Located in Hawthorne"s historic Degray house, Bottagra Restaurant opened its doors in early 2008. What was once used as an encampment for General Lafayette's troops during the Revolutionary War has been transformed into a modern, elegant restaurant with the feel and charm of a Tuscan villa. Chef-Owners Robert Vicari and Carlo Carbonara have fused their extensive restaurant experience together to offer a variety of dishes hailing from both the northern and southern regions of Italy. Offering a full bar and extensive wine list, as well as private rooms, Bottagra
is a diners' dream for gatherings both large and small.

We have eaten at Bottagra's a few times and each visit has been wonderful. The staff is exceptional. We have never had anyone that isn't great at what they do. We will be returning and have been recommending this restaurant to our friends and family.

Picked place for belated birthday dinner. Entry was quick and cordial. Shown to table straight away. Wait staff very professional. So far so good.

I ordered tuna appy which was described as sesame coated and when plated was coated in black pepper. Too spicy for my taste. Had it been described correctly would not have ordered it. Hubby ordered carpaccio. Very nice presentation and quite tasty. Fresh and delish.
My entree choice was veal chop med rare. The flavors were amazing but the chop was served rare. Too rare for my liking so I picked at the outer cooked portion and the center was taken away uneaten. Waste of a $40 entree. Hubbies entree was striped bass. Served over black truffle risotto. Excellent choice. Very nice dish.
Home made sorbet and gelato was excellent.
Overall it was a nice time.

Note to self order meat med and not med rare.

We've been going for a few years now and Never been disappointed. Bottagra is amazing. We've had our engagement party, bridal shower, mothers day, thanksgiving, new years and have brought many friends. It's sooo good!

Very disappointed, to start they didn't have 2 bottles of wine that were listed, the third bottle was fair at best. My shrimp scampi was mushy way overcooked, my wife's veal too thick and the sauce too thick. Both boys were disappointed in their pasta dishes. Saving grace, we had a gift certificate. Wouldn't recommend.

Friends Holiday Dinner was amazing as usual ...This place never disappoints from the cocktails with their unique glassware to the food down to the choice of music playing in the background ! We all split a few items on the menu and specials and shared everything family style so we can each get a taste ! The owner is constantly walking around greeting everyone making sure all the guests are well taken care of!!

Xmas eve we arrived about 7:30. Service was very slow-too slow. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for our appetizers.

Food was good but overall too slow.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. It was on Christmas Eve so I would expect things were different than on a typical night. Very crowded which caused a little confusion about the reservation. The food was prepared well and serve . I certainly will go back and enjoy it again on a more typical evening without the added excitement of Christmas Eve
