My wife and I went here the other night. The food was bland and is certainly not Italian at all. We will not be going again . Disappointing

We went back for dinner again after 5 years. Service was good, food was just average. Not as good as I remember from our last visit. Try it the food is ok.

There are so many wonderful dishes at this restaurant. My favorites are the lasagna, butternut squash soup, tomato bisque soup and delectable tira misu. I have never been disappointed and I have tried many different items on the menu. Plus, you get an added bonus when the proprietor, Mama, comes by and sings. It only adds to a wonderful experience.

We were greeted by staff who were sincerely charming and appeared to love their jobs, so HR at this restaurant is doing its job well. That said, the food was barely edible. I had the eggplant parmesan. The sauce tasted like it came out of a six month old Ragu bottle (metallic and fermented), and the eggplant itself wasn't prepared... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel manager and the food was good, but the service was terrible. We had to wait and wait to be served. We asked for a different salad to be substituted on our meal and we would pay extra and they said no. The waitress, who I think was the owners daughter, talked and talked... More

We went here because of good reviews on TA and Yelp. La Botte boasts a very pleasant and intimate charme. This sets it apart from all of the fast food shacks you will find in this area. Italian songs are playing in the background and the whole place has quite a European feel to it (except for the standard American... More

Excellent quality food, good wine and staff was accommodating. I am a fairly big eater, especially after walking around Solvang and only snacking so my only complaint is that I would have enjoyed bigger portions.

La Botte is a family owned restaurant. All of their dishes are freshly made and delicious. Their minestrone soup is made daily and is very good. They have homemade pizza and many entrees that are all prepared perfectly. They have a good selection of Italian wines. We are locals and frequently eat here. Don't miss it if you are in... More

I will start by saying that this place doesn't look like much from the outside, however once you go in and get greeted you will be amazed! The staff was so friendly to us and each other that I thought they were family! The place was clean and quaint, but nice! The food was outstanding and cooked to perfection! I... More

My husband is from Lompoc and we visit frequently when we are in CA and ALWAYS go to La Botte for our Italian treat. The food is superb and their spaghetti with clam sauce is amazing. They have an excellent wine list, good service and great bread :) I am Italian and I know good Italian food and this place... More
