We are not local to this area but discovered La Bettola last year when we were about to fly from Heathrow the next morning. Rather than succumb to "airport hotel" food we were glad to find an Italian place fairly close to where we were staying. The menu is imaginative, the prices reasonable, the wine good and the service excellent.... More

Dinner at this restaurant was fab, started with capriciosa pizza and followed with lamb chops for main. Great service and food means we'll be back next time we have a stopover at T5. The owner is quite a character, and makes a fuss of his guests. Good job guys!

Visited here before flying out of Heathrow it was a nice change from eating in the airport. From the out this looking like a converted house and not much else. However, once inside were faced with a truly Italian family in fact I think the host showing to our table was probably at least 80... The Food: One word is... More

A good, very Italian Restaurant not far from any LHR airport hotel. Nice food at fair prices for the area. Just be aware that some of the main courses do not include vegetables and you may need to pay extra for these.

Myself and colleagues have been staying at the Holiday Inn T5 three to four times a month for over two years, and up until a week ago we had always turned left and walked onto the High Street. Last week another colleague joined us, and suggested that we turn left and walked the 100 yards or so to La Bettola.... More

Ideal for a typical Italian meal. As I'm not a big pizza or pasta fan and didn't fancy a heavy steak I went for Whitebait to start and Liver & Onions for main, which were both very good, in fact the best Liver & Onions I've ever had. Complimentary black olives & bread went down well. As this is virtually... More

Our first and only time at this restaurant was ruined by a cold ignorant female member of staff who without checking the book properly told us we did not have a reservation even though we had called and booked ahead for a special anniversary dinner with reserved table After asking to speak to her manager and politely explaining we had...

I went to the restaurant one evening. I was surprised that amongst all these hotels and residential streets I found this family run restaurant. The service was good. The waitresses were always willing to help especially when I asked for recommendations. I had the bucatini Alfredo which was nice and creamy and flavoursome. I though there were a few too... More
