Shoutout to Rene for fabulous service! Wonderful meal.
Fortunately got one of the few tables for two that is well protected from other tables. Salmon was delicious and Service was very good and the waiter had a great sense of humor. Have eaten here many times and always pleased.
The restaurant had outdoor seating which on second Avenue during rush hour was a little noisy. But once conversation started you didn’t notice.
The service and food were excellent, nice wine list price range, reasonable. Wonderful experience.
Great job with COVID cautions.
Would go again and send my friends.
Good food. Good service.
Authentic Italian from the heart of New York City. Loved it!
Great outdoor space though not sure how it will work for the winter. The food is good. The service is always excellent. Local favorite.
Italian food as good as in a trattoria in Rome or Venice: Saltimbocca was excellent; Linguini alla vongole perfectly seasoned and the pasta al dente. Two glasses of very nice Barbaresco served at the right temperature. Unobtrusive excellent service, tables well distanced,
Another lovely evening at Bottega. I would recommend though that the gentleman singing right next to the sidewalk tables perhaps move inside or a bit further away as he was terribly loud (the singing and the music). It was very difficult to have a conversation.
Nice outdoor room. Had lunch and the food was delicious.
How does one say this any more plainly? This is a good restaurant in every sense and they deserve to be supported. The food is dependably good. The service is warm and friendly. And the prices are most affordable.
Give out Mayor and Governor the gesture they deserve. Support your neighborhood restaurants like Bottega and keep them in business.
We had a lovely dinner outside at Bottega. The manager helped us find just the right table, and the team service was attentive and charming. The food and drinks were great. Will return soon, thanks!
Great authentic food and excellent service. Our waiter was clearly knowledgeable and gracefully maneuvered the pandemic safety requirements. Sidewalk eating, even under the awning presents its noise challenges but so be it. Fun lunch worth repeating.
Anthony and staff are wonderful. Always make every meal enjoyable.
Consistently delicious food served in a lovely setting. Pleasant, professional staff. A neighborhood gem. Will continue to return over and over.
Enjoyed dinner. Good food and service. Appreciated restaurant following most Covid rules. Will èat there again soon.
Excellent UES neighborhood restaurant. Congenial staff. Food great. Have eaten there many times. Always great !
No era un agradable lugar
Bottega never disappoints. They have done an amazing job to keep everyone safe with plexiglass dividers. The staff is as attentive as always. The food is as delicious as always. It’s our favorite neighborhood restaurant
The wait staff was very courteous and well prepared for social distancing. The food and wine were excellent. Seating was well planned and executed for covid guidelines. My friends and I had a wonderful evening.
Love this place
Caesar Salad was dry and plain the last two times I ordered it. Needs a little oil and anchovies.
Service was excellent. Food was yummy and a big serving. Prices are high, but NYC appropriate I’m sure.
Fabulous food snd service! We went for lunch and made reservations for dinner. We are glad we were recommended this lovely restaurant as we go into Manhattan 6-10x a year (before the pandemic) and this restaurant will be added to our must go list.
Best meal ever,
A little gem .
I could eat there every night .
The food (calamaretti) was OK; the desert (multi-berry tart) was excellent (worth coming back for). I did not like that there was no wine list and no desert menu; the water recited both by heart but it is impossible to make a rational choice that way. As I was saying, I was very happy with the desert; less so with the wine (house sauvignon blank) which was on the tart side.
Never disappointed! The food is always delicious, serious excellent, and the ambiance is superb!
Good food, good service, very nice outdoor setting
We ate outside and everything was excellent. The manager even came over regularly to see how we were doing. The wine selection was great and service was on point. Would recommend to one looking for authentic Italian cuisine.
Great restaurant. Highly recommend the ravioli and a glass of Pinot noir.
Even outdoor, a perfect experience. Good, service, everything was wonderful.
I go often. Food is consistent and reasonable prices. Large outdoor searing
The Food was better than i expected. The service was also good with several members of the staff really working as a team.
This is a restaurant that deserves to be supported! Antonio and his staff are trying very hard to accommodate his guests despite being barred by our incompetent Mayor from seating people inside.
The food is fresh, tasty and moderately priced. The wine list is good and not expensive. The wait staff are accommodating but not intrusive.
Really great combination. Keep them alive!!
The food and service at Bottega are very good indeed. I happened to dine there at noon on a workday. It was a hot and humid day at our table outdoors and the noise from street traffic was loud. Such is life in Manhattan these days.
The wine was delicious, my pasta dish was wonderful and my date’s chicken entrée was the best he’d ever had.
The ambience was lovely, sitting outside on a nice Saturday evening. We look forward to returning soon!
First time dining out during this pandemic. Seating outside was socially distanced and back from street. Waiters attentive and wore their masks. Looking forward to more outdoor dining.
Large outdoor seating area in front of the restaurant, but not in a blocked off area of the street like some other restaurants. Service was fantastic, pasta was fresh/homemade and delicious. We were there until closing but were never made to feel rushed.
Very nice sidewalk seating area. Food was very good and nice size portions. Service was wonderful.
Sidewalk seating, but the service and dinner was great. I’d highly recommend it to anyone.
Nice outdoor patio. Great service and delicious food!
