Very good Italian food

We were having a reunion of cousins in the Rapid City area and decided to have our first evening meal at Botticelli's. The wait was minimal and the service was good. My only problem was that the salad I had ordered got lost in the shuffle as the waitress didn't remember my having ordered it...but... read more

The restaurant is popular and we benefitted from a half price wine offer, which was great. However the food disappointed. The cheeseboard selection was very bland apart from the blue cheese, but on a positive note, bread was served with oil and vinegar. Meatballs and pasta were ok, but the cannelloni was incredibly bland, and if there was bechamele sauce,... More

Great food and great service. Nice place overall. Our server did a great job. The restaurant only serves beer and wine. Otherwise, No complaints!

Botticelli's...sigh I wanted to live this place great location fun view and it smelled amazing. Let's start off on a high note the atmosphere or ambience of this place is perfect for a couples night out or a first date. The staff is friendly and helpful as well But the food portion and quality is lacking,this combined with a pathetically... More

None of our food came out right and the server didn't seem to make it a priority to make the situation right. On top of waiting for our food to come out the way we ordered it we noticed a lot of staff drama in the back and just a huge lack of professionalism. Our food came out sloppy at... More

Finding this good of an Italian restaurant in South Dakota almost boggles the mind. Great décor, great food and the wait person was fantastic. When trying to decide between two wines he offered samples of both. Very knowledgeable of the wines as well as the food. One entre is enough for two people unless one is REALLY hungry. Go to...

My wife and I rarely get to have a one on one "Date Night" but when we do we usually choose to go to Botticelli's. We have eaten there on many occasions and have never been disappointed by the food or the service. Their prices are a bit more than some other chain Italian eateries but they are well worth... More

Looking for a nice restaurant in downtown Rapid City. Walked up & down Main Street and found this place. Aurelian was a great server. Very friendly and efficient. The pasta dishes were the correct amount. Not too large but not too small either.

Went here late on Thursday evening. Service was absolutely great! Caprese salad was very good; a little light on the fresh mozzarella but tasted good. The margherita pizza was not very good....crush was thick and doughy, very little sauce, almost no basil or tomatoes but loaded with cheese....too much cheese.
