There are 3 restaurants in Parkhurst that I love, Coobs, Bistro Vine and Bottega's of course. Great service, great pasta, awesome wine list and even better selection of whiskeys. The only criticism I have is that the section on pavement isn't great in winter. Even though they have heaters the constant opening and closing of the door can be a... More

Parkhurst is blessed with some of the best restaurants in Joburg and Bottega is definitely one of the better ones. The Food is always consistently good and the service never disappoints - one of the main reasons I believe that Bottega outclasses any of its competitors in this department is that the Owner Sav is always around to ensure that...

Bottega is a 4th Ave Parkhurst institution. For a restaurant to last this long in an area this competitive is a testament to its quality. Bottega is less trendy than some other places which subsequently personifies the essence of Parkhurst more so than the string of latest establishments. It's as great for breakfast, a quick meal with a mate, a... More

Bottega has been one of our favorite restaurants when visiting Johannesburg and was one of the first reservations we made for our trip. Reservation process was easy, friendly and efficient. Upon arrival our table was exactly as promised in the location we chose. Service was super friendly and efficient but got a bit slow as the restaurant got busier. Our... More

Bottega is a cool place, well-positioned in 4th Ave, which is always worth a visit. The restaurant was full last night, great atmosphere and service. It did worry me when I ordered a caipirinha and there was hardly any lime, it was the worst one I had ever ordered. The starters were file, my wife and I shared the zucchini... More

This is a great little restaurant located in one of the nicest streets in Jhb. The food is always great and it's one of my favourite breakfast spots. The service is excellent and the staff are always helpful & friendly.

Bottega literally translates from the Italian word for ‘Little Workshop’. This little spot was first opened by passionate Saverio in 2006 and has been a staple of the Parkhurst area ever since. As such, it has been on my restaurant bucket list for over a year and with such an intimate evening setting, I have often passed it and thought... More

We consider this one of our 'locals' and visit it often. We've been there as a couple, in small groups and for large parties - the venue suits every occasion. If you like good food, good wine, good whisky and anything that goes with those three things this is your place... every meal has been excellent and we've discovered some... More

Whether you're wanting a romantic date night, or a dinner with family or friends, Bottega is always a great option. Be sure to try book because it is very popular. The menu is quite limited, but you won't be disapppointed by whatever you order. If you're a fan of ribs then ask the waiter if they have any available (they... More
