Same old food nothing new and exciting time to do something a little more modern. Probably the reason the place is filled with old rich men.

The service is always the best! Our writer was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. And the food is delicious. I've never had a bad meal. Save room for dessert and definitely enjoy an "Orange Thing"- their signature cocktail!

Any of the wood fired pizzas and excellent pastas are worth going to Bottega. There is also an excellent wine list. Decor is contemporary. Lovely.

My husband and I visited Bottega with a group of friends and were seated in a private alcove. Even with a party of ten, the service was attentive, the food came out timely and hot. The wine list is extensive.

You can eat in the fine dining side or the casual side café. Both are great in their own ways. The casual side is a little louder, lower prices but great food and the fine dining is what you'd expect. Great food, great atmosphere on either side and overall great look at Birmingham dining. A must stop if you find... More

Bottega never disappoints. The menu selections are well thought out and presented beautifully. It's always difficult to make a decision about what to have. One of my favorites!

If you are looking for something different, try Botega. You can depend on Botega to have something a little different on the menu and you can depend on the food being good.
