My boyfriend and I were really excited about eating here, having walked past it on several occasions. My bf had booked a table for dinner a couple weekends ago, and we arrived on time to see our table wasn't available. we were not too bothered about this and were happy to wait a couple of minutes. However, 15 minutes later,... More

Bottega was recommended to me by a friend who is London foodie. Boy, was she right about this spot. It is tiny. Make a reservation and forget about it during the busy times. The menu changes daily.

Visited the restaurant last year and it was a real pleasure. The food and the service were great. Best Italian restaurant I have visited in years and one of the best meals I had in an restaurant lately - the pumpkin gnocchis were absolutely amazing and the wine recommendation for the dish was spot on. The atmosphere was perfect -... More

On initial entry this seems like a reasonably characterful authentic Italian resturant. However our group was shepherded to sit infront of the kitchen with a wait of 15min before even being offered a drink menu. That was all simply frustrating but no biggie in the grand scheme of things. What really brought this place down was its seafood pasta dishes... More

We booked our Christmas event here and had dinner with 15 people on a big table downstairs. The food was really tasty in particular the pumpkin truffle gnocchi. Service was great and really friendly staff. Would definitely recommend anyone to have dinner at this restaurant. Well done!

Our friends had reserved a table for 4, and had the e-mail to prove it. But there was an awkward moment when it was discovered there was none reserved and the initial response as to offer us a table at the sister restaurant in Wapping! However when it became clear this wasn't going to work miraculously a table was found... More
