Great family feel

Good old-country italian food. Nothing fancy or trendy. Just yummy. Hostess was eager and cheerful. Service was fine.

True Italian owners, lots of local and organic ingredients. Assuming Italian food is good but opted for the steak. Had my share of $60 steakhouse ribeyes and this one was just as good or better for $32. I'll be back.

Went to LA Botte purely by chance. How lucky we were. Authentic homely Italian with the owner, Mama, on hand to ensure everything was going well. Excellent fresh pasta. Good choice of local and international wines. Good atmosphere.

Based on tripadvisor I made a reservation for a Saturday night. Somewhat busy, but not overly so. The experience was filled with long periods of time when no one paid us any attention. Our waitperson wasn't able to fulfill our basic needs in a timely manner. They appeared busy doing things in other parts of the place. I got the... More

If you want fire in your life, order the Penne all' Arrabbiata. It has a spicy garlic tomato sauce and fresh basil. Ask for it hot or mild with fresh rolls or french baguette. The Agate family and their excellent staff of waitresses/waiter are excellent. All very knowledgeable of the delicious meals they serve. The only problem I see every... More

Very gracious host and hostess. Although we had a large group, and they had lost our reservations, they graciously set up a lovely table and accommodated us on Valentine's weekend. Fried calamari, steamed clams and sautéed mushrooms for appetizers (all excellent). We had veal marsala and chicken piccata that was superb. This restaurant has large portions. So for $5 extra,...

Being one of the only "fine dining" establishments in lompoc, we go here to splurge when we want a good Italian meal with a bottle of wine. The last time we went, I ordered the special. It was a sweet pumpkin ravioli with sage. Delicious! They've started bottling their own wines, so we got a bottle of their Pinot and... More

We from NY arrived somewhat late for a busy valentines Saturday night Not only were we seated promptly in a packed restaurant but we got personal service from the daughter of the founder. Gave us a tasting of a number of wines before we chose the house Sangiovese. She additionally not only offered to go to an outside store to... More

Had a long day and so we went out for dinner. We were told of this little place and thought we would give it a shot. I'm very particular about my Italian food and hard to please. I found this good homestyle cooking. Too many places overlook pasta they didn't that was a plus. Many places can't seem to prepare... More

Stopped in for dinner on the Friday after Christmas. The restaurant was packed. We were fortunately able to be seated quickly. Started with some minestrone soup, very good. Shared their "Nick's Pizza." Their pizza dough was quite tasty. Very fresh ingredients. Enjoyed the sausage on it. My husband had the eggplant Parmesan, also quite good. Service was very good.
