this is a terrific restaurant. I prefer being upstairs because it seems to be less noisy than downstairs, but both are good. the food is excellent, but the service really makes the place. the wine by the glass menu is very adequate, the starters are more than enough, and the desserts are very good. the mains change with the availability,...

Nice urban restaurant near Alabama Birmingham college. Very good selection of gulf seafood dishes, Friendly, attentive service and some imaginative combinations. Again, good selection of local craft beers, which seems to be a theme now in Alabama, compared to my first visit here in 2002.

I just had the duck cannelloni with mushrooms, it was great. My wife's fish was great. Must give 5 stars to their white bean soup, excellent.. Frank always does a great job.

A group of eight friends gathered at Bottega to celebrate birthdays recently. The service was absolutely impeccable. Most of us were very satisfied with the food that we were served. I was slightly disappointed in my Braised Shortrib entree which was tough and not very flavorful. My husband was extremely pleased with his Lamb entree, and others in our party... More

The cafe side is my FAVORITE restaurant in Bham BY FAR!!! The drinks are AMAZING, get the "Orange Thang", and the Chicken Scallopini is the best meal I've ever had. Everything on the menu is delicious! It's a must try in Birmingham.

Lunch on a Friday at the Cafe was great! Fast seating, fast and friendly service, and incredible food. The hostess even engaged me in conversation when she saw me drooling over the antique French copper pots display and told me their story. Highly recommended. Be prepared to circle the block a few times if you don't want to valet park... More

Met some old friends for dinner while visiting UAB with our daughter. Nice atmosphere with outdoor seating as well as inside. A little on the pricey side for OK food. Server was OK, but alittle short with some of his responses. I had the crabcrab cake special and my other guest had pizza and mac and cheese. Adequate serving size... More

I am trying to balance the different experiences that I have had here. I have had three really good experiences, and one not good at all. I had one wonderful dinner with my wife there and slowly enjoyed a meal between us celebrating our then 6 months of dating. It was a great experience and I had a wonderful waiter... More
