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.
Took my fiancée there for the first time and she was very impressed. I've been there several times and never had a bad meal. Top rated.
Amazing food and staff, wonderful attention, great waiter
The food at Bottagra was delicious and such generous portions. Carlo and Rob are the best! Can’t wait to go back for dinner.
The food and service at Bottagra was excellent as always. We were surprised to find new charges on the bill when we paid our check. Non-cash surcharge is a first at Bottagra and now 20% gratuity was automatically added to the bill for a party of 4. We are generous tippers but we’re surprised to find this charge automatically applied for such a small party without any forewarning.
Service and food was outstanding! Highly recommend!
Mother's Day meal was a bit disappointing. Kind of mind boggling when an Italian restaurant overcooks its pasta. Service was not very attentive, but I can understand the Mother's Day rush. I was given a seat in the "wine room" which I didn't really like either. I will be back again but will avoid during holidays and will be sure to ask for a table in the main dining room. And will not order pasta.
Bottagra was a good place to dine, however, it has declined tremendously over the last year. The food quality and service is the worst hit and doesn't justify the high price. To add injury to insult, the waiter added a few items to the bill, and then tried to blame someone else for it. *he was the only one adding to the bill (I could see the wait area from my seat). **also, another customer had the same issue. What a shame that a good restaurant went down so badly
A lack luster Mother’s Day dinner at Bottagra. Limited menus was not a surprise since it’s special occasion dining. Service was ok, seemed a bit diner like to us. The hostesses were not attentive nor did it seem they were old enough to understand good customer service practices. The food was ok but not outstanding as I had been told I could expect. Overall it was just ok.
We had a very enjoyable Mother's Day! Our servicer very nice & accommodating.
Delicious food and ambiance. They accommodate diners with Celiac Disease. We will be back. Highly recommended!
