Huge menu but food mediocre at best and ridiculously expensive, place needs serious updating. Staff could be friendlier and more helpful.

Not as good as I'd hoped. For the price, I was expecting more flavor. I ordered the crab ravioli special. It was flavorless, except for the fishiness of the crab. The cheese on top had melted and hardened into this rubbery mess. Waitress neglected to keep water glasses filled, and after all the salt I had to add to my... More

We made a reservation on Open Table, arrived on time, and was seated in the bar area. The manager suggested that if we book through OT again, we should specify that we would like to be seated in the dining room. Not having ever been there before, we didn't know there were seating choices to be made. We were seated... More

My hubby and I frequent Botto's often. We've been two times this past month, Friday nights, patio service. It has been terrible. Both nights, service was EXTREMELY slow and the hostess seemed overwhelmed. The first night the manager walked around and apologized to everyone seated around us, including us, for the slow service. Ok perhaps an off night, someone called... More

Stopped in on the recommendation of a friend. Meh. The service is sloooooooow. The hostess stood at a nearby table and chatted with friends for most of my visit, while I sat without promised bread, and a very average dinner salad that took 15 minutes to arrive. The atmosphere is that of a loud sports bar. The food is, well,... More

Met with four colleagues for dinner here. Sausage is what is featured on the menu. Food was very good. There are other Italian places in Chicago (where I'm from) that I like better, but this was very good. The red gravy is authentic and flavorful. Bread was fresh and wine selection was good. I'd come back if in the area... More

This restaurant has two dining styles: a formal one with an expensive selection and a bar area with a smaller and moderately priced menu. I had lunch in the bar area. Service was efficient and friendly.

Traveling on business I stumbled onto Botto's. Started with a Caesar salad with anchovies that was excellent. I then enjoyed probably the best Eggplant Parmesan that I've had since what my mom made. Not many places make it without breading. Absolutely awesome!

If you live near Swedesboro, NJ you know Botto's Restaurant. [ Look in your local grocery store for their sausage brand.] This family owned restaurant has been around for a long time and they keep up with the times. Botto's comfortable and slightly upscale at the same time. The food is great, the drinks are great and they have bands... More
