Have eaten at Bottega many times over the past years. Have always enjoyed it very much. Was a little disappointed on this last visit with a couple of our menu choices.
This used to be a favourite, often visited.
Sadly, a return visit after a long absence proved most disappointing.
Great ambience, great staff and great food - best tiramisu and red snapper I’ve had in a long time - also very good and sensibly priced wine list
Ideal location close to theaters & hotels, food outstanding, a must !
Lovely service, great food and reasonable priced. A neighborhood gem
Ambiance was terrific and service was very good. Unfortunately the duck was tough, very disappointing.
The handmade pasta with duck was simply amazing. And staff is very attentive and customer orientated. Highly recommend it.
Very enjoyable will be back. Service staff friendly and good atmosphere
Always enjoyable - great wine, food with a twist. We go whenever we are in melbourne
We celebrated a special birthday occasion for one of our group with dinner. The food was superb and the service excellent, Bottega were very accommodating by allowing us to move 2 tables together for our group. Thanks again, we will return soon!
It was amazing! Very romantic and the food was spectacular!
I loved the ricota nhoque! The waitress are very friendly.
Very friendly staff. Good menu. Had the pre theatre two courses and found it to be great value
Everything was superb. All of the dishes were outstanding as was the service. The staff’s goal of ensuring that patrons had a memorable experience was truly evident.
Fabulous evening . Delicious food , superb atmosphere and wonderful attentive staff. Perfect for a special occasion.
Staff were very attentive
We were visiting from Sydney and visited for a date night. Food was very good and a healthy wine list with plenty of choice of local and Italian wines.
Prompt service, delicious meal great location for pre theatre meal
The food was delicious, and it matched the incredible service and upscale atmosphere. I will return when I am in town, and considered a second visit during my short time in Melbourne.
It was a delightful afternoon. Paul looked after us so well and made us so welcome. so good that I have booked a table with another friend next week!!
Excellent food and service. Would be happy to recommend for dinner for a special occassion.
Nice feel to the restaurant.
Seafood was great.
Pasta & risotto were cold and not great in flavour didn't look inviting on the plate. Disappointing being italian.
Delicious food that ticked every box.... wine list did the same! Perfect for my friend's Birthday Lunch.... totally looked after service wise and not rushed along. Will return again and again for sure!
Wonderful lunch, excellent personal service & scrumptious lunch, love this place : )
We were in the city for a celebratory dinner. The menu was good and our meals were delicious. Would definitely return!
I had the duck as a main course and only ate half as it was tough.
Very disappointed. Food very average to poor on some dishes. Expected much more from the food.
Service on the night was fantastic.
The waiter was well-informed but not overbearing very friendly.
Looked for a few places to eat in the city and booked for dinner. Arrived and were seated then forgotten about, they came back to read the specials then walked away. Several times we needed to call someone over to take drinks orders. Food was amazing, everything we ordered was delicious. Great lamb pasta highly recommend. Disappointed in the overall experience due to the lack of attentiveness of the staff.
Lovely food, knowledgable and friendly staff. Very pleasant evening - Bottega provided a convival environment and delicious food. Handled gluten free very well. Will certainly be returning.
The perfect place to spend a winter evening with a special person .
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. the service was wonderful and the food was delicious. Atmosphere lovely. Will be back!
Lovely Pre theatre dinner with family. Excellent food and service.
Awesome meal here as always. Great staff also . The kitchen staff delivered a great tasting meal
The food was great, service good and atmosphere was good. I was asked on reservation if it was a special occasion and I ticked yes “birthday” but there was absolutely no recognition of that, disappointing.
Fantastic place to come for our 13th anniversary.
Good gluten free options as long as you don't mind not having pizza or pasta.
Awesome house made ice cream.
Entertainment book discount made it even better :-)
Food and service is always good. Great pre theatre menu. By the time we left at 7.00pm it was just about full, on a Thursday evening.
Bottega was absolutely great - food, ambience and service! Highly recommended.
It's always a pleasure to sup at Bottega. The means are reliably delicious. We expect to be treated to a feast and are never disappointed.
Great food and wine. Excellent service. A really enjoyable night out at the Food and Wine Festval.
