How about a cool, elegant blonde wood featuring restaurant that offers reasonable options for lunch that are original and exciting? That's what we found as we were passing through Birmingham just looking for a quick bite. The sandwich I had was about the best I have ever had -- and that's covering a lot of decades. My wife said hers... More

The cafe is right next door to the main restaurant and serves the best Mac and Cheese you have ever had, seriously! It's small, but quaint and a great place for an afternoon lunch with friends or a simple date night.

I was with a group of 15+ and every meal was a knockout. The bread pudding is absolutely to die for. The service is terrific. You simply can't go wrong with Bottega.

I've been at least four times for dinner (the last few times not by my choosing). While I have had excellent service at every visit, I've never been happy with the food. It's certainly not worth the money in my opinion. This is not coming from a picky eater, just someone who would prefer to eat elsewhere. Go to J.... More

Could go back time after time and it would never get old. Love every part of the restaurant. We went to the cafe said, which is more laid back, but the food was still top notch. hanger steak was amazing!

I only get to go here on special occasions, due to the price tag, but as they say "you get what you pay for". You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a cozy atmosphere with great service and excellent cuisine. And yes, they have ample quantities of what is on the menu. I highly recommend this place... More

Frank Stitt has made his name in Birmingham with his 3 wonderful restaurants. Bottega has a nice Tuscan Italian menu, lovely atmosphere, great food, and a nice variety of wines & cocktails. Whether you're on the Cafe or Restaurant side, you're sure to have a delightful experience. The service can be slow- as it is one of BHM's hot spots,... More
