Description: Bottagra brings a Modern Mediterranean flare to a traditional Italian restaurant in North Jersey.Chef-Owner Carlo Carbonaro and Robert Vicari have fused their extensive restaurant and culinary expertise together, offering a variety of dishes originating from the northern and southern regions of Italy. The dining rooms are classic New York City exuding a unique feel reminiscent of modern Tuscan villas. Mosaic tiles adorn the walls; rich exquisite draperies in deep bronzes, golds and chocolate colors compliment the upscale feel to this new chic spot. Bottagra's menu features wonderful fresh and flavorful specials as well as a full bar and an extensive wine list. Experience Bottagra!

Very good Italian food. This restaurant has been here a long time, but changed names (and I assume owners) several years ago. Good food. Service can be spotty during busy times.

5 of my friends had lunch here today. The food was very good. A little surprised at the cost of the lunch specials. Considering that the average lunch entree was $15 we paid close to $40 for our special entrees. Even though they were very good it does not seem fair to charge 2 and a 1/2 times of the normal menu price. Shame on me for not asking, shame on them for taking advantage.

We made a reservation for Christmas Eve dinner and we had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. We are steady customers and we did not expect a long wait. We were seated and noticed that they put out a one sheet menu that was very small compared the the regular menu. We ordered and had to wait an hour for the appetizers and another hour plus for dinner. Nothing was working correctly. The waiters were attentive but the cooks were not performing! I think Bottagra tried to squeeze the max profit and ended up upsetting a large amount of loyal customers. I always give Bottagra 5 stars but today they get Two stars because after the long waits the food just did not taste good and we were furious. Nothing tastes good when you are mad.
