The restaurant was busy and a bit noisy but the food was fair enough to good. There were some junior servers who seemed a little confused but perhaps they were new. I would go there again but the Turkish place along the street would be my first choice.

Food took quite a time to come and was ok but nothing special. We had been recommended by a friend so maybe we have higher standards.

Very noisy and tables close together. Food average service average nothing to write home about. Had the Scaloppine Marsala bit wishie washie on the flavour and the veges were cold. I hate it when the servers don't bring all the dishes out at the same time

Sunday night; end of a horrible week and we really, really wanted pizza. We hadn't originally intended to try Botticelli -- but I'm glad we did. Even though it was late and they were probably near closing time, the service was friendly and helpful and our pizzas were just what the doctor ordered. Looking at the food on other diners'... More

A cosy and buzzy neighbourhood restaurant. Nice to be somewhere busy on a wintery Wednesday night in Takapuna. Skip the pizza and choose the exquisite homemade pasta! I had the Pansotti (like a ravioli) stuffed with sweet pumpkin and ricotta and a delicious red pepper sauce which made the dish. My date chose the seafood pizza, which was okay, a... More

Amazing food + very friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely eat here again. Mentioned that we were on a time constraint and they ensured that everything was brought out to us as quickly as possible. Great service overall.

If I lived here, I would be here every week. The homemade ravioli was fantastic. Garlic bread and salad was a nice touch for the meal. Small and friendly. The owner/ hostess was a delight. Too bad I live in Florida.

A small restaurant with a great vibe. I don't understand the complaints about the noise. It's small, & busy ! Fantastic lively atmosphere. Great food. Passionate waitress. Loved it. And BYO wine so kept the cost down too.
