We dined at Bottega with friends to celebrate their wedding anniversary. It is a beautiful location with limited parking. You will probably need to use valet parking. We began our evening with drinks at the bar and a server took our unfinished drinks to our...More

Had a great time here for lunch at the cafe. The cheese plate was great and the pizza was awesome. Definitely will return.

Botegga Restaurant is the "upscale" section of the restaurant (Botegga Café is the more casual side). I really enjoy the dining experience at Bottega Restaurant - the atmosphere is like a restaurant you'd find in Manhattan. They've recently redecorated - lighter paint colors and marble....More
