Yes, Botticelli will not leave you disappointed. They recommend to patrons to turn off your cell phones, and the overall atmosphere/service is elegant and comfortable. Get a reservation for this experience, and enjoy!

Had reservations, arrived on time, and taken to a very small table in the middle of the restaurant in the main walk way, my wife asked for a different table in back of... More

Everyone we spoke to was kind and friendly- from the host to our waitress (Maryn) the exceptional service really made the experience. The food is delicious! We agreed that Botticcelli is our new favorite. The atmosphere is cozy yet elegant. Wouldn't change a thing about this place. We've lived in the area 4 years and just tried it for the... More

It was our first time in this restaurant. We only relied on the good old reviews and I would say they did not disappoint. Their Tortta de Chocolate is to die for! We are absolutely coming back in the very near future.

Botticelli's is one of the most popular local restaurants in Rapid City. The atmosphere and service are very good as are the menu and wine selections. Service is usually excellent, but the quality of the food can be somewhat spotty, depending on how busy they are, I'd say. Last time out at Bottecelli's my fettucini Alfredo was luke warm and...

We enjoyed a family meal here. The menu and flavors were very traditional Italian. The service was pleasant and fast. They were overwhelmed with a Sunday rush which took a while to get everyone settled, but they did so admirably and service was quick to get on track.

I have been wanting to visit this restaurant for quite some time now, definitely did not live up to my expectations on some aspects but blew me away on others. The atmosphere and hostess started out great, got seated fairly quickly, and the waitress was very prompt, I ordered the Linguine Carciofi Con Gamberoni, then waited an obnoxiously long time,...

Botticelli was amazing! We had great service, well prepared & presented food with excellent flavor. The cost may turn some away but this is a fine dining establishment.
