“Great Little Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Visited at lunchtime, varied menu, various panini's and specials board to £8.50. We had two pasta dishes off the specials board, very good value and great flavours. Only 8/9 tables, relaxed atmosphere, very attentive and friendly service. Looking forward to calling again. Takeaway service available, serves in the evening Thursday and Friday, best to pre book. Very busy at lunchtime, but quick services, freshly made dishes.

“Great food and fantastic service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

A friend and I visited La Bottega earlier this evening for a meal and it was lovely! The staff are so friendly and attentive and the service is very fast. The food is also great - good portion sizes, clearly very freshly made using good quality ingredients, and all at a very good price! I will undoubtedly be visiting this fantastic independent restaurant again very soon!

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Why haven't I been here before! Lovely friendly family feel to what is a cosy cafe style eatery. Authentic pasta dishes bouncing with flavour and quality ingredients. BYOB which, along with the value pricing, makes this a bargain find. Lovely.

“Nice fresh pasta, superb value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

Ate here with my partner on the Fri of the Xmas market in the evening.
Nice intimate cafe style. Service with a smile and very nice pasta dishes. I had meatballs and my partner had an obviously home made lasagne. Both were good portions and very tasty. Sorry I forgot the fresh brochette to start that was also lovely.
This little restaurant does quality pastas at a bargain price, AND you can byow.
Unbeatable value !
Recommend to anyone and will return.
Suggest booking cos only petite and has limited evening opening days.

“Now A Regular Customer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

I first found this little place when starting my new job which happened to be across the road from the restaurant. I now pop in for lunch every other day!
The service is top notch! Always very friendly and very helpful. The couple who own the restaurant are always very polite and welcoming.
The food always tastes very freshly made and is by no means 'ready meal' like some of the bad reviews have tried to portray. I have often had to wait a few minutes for fresh ingredients to be prepared!
The place is very cute and cosy. It is only a small place but that only makes the experience more personal and most definitely does not put me off from going there.

I am now one hundred percent a regular and loyal customer. Me and my boyfriend always pop in for lunch. I often stop by to get breakfast and the freshly made hot drinks are to die for!

I personally recommend a breakfast wrap! The wrap is only £3.15 and is jam packed with ingredients! It's a steal.

A wonderful restaurant couldn't be owned by more wonderful people.

You really have to try this place.
