Tonight I went to Bottega with my friends since I read good reviews on it . What a disappointment and the most horrible dining experience of my lifetime as well as for my friends too . I am still shaken up by the rude customer service and the flavorless food . My friend ordered Mushroom Soufflé which was served to... More

If ever a friend calls and ask you to go, say yes! Or plan a trip on your own. From something casual on the cafe side to a little more formal on the dining side. Do yourself a favor, get an orange thing and pizza if you feel like being bad, or beef carpaccio if you are watching your carbs:)... More

Bottega has been a favorite for us to visit when we're in Birmingham for years. We've had so many wonderful dishes it's hard to pick any one favorite, but the braised rabbit I had several years ago was to die for and I would highly recommend if it's on the menu. The atmosphere is splendid and the food is always... More

Borrega is definitely one of the best restaurants in Birmingham AL. The place is classic, the service is very good and the food is outstanding!, from appetizers, main course to desert. Taste is unique!, highly recommended for business or special family occasions.

On our first visit to Bottega, we opted for the cafe side, which was bustling and buzzing with folks in the holiday spirit. Told to expect a 30-minute wait for a table (it was more like 15), we grabbed the one open seat at the bar, where I was quickly served a negroni just as ordered--up and icy cold. Once... More

Went to Bottega and had a lovely time with great friends and good food. Had Tres Picos 2013 wine - very good. Truffle Appetizer, local lettuces, beef carpaccio, and a soufflé for our appetizers and they were all delicious. For entrees - One ordered New York strip, one Pollo Rosso, and two Lamb Porterhouse again cooked, plated to perfection. Dessert... More

We arrived early enough to get two seats at the bar. The restaurant soon became quite crowded with many people ordering drinks while waiting for their tables. We had the pork which was outstanding and the bolognese also wonderful.

I have dined at Bottega several times over many years (I do not live in Birmingham) and I have never had a negative experience. The food is ALWAYS delicious and the service is always top-notch.

Bottega: very good food, but limited menu, with portions on the small side. The restaurant is very well run. 5/5. Recommend.
