. Our chefs are classically trained and have been diligent students of the noble craft for decades.

The difference can simply be tasted.

What They Say

Our Customers Love Us

"This is my absolute favorite place to get pizza in Arlington. Very generous with the cheese and a really good price. I run a lot of long distance races and always look forward to indulging on cheese and gyro pizza afterwards. The dining area is small but comfortable. We've had a couple of their other entrees, and they are also top notch."

– Tara G.


"This place is crazy good! Aziz is a very welcoming server. The whole staff is nice. But the food is on another level. I consider myself a pasta-aholic. I got the chicken Angelica subbing the noodle to fettuccini and getting rid of the marinara (just wine wine sauce). The noodles are perfect texture! The chicken is SO tender & perfectly seasoned."

– D W.


"Read some other reviews and decided to give it a try. So glad we did. Everything was amazing. Great calamari for appetizer and the sub and pasta were fantastic. Wish we had this place in our hometown."

– Doug B.
