My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at Bottega this week. We both started with soufflé, moved on to pasta, and finished with a top ten best slice of chocolate cake. Dinner was delicious and filling...all in all, great night out.

We ate on the cafe side. They make their own olive oil; tasted amazing. I had the trout special and it was delicious. Our waitress was very friendly. Great night with friends and food!

I surprised my wife by taking her to Bottega for dinner. We had a moderate sized party, and due to plans to attend a play at the nearby Virginia Samford Theater, ate an early dinner. We began with expertly created libations, including the “Orange Thing”(...More
