Tired and hungry after a long day of sight-seeing in the Badlands, we were looking for a hardy meal. Our Hotel recommended this place as one of the nicer Italian places, so we walked a few blocks to have Dinner here. Obviously, it was not up to NYC standards, but it looked good for a smaller city like Rapid City.... More

Well located. Busy place! Pricey on wine. Had spaghetti with sausage & marinara sauce. Spouse had same but meatballs instead of sausage. Very few Italian restaurants know how to make meat balls. This is one of them. Marinara sauce left a lot to be desired. Each had a glass of Chianti & it was very good. $55 which included tip

Had dinner with my Son. Restaurant was not busy. The food was mediocre at best. Server took plates and my wine glass before I was done. I got the impression we were being hurried... would NOT recommend this place. Go to Olive Garden. Frozen is frozen. At least for the money you go away full.

After a full day of Wildlife exploration we treated ourselves to a nice dinner out. We chose Botticelli, because of the reviews and because friends had eaten there. My husband and I don't shy away from Garlic but we aren't ones to enjoy a dose so heavy that it burns the inside of your mouth. My husband ordered the Shrimp... More

We had a wonderful dinner here last week after a long day sightseeing. There was plenty of street parking downtown. Both our dinners were cooked to perfection and our server, Leaf, was outstanding - attentive and caring. The outstanding reviews are well deserved. We would highly recommend to others.

They are located in the center of Rapid City and there is street parking all around. We enjoyed it so much, we ate there a second time on our visit. It is good Italian fare in a very nice atmosphere with appropriate background music. The service was attentive and excellent and besides the regular menu there were specials. We had... More

Our waiter at Botticelli did a superb job - friendly, helpful, great in all regards. We went simple Italian for this meal, linguine with sausage and meatballs, and left satisfied but not overly impressed. The sausage was tasty but a bit overcooked. The pasta was cooked to perfection but the sauce simply OK. There were a number of interesting specials... More

Be ready for an incredible experience beginning with the aroma, then the indulgent wine glasses, the amazing bread... remember to save for the entrees. Also, it is in a terrific location downtown, so park your car and enjoy the walk to the restaurant.

Fine, chef-owned restaurant with a personal touch to complement the delicious food. My wife and I arrived 10 minutes from posted closing time and were graciously accommodated.
