Very nice and quiet place to eat. The bread is fresh and the oil/vinegar dipping is just right. The Caesar salad had just the right flavors and then came the entrée. Anytime I see an Italian restaurant I always first look to see if they have veal. From there I always hope it is good veal and tender but you... More

I came into town for just a few days, and found this gem. I sat outside and watched people come and go along the sidewalk to the town square across the street. The food was incredible, but really it was the service and warmth of the staff. The owner came to my table and ended up dining with me. You... More

This restaurant has been in town for a long time, and is the only place in the Black Hills to get proper Italian food. Recently the location has had some personel changes and it is once again on of the best places to eat in town. I was a regular 5 years ago, and I am quickly becoming one again.

While in town during the Stock Show we went to Botticelli for a later dinner. There only a few tables filled so we were seated quickly and our server was prompt. He suggested a wine that was very good. Our meals arrived in a timely manner. The Gorgonzola Salad was made with fresh greens and plenty of smooth gorgonzola cheese.... More

We started going to Botticelli for lunch some years ago based on a magazine recommendation. The lunches have been consistently unique, tasty and inexpensive (soup, sandwich and salad for about $8.00). I did not give 5 stars because the service, while good, has on occasion been perfunctory.

This was not our first visit to Botticelli's. It is consistently wonderful from the bread to dip in olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the lemony chicken pasta dish whose name eludes me. In summer tables near the front entry can be a bit warm but further into the restaurant and there are no issues. Service is great as well.... More

I have eaten at Botticelli often with family and friends for lunch and dinner. It has always been a very enjoyable dining experience with knowledgeable/friendly staff, very fine Italian food and a great wine list! Our most recent visit was New Years Eve 2016 with 7 in attendance. Even though the restaurant was very busy, we never felt neglected nor... More

I cannot lie...this restaurant has been the catalyst for many of my intimate escapades. From the moment you enter you are immediately captivated by the quiet and quaint ambiance of this Italian nook. To your left sits a vintage Tuscan bar and a wine shelf so complete it seems to be it's own mint. The Gaston promptly greets you with... More
