Very Nice Italian Dining

We just happened on this restaurant while walking around downtown. It has a very nice menu. Service was good. Food was great. We were very pleased. They do have veal from time to time. Not during our vvisit however. That was the only disappointment.

This is a restaurant that we have visited in the past and if our good fortune continues, we hope to do so once again. Walk in to Botticelli Ristorante and the instant aromas of superbly prepared Italian foods tells you that you are going to be in good hands, that you are in for a most satisfying food experience.

We both had fettuccine with marinara (marinara dil norte) and it was excellent. It was a little spicy (a good thing) and not too sweet, like many places seem to make it. We were served bread with olive oil and basalmic vinegar, which was also very good. The music choices were a little strange, but otherwise, the atmosphere was very... More

Rapid City does not offer a lot of options in elegant dining that is local, but Botticelli's is a good option to explore. The food is good along with a nice wine list and the atmosphere is nice. The wait staff is friendly and the location downtown is very nice. A few detractors include: meal is not fast (of course... More

After living in New York for a couple of years I'm very picky when it comes to Italian food. Botticelli does not disappoint. I have never had a bad meal at this place and the staff has always been on point.

Botticelli looks small and shy from outside, but inside has a nice atmosphere and food. The lasagna did not impressed me at my first visit, but the shrimp carbonara was perfect at my second visit. Botticelli's one of the best restaurants of Rapid City. It is cheap and has amazing food!

We spent Easter weekend in South Dakota and decided to try a family dinner at Botticelli's on April 4, 2015. Absolutely loved the food and our waiter was a gem. My grandson and his food picky dad loved the pizza. The girls spoke about sharing their meals when they arrived and the waiter was thoughtful enough to bring their entrees... More

My husband and I were looking for a quiet dinner near the end of our vacation and found the perfect spot at Botticelli. The service was friendly and timely and the atmosphere was excellent. We both enjoyed pasta for dinner with a delicious dessert. We will be back!

Was startled how fast we received our food! Maybe 5 minutes had elapsed. The food choices were excellent and the prices even better! Portion sizes were generous, fresh, and very tasty. Won't be back to any of the National chain Italian, I think I found a new favorite for the near future.

Had a great visit at this restaurant. The service and the chipinno were both outstanding. Even if this this wasn't the only itialian resturant in town it would still be the best.
