My wife and I went to Bottega after an afternoon cabaret performance on 22nd Street. The food was quite good but the service was a bit chaotic.

Enjoyed eating here very much. Not a large menu, which I always see as a plus, but a good choice of some great Italian classics. The atmosphere is loud and friendly with the tables being set very close together. Prices are reasonable for the city.
