We were happy to see that Bottega stayed open during these difficult pandemic times. We had the lobster ravioli and carne pizza; both were excellent. Our favourite Luca Malbec complemented the great food. Our server was extremely attentive and outgoing. I highly recommend this restaurant in a great downtown setting.

This was our first time dining at Bottega and we will be back. Wishing we had a heads up on the generous portions as we probably would have shared our salad and entree but the food was delicious and the service was wonderful! The lobster ravioli was fabulous and their cocktail menu is lovely too.

Service and food was great. I ordered the lamb shanks. Very good. Way to much they could cut the portion in 1/2 along with the price and still have a great deal. we where going to the hockey game so could not take the remaining food with me

It was mediocre. Not a traditional Italian place. They need to teach their cooks on how to cook a steak. Asked for medium-rare got medium to well done. Thinner cut of steak should have been on the grill for 4 minutes total. That steak was so dead and dry they had to reconstitute it with lots of garlic butter. The side of Brussel sprouts was done in a overly sweet soy based sauce that made it hard to eat. The salad that came with the steak was sweet as well. Way too much sweet based food what ever happened to savory Italian flavors??

Great food, decent service. My only real complaint would be that it was very drafty and cold in the restaurant throughout our meal. I ended up wearing my jacket for a majority of the time that we were there.

Had a wonderful Valentine's dinner experience. Darian took care of us, she was amazing. We had some other staff members look after us as well, they were great too but unfortunately I didn't get their names. Food, people and atmosphere all top notch. We'll definitely be back.

Overall it was a pretty good experience. The staff was FANTASTIC. They were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. The food I found hit and miss. Appetizers were amazing, entree was ok, dessert wasn't bad. It is extremely close quarters and loud. When the couple next to us went to leave we actually had to slide our entire table over to make room for them to leave. Overall it is a good restaurant.

Met some friends for dinner and couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more. Food was delicious! I recommend the mussels or the lobster linguine. Dessert we had gelato, three scoops. Great night out

If you want a downtown loud buzz experience, go here. If you are looking for a nice quiet italian-ish place to eat this is not it. Tables are very close together, we didnt have cutlery when our food came, water was not refilled until end of the meal. It was before a hockey game, so of course was a little extra busy.
Best thing about an early hockey game was making it here for Happy Hour, cocktails were delicious and was the better part of our experience.

It was lovely. We all enjoyed the drinks and the appetizers were amazing- especially the risotto balls!

4/5 of us had great food but the chicken alfredo was underseasoned.

I will be returning with my husband- we are always looking for new spots with great food!

Meal was excellent and service was great once they noticed that we were seated. It was about 10 minutes before someone came to take our drink order once we were seated.

Delicious. Lots of seafood options. Only thing missing is a couple more tomato sauce pasta options. Meatballs were fantastic. Excellent service. Good wine list. Reasonable prices.

Consistent as always...Bottega will forever be one of my favourites.
The only minor tiny issue the visit we had there, was having to ask them for fresh ground pepper than having them offer it to us, and it wasn’t very busy at that time but overall, I refuse to be that person that looks for something to complain about.
Bottega is the best of the best in thin crust pizza, ambience, and catering to special occasions.

My girlfriend and I visited to celebrate her birthday. During the reservation setup on Open Table, I left a note saying that it would be great if they could wish her a happy birthday on arrival. The staff did much more than that and went well above and beyond. Our reserved table was specially decorated and two glasses of sparkling wine awaited us as we sat down. We were even given dessert to share on the house. The staff were very courteous and attentive. Overall, a very wonderful experience!

The service was great and the food was decent. Not a fan of the decor though. The lighting on the side of the room we sat at was like a dentists office and the tables were pushed so close together we could have eaten off of the table next to us. I also think the price point is higher than it has any right to be.

The server was very nice and friendly but the seafood pasta was not very good at all, the lobster was beyond tasteless and overall the whole pasta was. The portions were a good size but overall I would not recommend or return to this location.
