138 N 8th St, Brooklyn
Betto didn’t arrive to the crowded Williamsburg restaurant scene with a lot of hoopla but it’s made a huge impression on myself and friends.
The food is pretty much spectacular and not outrageously priced.
For starters, the flatbread with roasted garlic was really something else. Magic happens when garlic is roasted (reminding me it’s something i should do at home more often) and mixed with warm, fluffy flatbread and a touch of lemon? Well, it was hard to share this one.
The crostinis are also a must order. I opted for a thick gooey chicken liver but the options are vast.
Salad wise, brussel sprouts were great, sun chokes were good but a bit dull in comparison with other dishes.
Main dishes are incouraged to be shared but we found they worked better as individual l dishes (trading bites of course!).
I loved my spicy chicken that was bursting with flavor but my friends spaghetti dishes were deliciously comforting and the calamari was tender and well spiced.
We finished with a nice cheese plate and a decadent chocolate dessert that could only be described as thick chocolate paste. Delicious but one to share with many.
The only complaint was that it was unreasonably chilly but otherwise the atmosphere is inviting and the food perfect. Can’t wait to return.
