Very nice food, and friendly staff, pizza was lovely and the steak and mushroom pasta is very nice too. A little pricey but is expected in the centre of town. The homemade lemonade was lovely too. Would visit again.
Even in February, this was a popular and busy restaurant. The menu is limited, but there’s enough choice to pease everyone. The pasta dishes we had were well presented and tasty. Desserts were equally as good. Service was good, and attentive. Even though there were...people waiting for tables, you were never rushed. Well worth a visit.More
A perfect lunch spot! Cosy , great friendly service and delicious food. Seven of us ate here for under £10 each. Admittedly, 3 people effectively had a starter- the goulash soup (but a very large portion!). We also tried the mushroom ravioli, steak linguine and...pizzas. Couldn’t fault a thing. A few beers and soft drinks, lovely atmosphere too, would recommend.More
We ate in La Botte tonight for the second time in 4 days, as we only wanted something light. The bruschetta and pizzas were both tasty. On Friday last, after a long day's travelling, we left a tip, as the manager who delivered the bill...pointed out that we might like to 'leave something for the staff'. We would have done so anyway. However, tonight I noticed that the menu actually mentioned an automatic service charge - I've noticed this become very frequent in tourist destinations. When the manager came to collect our payment from the table, he again mentioned 'leaving something for the staff'. I pointed to the service charge, and said "Surely that is for the staff?" "No," came the answer, "that is a house charge and doesn't go to the staff." I was flabbergasted. I thought this kind of thing was now in the dark ages. So, basically price your meal, add 12.5%. Then tip. I feel dreadfully sorry for the young lads doing all the work, because I bet most customers assume they will get their share of that 12.5%. I made a point of calling one of the young waiters over and handing him a tip, and telling him it was for him and the other waiter. What a shabby practice, and should I ever be back in Budapest, will certainly not be eating here again.More

First of all we are happy that you found our dishes tasty. Thank you for the kind remarks. We are terribly sorry about this misunderstanding. The 12,5 percent service charge is present in every decent restaurant in Budapest, it is clearly written on the menu...More
So, on a cold Dec night, we are very hungry and dont have a restaurant booked. We find the La Botte and thankfully they have a table for us. The ambience was great. a proper restaurant with tablecloths! Yes, I like table cloths!
Service was...excellent and the food even better. I have spent a lot of time in Italy eating lots of pizzas but the one I had here was right up there with the best. This may have something to do with the traditional pizza oven they have. You see it when you walk in. Always a good sign that.
I highly recommend this place.More
Very well prepared food and extremely nice service. Enough space for groups but also for couples a very nice location. The food was delicious, especially the risotto. The waiter and waitress was fast and extremely nice. 👍👍👍
We had a great meal here on our last night in Budapest. the restaurant is down stairs from street level, very traditional, beautiful decor. the food was great and the service was fab too. the only thing was there was bizarre music on, and it...was very loud. that would be all i would change. But great value for money and the pizza was amazing!More
We ordered a pizza quattro stagioni and a duck breasts with a beetroot risotto. The pizza was delicious, dough was freshly made for sure. The risotto was a bit watery (but not sticky like risotto should be) and duck breast was a bit overcooked (probably...just a minute too long on fire) hence it had a bit firmer, although not rubbery, texture but it wasn’t dry. Portion size is okay. It’s definitely one of those you-need-3-courses-to-full-up restaurants. All in all, I would recommend it and would go there again.
Ps. We drank one 0,25L coca-cola and one 0,75L bottled water which we paid ~4.5€. The pizza was ~9.5€ and the duck was ~16€. In total: ~30€ which was a fair deal.More
