Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is usually our "go to" Italian restaurant when we visit Blackpool on a family break which is about 2-3 times a year,but after this latest visit we are having a rethink. Me,my wife and granddaughter( who adores this place!) arrived and we're seated without...hassle by our young waiter. For a starter my wife ordered polpette (meatball in a tomato sauce) and I chose bruschetta both were ok but tasted kinda of bland to be honest. For our mains my wife and granddaughter ordered penne pasta and I chose a margharita pizza. The difference from last year's meal to this year's is staggering and so is the taste,quality etc. I have photos from last year's meals to this year's and it's changed bigtime.More

We were going to the Paloma Faith concert at Blackpool opera house last night and so needed a nice restaurant for dinner and a glass of wine. We looked at the reviews and saw that la botega had very good recent reviews so we chanced...it. The restaurant is small and intimate and with a nice feel. The food was very good and the wine was nice without being overly expensive. Total cost mid £50s which was just right for very good food and nice wine. Would definitely recommend 👍More

We went to La Bottega after a friend recommended it. All I can say is Wow! What a find, this place is truly a hidden gem. The greeting on arrival was warm and friendly, the staff and service were lovely. We ordered a lasagna and...pizza to share and they even offered to split it for us. The decor was tasteful and authentic as was the food, the lasagna was the best I’ve ever had, homemade pasta and not too filling as it was delicate. The pizza was lovely too, thin crust and well covered. Prices were very reasonable. The wine, beautiful! If you’re into your wines he has the biggest selection on the back wall. The owner and his staff were all very personable and chatted to the customers, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely return here and have already recommended it.More

First time dining here. Had the seafood carbonara and lobster ravioli. Properly authentic and really tasty. Filled cannoli deserts were awesome. Would highly recommend, very friendly host.

Highly recommend this small Italian. It’s tucked away on the northern part of Abingdon Street. Very friendly and efficient service, good ambiance and plenty of variety on the menu. Found it by chance; will DEFINITELY return!

Arrived with no real expectation. Blackpool is rather run down. Had a very good dinner, very well served by friendly affable staff. What a brilliant find in the middle of Blackpool. Good Italian food, friendly servers and cooks, in a happy city center restaurant. Enjoy...it!More

This is superb, clean, friendly, special little Italian restaurant in the middle of Blackpool. The food and service are excellent with a lovely choice of dishes. The friendly staff cannot do enough for you. My partner and I visit the restaurant every time we go...to Blackpool and we have never been disappointed. I even had my 60th birthday meal at La Bottega last year and we all loved it. Good luck and best wishes to Alex and the Staff.More

Delicious fresh Italian food made by real Italians! Great quality and good prices. Fresh fish, good meats, delicious pasta & pizza (the Italian brothers know a thing or 2 about how to make good pizza & food!) We often recommend La Bottega on Abingdon Street...in Blackpool to our overseas visitors, as well as to friends who come to the theatres or wintergardens/Blackpool Tower events from out of town. Hidden gem! You will not be disappointed…even the desserts are interesting & authentic - always get tempted once we see that amazing sweet trolley, despite being full already! (plenty of choice)More

Sorry, I can't answer that, it depends on the season in Blackpool, how many diners? It's a popular place, I would enquire if I were you, so you're not disappointed. Enjoy!!
