La Bottega has been a mainstay for both locals and tourists alike since 1997. Having started as a sandwich and deli operation, La Bottega has grown into one of the top destinations for dining in the Vail Valley. 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. Of course our famous sandwiches and our stone oven pizzas are still

Was fine, but facility was somewhat run down. Fixture was hanging by duct tape, upholstery on my bar stool was torn, floors had visible wear in high traffic areas.

La Bottega's food is excellent however the service was poor, which is not acceptable given how expensive it is. The owners seem to be making a choice to have a high-volume take-out operation at the expense of patrons who make advance reservations and whose orders get displaced by their take-out business. That is a poor business decision for a high-end restaurant.

Full disclosure, we don’t eat out often in Vail because of the prices and the size of our family, but for Christmas Eve, we chose La Bottega. The server seemed overly busy for the dining experience we were paying for, which was unfortunate. We have actually lived in Italy and we were expecting better quality pasta, but the pizza was good. Also, for an Italian restaurant experience, we could only laugh when Bottoms Up by Brantley Gilbert started playing in the background and then AC/DC.

The food was really bad. We ordered the steak, the veal Milanese and a pasta dish. All were bad - no flavor and not cooked properly. My salad came without the ingredients listed on the menu. Instead of giving me a new salad or returning it to the kitchen they just brought me a bowl with pancetta to add to my salad. I went here on a friend’s recommendation but it really wasn’t worth it.

La Bottega has such a nice combination of options for patrons: high end dining, pizza for families or groups, bar scene, etc.
I chose salmon for my entree, and it was absoutely perfect. My husband had veal scallopini and said it was perfect as well. We shared the Greek salad, and I'm glad we did because it was quite large! Might be a suggestion for future menu options (large or small serving size).
Our server was GG (not sure of spelling) and he was delightful. Attentive without being intrusive, super friendly and helpful.
The background restaurant noise is moderately high, but more of a "these people are having a good time" level rather than "I can't hear my companion speak" level.
La Bottega has always been one of our favorite restaurants, and that has not changed. Even after the pandemic, it is still fantastic.

Avoid. 7 minutes late and rude hostess told me I should have called to notify them, but as they were not busy they could seat us.

Food very mediocre and overpriced. Service was good.

Overall, nothing special and overpriced.

Service was fast and okay. Food wasn’t great, the TED sandwich is mostly thick cold bread and the Caesar Salad was rather below average. The onion soup was the best of what we ate. Also, they charged us a $80.00 bill for those 3 things when the actual total was roughly $30.00.
They corrected it but still wasn’t the best experience overall.
