Caesar salad very garlicy, which we liked, the blue cheese crust on the steak wasn’t as good as the keg, but overall still very good, fries were excellent, Mac and cheese apply excellent, service excellent, music a bit too loud for so early in the evening.

It was my wife’s 2nd time there and my 1st and it was for our wedding anniversary. I type silly avoid nicer Italian places because the prices are way too high and the portions are for tiny people for what you pay. I was completely impressed for both the portion sizes and the price!! Not to mention the pizza was incredible and the pasta my wife got was the best pasta hands down I have ever eaten in my life. Nice work Bottega we will 100% be back

Food was amazing. Got the bruschetta and lobster mac and cheese for appetizers and the margarita pizza for a main. The pizza was standard but the appetizers were amazing. Loved the atmosphere! Great for date night!

The chicken meal smelt and tasted like fish, the chicken was very pink but I’m guessing safe to eat. Just wasn’t a good meal.

Had a really good meal celebrating my sons 22nd birthday! This was his pick for the night and glad he did! The cocktails menu was super. We tried the Dandelion yum! Meals overall were great, my sons fillet was beautifully cooked medium rare with a great greens salad portion on the side which we all had to try! Our pasta dishes were plentiful and delicious and perfectly sauced! Only minor complaint I had was with the Caesar salad...the croutons were seriously too crunchy or not able to crunch I don’t know. Then desserts...the tiramisu yum! And chocolate gelato with espresso wow! Service was great! Thanks for a wonderful evening out (first Covid outing)!!

Bottega has always delivered an amazing meal accompanied with such professional and pleasant service. The ambiance is always energetic but never so loud that you can't carry on a conversation at your table. Overall, it is a great restaurant and it continues to live up to its great reputation!

The service lacked attention to the guest server barely even said anything no checking how the food was I could tell they were under staffed 2 servers plus a manager and no bartender so service suffered from the guest

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.

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.
