Gross, filthy, old, smells like a nursing home. The host and owner are snott, rude, condescending, arrogant, and ignorant. The penne pasta with vodka sauce tasted like bath water, zero flavor and definitely NOT homemade, in fact the entire meal was atrocious. When i asked to see Mrs. B, the host refused to tell her!! when she finally came out,... More

It was awful.I ordered it to ready at 430, when I got there the pizzas were sitting in the boxes on a table.... More

This is the first time we ever ate at Bettelli's. It happened to be about 2 blocks away from our hotel. I read some great reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. The pizza was Sicilian in size but thin crust like a round pizza. In an area known for their pizza, this place stands out... More

i have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Italian steamed clams, meat pizza broiled stuffed shrimp. Love the setting and the staff. Not too busy or noisy. This is a warm happy place for me

Bettelli's friendly service reminds me of visiting my family. The staff are very attentive to all our needs. The meatballs are so delicious. We tried Italian style clams for the first time and that is our new favorite appetizer. There are so many choices of wonderful Italian food. I have tried several specials and enjoyed them. The Veal Marsala is... More

Wanting to try something different, me and my wife decided to give Bettelli's Villa a try. We arrived in Bettelli's parking lot shortly after 7pm on a Friday night, and there were only three cars in the parking lot, which for Friday night kind of surprised me. As we walked in the door there was the odor of a nursing... More

I would drive 2 hours just to get this pizza. Truly authentic one of a kind taste. The cappelletti soup brings me back to my grandmother's table. If you want true old school Italian cooking this is the place to be!

This restaurant has been one one of the most overlooked in the wyoming Valley. Maybe its location is to blame, but those in the know certainly have memorized its spot on the culinary scene. Its homemade pizza is out of this world, and if you are lucky enough to be there when Grandma has whipped up some tripe , lasagne... More
