A word from Bottega Pizzeria
From their aperitivi to their gelati, Bottega Pizzeria brings a taste and feel of Italy to Montreal's Little Italy. Their passion for quality serves as a driving force behind all their hand-made products. Their authentic Neapolitan pizzas are cooked in a 900 degree oven, imported from Naples. Since 2006, Bottega has been inviting guests to come together and share some of Italy's traditions with their friends and family.

    Very busy Friday night, waited 20 minutes for our table, but Maître d' offered us a fee Aperol Spritz. Pizza was good, salads just ok. Service was efficient, but not friendly. Overall a nice place off the beaten path.

    This time we ordered the daily soup, contrary to what we normaly get, the portion was very small (I am guessing they were running out). The music was also very loud; we couldn't hear ourselves accros the table. As for the rest, excellent as always.

    The food at Bottega is solid. On a Friday night, however, the restaurant is very noisy making it hard to hear the people you are dining with.

    Supper on Thanksgiving weekend with friends. Been to Bottega a few times and always liked it. But have never had the pizza since there was always something else to try. Had good entrée and then pizza which which pretty good though the crust seemed a little stretchy and was mildly burnt underneath - didn't affect flavour but made eating it a little difficult. Had nice wine and dessert (canolli). Service was excellent.

    We find ourselves at Bottega pretty much every week - it's really that fantastic. We've taken friends and family there over the years and they always want to go back. The service, the ambiance, the incredible food, and excellent wine list - it's always a sure bet for a great evening.

    Great food, nice environment (visually). The music, though, was too loud and it was difficult to have a conversation. The pizza and alcohol are overpriced. For two pizzas and a few drinks my wife and I spent $90.

    We've been travelling quite a bit and experienced a number of very good to outstanding restaurants. But after all that what do you do, where do you go? You go where the food is comforting yet impeccable, the service is relaxed, attentive and professional, and finally where the wine selection is selective and priced perfectly. This is what that restaurant is to my family now. We are a family of 6, often bring the grandparents there, and time after time, we leave completely satisfied with the wonderful food, the good times and the fantastic little gem of a bottle we had over a simple pizza. Simply, happiness. I would never hesitate to bring anyone there.

    Went there with a bunch of friends yesterday. I have to say that their service is top notch. The food were all excellent till the pizzas (and one calzone) came. It seems that they might have changed the recipe for the dough or the temperature of the oven. All the pizzas were a bit too chewy and burnt. Told the waiter about it and he didn't charge us for the pizzas. Last time I went must have been over 1 year ago, but the manager seems to be the same young guy so I miss their old pizza and hopefully it was just a newbie chef in the kitchen yesterday.

    My husband and I fell in Love with wood oven pizza on a trip to Italy two years ago. Since then, it has been my mission to find similar closer to home. On a recent business trip to Montreal we happened upon Bottega and it has since become my favourite restaurant. From start to finish, absolutely delicious!

  • Excellent but expensive
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/14/2014
    At La bottega, the food and the service was very good. The ambiance is great, relax. The major problem is the price. The prices are exagerated in comparison with what is offered: 7$ for a bottle of San Pelligrino, 3$ for a drop of expresso, 7,50$ for two scoops of gelato, etc. The only good deal is the pizza itself. As soon as you order a drink or an appetizer, they rip you off. It is too bad because it is a great restaurant, but the pricing politics tarnished the whole experience.

    True to it's reputation! Very good pizza! It is true that the oven makes a difference. The only negative note: it was full (which is good for the owner and shows how people enjoy it) therefore we could hardly hear each other .

  • Amazing food but really loud music
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/27/2014
    I had diner for the first time at this place the other night and was amazed by the quality of the food. The menu is simple yet has all you need for a pizza place (including appetizers & desserts). Service was very good; we did not have to wait between our courses. The waiter gave us great advice on what to order and made us all very happy. However, the music was so loud (though good) we could barely hear each other out. It spoilt a bit our experience as we felt that we had to scream to hear each other. I would definitely recommend this place (especially to pizza lovers); the prices are good and the food really tasty but maybe don't go if you mind the noise and/or are meeting people for the first time. It makes communication a bit tricky :).

    The ricotta buffala was de-li-cious (with a stronger taste then a mozza buffalo), the gnocchis were perfect. The pizzas are ALL great and the surprise, time after time, is the Calzonne (which I don't usually like because it's just too much bread!) because it is light, rim-filled with taste and just an all around pleasure! The only hic is the service: our waitress, a charming blond italian young woman with a smile, was great but the 'guy' who brought the food was abrupt, couldn't be bothered to say hello and threw the food on the table... (I can ignore the nasties of this world, no prob, and the great waitress compensated largely) but really, when I read the number of negative comments on service, you'd think management would rectify.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Waiter was a little bit cocky, Didn't answer our questions, almost laughed at them and did not give us any advice on what food to pick or wine to select. Would still go back b/c pizza was to die for but customer experience did not impress. Also, a bit too expensive on the drinks side. Food is priced very accordingly but $10 for a beer is a bit too much even for a Moretti.
