I am a spaghetti freak and I enjoyed their linguini with meatballs. I would grade it as good, though not among the very best I've had. The service was friendly and they went out of their way to let me sit outside on a pleasant evening. It's a small place, I imagine there are nights you have to wait to... More

I had the sea bass special, which was very tender and tasty. The accompaniments were also very good. The creme brulee' was small for the price, but still tasty. My wife's dinner was not to her liking. she said the veal dish was not of high quality expected here. Atmosphere was very nice and quiet, though I must say we... More

Our family is traveling and following the great reviews from Trip Advisor users we stopped in on our first night in Rapid City. Location in the beautiful downtown is great and service was very friendly. The food was tasty enough but the issue is how long our entrees took to arrive and that two of our four meals were pretty...

Very good but we felt under dressed but were treated very well by staff. White tablecloths and very nice decor. Note that the nice lunch menu discussed in other reviews is NOT available on weekends which was very disappointing. We enjoyed pizza and salad. Both were very good. Great location in heart of lovely downtown.

After a six hour drive we wandered in to Botticelli and were immediately seated. The menu has a great selection, the prices are reasonable ($12 to $20 for a meal with delicious bread and dipping sauce), the food delicious, and the service fast and professional. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Also, the location in historic downtown Rapid City... More

I never go to Rapid City without eating at Botticelli's! The food is out of this world...the service can't be beat...and the prices are reasonable for the scrumptious food you get. However, I do recommend making reservations since the restaurant is quite small. The downtown location is also a fun place to spend the day.

Visiting Mount Rushmore and staying in Rapid City we were eating in another restaurant on the first night of two and got chatting to a local couple. We asked where they would suggest going for our next meal and they recommended Botticelli. It is right in the centre of town and we stopped by to check the menu and opening... More

Based on a recommendation, we chose Botticelli's for a lunch while visiting for the day. The waitress, Christy was charming and extremely helpful. We chose the 1/2 sandwich, soup, and salad for under 8 dollars!! The soup was a tomato basil- creamy richness topped with freshly grated cheese. Paninis were toasted to perfection with a buttery taste. Sandwiches were savory... More

My husband and I shared a lovely meal at this little Italian restaurant. It was right across from the square where they were doing a Shakespeare in the Park. We were able to watch the play through the window while having dinner. Terrific.

Ate here twice during our 3 days in Rapid City, which speaks for itself. Both times the food was tasty, service was very good, and prices reasonable. It is very popular so may be best to book in advance, especially as opening times are limited and there seems to be an influx of people at 5 o clock when they... More
