one of the better eateries in Lompoc

Have visited multiple times. Plenty of tasty Italian dishes and the service is friendly and quick. It's not overly expensive so you get good value for money. I will be going back here when I feel like Chianti.

I was at a local bicycle shop for cycling supplies and asked if there was a small local restaurant near by. They recommend La Botte. The waitress suggested the daily special which was shrimp ravioli they make at the restaurant. It was very good. The service was very good. If in the area, I highly recommend eating at La Botte

This is the worst Italian I've ever had. The decor of restaurant is dated as was the food. The meal tasted as if the chef had "given up" and was just producing food the same way he has for twenty years. Expensive and actually gave me a stomach ache! My husband wasn't even asked how he would like his steak... More

I had the cream of carrot and ginger soup and it was very good. My pasta dish was also very good. Keep in mind they do give you a lot of food. Not to worry, it was my breakfast the next day! Sharing a meal here would also be a good idea. If you like Perrone beer, it is available... More

I ate here with my boyfriend in mid-June. We ordered a glass of wine, and it was never brought to us. He ordered a spaghetti and meatball dish and I ordered a fettuccine alfredo. It would have been helpful to know that the SERVINGS ARE MASSIVE, and therefore quite expensive. The fetuccine alfredo left much to be desired. Not a... More

We had a high priced bottle of wine but the prices were great on the food. The lasagna, calamari and caprese salad were excellent. The owner and her daughter chatted with us, and Mama's accent lent more charm. She hails from Chicago and before that Italy. I forgot her city.

We eat here about once or twice a month at least. I figure eventually I will have a meal not up to snuff but not so far. The food is fresh, and the atmosphere very homey and friendly. The pizzas are wonderful, and the salad fresh and crispy. We opt for the home made Italian dressing, it's just the best.... More

This is the best Italian restaurant on the central coast. And the service is amazing...we've had 10 people at the table and "Mama" (Katarina) takes care of us as though we are her family. She has even sung to us!. They just started doing wine tasting dinners and we love the whole experience. The food is just unbelievable !!! And... More

Enjoyed my meal here. Very tasty and excellent service. Older building but well worth a visit. Our pasta was cooked to perfection and portions were very nice for price.

My wife and I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the front desk clerk at the hotel that we were staying at. The outside of the restaurant lacks appeal but the inside makes up for it. When we first got there it was still early so there weren't very many people there but it was getting crowded by... More
