Celebrated anniversary at Bottega, again. Our favorite dining location in Birmingham; or anywhere else for that matter.. Great room, great service; GREAT food. Especially when fresh vegetables and fruit in season; like grilled peaches w/ prosciutto, blueberry tiramisu.

One side of Bottega requires reservations; the other side does not--some call it the "cheap" side, but it's really not. The reservations side has a beautiful garden for dining, as well done as anything I have ever seen in France. It's walled with well done appointments. The wait staff is prompt and attentive. Pardis Stitt is frequently there and seeks... More

Casual dining, or fine dining...this restaurant offers both. We took our 9yr old to dinner on the fine dining side but she wanted pizza from the casual dining side. They accommodated her request and we all enjoyed our dinner! Food is amazing and atmosphere is perfect.

A wonderful dinner for an anniversary! Have been several times, and it's always excellent! We have traveled a great deal, and been fortunate to dine in many fine restaurants in a number of countries. It's so wonderful to find something this great at home.

Have had a few quick lunches here and there throughout the years and I can't complain about anything. Service is impeccable, the menu is always varied and changing, and the atmosphere is warmly welcoming.

This lovely restaurant is nestled in the Five Points area of Birmingham. Valet parking makes it easily accessible. The menu is an amazing concoction of Frank Stitt's genius, paired with amazing, affordable wines. Though not cheap, they deliver great value. Italian dishes are indeed available, but other options also exist. The service is impeccable. Simply one of the best dining... More

If you plan to go on the weekend, get ready for the wait. They do not accept reservations. Relax. There is a great bar and lots of people to see. This is a popular place among locals and tourists. There are two restaurants here, one is fine dining and one is upscale bistro. A very fun location in the Highlands... More

Has restaurant side for night dining and cafe for lunch dining. Frank Stitt is chef and uses locally available produce so menu varies with season. Good bar. Can also eat outside for lunch or dinner. Excellent experience.

My sister and I were on business in Birmingham and as we were deplaning we learned that Birmingham is a gourmet capital of America! Who knew?!? And to top that off, the #1 recommended restaurant by everyone we met was Bottega. We were able to get a late reservation for a table at the Bottega Cafe, which is the less... More
