The ambiance and outdoor dining are comfortable and delightful. The food was serviceable at best, especially for the price point. The dessert though was delicious!

Great setting for covid times. Covered enough to provide some protection but definitely open around all three sides to allow air flow. Beautiful garden and ambiance We had a lovely dinner with family. Pastas were better than the steak. Our server was very attentive and everyone sang happy birthday to our daughter. Will definitely be back.

Service was amazing. The staff was friendly and attentive, the manger went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed since we were celebrating my friend’s birthday, and the atmosphere was excellent. We had two of the special cocktails, can’t remember the name, and were delicious. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same thing about the food. We started off with the truffle burrata, which was good but came with no crackers or any bread, which was odd. We asked the waiter for bread, and it was fine. She got the cacio e Pepe, no complaints there. I got the octopus and it was horrible. Presentation was awful, came with a slice of bread at the bottom and eggplant. Sounds way better than it tasted. It was awful really. I ate the octopus because I was hungry, but it wasn’t very tender and the eggplant was disgusting. I was honestly shocked. However, the dessert save the night because it was delicious. Thank you Bottino, but we won’t be coming back.

This is my new favorite place. I come here once or twice a week. They do everything right, and on top of it all they have a heated garden.

I went for my birthday and although service was great I'm was not so pleased with my pasta dish. It was pretty bland in comparison to our appetizer which was delicious and flavorful. Also they gave me and my 2 guests spoons and brought out a delicious Tiramisu which we all loved. The only thing is we didn't order it and it was on our bill at the end of the evening. It would have been nice if they asked us did we want dessert this way we would have been aware that it wasn't complimentary.

Subdued quarantine vibe. Excellent service. Quiet patio with more than adequate social distancing. I was impresses with the COVID-19 precautions (temp. taking, and address request for contact tracing if required, consistent masking by staff and patrons). While patio is covered and under heaters, it is winter... and cold. Be mindful when ordering so not to be disappointed if food gets cold quickly. Food was good and served promptly. My steak salad was just what I was craving. I will go back.

Terrific food and service. Needs better outdoor heating.

Thanks for the review -- much appreciated! Yes, it is tricky trying to heat the outdoors in NYC in January. We want to keep the space as open as we can -- and as safe as possible --and one can only do so much since the city does not allow large propane heaters used in backyards. We do are trying and hope you will revisit on a warmer winter night! thanks again!

Food nice, date not so much.
Went for lunch and sat outside on the patio which had heaters near each table. Delicious chicken salad with dill and pistachios. I'd stop in again, but with someone else. : )

Fantastic food and service in trying times. I have eaten here twice over the last few weeks and had a wonderful experience. We dined in the outdoor area and enjoyed every mouthful. Each course was delicious.The team even overheard me wishing my brother a happy birthday (we didnt make a big deal as they have enough to contend with)and surprised our table with a complementary glass of bubbly and a candle on a plate (covid friendly) which was such a nice touch. Safety is taken seriously and on arrival your temperature and address is taken. Thanks to the Bottino team. Can't wait to return.

We went there to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful time. I have a lot of food allergies and they went above and beyond to make sure my dish was just perfect. The tables were very spread out where we sat. We felt very safe dining there. All of our dishes were excellent. The Bread Pudding is the best one I have ever had. We will not hesitate to go back next month when we will be in NYC again.

Our server was a perfect balance of professional and personal. We were well taken care of! The garden was charming and kept warm on a cold night. The food was delicious and my only complaint was that they ran out of desserts the night before and didn't correct it in time for dinnertime the next night.

My group had an incredible experience at Bottino. The staff were attentive, thoughtful, and courteous. I was celebrating getting into medical school and they went the extra mile to make it special. The food was delicious- we ordered the burrata (a must), the octopus, and several pasta dishes, none disappointed. The outdoor garden is gorgeous and has a perfect cozy atmosphere that one would seek out in winters outside of COVID times. Could not recommend this restaurant more highly.

A little bit pricey, but we also ordered a ton of cocktails LOL

Ambiance is unmatched. When we sat in their garden, it was like we were transported to an alternate reality where COVID doesn't exist. Heat-lamps in a beautiful outdoor space. Food was excellent too
