I had dinner on a business trip at both The Highlands Bar & Grill in Birmingham, and here at Bottega—both of which are owned by the famous chef Frank Stitt. They were equally great. Preparations are thoughtful and creative. Two of the things I loved most were the Parmesan Soufflé with Mushrooms and the Shakshuka appetizer. Service was attentive and... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Birmingham. Restaurant week is always great here. Best food at the best price. They encourage you to order off the selected menu even though the prices are lower. Excellent!

We ate at the casual (no reservations) side of this restaurant and had a great experience. Sat outside. Experienced great service. Salad course was a unique "Bottega bowl". Very tasty. My wife enjoyed the summer pie pizza while I had the spaghetti neri, which was tastier than many pastas I've had in Italy. Selection of drinks including wine by the... More

This is upscale Italian cuisine. Don't expect Olive Garden. The beef carpaccio appetizer is simply divine.

Bottega is one of the best restaurants in Birmingham. Service is tops along with an great menu that always features fresh and local seasonal items. It's a bit noisy but the energy is great. The Cafe side is a great lunch or casual dinner option.

last time i went they had a sampler with different hummus & other dips that were to die for! am still thinking about those dips & the bread that came with them! could be a good light meal if you are not super hungry-usually order the white pizza or the special!

A wonderful location for an anniversary dinner--great atmosphere, delicious food and excellent service. Good thing my husband and I are willing to sample from each other's selections for the evening from appetizers to dessert.

Our food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. I'm still thinking about the dessert days later. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

I have loved this cafe for many years but last night was disappointing. Tuesday night is Crab Cake night and while this was served very hot the only thing accompanying the meal were a few roasted potatoes. There was no salad at all. I'll wait another month and will return; hopefully things will improve. Oh - we asked for separate... More
