Completely fresh & customized by your own individual preferences. Start with your fav bread - mine is focaccia , then add meat ,condiments & garnishes. Take out only but beats all other sandwich shops in taste & price. Get lucky with the limited outdoor table seating.that needs expanding . The other negative are the tight narrow aisles that are difficult... More

OMG. This is the best place for a great sandwich. Way better than a fast food sub and about the same price. Service and atmosphere is perfect.

Well I had a last minute request from my boss to get some catering for lunch. It was 11:30am when I got the request, I phoned La Bottega and explained my situation. Presto! I picked it up by noon and it was ready with all the fixings and more. It looked fantastic, it was easy to lay out for everyone... More

This place will inspire you to bring out your chargecard. The food presentation is wonderful and the staff helpful. There are many options for healthy take out food. I loved the cheese offerrings. Walk in and just try not to buy, I dont think its possible.

This is not your everyday grocery store. It's filled with lots of interesting items. Specialty cheeses, Italian coffees, imported meat and more types of olive oil than I can count. You never know what's down the next isle. I wish I lived closer, I'd be a regular.

Although there was a bit of a wait to get in, it was well worth it. My fellow and I shared some reasonably priced wine, the arugula salad and cheese and charcuterie plates for a late lunch in the weekend. Portions were plentiful and the flavours sublime! Our server was laid back and fun, but attentive. Will definitely be back!

It does not look very special but it actually is. I read some online reviews before coming in and I was kind of sceptical wondering what can be so good about a sandwich. But this is not a sandwich - it's HEAVEN in your mouth! I just tried vegetarian one with different kind of cheese and it was awesome, the... More

Met a friend here for lunch while on my visit to Ottawa and was very impressed. We walked to the back of the store through an amazing selection of groceries (pastas, oils, dressings, chocolates and much, much more) through to the sandwich counter. Ordering a sandwich here couldn't be much easier. Firstly, they're all the same price: $6.20. You firstly... More

Amazing Italian grocer and small cafe with a sandwich counter as well. My favourite place to shop in Ottawa for Italian. Their sandwiches are amazing!

We popped into this great spot to get a sandwich to go....my daughter had been here before. They will make an amazing sandwich for you...you pick your bread, your two meat, your toppings etc...they package it up and off you go! We were able to share a sandwich and it was lots of food for the two of us. The... More
