For several reasons, I travel to Uruguay often and I never miss the occasion of visiting La Bottega and try their genuine and creative menu. All the ingredients are 100% Italian, and not just that -- they are very jealous of the brands they import and sell to the public.

Daniel Di Landro, owner of the restaurant, is fully dedicated to his business and besides making you feel at home, he's also the chef. He travels on a regular basis to Italy looking for new ideas, new flavors, new ingredients and options so when you travel to Montevideo, your mouth is in the heart of Italy.

I dare you to try their amazing prosciutto paninis, for instance - there's no other prosciutto panini in the world that tastes like that out of Italy... believe me! Their Tagliatelle Nero di Sepia with shrimps is absolutely beyond compare... And their Panna Cotta is unique - the blend of ingredients is PERFECT!

The restaurant is cozy and a constant option for many well known people in the Uruguayan culture, sports and politics. You shouldn't be surprised to find former Presidents having a Sunday lunch with their family, or famous soccer players celebrating with friends, or local rock stars visiting or buying cool merchandise that is exclusively sold at La Bottega.

Want to feel like in Italy but in Montevideo? Want to try the best Italian cuisine in town? This is the best place where to go! A must!

La bottega offers a good option of italian products (olive oil, sausages, aceto, etc....) and you can eat right there.

You have to have time because everything is prepared in the moment.

Spaghetti al funghi porcini is really good!
