Passed through Birmingham on route to a family reunion and booked dinner at Bottega on the strength of their reviews. It's always a delight to find a restaurant that surpasses even the most glowing reviews. This is not just a "good restaurant for Birmingham" - they could hold their own in San Francisco or New York -- and at a... More

Bottega has great reviews and they are all correct.This Birmingham restaurant exceeded our expectations. The menu changes daily. The porceta was prepared especial well with butter beans and roasted okra. The risotto of the day was as good as it gets. Try the salumi starter is well presented and very good. The gelatto for desert was top notch.Great service.

A real treat by a generous host and an opportunity to sample a top restaurant in the company of someone who is a regular. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, the owners were visible and welcoming. The food was excellent. My colleague was able (as was the waiter) to explain each option on the menu - I opted for the... More

Of the excellence we experienced here. We were only in Birmingham for one day, and wanted a nice little spot to have dinner. We have pretty high dining expectations, and Bottega exceeded all of them! The atmosphere is classic, trendy, and inviting. The food is fresh and packed full of flavor. The carpaccio, mmmm the carpaccio! The baked feta...a must!... More

I loved everything about this restaurant - the beautiful restaurant itself, our table in the front windows, the attentive service, but most especially the scrumptious food. I had red snapper with polenta and mushrooms, and I had no idea snapper could taste so good! Then the fresh peach cobbler was excellent with local peaches and not too much sugar. And... More

The rustic simplicity of Italian inspired fresh Stitt prepared local ingredients make it worth visiting Birmingham to dine.Make it a point to dine at Highland Bar and Chez Fonfon and you will see why Frank and Pardis Stitt are a star team. Bet you you meet one or both. Hands on great food!

Bottega is the finest restaurant in Birmingham. The only other one that comes close is Highlands Bar and Grill and they are owned by the same person, Chef Frank Stitt. It doesn't matter who you are or what you order, the service is first class and the food is always the best.

Went to Bottega the other night after a couple year hiatus and it was better than ever. The atmosphere is excellent, the service is impeccable and the food outstanding. This place is Stitt's best and certainly should not be missed if you're in Birmingham.
