The owner, Nick, just gets it. He understands traditional Italian food, he understands ambience, he understands people/service - and he excels at all of them. As an Italian-New Yorker myself, this is my go-to spot when I’m missing home.

I cannot recommend Bottega enough. Best Italian food in Phoenix, hands down. Plus, there’s plenty from which to choose for those with food allergies/sensitivities.

Thanks for making our anniversary special each year, Nick!

This was our first time to Bottega Pizzeria Ristorante. Finding the location in the dark was a challenge. Eventually we found it. Food was excellent, very good service. Would definitely come back again.

Outstanding food and great service make Bottega a great place for any meal or any occasion. Food is always consistently outstanding as is the service. Can't go wrong with a night out at Bottega!

The food, AS ALWAYS, was terrific! I ordered the evening's special--clams in a buttery, garlicky, white wine sauce, with red pepper flakes--and my guest order Seafood Tagliatelle. Both dishes were devoured! I will say, tho', be prepared! The red pepper flakes made my dish almost too spicy. The atmosphere is upscale without pretension; the service was paced perfectly. We had a heavy conversation to get through, needed some space, and were still taken care of attentively, not pesty. Tuesday (and Friday, Saturday) live music is featured. Sometimes too loud, sometimes just right; last night was just right! ...and Tuesday is half-price wine night! Enjoying a bottle is very affordable! Do not leave without enjoying Affogato al Caffe for dessert!

Disappointing service….

Poor service! No attention to detail… napkins, silverware …
Food very good, however, and we had been there 1 week prior and had an exceptional experience. Our server, Sydney did her job ,but the rest of the staff was not collaborative. We had to ask a “ bar back” and another server for a plate, napkins, silverware, salt and pepper which arrived as meal was being finished.
The owner himself was “put out” about being asked to light our candle. Had guests in town for a birthday celebration from Minnesota and it was a disappointment for their last dinner out, while in town on vacation. The ambiance is limited to a strip mall, but outdoor seating, pet friendly, and live music under twinkle lights brought us in.

The butternut squash soup was excellent! However, it's not on their regular menu. When booking through OpenTable, we booked an outside seat. Upon arrival we were told no outside seats were available and that, in fact, we were unlikely to get outside seating unless we booked at least 5 days in advance. They said that OpenTable is not accurate as to outside seating at their restaurant. Now, we wanted outside seating for several reasons: first, because of the risk of unvaccinated Covid people; next, because the weather outside was gorgeous; and last, because they have live music outside. We had to sit inside, and they tried to seat us next to a family with two young children, probably unvaccinated. We requested a different table, and they accommodated. However, they must have been short-staffed as the service took way, way, way too long. Very disappointing after our last visit there, which was outside with good service. I don't blame the servers, they appeared to be working hard and were short-staffed.

We celebrated our anniversary and sat in the outdoor patio. The ambience was perfect, the food was wonderful (would highly recommend or lasagna.)
The service was even better. First time there but not our last time it was a very wonderful dinner.

We enjoyed our meal at the Bottega with one exception. The noise was loud, especially the singer they had for entertainment and we sat on the patio. For an Italian styled restaurant, the choice of country western and folk music was really inappropriate. Even if canned, Italian music would have been preferred and a much softer tone would have been well received. The service was great, even as busy as they were and the food outstanding. We have been to the Bottega often and have never ben disappointed with service or food, but would appreciate a change in the entertainment.

The food and service was excellent. I was disappointed we reserved a seat outside and they were not able to accommodate. If they had no tables available it should not have been an option to choose on the app

Always has been our "go to" Italian restaurant when
looking for a great dinner and excellent service. Only criticism this visit would be the size of the dinner portions....definitely seemed smaller than in previous visits, but still a great meal and great service!

This little gem of an Italian restaurant has a seasonal menu as well as their regular menu. I had the butternut squash soup and it was absolutely delicious! Their "red" lasagna was good, though there was zero sauce on top, which was disappointing. They have a decent-sized wine list, as well as cocktails and beer. We ate outside, and on the Saturday night we were there they had live music - a guitarist/singer who was very good. We will be back!

Overall decent experience. Some Happy Hour apps were good some not. Calamari, meatballs great, polenta was tasteless, no Gorgonzola flavor at all, when we ate 1 of the 3 pieces and told the server there was no attempt to contact a manager. Mussels were 6 pieces for $8. Pizza was not cooked very well and limp. The goat cheese appetizer was a ton of cheese and tasted delicious, eggplant parm was OK and good value for $11. Pick winners you’re OK, miss on a few and it could be not so good.

Hello, thank you for dining with us and for providing your feedback. We are sorry to hear we failed to meet your expectations. We would love to learn more about your negative experience with our usually very friendly and accomodating hostesses. Please email us at info@bottegaristorante with more details, so that we may improve where we failed. Making an assumption that our management team is terrible based on one visit, is just unrealistic.

Service outstanding! Food true absolutely delish! Italian hubby says this is the best (red) lasagna he's ever eaten. All the bruschettas are fresh and flavorful. Carbonara, panna prosciutto, white lasagna, bolognese-- all freshly made, all will make your mouth happy!

Note: Friday, Saturday, and Tuesday live music is on the agenda. Quiet conversation isn't really possible so if that's what you're looking for on a particular evening, visit Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Tuesday is music AND half-price bottles of wine so if you're in a party-ish mood, there you go!
