    Our dinner at Bottino stands out as one of the best I've ever had. The mezzo luna pasta was extraordinary, likewise the bronzino. Service was great, beautiful room, aesthetic but not at all pretentious. I'm ready to go back already.

    Overall the food was delicious. The apps were yummy. My boar shank was excellent although the meat was tepid and risotto was piping underneath. BUT the pepper in the cavatelli was a bit over powering even after I asked if it was hot as it was for my fiancee. Shes not a fan of spicy. It still left a tingle on my tongue and I enjoy a little heat. Kinda ruined the dish. In spite of the chefs heavy hand with the black pepper.. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Was rushed by the servers which makes an unsatisfactory dining experience. The artichoke appetizer was over salted. The steak we ordered was overcooked. An over all lackluster dining experience. Very disappointing as I had heard great things about the restaurant. Update. - it was probably an off night, so don’t let my reviews dissuade anyone from making a reservation. That said Bottino reached out to me and graciously responded to my review. I will give them another try and feel I won’t be disappointed a second time around.

    Once again, Bottino outdoes itself. Start with a lovely tented garden with heaters for those of us who still need to sit outdoors. Then, there is impeccable service. Just right. There when you need them, but not overdone. The food, as always is delicious. Most of all is their willingness to make modifications for those of us dietary restrictions. Bravo Bottino!

    Bottino has established itself as our go-to place to dine when taking in the Chelsea art scene. Location is perfect; ambience is casual while maintaining an appropriate degree of elegance; food quality is fantastic: last night's branzino was superb; value is excellent.

    Ordered the prix fixe menu for Valentine's Day. Food was fairly basic, not much flavor, overall disappointing. The service was quick and attentive, but overly so to the point of rushed and overbearing. While I waited for my partner to arrive I was asked if I want to order my drink by 4 different people.

    Romantic dinner to celebrate a birthday in New York - could not have been better. Quiet corner lit with a thousand point lights and reflections in the darkened windows of a January night. The cacio e pepe was masterful, it’s difficult to do well and there’s nowhere to hide in this Roman classic dish, but the chef has got this one down perfectly. Surprise chocolate ganache with a candle to end a birthday occasion. We were so happy. We will be back.

    Went to dinner after a broadway matinee. Easy ride to the restaurant from the theater. Met the nicest people at Bottino. Great service, very attentive. Food was terrific from the appetizers to the bread pudding for desert. A must try for excellent Italian food in NYC. Parking garage right across the street and a quick shot through the Lincoln tunnel if coming from Jersey.

    Highly recommend. Excellent service by Nadia and Anthony! Neat, clean space with bar up front. We went on a quiet midweek night this month. Delicious pasta bolognese, lamb chops, huge salad with tasty toys, excellent desserts of pear or apple tart, tiramisu. I would have given food 5 stars but the fried brussels sprouts and artichoke hearts (separate dishes. One listed as a side, the other listed as an appetizer) were ‘heavy’ from the frying process. Not bready, but unctuous /rich. Regardless, this may appeal to some people. Either one could have been split by 3-4 people. We were a deuce, and we ended up overordering. The night was capped with congratulatory and complimentary prosecco AND digestivo when we mentioned that we were in town to put up my husband’s art show in Chelsea. Bravo Nadia and Anthony. We will definitely return!

    We went this time to celebrate a 60th birthday, and Bottino pulled out all the stops for us. Everything was perfect. We always feel special there, but this time, Bottino really outdid themselves. Each course was ordered after the previous one, so we had plenty of time to sit, eat, talk, and enjoy the evening. The special oxtail ragu pasta and lamb chop main were phenomenal. And they made red velvet cake special for the birthday girl. We always feel like family at Bottino.

    EXTREMELY noisy! And the way that they had a three-top set up next to our table, I felt that the diner’s back was encroaching on our table. I’ve eaten at Bottino many times, and this was the first time I had a negative experience.

    Thank you so much for your feedback -- I am so sorry for this experience -- the holiday weeks are very busy with events and they do make it unusually loud. I know your previous ecperiences were better and rest assured this is not the new normal! We do hope you will return again soon in the new year and hope we do not disappoint the next time!
