Specialty pizza, unique sandwiches and daily food special mark this restaurant that is owned by the same owner as Highland Bar & Grill. Has a nice outside patio to sit in weather permitting and is nice place to gather with friends for a drink.

My family and I dined at Bottega to celebrate my daughter in law’s birthday. It was, without a doubt, the best meal I have ever eaten. Our waiter was very patient (and knowledgeable), answering our many questions about wine, rye whiskey, appetizers, and entrees. My...More
