La Bottega - Vail
Have rarely left negative reviews as I travel frequently, dine out frequently, and try to be understanding. Take this or leave this, but you will be disappointed with amateur food, disaffected service, and a tavern ambience. Very crowded space and very high price. Avoid.
it was Yummy!!!
Worst dining experience ever! Made reservation weeks ahead of time to celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary. From the moment we were seated at a terrible high top table in bar - very noisy and busy section until we left the service was terrible. We have been dining here for over 20 years and always enjoy this location when we visit Vail. It is just not the same and will not go back. We had such fabulous service and anniversary celebrations at several other restaurants in Vail. It’s too bad no one cared here.
Better than normal pizza
La Bottega is always good. The only caveat is to sit downstairs. The upstairs room has zero ambiance and feels too confined. The restaurant could really turn the upstairs into an exclusive room with a little decor upgrades for better ambiance.
El hostess fue muy amable todo el tiempo. Nuestro mesero no lo fue. Casi no se acercaba a nuestra mesa y lo hacía como si estuviera molesto. Una vez que se lo comentamos al hostess la atención del mesero cambio para bien.
Will always be our favorite spot in Vail!
Chris was a great server and the spicy sausage Gemelli was fantastic.
Tha food was fantastic
It’s always a highlight of our Vail visits. One of our most favorites and we’ve been eating there as long as they’ve been open!
Excellent food and service but the wine list is inordinately overpriced.
Celebrating our family moon!
Consistently superb dining!!!
As always, Food was great! Our waitress was not very knowledgeable about the menu and our service was slow
Venison was delicious... pasta carbonara was good not great .
The food was not as good as in previous years. We had a crab pasta (signature linguine) it had no flavor. The pizza was average. The waiters were very nice. The host was disrespectful and his behavior was not becoming of a host in a nice restaurant. The last time for us.
Food was very good and server was friendly and personable. I would go back again.
All around great experience. Carbonara was over the top awesome. Waiter was great.
Food and atmosphere was outstanding, service was pretty slow
Definitely a little pricey for a bowl of pasta. Nothing to love, but certainly nothing to hate about the place either. Getting seated always seems to take awhile here. Would give it a solid "B" grade.
Gran lugar súper recomendable!!! Todo muy bien la comida es buenísima y el servicio tmb! Con open table las mesas son las de afuera (ni te dan buenos lugares) pero movimos ahí con el personal y nos dieron una buena mesa. Pero pa q chequen uds q ni les ofrecen buenos lugares.
We had a delicious meal. Very nice wine list as well!
Food is very bland and even the cheesecake was lacking that creamy texture. Had lump crab meat pasta and classic spaghetti and meatballs - both very bland
Good food , good service , but mandatory tips for the service it’s unbearable, there is no choice! if you want or not to give a tip and also how much you want to gratify the service. It’s not our decision , Its mandatory by the restaurant! Thats the restaurant policy. How the restaurant will motivated the workers to do a good service if the client has no voice, if one waiter punch you , you need to pay the service ... I never seen this in USA
We booked last minute so the table was not the best. But from where we were we could watch chefs at work at the wood fired oven. The menu was comprehensive and included a few of my favourites. Some complimentary bread and Italian breadsticks were provided (unusual in the pricey resort of Vail). Hubbys lobster bisque was tasty and not too rich. I enjoyed my veal Milanese chop with spinach and potatoes although the portion was huge. But it was over $30 so needed to be! Hubby had gnocchi in a rage sauce and loved it. We shared a creme brûlée to finish and all the food was of a high standard. I can understand why this restaurant is popular most nights.
My husband, our daughter and I went for dinner the other night and was very disappointed. My husband had beaded veal chop which was over cooked and very dry, my daughter and I had spaghetti carbonara which also didn’t have very much creamy sauce and could of had a bit more flavour. We told them our thoughts on the food and the waiter didn’t seem to care. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Extremely busy and loud place. It was hard to hear the conversation at the table over the loud backgrond noise. We had 3 people penned into a small table next to the window which made it feel even more crowded. Food was just OK and server wasn't very attentive. I left full so I guess it ticked that box.
My favorite place in Vail. The food, wine list, service and ambiance is impeccable. The warm glow and character of the restaurant invites a wonderful relaxing dinner experience. I’ve been coming here over the last 14 years and each time I try something different and the restaurant just keeps getting better.
Argula salad, cannelloni & penne with chicken were all delicious.
Best fresh pasta in Vail. The service was also amazing. We went twice during our visit to vail
Always visit La Botegga when in Vail great for Lunch and dinner!
Excellent food, handsome place, good service.
Good well excited Italian food.
Love this place!! Best Gnocchi around...little pillows of potato love in Parmesan & Truffle oil❤️
Los mejores gnoccis que he probado en mi vida (white truffle gnoccis), las sopas buenísimas, crème brûlée excelente, todo delicioso
In past years we have had good experiences here, but this year our food was lackluster and the noise level was high. I had the porcini ravioli in sage sauce, but couldn’t taste either mushroom or sage. Three others had linguini with clams and found the entree bland, with limited seasoning. On the plus side, the beet salad was delicious but, sadly, we won’t be back.
Delicious food and great service. Very busy, make sure you make a reservation in advance if you are coming into Vail.
Excellent food and ambiance
