Description: Botticelli’s South Congress is a fun and tasty Italian restaurant located in the heart of the exciting "SOCO" district. Botticelli's serves fresh and delicious Italian food combining old family recipes with new, inventive ones. Andrew and Matt Botticelli are the proud owners and are made even more proud by the food that Botticelli's delivers through its amazing staff. There are both an intimate dining room up front and a large beautiful beer garden out back, where there is live music Thursday through Saturday night. Full menu is available inside or out and at either bar. Look forward to seeing you soon.

This is one of my favorite consistently good, small Italian restaurants. All the food is excellent, but if you love Lasagne, you've found the place to eat it. The type of Lasagne changes daily, but the quality does not. One day might be brisket Lasagne, another day, Italian sausage. I also love the Butternut Squash Ravioli with walnuts and sage... More

Before my review, I have to say that the manager gave us a gift card for a future meal as a way to, in her words, "apologize" for the delays in salads and dinners. I also have to say that our meals were outstanding though not as hot as they should have been. I had stuffed chicken; other meals were... More

Found the staff very easy going and friendly. the food was fantastic, the classics were great but the chef specials were dynamite. This place is a must do for a great Italian meal at a good price.

Great hospitality and music. Food was fresh and wonderful. The back garden was romantic and had a open feel.

Four of us dined here on a Friday night. The place has a great feel - like a neighborhood place. The salads were fresh, and entrees were perfect. The dishes are not all standard fare - and the fish dishes were particularly good. The pasta was excellent. Server was great and everyone working there just seemed happy! On a Friday... More

This is not the same ol' Italian standards one is usually finds. I love a menu that surpises and entices with new combinations of fresh ingredients. Botticellis surpassed my expectations. I had read the previous reviews and had been intrigued. I found that not only were the dishes creative and the flavors superbly balanced, but the dishes were beautifully cooked... More

Pricey, but delicious food. My husband enjoyed the duck, I had the ravioli stuffed with mushroom and herbs. Appetizers were yummy. Great service.

This place is one of the best. It's small (cozy) and has a fairly limited menu, but the food is good quality. Three types of meatballs, flavorful ravioli and i think we had Gnocchi too? Get a bottle of wine and enjoy the atmosphere.
