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.
Melbourne food and wine event. Coming in with high expectations. Missing the whow effect on the menu. Risotto rather boring. Food and wine match debatable. (would have matched the nebbiolo with the goat and the gaglioppo with the pasta) most exiting dish:basil ice cream and perhaps the best wine match. Friendly service lovely girls pleasant night but given the price tag and the event we were hoping for that extra notch.
Not flexible with wrong booking. Not customer centred
Dined here for my daughter's birthday. Easily able to book online and the restaurant was easily accessed via the Bourke St tram. There was a good menu form which to choose, including the Express Lunch menu - a feature of a current Melbourne Dining promotion.
The food was delicious, including that for my two vegetarian companions, and the serving sizes were just right: satisfying but not overloading. Our attentive waiter was friendly, but had just conveyed a sense of urgency in his movements and attentiveness. We ignored that and took our time. A good dining experience. I would recommend Bottega to anyone looking for fine dining in the city.
Very stylish place with low lighting and lots of room. We had a booth which was great for conversation and very comfortable. Food was delicious and used lots of local ingredients. excellent and professional service.
We had a very enjoyable meal here on Saturday evening for our anniversary. Great service and delicious food.looking forward to a return visit to try the other menu options.
We had a splendid meal at Bottega. The flavours were amazing and the staff was very pleasant. Wonderful experience. Would highly recommend for special occasions or business lunch/dinners.
Beautiful cozy restaurant with amazing food. Can’t wait to go back!
The food was average especially for the price considering the menuless Italian bistro 2 doors up serves amazing pasta for $10-15... expected something better for $34/main. Got our order and portions wrong. Not the best night out.
I would say it is "ok" nothing special, nothing "offensive" though. It is "safe" as there food is nice and something for everyone
