Bettola is Helping. Now, Help Them!
Fans of Bettola ‘Rock and Roll’ Italian – located at 412 Amsterdam Ave, between 79th and 80th Streets – know about their delicious wood oven pizzas, pastas, meats, seafood plates and desserts.
They’ve started a fundraiser to help keep Bettola alive. Donations will be used to rehire Bettola’s staff and to give back to the community by making and delivering meals to first responders. “I wish we could do more but we have very limited resources,” says Giga.

Bettola is the culmination of culinary passion, creativity and global influences, from new owners Giga Leszay and rockstar-turned-chef Vlado Kolenic. Giga managed Upper West Side restaurants by Bettola founder Sebastiano Cappitta for 12 years and jumped at the chance to become owner, but needed a chef.
