Four of us had another great dinner at Bottega yesterday evening! We were (very efficiently) served by Alex and all dishes were excellent. I asked for spaghetti bolognaise/ragi (which they strangely do not have on the menu), and they quickly made a plan - it...More

Bottega is an old favourite of mine but this visit was disappointing. The oysters were below par and the veal was drowned in napolitana sauce which totally obscured the taste of the meat. My partner's sea food pasta was however excellent and I enjoyed the...More
