Great food, atmosphere and wine! You can feel confident in taking your out of town guests here. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is beautiful! The only thing we dont like is that they have a huge italian wine selection, but will not offer a sample up front so you can determine if you... read more

Botticelli's is a "don't miss it" eatery. I've not once had a bad meal or experience there. Anything and everything is yum. Great ambience, too.

While some might consider this restaurant to be a touch expensive, it's really not when you look at what you're getting. The food is truly Italian and well crafted by great chefs. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. The atmosphere is very romantic and quiet.

Stumbled upon this little gem while visiting my USAF son for the holiday. Wow. Dark, "old world" feel to the space, yet open enough to avoid claustrophobia. This is obviously a re-purposed space, but nicely done. Jorge was attentive and knowledgable, without being a nuisance. Tomato bisque with artichoke as an opener warmed the soul. For entrees, the saltimbocca was... More

We had dinner last night. All the meals were prepared in an amazing way. The food was exceptional. My salmon was the best I have ever had. The service was also impeccable. The environment in this place is cozy but with plenty of room for each person. I really appreciate the wide range of wine selections available by the glass.

I took my grandson for "Spaghetti Lunch" it was quite a nice deal. Very friendly staff who acknowledge my grandson politely with Your welcomes as he said thank you. He was treated as a handsome young man(being 3 yrs old) which was for me refreshing! I thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

My husband and I came in on Wednesday night. NOT knowing that restaurant was a half hour before closing...the wait staff also made a comment about how the kitchen was going to close soon, which I found rude (me being a server myself). The beer that we ordered was bottled and Luke warm... the side Ceasar salad that we shared... More
