Ordered take-out from this family-owned spot. The timing of the pizza being done before everything else was finished needs to be worked on. This caused the pie to dry out a little. But the flavor is still tasty and the sweet sauce that everyone talks about is evident. The wings are good and the desserts are to die for. The... More

We are locals and our families have been enjoying Bottisti family-owned pizza and steak sandwiches there for 50 years or more. Definitely the best around. They make their own sauce ans their sausage is worth the try. Crust is thin but thick enough to sink your teeth into.Their steak sandwiches are a specialty that you won't soon forget. They have...

We "found" this restaurant while looking for another. It's located in a neighborhood, not downtown or on some busy street. It's a pizza restaurant so was not expecting too much but it was late & I just wanted to eat already. We stopped in last Wednesday around 8:30 pm. There was only one other table filled. My friend & I... More

Get their Hot Grinders. They are great. The bread is perfect and crispy. They even hold up the next day. Can't beat it.

The Pizza at Bottistis is amazing. The best in Amsterdam. When you visit Amsterdam this is a must stop. All their Italian Dishes are home made and flavorful. Gary and his staff are friendly and treat you like your family.

My family has been getting pizzas and Italian dinners from Bottisti's (which has been owned by the same family) for over 55 years. Their recipes have been handed down from generation to generation. They bottle and sell their own sauce that rivals homemade. My college roommates in Buffalo looked forward to my trips home because I would fill the back... More

I'm hoping to get back to Amsterdam so I can get their pizza. There truly is nothing that compares to it. I've been all over the US and several places in the orient but nothing compares to their pizza. It's a shame they haven't marketed their pizza on a grand scale across the US because I believe they would end... More

We get pizza here every Friday and sometimes more. They have a unique sauce that's very addicting. We always order the large pan pizza it's the rectangular one and it's amazing i believe this style must have more sauce or something because it taste different than the rounds ones. Give a large pan pizza a shot you will not be... More

When calling for take out, the wait time is only half as long as it takes to be taken care of for a sit in. The food is about a 7 out of 10.
