I have been here several times and have enjoyed it, tonight was different. The front of house was terrible tonight from the minute we walked in the door. I booked a table weeks ago, they were less then half full but insisted the table at the front door was all that was available, immediately told us we had a time limit to be there, did not have the first 2 drinks we ordered or 2 dishes (at the dinner service) then ignored us. I am bummed. The food is great and our previous experiences have always been good.

Not a bad experience, just not up to the hype. They didn't do anything wrong, they just didn't really do anything that was above the basics. The food was okay, the service was okay, the decor was okay. But I was paying too much for just okay. There are too many restaurants in town that go above and beyond to provide a truly satisfying experience that I don't need to put up with just okay anymore. We have gone beyond the point where something catastrophic needs to happen to get a bad review. I found Bottega to be truly mediocre in every way.

Went into Bottega last night for some wine and pizza. The place never lets us down! Great staff, great food, and the management was very interactive. Highly recommend for anyone in Edmonton who wants a different ambience than your typical Joey or cactus club.

While drinks were a little on the pricey side everything else was amazing! Atmosphere was cozy yet comfortable. Service was quick and friendly, and the food was absolutely delicious! Make sure you make a reservation as this place fills up fast for obvious reasons!

Service was phenomenal, for a table of 7, our server remembered all our orders and drinks without a hiccup :)
Food was delicious and server was there when needed. Music was good but a little too loud, very difficult to hear our table conversations.

We greatly enjoyed our meal at Bottega. The red wine sangrias were delicious; the caesar salad topped with salmon, and the pear & goat cheese salad with grilled chicken, were both excellent. However the noise level - from both the music and the conversations - was such that the two of us, hoping for an intimate dinner, had to yell across our table in order to be heard. Maybe this was because the restaurant has no sound-absorbing surfaces, or maybe because it was a Friday night before a big event downtown. Either way, the noise level really detracted from our overall experience. Maybe we will try again midweek when it might
be quieter.

Came to Bottega for a birthday celebration and we were disappointed with the service. The table was a table for 6 that they squeezed 8 of us into so we were knocking elbows throughout dinner. The food was good but service was slow. One persons meal was forgotten. One of the waitresses did not want to serve us and told us to wait a few minutes when we tried to ask for some chili flakes.
Bills were all mixed up with the wrong drinks and dishes on each persons bill. The penne was way too spicy to eat.

The food was great for the most part, got a salmon dish and had to send the back to the kitchen not once but twice due to it being very undercooked in the center. The staff handled it very professionally and were apologetic.

Bottaga was a awesome atmosphere, and we were really looking forward to a great meal. I got the chicken Alfredo, and was very disappointed. I would not go back, and definitely do not recommend the Alfredo. Really disappointed.

We live across the street from Bottega, and have been here a couple times for lunch on the weekend, the pizza and salads were great. This visit we had pasta dishes, my Wife had the abruzzi rigatoni and I had the spaghetti carbonara. The rigatoni had an overwhelming amount of oil in it, and was over salted, it looked like it could be a soup from across the table. My carbonara, also had a pool of oil at the bottom, I believe the sauce was broken. Needless to say, we both ate less then half of our dishes, and refused to take home the leftovers. The waitress offered us a partial discount for one of the dishes for compensation. It would take a lot for us to come back here again, especially with the price you pay.

Service staff carried out casual personal conversation in a group around the bar in between tasks. The bar was very close to our table and I found this unprofessional and disruptive to our conversation/dinner. A member of the kitchen staff was in the kitchen eating a meal in plain sight during our dinner. The food overall was good. My wife had the Lobster Linguine, which she loved. I had the Rigatoni Abruzzi, which I thought had good flavour, but it was overly greasy.

The Wine on the menu are spelt incorrectly & they don’t list the year of each bottle - absurd!!!
Never seen Pizza cooked in a stone oven & served as a white crust-no color - should have some nice golden dark color - they have no idea how to Cook pizza in a stone oven.

The food was amazing. The first server we had was terrible - brought us warm water, was having a personal conversation with a coworker while we waited to have our order taken (there was only one other table of two), asked us if we wanted a dessert menu before we had even gotten our meals. The second server we had was so great though and made up for it, but I would tell people that service here is hit or miss and slow.

Been here a few times and is usually pretty good. The server definitely got overwhelmed as she had a large party in addition to ours and I believe a couple other tables, otherwise was super friendly and attentive. My first dish (the tagliatelle) was not the greatest. It was super bland and watery but In the end I switched it out for the rigatoni and that was very good! Also, the table by the door was a little awkward when the larger tables started coming in or leaving. Got a bit chilly but not the end of the world. Overall, we had a fun time and I am actually going in again next weekend with a larger party so obviously I'll be back!

The food was excellent. The wine, however, was over priced in comparison to the food. I would recommend the owners consider offering some lower priced options. Also for much of the wine there was little to no savings if you bought it by the glass or the bottle.
The reastaurant is trendy and comfortable and the food was outstanding. However, the music was so loud we had to yell across the table to talk and it impacted our desire to go back. Turning the music down so you can still hear it but also the company you are with will increase my parties desire to attend regularly. Also important to note. Bathrooms were clean.

We had a date night here in late January. The food was really good and we found the price of the food and drinks to be quite good. My only complaint would be that the place was completely empty when we arrived and the hostess seated us 12 inches from the other table. The owner seemed to sit in the corner and watch the restaurant and flirt with the young female servers. It was odd. The service itself was awesome and I would go again.

First time at Bottega 104 for us and another couple and really enjoyed ourselves. The small sized charcuterie board was more than enough for sharing as everyone ordered a main dish. They had gluten free options and were able to make dairy free adjustments which we appreciated. Would return and would recommend!
