Went to Bettola (79th and Amsterdam)with my wife and children this evening. It's a nice place and we had an enjoyable meal. The pizzas were very good, as has been noted on this board, although I personally prefer them just a little less crisp (but that's clearly a matter of personal preference). The seafood soup was also good; we were slightly less impressed with the grilled calamari and spelt salad starters.
On the whole, it's a good neighborhood place, although it can't compete with the top UWS trattorias (Celeste and Gennaro) let alone the downtown places IMHO.
