Great place for reasonably priced, good Italian food in the hot High Line neighborhood. I love it because it's one of the few genuinely quiet restaurants in New York, and they have a lovely outdoor dining area in the summer and glass/enclosed patio in the winter. It's my go-to place in this neighborhood.

Great ambiance ok food.
I’ve been going to Bottino for over 17 years. The ambiance is excellent especially the garden. The food is just so so. I always want the food to be better but it rarely is. Still worth a trip for the ambiance especially in summer.

After an afternoon of seeing exhibitions at Chelsea galleries we decided to relax and have a meal and enjoy time to reflect on the day. Bottino is a solid restaurant that always guarantees delicious food, great ambiance and impeccable service. We were not disappointed.

Always a good bet for an excellent meal in a buzzy room.... but the service was all over the place. The waiters seem unable (forbidden?) to clear plates off the table (our waitress came over and said "I see you are finished. I'll have someone clear for you", and walked off. It was another 5 minutes before someone came to clear). We had to ask twice for bread. The group at the table next to us told (the same waitress) that their wine glasses were dirty and they waited awhile until someone else (maybe the manager or sommelier) came over with clean glasses.. by then their main courses were already on the table. (I am aware of this because they expressed their displeasure loud enough to be heard). This is such an institution and it's not that hard to step up the game.

We frequent Bottino all the time and love it. The only thing is that they bring out the courses too fast so you may want to ask them to slow it down a bit. Otherwise the food and service are great and the prices are reasonable too.

Fantastic staff, friendly, approachable, professional and efficient, however the food was a poor imitation of Italian food, sloppy and poorly presented and un interesting. The wine selection was also very bland. Not a great night.

Great experience at Bottino. Had a show at the Mckittrick hotel and had to grab a quick bite prior .... David the bartender who wore Many hats greeted us new customers with the warmest welcome, rightfully suggested apps and entrees and served our party in an Expeditious fashion so we didn’t miss our show ! Great energy all around Bottino ! Def returning again !

Used to like but food was honestly terrible to blah. Ordered bruschetta, soup, tuna tartare and the bolognese. Soup and pasta edible and some
Flavor but forgettable. Sad this restaurant has gone so downhill.

Great little spot with delicious selections of food. Everything we ordered was prepared and cooked perfectly. The antipasto to start was a very good choice. Lamb cola, pasta and fish were enjoyed by all for entrees. Dessert was decadent. Definitely will be going back!

Suggestion: add some acoustical panels on the ceiling of the main dining room. It will help.

based on the reputation, I expected something a little more over the top, but our experience of Bottino was refreshingly down to earth. Fairly basic Italian menu--but the food itself was terrific. Lasagna was as good as I've had. We went on a very cold Tuesday night--the crowd was moderate, the atmosphere and service extremely warm. For the overall quality of the experience, the price is very reasonable--I highly recommend it.

Bottino IS where New York eats. The REAL New York. While the people who dine at Bottino span a broad spectrum of demographics, they all seem to resemble the global-minded New Yorker with whom I identify. The food, the energy, the service, the cocktails, the environment and of course the people flowing in and out of this time-tested-treasure are nothing short of delicious in every way.
