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.

Another great experience at La Bottega. It was my birthday dinner. We had an amazing server. Friendly and knowledgeable. I had the Salmon. Amazing. Highly recommend. My family had Italian favorites like gemelli with vodka sauce and italian sausage which was delicious. Great wine selection also. We will go back. Always excellent

We went as a family on vacation. The restaurant is a real Italian spot with a very Italian feel on the main floor. The upstairs is basic and out of the main area, loses the “feel” of the restaurant itself. The food was good. Some dishes were excellent and some average. Service was efficient. I would return.

Food was mediocre. Server was rude. Disappointing. We were here a couple of years ago and has a great experience. This time it seems they just want to move you out of your table ASAP.

Worst experience in vail over the last six years. I am a local server and more than likely to be more forgiving. Not on this occasion however. Server was not good at her job nor did she seem to try/care. No greeting upon arrival and host said nothing as we left. Food wasn’t any better. Olive Garden has better food.

I normally do not take the time to review restaurants, however, I will make an exception for La Bottega. My two adult children and I had dinner at this wonderful restaurant on 2/26/21, and it was honestly one of the best meals we had while in Vail. I look forward to returning to Vail and to La Bottega soon!

Food and waiter were great but there was very little concept of social distancing.

Most tables were much less than 6 feet apart, people were jumbled at the bar and front door areas. In some cases, when a table of 4 got up, 6 sat down... so impossible to tell how they were metering the capacity.

Go after the pandemic, this was an uncomfortable and disappointing experience.

Be prepared to only have one hour to eat with the manager telling you it’s time to leave after spending close to $300 for two adults. Food came in 5 minutes after placing the order. We were rushed the whole time.
