Overall great experience just felt a little rushed when asked to place order for appetizers and entree at same time.
The food is always amazing and the service is wonderful. I can't say enough about this place always a great meal it never disappoints. And an added surprise was the live music last night the guy was fantastic.
Excellent atmosphere, great ambiance, exceptional food
Food and service were great. Requested an indoor table and we were seated in a tent outside that was very cold. It was 40 degrees outside and the heaters they had just weren’t doing the job. My suggestion would be to get more heaters or honor the indoor seating reservation. It may be getting too cold to be having a tent outside for dining.
We have been to Bottagra many times and it remains one of our favorite restaurants. Good drinks, great food and spot on service.
My first time there, everyone else in our party had been there before. We went for 3 birthdays. Great service, appetizers were great, dinner was good, desserts were amazing!! Cheese cake and peanut butter pie 😍. Staff was outstanding!!! We’ll definitely be back!!
We all had a wonderful time and the Food was FANTASTIC!
Long time customers. Used to love this place, but since COVID it is all about Huge groups - inside & out. Loud, thumping music. Limited Menu - very reduced and quality of food is significantly less good. Hate the huge tables of 10 to 20 people. Most smaller tables 2 or 4 were empty. We now understand why. Will not return.
Food and service were excellent. We sat outside in their outdoor dining space and it was very comfortable considering it was a cold night. Wine and cocktail list very creative. Chocolate lava cake was a hit for the table. We will be coming back soon.
Keep up the good work !
Great food Great vibe
Will definitely be back
The ambiance was beautiful! Our food was amazing I got Blue Point oysters WOW, so fresh. Definitely will be returning.
We have eaten at Bottagra many times & loved it. Last night we went & it wasn't very good at all & since it is very pricey, we were very disappointed. The chicken in my chicken marsala was VERY tough. I had to ask for a steak knife to cut it! My friend ordered pasta bolognese (which she's had there many times) & it was extremely watery & disappointing. Plus it was so noisy that we couldn't hear each other talk. Needless to say we won't be going back there anytime soon!
Service was exceptional and the phone was delicious! Highly recommend.
The staff was very courteous and nice. The room was quiet and spaced apart and our waiter wore a mask at all times.
Calamari was delicious,
Entree's are a bit pricey and portions were ok.
Will return for special occasions.
The food and service was excellent as always!
A favorite place! ALWAYS get the spinach malfatti for an appetizer, it's soooo good. Everyone enjoyed their dinner but we did have to send a pork chop entree back because it was really dry and overcooked. The replacement was great but didn't have the fancy sweet potato puree (though it was still delicious). Staff was wonderful!
Food and drinks were amazing, great atmosphere but would’ve liked for our waiter was a little more attentive.
Nothing to add
Do not sit outside if you want a pleasant dining experience. The music is loud, the service is slow and they seat large private parties outside.
Our first visit. Overall D. Just not good. Upon arrival we were seated immediately however our table was in a horrible area we asked to have our table moved but the evening did not improve. Appetizers took 40 minutes and our server was busy with way too many tables. Our dinners were overcooked and cold. We will not return
Excellent food and service. When the restaurant is full , very noisy
Loved it, the food delicious and everything perfect.
From the ambiance to the food and the service
Another fantastic meal At Bottagra! I had fresh oysters to start and veal parmigiana for dinner. Ooh and 2 of the blood orange Manhattans
Food was excellent! Lots of items to chose from and not the typical same Italian you can get anywhere.
Such a great first experience here! Pulled up not knowing what to expect because I have never dined out in Hawthorne, but what a pleasant surprise! The food was wonderful and the portions were great. Will definitely be back!
Food is great. Staff is attentive but not overbearing. Accomodating.
Food was excellent and the tent was gorgeous. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.
Wonderful date night. Been here many times because it’s one of the more consistently good restaurants in our area.
Food was average. Service was excellent!
Food was good as always but now they have introduced a "non cash item" to the bill, i.e., they are now charging their customers for using a credit card. A very cheap practice for what was a classy establishment. I don't mind paying a fair price for a meal, but I don't like customer unfriendly practices like these. Very petty.
Always a wonderful experience. The food was amazing and the service is superb. I highly recommend this place, have a cocktail before dinner or after dinner drink at their beautiful bar or do both!
The dj/singer played such a wide variety of music. We took a group of 17year Olds and a separate table of adults and everyone had a great time. Food was delicious. Staff was awesome
Would have given higher stars except that we were charged $9 because we used a credit card instead of cash. Outrageous 🤮
Wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary! The food was delicious and the staff was incredibly attentive.
Food is always great. Service is always great. Bartenders Ryan and bobby are great. Atmosphere is very nice. Love the outdoor tent area. Valet car service. Would love to be at one of the Thursday night parties but hard to get in.
Compared to other restaurants we frequent we found the tiramisu lacking. All other parts of our meals were outstanding.
The food was delicious. I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly.
