One of Vancouver's hidden jewels

My wife and I regularly eat here - service is excellent and ordering the half-portion of an entree makes for easy portion control.

Not what a expected. Passed by it many times and it looked like an interesting place for a dining experience. My dish was not memorable but my husband's plate full of mushroom melange stays in my mind. Just how unappetizing it looked and how much he left on the plate. We went to the oriental resteraunt down the street several... More

Our visit started with a bottle of badly "corked" wine, and went downhill from there. Our server knew nothing about the wine menu to begin with, and when we sent the bottle of bad wine back, it was returned to our table decanted for us to "try again". REALLY? When we finally received our food, it tasted fresh from the... More

La Bottega consistently serves up fresh and well-prepared food. The menu varies depending upon the season. I recently had an irresistible cream of artichoke soup and gorgeous caprese salad with local heirloom tomatoes. Fabulous!

We sat along the sidewalk, cafe style, in this quaint part of town and enjoyed wine and fancy olives! Service was wonderful. Great wine list and menu.

A trendy restaurant/wine room in Uptown. This place is about the wine but even though I do not drink alcohol, I still found the food and atmosphere enjoyable. The menu is limited however there are enough selections that should satisfy everyone in your party.

La Bottega is my favorite Italian restaurant in Vancouver. The service is always great. Order and Arnold Palmer half ice tea and lemonade and it will be shaken at your table. My favorite dish is the smoked ravioli.....absolutely amazing. For lunch the corn beef sandwich is the best I have ever had. Downside is that everything is alacarte and a... More

Love the penne al la vodka. So good paired with spinach pecan salad and a Pino Grigio. Delicious. I usually go for lunch and split with a friend. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
