We had eaten here and love it before on another road trip. I had to write this review due to the WONDERFUL KIND SENSITIVE FAMILY that works together there. I had Eggplant Parm and my husband had spaghetti like he had the last time. Both were excellent as was the service. I had a difficult day and so was a... More

First review not first visit. The food here is always good and the service is very family friently as well. Our family eats here often so we did get some special attention. My Chicken Picata was good and the side of Fettuchini Alfredo was a meal in itself. The cannaloni was fresh and good. The owner's Mom makes a killer... More

This was definitely not the place I wanted dinner but it was the only name I remembered. Service was slow and the result was a pizza that was so so. The waitress took forever to get the order right uh we ordered a Nick's Special but change the Pepperoni to Meatballs. Really should that take 5 tries? I was saddened... More

I suppose the reason La Botte is usually crowded on the weekends is because of the lack of decent dining options in Lompoc. I would rate their Italian Food good but not great. Owner's seem to be very friendly to obviously "their regulars" and seem to ignore everyone else.

Not much selection for Italian in Lompoc, yet the food at La Botte rates well against similarly priced Italian restaurants in other areas, even New York City. All pasta dishes are fine but the ravioli selections are my favorites, along with the veal. The atmosphere and the service can both be excellent, but YOU NEVER KNOW. On a couple of... More

Had a group lunch for a friends birthday. Service was good and staff friendly. We were there at lunch time and the birthday person really wanted a dinner meal. No problem: They let us all order either from the lunch menu or items from the dinner birthday. All the meals were very good. The slice of cake with ice cream... More

The food was great. La Botte used to be our favorite place but now our experience has been horrible. Once said, for the second time the service was the worst ever. The waitress ignored our requests and we had to ask for silverware several times. When we complain to the owner we were ignored. And we made reservations! We have... More

The food is delicious....the service good...and they treat you like family. We try different things each time we visit. We have been there a number of times and have enjoyed everything we have ordered.

Always very good. Mama adds the Italian touch for sure! Good sized portions. Excellent sauce, pasta, pizza, desserts. If you are looking for good, homemade Italian food, La Botte is the place in Lompoc.

Great food from the hot bread, fresh homemade minestrone soup, calamari, right up to the calzones and spumoni.
