We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience from the moment we were seated. The service was good and the food was delicious. We shared the sausage and broclirabe appetizer which was outstanding. The wine list is top notch , so we went with a Cabernet. All of us chose different entrees. I enjoyed a gnocchi & sausage dish, cooked to perfection. My companions selected a chicken dish and a fish diis. Both enjoyed. We would go back.

My wife and I have dined at Botto's several times. We find the food and atmosphere to our liking. Our only complaint was our waitress. While she was nice, she was also very indifferent to us. She appeared to be distracted and perhaps a little overwhelmed which was surprising because we had dinner at 5pm and the restaurant didn't become busy until around 6:30 p.m. I'm fairly certain we will dine at Botto's again in the future but we will definitely consider the service we received if a choice between another restaurant arises.

Pure happenstance. Pulled off I-295 for gas. Decided to seek a dinner location. A look up on Trip Advisor followed by Open Table got me a reservation in 20 minutes. 2.5 mile ride and seated.
Food and service were terrific.

We've eaten at Botto's often but this time we were disappointed. Had reservations for 4 at 7PM. Arrived at 6:50. We were told our table was being cleared. Asked if we would go up to balcony which we agreed to but after waiting for 25 minutes beyond our time we were seated by the doorway with people {including children} running around and thru to the bar area. Very haphazard evening. Seemed like there were too many people but no one knew what was going on. Food was just OK, service was less than we expected. Won't go back for a while...sad to say.

Outstanding service and food. Great for large parties. Weekend music outside. Bonus is a great specialty food store and gift shop. Easy to get to and plenty of parking. If you love Italian, you'll love this restaurant.

I have been going to Botto's for a while now and I have never been disappointed. The service as well as the food is always very good. Recently, we sat in the bar for dinner and it was definitely an energetic scene, especially with the live music. Overall, Botto's is a great restaurant and I would suggest it to anyone.

We took our family visiting from Arizona out for dinner. We all had wonderful meals! My gluten free pasta was savory and safe - that means a great deal since I have Celiac. I highly recommend Botto's!

The appetizers were all over cooked for seafood entries. We ordered 7 and they were all over cooked. The dinners we ordered were all very good, except for the baked penne bolognaise was again very over cooked to blackened edges making the sauce taste burnt. Our server was exceptionally nice and a well crafted server. thank you for a lovely evening. I would expect to return, just skipping the appetizers.

Et here often; big fan of Botto's sausage & always try to buy some at the store when we finish dining. This trip, I ordered sausage with my pasta but it wasn't up to the high Botto's standards I've long enjoyed. Very tough, too tough to eat. My server was very apologetic at my disappointment and did bring me a beer (which I had already ordered) gratis. Very thoughtful of her. Both the rest of my meal and my wife's meal were excellent, as usual. The addition of Gelato to the dessert menu was welcome; my wife & I enjoyed a sample of two of the five choices. Aside from the minor 'hiccup', everything about our dining experience was great. We will continue to dine here.

I have had many dinner meals here (always outstanding), and this was the first time for lunch. The service and food were terrific as usual. I very much appreciate the attentiveness of the chef and server to my gluten allergy. It is wonderful to have meals and not worry about getting sick!

Had a fine meal at Botto's, but despite the fact that we had an Open Table reservation in hand, we were initially seated in the bar area, and not the smallish dining room. After we requested a switch it was done fairly quickly. The bar area is fine for lunch, but not great for dinner. Service was very prompt and courteous, I order Chicken Parmagiano and it was quite good. Others in our party order Chicken Marsala, also very good. Would go again, but make SURE you ask for dining room seating.
