Restaurants, Italian Upper West Side

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Some restaurants are frequented by people intent on getting a good meal, others by those who just don’t want to dirty a pot at home. Bettola is the latter. A massive oven produces charred thin-crust pizzas with house-made mozzarella and basic toppings. Chewy farro and white beans marry well with chicory salad; tender ravioli are filled with curried lamb and raisins. Owner Sebastiano Cappitta (Acqua, Isola) is blazing a successful trail through the Upper West Side, but some carelessness marred a recent meal, such as a skimpy portion of shrimp with pappardelle (four shrimp, four noodles) and a fish stew that had a whiff of iodine. But if sitting outdoors with a refreshing coffee granita on a patch of fenced-in sidewalk doesn’t exactly transport you to Italy, it does feel mighty neighborly.
