veal medallions and mushrooms in a marsala sauce
your choice of pasta in a vodka tomato cream sauce
Everything was fine and everyone enjoyed the meal. The only partial negative I would say is my Penne Russo Pollo could have used more sauce for Flavor. I did not request more but I should have. Flavor and quantity on everyone else’s dishes was excellent.
The best local place around! It’s like having a family dinner at someone’s house!
You can always count on a great meal and good service. Love this place.
Outstanding!!! Everything!!! From service to food must eat
Great ood always! and thoughtful service always!
Excellent dinner. My husband had the fish special and he hadn’t been able to stop talking about how good it was. Tiramisu was fantastic, too.
Great experience and wonderful place to go for a birthday lunch! Server was excellent as was the food and wine. Will definitely go back and will refer to friends!
One of my favorite restaurants.
Consistent and always good experience
Good food and service.
Have been here multiple times and this is one of the most consistently great restaurant experiences.
Everything was perfect
Had to wait a little but once seated our waiter and food were great. We were pleased.
Great food and atmosphere. Will definitely come back again to try their seasonal menu items!
Great menu and delicious food. Our waiter helped with food choices to accommodate a food allergy.
Great spot for true Italian food. Fantastic service delivered throughout by the staff.
Had 7:30 reservation. Arrived at 7:25 and was immediately informed that there was a delay. The restaurant was extremely busy as the house was full. Was offered a glass of wine to pass the time during the delay and was seated by 7:50. This is just gracious service, something that you don't find very often.
The food was terrific throughout our meal. Calamari fritti to start was cooked perfectly and tender. Entrees of fish, beef and pork all delighted.
Gelatti for dessert was terrific.
Can't wait to go back.
Service and food were very good. We have been going there for many years. Alway consistent.
We had a lovely dinner. Food was delicious. Service was good.
Tables are too small. Noise level was really high.
We were able to get in on a last minute reservation on a Saturday night. We sat upstairs and that was about the only bad thing I could say about the place because it was very loud and the sound echoed so it was hard to have a conversation. But the food was very good and as busy as it was the service was excellent.
This is a favorite restaurant for us. I think last night the server may have been covering too many tables which I suspect is a COVID problem. It will not change how we feel about the great food and atmosphere of this restaurant. You should eat here.
Best true Italian food around. Excellent service too
Great place service a bit slow and food seemed a little bit less tasty then the past
Our server Kyle was outstanding very attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly.
The special i had was just ok, it had crab, shrimp in a prosecco cream sauce, but it was unbelievable fishy!
Other guests dinners were great no complaints whatsoever!
Will be back for sure!
Nice, quiet meal with a unique ambience and exceptional food. Best filet ive had in Libertyville. We will be back again and again.
We love Bottaio! Great food and service!! Their pizzas are amazing!
Favorite local independent Italian restaurant. Great friendly service and always great food.
Quality of both food and service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable.
Kyle our waiter was very attentive and kind. Our meal was outstanding!
Wonderful place - 2 floors, we sat upstairs, which is not as nice as the main floor, but Food and Service was outstanding
We sat upstairs which was lovely. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Food was delicious as always. Service was a bit slow, but chalking that up to post-covid staffing difficulties. Highly recommend!
Delicious food and great service! One of our faves in Libertyville
All four of us had entrees off the specials menu and each were absolutely delicious!! Service was outstanding!
Great value and service. They could use some sound baffles to cut down on the loud conversations or seat people further apart! They do need to address this issue in the dining room!
It’s the first time I ate at this restaurant my friend goes there all the time told me is the best Italian food around. The food was outstanding. Great mussels and seafood pasta. Flavors outstanding. Definitely will return
Favorite local Italian restaurant ! Food is always great and service. My go to place that’s not my own restaurant.
Excellent service and outstanding food! Bottaio never disappoints!
Always good service….great menu….food prepared as asked
I’ve never had a bad meal or experience at this fine establishment. Really good authentic Italian dishes with great service.
Fabulous dinner. All of the specials were outstanding!
The food, which is normally good, was terrible. My husband and I ordered two different chicken items and both the chicken was hard, tasteless and barely warm.
