Penne pasta

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... read 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. Always... More

Visiting from out of town,first time in Lompoc. Chose La Botte based on ratings. The minute we received our hot bread right out of the oven, we knew it was going to be good. We were celebrating an early Thanksgiving dinner with our two daughters and we wanted something special and good. We got both! We had Pizza, pasta and... More

We had the Lasagne and with the very first bite, our taste buds were begging for more. It truly was exceptional!

I had the ravioli and they were very good. The restaurant was quaint and quiet. I would eat at this restaurant again if I am in Lompoc.

Five of us had an anniversary lunch and were impressed with the food and service. Lunch menu is smaller than the dinner selections but still lot's of good choices. The eggplant sandwich, Italian sausage sandwich and the tuna melt were all ordered and enjoyed. They had several Italian dishes on the lunch menu and the lasagna was very good. The... More
