Best lunch in Teddington!

La Bottega is much more than a deli selling great Italian food products. It's a friendly neighbourhood eatery with a great atmosphere where you always feel at home. The sandwich, cake and drink lunch deal is not to be missed!

I went here on a Saturday afternoon for lunch with my other half. I was surprised that they were still doing their offer of a sandwich, drink and cake for £5.50. The place was busy, so we had to share a table with other people, which wasn't a problem for us. The place itself transported me back to Italy. I... More

A friend that I hadn't seen for ages recommended that we met in this little cafe. It is wonderful, small, but the staff make you feel really welcome and the home made cakes are superb. We didn't stay for lunch but I could see some of the food being delivered and it looked and smelt tremendous. I will be going... More

My husband and his sister discovered this cafe by chance and we have been back several times since. We are particuaulry excited about the quality of the food and that for £5.50 you can have a very well made, strong coffee, freshly prepared sandwich with a wide choice of contents and a generous portion of homemade cake, again with a...

once you get to know them they are just lovely. They dont have to be perfect - their imperfectness makes them appealing. A nice change to the standard food chain ! One thing is always good and that is the cake and the coffee!

Charmingly compact, owners kind and obliging. Had full sandwich on absolutely some of the best bread in UK...drink, and pudding. Five pounds. Egad. Sandwich was delicious too! Akin to having lunch at a friends. Pret....if this went viral...? Remember...very small sit down space. Leave buggy outside.

La Bottega has only been here a couple of years but it seems like forever! It has become a home from home for many Teddington Locals including myself. It's often bustling and full to to the brim with regulars who appreciate good coffee and are working their way through the selection of amazing home-cooked cakes and treats (Roberto is a... More

Have to agree with disgruntled review on service. Like the owners, it's very temperamental. My main concern is the standard of hygiene - or lack of it. Handling money, then food, without washing hands or wearing gloves...too retro for my tastes, and I was brought up in Italy! When the mood's right, the food and coffee can hit the spot... More
