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.

My husband and I ate here and had a pleasant experience. Tuesday night is half priced bottles of wine, so that was an added plus. The tomato soup appy was delicious and we both had the veal marsala special which was excellent. The cheese plate for dessert was a perfect compliment to the little bit of wine we had left.... More

Wife and I had heard that downtown Rapid City had lots of good restaurants. So we had dinner at Botticelli one of the nights we were there on our recent trip and frankly, it was just "OK". The service was moderately slow: our waiter brought water and "gave us a few" to look over the menu. That took about 10... More

The smell when entering is awesome and the food as well. Our server was very knowledgeable of all menu items and was fun to talk with. We were here on the Tuesday night when most of the other surrounding restaurants were almost empty but Botticelli had a short wait to be seated. The locals must know how good the place... More

To have linens, quiet atmosphere and great food for less than $8 is a great deal. Sop, sandwich and salad. One of the best deals in Rapid City. Downtown on Main makes it an easy place to find.

Botticelli's is one of my favorite downtown eating establishments, and the daily specials are always interesting and unique. The wine list is impressive and offers an array of labels and types to please almost any palate. The tomato/artichoke soap and a salad are my favorites, and I tend to order them whenever I am there for lunch. The past two... More

This was an experience, Even though the cost was $$ to $$$ the main thing they had was half servings. Being a Senior this helped a lot. The food and service was great and the cannoli order we got for snack later was great. Must go to place
