lovely italian selections al frescoWe dined out in the back courtyard in mid June - lovely calm ambience. Very good selection of italian fare, especially appetizers.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Oasis in the CityFive of us chose Bottino almost at random, based on little more than its being located near where we all were. It turned out to be a fortuitious surprise. We snagged a table in the back garden; looking out abouve the fence you see nothing but trees, near and far. It seemed impossible that we were on 10th Ave in Manhattan! And while the menu at first glance appeared to be not very out of the ordinary, each dish we had was superior to what was expected. I particular, we liked the "tempura" of veggies and sea food, the lasagna and the spinach ravioli. The bittersweet chocolate pudding was outstanding. We all agreed that this place was worth visiting again.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Special!I always enjoy an evening here, they don't rush you, the food, cocktails and wine list are all very good. But combine it with a table in the garden room makes it all the more special!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely restaurantBottino has an enclosed garden room--ask to be in or near that.

Server Blake was charming and attentive. Ask for him.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighbourhood gemWe were a group of 5 , and really enjoyed our night. My husband felt that he didn't have a lot to choose from on the menu but everyone else really loved their meal. Our male waiter was a bit off hand & gave the impression that he really didn't want to be there but this won't stop us from going back. I really want to dine outdoors in the warmer weather!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local Italian in ChelseaExcellent lasagna! Very appealing food and wine. Nice to sit in Atrium.
We'll be back when we're in the neighborhood.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly reason I'm not givingOnly reason I'm not giving this place an "outstanding" in every respect was because of our waitress, who not only was an ice princess, but who left us to our own devices all night ... we had to end up asking the busboy for coffees etc. her total lack of personality was the clincher. otherwise, this is one of the loveliest places in NYC.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAs soon as we sat down weAs soon as we sat down we were greeted with a very friendly smile. Our winsome waiter made wonderful suggestions as he had a very good knowledge of the menu and wines. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service very attentive. We started with a pear salad and a tuna tartare, followed by the filet mignon. The food was delicious. We really enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBecome a regular!You can never go wrong with Bottino.
