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.

We went here to celebrate my fiance's 50th birthday. Our family came from out of town and we chose this restaurant for dinner because we had heard good things about it from friends. While the atmosphere was nice and had a great view of Main Street Square's Christmas decorations, the over all experience was so-so. The waiter was clueless about... More

I love the wine selection and fried duck when they have it. The food has just the right amount of spice. It is very rustic but yet romantic. I love this place to eat in town.

My DH and I had dinner before a concert last evening and were anticipating a nice cozy dinner. The evening started off badly as the reservation that I had made for 5:30 appeared on their list as 7:30. So...they put us at a table in the middle of the back room (at least they had one). There were large parties... More

We were hungry for Italian so chose Botticelli's since we were downtown. We split an order of chicken alfredo. It was alright, nothing overly good or overly bad. We had a window seat so we could people watch. Our waiter was very friendly and prompt. For a Saturday evening it didn't seem very busy.

My wife and I stopped here while visiting the Rapid City area,,,we got lucky. For starters we had Salmon Bruschetti and it was very good. We followed with the Chicken Saltimboca, which was equally satisfying. If we are in the area again, we would stop here again.
