Wait and check-in took a long time even with reservation, but they were very busy so its understandable. The service and food was great!

First happy hour since Covid and Bottega didn’t disappoint! We will be back soon! Rochelle was super attentive and friendly as usual. I’ve certainly missed the fabulous food, superb staff and delicious desserts!

For an Italian restaurant, the meatballs were very dense and not very enjoyable. Pasta was good....cocktail was great. Wish I had the recipe for that. Good bread and good desserts.

The service was a bit slow, albeit it was a Saturday. But the food was solid usual. Reminds me of the old Damiano's days. I only wish I had room for dessert.

I ordered the swordfish and the flavor was good but the fish was over cooked where it was chewy. However, everything else was good.

Met a girlfriend for dinner and drinks. Service was prompt and servers were knowledgeable. Food and ambience was great! We haven’t seen each other in a while and enjoyed a visit, without being interrupted but still attentive service. Lastly, carrot cake= YUM!

Another great meal at Bottega Michelangelo! Celebrated Valentine Day with a couple drinks - they really know how to make a great old fashioned! Ordered the Valentines Special with the fried squash blossoms, Crab stuffed shrimp and Chicken Cacciatore - All were yummy. Ended meal with a fab piece of the chocolate mousse cake. Cannot wait to go back!

Everyone at this place was very nice and attentive. We got the best seat in the house on the back patio in the sun. Food was excellent and so was the service. A little out of the way from our Tucson stay but worth the drive. Try the pistachio cheesecake for dessert!

Made a reservation & forgot it was a holiday. Despite the lag in service probably because the kitchen is so fussy (not a bad thing actually)& getting stuck in the shaded rear patio on a cool day was a small hassle, but the food they put out certainly outweighs a small inconvenience. On a warmer day it would be even a nicer outside venue.
Food was hot coming out, nicely plated & tasty. Word of caution, put on blinders when walking by the dessert case. You won't be disappointed.

The calamari appetizer was really good, served quickly. Maybe would’ve been better with some bread to sop-up the sauce.
Entree’s we’re OK. Swordfish was dry & the linguine & clams were bland.
Tirimisu was the superstar of the meal. YUMMY

Great Valentines dinner for our 45th! Menu was a nice selection to choose from. For a busy evening during Covid, our service was incredible! We will definitely add them to our “regular stops”!

First the positives: food was good and fairly priced. We requested outdoor seating by a heater and we got that. Now the negatives: I ordered rigatoni, but when the order was delivered to the table, it was risotto. His response was “ I heard u say risottos”. We had been hiking all day with only trail mix for lunch. I was hungry and really not wanting to wait for a plate of rigatoni, so I told them I would accept the dish. I like risotto but not head on shrimp or peas which were in the dish ( it was good). At end of meal I was anticipating they would comp use dessert ( didn’t happen) . At very least I was expecting the lower cost of my ordered entree would b on bill vs higher cost of received entree. It was not!
It is the small things that make u recommend a restaurant or make u want to return to a restaurant. Not sure I would do either

We had a great meal sitting on the front patio. At least 2 of the patio heaters weren’t working so we couldn’t get one close to our table... they need to make sure the heaters are all working.

Valentine’s date night. We ordered of the happy hour menu - meatball sliders. Split a salad and the rigatoni w/Gorgonzola cheese sauce. Finished with carrot cake and coffee. Everything was excellent!! Patio was a little chilly, but was perfect when they turned on the outdoor heaters!

We have always enjoyed our meals and sometimes it is just good and other times better. We felt they were pushing the COVID 19 restrictions and had more tables filled than they should have.
