A bunch of chicks sittin' 'round talking. This place seems appeals to the female crowd who like to drag out their reluctant companions...and their credit cards to a place that no self-respecting Brooklyn-ite would be caught dead in. Salads with latin names, pasta with lot's of "i's" and "t's"...of course, all available with chicken at a modest premium. All this,... More

Okay, I was not sure of this place. When you walk in, the place is full of people and a little loud. Then you are seated in middle of a deli. The deli counter is behind you, with a display of boxed pastas, separating the deli and the cafe. We went for lunch, so I was expecting just a menu... More

Great food, good wine selection, nice atmosphere! Food is made from scratch (mostly) and close to authentic Italian.

We've only been once so far, but will be going back real soon to try more from the menu. I can't believe it took us so long to try this place, but we are glad we did! The red sauce they use on their pasta is excellent. I just had spaghetti with sausages and it was great. It was al... More

Great service, wonderful menu. so so decor. Eating in the middle of a store. The food was so frigging good, ambiance didn't matter. We had a very reasonably priced wine. The water glasses were filled from the start, bread was served and our prosciutto wrapped figs with blue cheese were better that we make at home. Wild Boar pasta was... More

All I can really say is: Gorgonzola Cheesecake. My husband and I battle each other for the last nibble of this AMAZING appetizer. The menu, ambiance, and service is all great, but do not go to la Bottega and leave without having ordered the Gorgonzola Cheesecake.

La Bottega offers a wide variety of authentic, outstanding Italian cuisine! The staff is friendly, attentive and committed to making your dining experience pleasant. You will leave reluctantly, eager to return. They have a nice wine selection as well as deli items available for a take out treat. Were they to offer cooking lessons I would be there at a... More

This is about the only restaurant we go to for dinner when we can get away from our own restaurant. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

This small, homey restaurant is a great place to go for Italian food. The servers are very friendly and helpful but know how to let you eat in peace. I don't like strong tastes so the menu is limited for someone like me but it is authentic and I can always find something I like.

Thank thindi31
