Have not eaten here for a while, Lunch offer of any pizza or pasta dish had changed to selected dishes only. Ordered one with chicken and onion there must have been 6 strips of chicken and about 3 bits of onion. One of the worst pizza's ever, you could buy better in a supermarket. Very poor value. Service was good... More

We eat at Bottelino's several times a year. It is worth the 35 minute drive from home as the food is good and always fresh, the portions generous and the atmosphere relaxed. In comparing our experiences to the comments from others about slowness, we cannot fault the service and the staff there certainly do not rush you to finish. Views... More

Good place for a relaxed evening overlooking the marina. Service was prompt and food arrived quickly – in fact we hadn’t finished eating the bread with olive oil/vinegar before the pizzas arrived. Ideally located if staying at the Travelodge opposite. Friendly, attentive staff.

Currently sat in the restaurant. We have enjoyed the food so far, I had a pizza and friend had pasta. Decent size for price and very tasty. We have then waited 20 minutes for them to remove our finished plates. Once plates removed we then had to wait over 10 minutes before almost shouting across the quiet room for a... More

Visited for a bite of lunch last Saturday. The location is good, with views over the marina, and the basic price at lunchtime is good. (£10 for two courses.) On arrival we were asked to wait for a few minutes before being shown to a table by the window. We walked past the long bar behind which is the kitchen.... More

Food mediocre. We ordered pate, the amount of pate and bread ratio was not proportionate, so asked for more bread which was supplied. What i didn't realize was this was added to the bill! Although the cost is minimal the impact was massive. Not worth another visit

About a year ago, we would go to Bottelino's about once a month. The food and staff had always been excellent. So, as we had not been in a long time, this evening for my partner's birthday he decided that this was where he wanted to go. We were a party of three - two adults and an eleven year... More

We had a family meal here after a very special occasion. It was a Sunday lunch time however the meal we had was definitely NOT special. Having asked to be seated in a particular part of the restaurant with the tables set as a T we were put on long tables so it was impossible for all of us to... More

Very good food and friendly service. We always make use of their early evening offer as bringing 3 young girls with 2 adults can get expensive! I very much like that they don't make you feel 'lesser' by making use of thief special offers, unlike other places I've been. My favourite in Portishead and I live here.
