I am so disappointed in this place. I read the reviews and my fiancé was raving about it. I ordered the Ravioli Di Zucca Gialla and the vegetarian bread to go. The ravioli was covered in large chunks of garlic (which it does not say on the menu) and overwhelming. It was also extremely salty. I actually rinsed the sauce... More

Entering South Congress after a long drive we decided to test Botticelli's and we wasn't disappointed. Fantastic Mozzarella Caprese for starters, nice al dente vegetarian spaghetti and a fantastic lasagna combined with great wine. The service was a bit hasty - but the food compensated the stressed service.

We've been several times in the last year and never disappointed. Food and service is always spot on. This is not a typical "American" Italian flare, the chef really offers nice flavors and variety of type of dishes. The restaurant is small and crowded and not kid friendly, recommend you make reservation! Pricing is more on the high end of... More

Terrific food, one of us had a truffle salad with extra shrimp on the side, the other had ravioli with duck in a pepper fig sauce. Both dishes delicious, wine recommendation to go with it spot on. Great server, was there when she needed to be, left us alone the rest of the time. No room for dessert, too full!... More

Cozy, and very delicious Italian restaurant! Very few tables inside so we were not able to have a booth.

We ate at Botticelli tonight, we just stumbled upon it while walking through Soco, so didn't have any expectations. When we received the menu's, it took some time for both my husband and i to decide what to have, because everything sounded so good. We settled on the mixed salad and a plate of hand made pasta each - i... More

We eat a lot of Italian and I have to say that this is far from being a great Italian restaurant. Our food was tasty enough but way too heavy-handed with the sauces, which overwhelmed the food. Can't complain about the size of the serves which were huge, but a much lighter hand is needed in the kitchen. You are... More

Pros: Creative layout considering limited indoor space. Charming outdoor space. Friendly staff. Good service. Cons: Lasagna was so burned I couldn't cut through top noodle. Staff wanted to make it right & second portion was better since it was obviously cut from center of pan; Overall: Just didn't feel the quality was worth the prices they charge. Will remain loyal...

We went here for dinner after seeing their high ranking on TA. There was quite a line, and we had to wait for almost an hour. We walked up Congress for about 20 minutes, then decided to go in and have a drink at the bar. The place is small, and the tables are crowded together. When we finally got... More

I had the best filet that I have had in a very long time at this restaurant. My husband had the fungi ravioli and stated that it was delicious. Service was excellent . My husband also had a caesar salad that had a most artistic presentation and was wonderful

Botticelli’s South Congress is a fun and tasty Italian restaurant located in the heart of the exciting "SOCO" district. Botticelli's serves fresh and delicious Italian food combining old family recipes with new, inventive ones. Andrew and Matt Botticelli are the proud owners and are made even more proud by the food that Botticelli's delivers through its amazing staff. There are both an intimate dining room up front and a large beautiful beer garden out back, where there is live music Thursday through Saturday night. Full menu is available inside or out and at either bar. Look forward to seeing you soon.
