Have not been to Vail for several years but returned to find a transformation of the village and other areas. Looked for this old standby as we have many fond memories of bringing our son here to sit at the pizza counter when he was younger. It was just as we remembered. The pizza is awesome and it is entertaining... More

Cozy atmosphere, and good food. This is one of Vail's most reliable spots. It can be crowded. The downstairs tables are noisy, but more festive.A bit overpriced, but it's Vail.

Made reservations on-line for 4 people at 6:30pm. The day of the reservation I called to see if they could accommodate us earlier. Was told I had no reservations. After being switched to 4 or 5 people was told to come in at 5 pm and would have table 38 set up for me. We showed up at 5pm and... More

The owner, Steve, is an alcoholic and very aggressive racist subject, intolerable! He should actually be sued for that. Don't understand how come the place is still open. He truly hates Mexicans, who spend tons of money in his restaurant during high season! Not to mention the food which couldn't be farther from the authentic Italian cuisine. It is a... More

The pizza was excellent, the pasta the same, but I think the service could be better. The wine selection is great, but the staff needs to sell you the wine not just take your order.

We visit La Bottega every year and always enjoy it! Flavorful pastas, excellent salmon, gorgeous salads. We visited on New Year's Eve and although the restaurant was packed we had great service and a wonderful meal. Unique menu!

The service was horrible, but I think it's due to poor management. We sat at the bar that overlooks the kitchen, and were surprised to see food sitting for long periods before being taken to tables and cooks touching the trash can then touching food without washing their hands.

After skiing all day this is the best place to meet (if you are from Mexico) all the who is who are seen here. Not cheap but excellent food, one of the best foie gras I've ever had.Can miss the kobe sandwich.

Hi. We were 12 people for dinner in December 2016. The food was just average. In particular, someone ordered a chicken with mushrooms and veggies. It was prepared without the mushrooms. When the waiter was questioned about it, he stated that they changed cooks and didnt change the menu. The most aggravating issue was paying the bill. It was one... More

We had been there for several times . But today the food was really bad . I order a beef carpaccio (which is what I usually have there ) and on this time it was a thick cut of beef which I couldn't even cut with a beef knife . It was chewy and it tasted funny so I returned... More
