I have dined at Bottega several times over many years (I do not live in Birmingham) and I have never had a negative experience. The food is ALWAYS delicious and the service is always top-notch.

Bottega: very good food, but limited menu, with portions on the small side. The restaurant is very well run. 5/5. Recommend.

Botegga is the favorite Saturday Lunch Spot in Birmingham for me and my husband. Sitting outside or inside the atmosphere is bustling to perfection. Fun to watch people and enjoy the beauty of the most professional wait staff in town, Frank Stitt's food is up to his reputation. Try the mac and cheese and you will never like any other!

The food here is amazing! They have wood fired pizzas, with fresh, local toppings, that are delicious. The burger is out of this world. I've had a number of other entrees that are really great. The cocktails are wonderful. Try the limoncello tini. They make their own limoncello!! Great for groups, date or friends.

This is a great place. The food and service was over the top. I had the fish dish with some appetizers. They were both very good.

Fun experience. For a city that is not huge, they have a lot of fabulous restaurants! Don't miss the soufflé if you eat here! Waiters were top notch!

Greeted the table in a timely manner and brought us drinks from the bar. Ordered a couple of bottles of wine too. Started off with parmesan souffle and Beef Carpaccio. Outstanding to... More

When the weather's nice, there are few better spots in Birmingham than the patio at Bottega Cafe. I enjoy the more quaint cousin of Bottega, the Cafe, than the traditional Bottega Restaurant. There is an awesome bar with hipster bartenders and bespoke drink recipes. The flatbreads/ pizzas are great appetizers, which we enjoyed immensely. The place is usually very crowded... More
