Description: A favourite Italian proverb is "A tavola non si invecchia" - at the table one does not age - so relaxed meals are the key to a long life. That's a proverb that we hold onto at Bottelino's, traditional Italian resturants. You will find our menus are a wide choice of traditional dishes as well as popular classics like Pizza and Pasta ideal for a lazy lunch or evening out with friends.

Bottelinos in Portishead is next to the Dock where there has been a lot of recent development carried out. We stayed in the nearby Travelodge (not great), but Bottelinos was excellent. We arrived without a booking on a very busy Friday night. The Manager said he could probably find us a table in about 25 minutes. So there was time for a quick shower at the hotel, and back to find the table was delivered smack on time. The food was excellent and the service first class. The place was noisy, but what else would it be being full and a Friday night! Also, if you are staying at the Travelodge, then show your room card in the restaurant and you'll get a 20% discount on your food. What's not to like?

I don't want to say a lot because reliving the whole experience makes me very angry. Unfortunately we didn't accept Aqua's later table (they were obviously busy at the time we wanted for a reason). Well we sure know for next time, we'll also play more attention to the reviews on here as well.

Lovely restaurant over looking the quay. The food was excellent and quite reasonably priced. There was a choice of pizzas, pastas and a few other steaks and chicken dishes.

Two of us went here for a quick pizza on a Saturday night. Very busy and noisy and obviously popular with families with kids. Not the place for a romantic dinner a deux unless you book a table for later in the evening when most of the kids have gone home to bed. However, our pizzas were really rather good, with tasty toppings on thin bases that meant you weren't bloated with dough. Service was friendly and the two managers in suits were working their socks off multitasking a variety of jobs alongside the waitresses. One thing - would be nice to see some older staff in this restaurant. The two male managers were young, all the waiting staff were young women.

Thank you Angela and Roger, good to hear and the pizzas are only going to get better now that we have changed to the finest Italian flour and a new menu being launched soon, hope to see you again soon.
