This is the BEST place to get deliciously made lunches and dinners. I always get the Giuseppi sandwich and it is honestly one of my all time favorite sandwiches to get! They also have really great fresh salads, gorgonzola cheesecake! is to die for, the list goes on and on. I highly recommend going in to La Bottega to get... More

Very busy at the lunch hour, but service was still great and the food was excellent. Deli service also available. Nice interior as well.

I have been here several times for lunch. One time the whole sandwich was so huge I couldn't finish, but the next time, I ordered a different sandwich and was surprised how small it was...guess I will go back to the portabella choice (the first one). Others with me raved about the pasta and the polenta of the day.

These guys are great. The food is always consistent and amazing. The service is quick. Food can cost a little more but it's fresh and delicious. The specials are a bargain! They make their own chips and pickles. So good!

Went for lunch with a friend who says there is usually a wait for a seat at this small restaurant which is one of her favorites. After eating a delicious meal I can see why! I had mushroom ravioli with balsamic sauce - outstanding! My friend had a build your own sandwich and was equally pleased with her choice. We... More

We found this quaint restaurant in downtown Vancouver and experienced excellent Italian food. Everything about this place was perfect, with no misses throughout our entire meal. It reminds me of a quaint restaurant in downtown Carmel, CA. Ambiance is warm and cozy, our service was friendly, attentive and never skipped a beat. Our first course was the Bruschetta which was...

The pasta dishes are overpriced for what you get, though tasty, but not spectacular. And the truffle I asked for at the end of the meal, turned out to the $2.17 and was so tiny it was less than a whole bite! And not even that great... Service was good, though.

We went here with a bride and groom-to-be to celebrate the start of their wedding weekend. Its a fun special occasion place. The food was good, and the wine selection extensive. A bit pricey, but for a special night out it was not too extreme. I don't think they normally take reservations, but they were willing to work with us... More
