La Bottega offers authentic Italian cuisine with the Chef Stephen Virion having worked in Tuscany and the Veneto regions of Italy. His wife, Elisabetta, is from Asiago, Italy and has crafted the wine list to compliment the cuisine. La Bottega's Wine Bar is a great place for apres ski or to just have a glass of wine with friends from our award winning wine list.

    We ate dinner at La Bottega a couple of nights earlier and the pasta and salad was delicious. The pizza looked so good we went back for lunch and we’re not disappointed. The pizza was a generous portion and my husband had an Italian sausage and peppers and onion sandwich and it was great. Definitely recommend this restaurant great service, nice ambiance and the food is delicious.

    Terrible meal. The gluten free pasta was overdone. The staff did nothing to correct this problem. The veal had no flavor and was overdressed with cream sauce. I would not go back. Very overpriced for the quality of the food and service.

    We were seated quickly and the wait staff was pretty attentive. We ordered the beef carpaccio, which was good but a little heavy on the cream sauce. The pasta dishes were very good - spicy sausage and duck. Old fashions and tiramisu were fine but not noteworthy.

    La Bottega has been one of our favorites for years -- cozy in the winter, Open air two-tops and a beautiful deck for eating in the summer. The pastas and the salads are terrific as are the pizzas, with prices reasonable for Vail. Our only issue is that the bread, for an Italian restaurant is pretty average, and we don't understand why a bruscetta is served on mediocre bread that hasn't been toasted. Everything else on the menu is tasty and authentic.

    We had a party of 6 and 2 of us had the beet salad with chicken. The chicken was inedible — it looked like it was plastic and we couldn’t cut it with a knife. I’ve never had chicken so bad in my life. The beet part was great. Service was a bit rushed and quite unfriendly. Beautiful setting. Nice menu. Very expensive, especially when it was bad. Still, I would probably go back. The pasta dishes looked great.

    First and foremost I’ll start by saying that the service we received from our server was great. Zero complaints. In fact she’s the reason why my overall review is fair and not poor. She was courteous, quick and amicable. On the topic of food quality and value, the friend I was with and I were extremely dissapointed. We ordered a wagyu, foie-gras & truffle sandwich and two top-tier pastas. Both pastas were bland, overcooked and in the case of the tagliatelle (which was supposed to have 5gr of freshly shave black truffles) it had 1gr at best and they were overpriced summer truffles mind you, not even prized winter truffles. When we mentioned this to the server she immediately brought out a plate with about one more gram of shaved truffles. So in total maybe 2gr NO MORE. The dish, had it been properly executed, would’ve been well-worth the price they charge for it, but like this it felt like an absolute ripoff. Being an owner of homes in Italy and having had dinner at La Nonna the night before, I was quite excited to try this place out. But I’ve rarely or ever had such overcooked and flavor-less pasta (both plates) at a proper dining restaurant in my life. The sandwich was ok as you would’ve expected from the ingredient list. The wine collection was also decent. Both my friend and I are, have been in the service and entertainment industries for decades and felt truly underwhelmed.
