A kind of a mixture of home-made tastes, mother’s or grandmother’s traditions and a unique elegance often offers in Italy the most fascinating lunch or dinner experience. That’s exactly what La Bottega is offering – a chance to enjoy the chef’s Nicolo Tanda authentic dishes prepared from the recipe collection by his mother from Sardinia. By eating these foods is...

They have very good sardinian food and nice italian wines for decent prices. I had their t-bone steak several times, it is very good. Beautiful modern interior in an old medieval building in the old town of Tallinn. This restaurant is one of seven restaurants in Tallinn which is recommended in the book "Where Chefs Eat". I guess that tells... More

Great place in the center of Tallinn. You can enjoy the beautiful interior and delicious menu - mostly Italian cuisine. Prices are quite reasonable. There is the only disadvantage - the staff is not quite polite. I didn't feel comfortable.

La Bottega is one of the better authentic Italian restaurants in town. Food is never a disappointment and the service is nice and friendly. Wine list is somewhat simple and lacks some interesting small/medium size producer products, though its not a bad wine card by any means. Definitely recommending.

I was asking how long time I have to wait to have a table and I was answered really unpolite and uneducated. I hope because they don't speak english.

We were here for the second time. The food in our group divided a bit the opinions. Meat and fish were excellent but I found ravioli just average. Not very tasteful. Staff and service was superb. It took some time but we had no hurry. We had a very enjoyable evening.

Would you trust a restaurant in medieval Tallinn to serve contemporary Italian food? Well, this one does and supplements with an impressing selection of great Italian wines. Enter the ancient decorated double door to enjoy the tall hallroom , still having the medieval kitchen/fireplace in one corner. Service was on-the-spot and very helpful, even if not a trained professional waiter.... More

Fantastic food and great services! The lamb was absolutely amazing. They also serv really good wines together with each dish. Really recommending this place, you almost miss the place when you walk by but it's worth to find this place for both lunch and dinner.
