    Our family met here after a memorial service. We arrived at noon on a Sunday and the place was not very crowded yet. Our service was attentive and the food was good solid Italian fare. There were some drink specials and the Spicy Bloody Mary's were very good. The waitress was great at reciting all of the menu and bar items. We ordered from the lunch menu, but the dinner menu was quite extensive & we will be back to give it a try. There is a nice market next door with fresh food, a meat market & fish counter in addition to Italian groceries and pastries. I think it is a winner for groups.

    2nd time dining in summer for the all u can eat, 2nd experience did not go as well, waitress was awful and price per person not really worth it. Food was good overall, but prime rib station - members of party complained meat was not even hot. Would not recommend buffet. Sorry to because as I stated above we really enjoyed our 1st time but price went up and wait staff not performing and funny because all they do at buffet is refill drinks and take plates away.

    They are great! Service was excellent. When we asked for a table not in the bar they accommodated as quickly. The food is absolutely excellent and when they bring the bread they bring oil and butter and all the accomplishments.

    Went here for Mother's Day dinner wh party of five. We were sat in a banquet room at a 10 person table making it not so personal. The manager are audibly rude to the hostess. The food was superb for the most part. One of the dinners ,chicken Marsala was so tough we could not cut through it. The manager made no attempt to ask how the meals were.

    As of Mother's day morning we did not have any plans and decided to go to Bottos last minute. We have been in their bar area for appetizers and drinks, but never ate in their dining area. Service was great and our waitress was very friendly. The food was great as well. We will definitely be back.

    We went there for brunch on Mother's Day. The made-to-order omlettes and desserts were very good, but the buffet was just ordinary. To be fair, we went closer to close-down time, so things weren't as fresh as they probably were earlier in the morning. The service was good, our waitress was very nice, and the room we were in was bright and sunny.

    Went to Botto's for Mother's Day Brunch. Buffet was $35 a person. Server never mentioned to us that there were custom omelettes or waffles and never mentioned that Mimosas or Bloody Marys were included. Food was average, time to get drinks was slow and needed to remind server to bring the drinks we ordered. Didn't enjoy, didn't seem like a good value, won't be going back anytime soon

    Botto's has a bar area/menu, a restaurant and another area for special occasion. The bar was PACKED and there was a wedding going on, so needless to say the restaurant room was quite loud. The food was good. Sauces were great. Just be prepared for loud.

    Last minute plans, no problem with getting a reservation. Prompt service, soup, chicken parm was great. Only complaint was the server really didn't come back to check in with us a lot, like to see if we needed drinks, etc. No butter or dipping oil for bread, had to ask twice. All in all nice place, great food and would visit again

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/24/2013
    We made a reservation for early dinner on Christmas Eve - which I guess a lot of people do. Instead of being seated in the nice dining room, we were seated in the noisy and busy bar, which made for an unpleasant dining experience. There were loud people at the bar, and the tables were jammed in very close to one another (I guess so they could get as many people in as possible on a busy night). The food was good, but we were so put off by the seating arrangements that our meal was not enjoyable. I will avoid this place at busy times in the future.

    And the food does not always measure up. Recently, two in our party had overcooked lobster - which is inexcusable for what they charge. Pasta dishes are ridiculously huge - which some may like, but I find unappealing. The ambiance is nice, the service very good, as is the food. Usually.

    Perfect place for a little Sunday Family Dinner. Had family in from out of town, had my son Blessed that afternoon and rather than a big "to do" with a bunch of people I wanted a place that my family could just sit and have a nice dinner together. Great time, great food, great service! I had put in a request when I was making the online reservation that I needed a high chair or booster and the table was already waiting for us when we got there w/ a high chair.
