Best Italian in Lompoc

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.

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

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,...
