La Botega has become a staple in the lives of many food lovers in Nassau County over the years. The ingredients are always fresh and top quality,and the preparation consistently fine. The atmosphere here is completely charming- cozy without being too close.

Not great, not horrible! I have been to other La Bottega Restaurants and this one is not very good. I would give the service 4*, they were very nice and attentive...but the food quality was like being at a tourist chain restaurant. Pasta was over cooked and the vegetables were scarce in my pasta primavera. I won't be back.

It was a pleasant experience. Nothing too impressive. Server a little slow but overall we enjoyed it. I would go back again

I love the food here. They have the best paninis- the bread is fresh, so are the other ingredients. The balsamic on the side is worth it. Perfect for a casual bite to eat with a friend.

We love la Bottega, but usually order in from them. Tonight we chose to dine at the sister restaurant next door- Cafe Barocco- Mamma Mia were we happy!!! Our server Kevin was great! We started with Zuppa di Pollo- Old-fashioned, home-made Chicken Soup with fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients! My husband is fighting a cold so this was just what the... More

Ordered a panini from La Bottega, and the store was out of the main ingredient. Rather than tell me this, they tried to sneak it by me without me noticing. When I got home, and realized that my BASIL, tomato and mozzarella panini didn't have any basil, I called. The female manager was completely unapologetic, said it was unimportant for... More
