Beautiful building, white tablecloths and warm, cozy atmosphere. Blood orange martini was delicious. Appetizers included fried oysters, pizza and shrimp salad, all excellent. Followed up with salad, ravioli, pheasant with winter veggies and a to die for strawberry tart. Very attentive staff and eye catching presentation. Can't wait to go back!

My husband made the reservation as a surprise early Valentine dinner, so I did not have reviews to look at prior. We really enjoyed the entire dining experience. It was within a short walk from the bed and breakfast we stayed in. The parmesan souffle was superb! I could have just eaten that for dinner. However, we ordered other things;... More

Bottega has two different dining areas, there is the cafe, which is the more casual of the two, and the main Bottega (both are in the same building). Both dining areas have the best food and service of anywhere I have been in Birmingham. The fresh bread is to die for and is one of the best parts of the... More

If you are looking beyond BBQ/smoked meats when you visit BHM (and there is great BBQ to be found) - look no further than Bottega. The service from Javier ranks up there with the best I have ever experienced - from his exceptional explanation of the various menu options (really was the best) - how items were prepared - suggestions...

We had the greatest time at Bottega. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation to hangout at the bar and have a drink before dinner. The bartender was very nice and even gave us some suggestion to at to eat. Once we sat down our server was James. He was very knowledgeable of the menu which changed constantly. He was... More

We had a pleasant time, good food, great service. I had the snapper. It was tasty. My wife enjoyed the scallops with lentils. My son loved a tender and tasty NY strip bone-in steak. It looked great. Our waiter was very friendly. His service was excellent. The building and decor was extraordinary. Nice experience overall.

Yum, Yum,Yum! From the delicious appetizers to the luscious desserts. Bottega's dinner definitely didn't disappoint! The parmesan soufflé is like velvet in your mouth. The fish with toasted hazelnuts was spectacular and the chocolate peppermint tartuffo was sweet, delicate and delicious! The historical atmosphere was sophisticated and very conducive to conversation. The staff was attentive to all of your needs... More
