Great food and service

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... read more

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

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.

Whenever we are staying in Lompoc we visit this restaurant. The owner is so sweet and cares about her customers. The Italian food is really good too.

The entree included a pasta with Alfredo sauce and whole mushrooms. It was delicious! Their home made desserts were incredible. Canolis and Tiramisu...the best ever!

Very good Italian restaurant. The lady who has owned it with her husband for something like 34 years was very nice. She even sat down and talked with us while we were dining. Their house red was a Sangiovese from Scott Cellars we later found out after visiting Scott Cellars the next day. Great place to eat after visiting the... More

We love our lunch. We avoided La Botte as it looks so run down. But a friend told us to go as it is delicious. They were right. Great service, fabulous food. I had the lunch special of Butternut Squash ravioli and husband had the meatball sandwich. We were both exquisitely happy. My ravioli was divine and husbands sandwich was... More

Granted the place is run down and the salads are not great, their Italian is amazing. All of the pasta dishes are so good, my favorite being the chicken picatta. It's a great family owned restaurant that makes you feel like family.
