I've been to Bottega before, and the experience has always been good. But today was just outstanding. Do yourself a favour, and order the steak tartare. This dish is hard to find, and when you do, it's usually hopelessly wrong. But Bottega's is perfect. It arrives on a huge wooden platter, the perfectly hand-chopped steak in a patty in the... More

A lovely little restaurant in Parkhurst which consistently serves good food. The owner-manager Sav runs a tight ship and takes great care of his customers. They have the best ribs in Joburg in my opinion and we frequently get them as take-out. The fillet porcini is excellent, as is the balsamic rump. They serve a great vegetarian starter and pasta...

Hidden in Parkhurst North this upmarket Bistro has delish Italian style food. There is an extensive menu and blackboard specials which had all the proteins prepared in classic style. After quite large starter salads my guest really enjoyed the Crab & Roquette pasta whilst I had Veal Saltimbocca alla romana which had some great hidden flavors – there is a... More

Bottega is still after so many years one of my favorite Parkhurst venues, they make great food every time, the service is good and selection of wine is just as good. Great place for any occasion, birthdays, girls nite out, romantic dinners and more. They still make some of the best lamb cutlets in town. It gets busy so book... More

After considering Bottega as great little gem from previous visits, I was taken aback by the repulsive treatment we received on our visit in the week of 5 May. Firstly, we booked a table but on arrival, it seems it had escaped someone to actually reserve a table - so we were put in a corner along with the oysters.... More

I have come here for both brunch and dinner and had good experiences. The food has been good, although you sometimes feel a little forgotten in the deck area outside, especially when food can sometimes be a little slow. When service was poor (spilt soup on a customer jacket) they did make an effort to rectify the problem.

After an amazing night out at Bistro Vine we felt inclined to make the trek back to Parkhurst to try their neighbour , Bottega. While the prices are the same , the service is cool , as if one is being tolerated , despite buying 3 courses and a bottle of MCC .. It was like being in Cape Town... More

This restaurant took over the space left over by the excellent and sadly missing Attic. It doesn't come close to the attic for food or atmosphere, but it was still a decent restaurant. Our wine was a good vintage and went nicely with our meal. My Kudu in a red wine reduction sauce was pretty tasty, a little bit blunt,... More
