This small gem of a bistro transports me back to my days of travel in Italy. The menu of soups, salads, sandwiches at lunch is authentic, food tasty and well prepared, service prompt and friendly. They have a small selection of deli items. It's a great place for lunch, nice outdoor area weather permitting. They also serve dinner.

My friends who visit the area once a year always visit this gem of a restaurant. It was worth the trip across the river at rush hour. Tuesday is a wine by the bottle deal night. We had the antipasta which was good. The Gorgonzola cheese cake was good, but we expected a more a bit more pungent flavor. The... More

Entering La Bottega was like visiting a quaint, family-owned business in Northern Italy. The ambiance was friendly and quaint (not too small!). You could enjoy some amazing Italian food and shop for Italian products before or after your meal. The wait staff was very friendly, engaging and fun.

This locally family owned restaurant is fantastic. Their dinners are italian gourmet with a large selection of wines. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. Pastas are perfectly cooked with choices of adding a large meat ball, shrimp or sausage. Main course meals do change with the seasons offerings. Chicken and lamb entrees are my favorites. I also, would recommend... More

This is a small place that serves fantastic Italian dishes with a large wine selection. The best part for this traveler was they not only offer gluten free options but a very aware of dietary needs. We had Jen as our server. She took the time to go over the menu with us and to point out what options were... More

A good stop for nice dining for Italian here in Vancouver , the place is relatively small with outdoor seating , featuring a great anti pasta platter for an appetizer and an Arnold Palmer tea that they mix and toss in front of you with lemons. The entree's are similar to most Italian and done well, a bit over priced... More

I've been eating here for well over 10 years. Always consistently good with a varied menu (the wild boar is killer when they have it!), great wine selection, dedicated knowledgeable staff and fine desserts. They also host larger events with flair and professionalism (we held my wife's 60th birthday party here and it was fantastic). Can't recommend this highly enough... More

The food is the best we have encountered not only in Vancouver but almost anywhere! You cannot go wrong with any of the options for your meal or the desserts! I wish I could keep it a secret to make getting a table easier, but you will love this place. Offers wines of the world - surrounding you on all... More

The food here is excellent. The wines are wonderful and your server will help you choose the right wine for your meal. We've had great meals and very good service at La Bottega's. It's a little pricy, but worth it. The feel is casual and friendly.

Thank tegrn1
