This is a quaint little family Italian restaurant. The building needs a serious overhaul and some new decor. The food is very average Italian. Had the meatball sub and it was pretty bland. The prices here are pretty high as well. The service however was fantastic, Susan was very attentive and helpful.

CLEARLY this place is a home-town favorite. I wonder if the decore has even changed since the adored founders (check the big photo at the till) created the restaurant in the 1960s! It's got all the vibe of an east coast neighborhood Italian hangout - loved the Dean Martin music over the sound system. :) We had bruschetta and pizza....two... More

We had spaghetti and eggplant parmigiana. The portions were large, but there wasn't any fresh taste at all. I'm guessing the sauce was straight out of a can.

I love the food here. It is a bit pricey, but the menu is varied, the food is authentic Italian and the portions are large. No wimpy portions here! The family atmosphere of the owners is a welcome each time you walk in the door. I often see someone I know. It has a comfortable atmosphere as well has seating.

If you want authentic Italian food, this is the place to go! The owners of this establishment are actually from Italy, so the recipes and ingredients used are genuinely of Italian origin. Mama (or Catherina, the owner of the restaurant) goes out of her way to ensure guests feel at home. She is more than open to hugs and conversation... More

We were here for New Year's eve and the place was jammed. The service was very good as was the food. I had the veal parmigiana which was a large piece of nicely cooked and seasoned veal at a reasonable price. My wife had the spaghetti Bolognese which she also enjoyed. Prices were quite fair; definitely would revisit.

Mama, as Catherina likes to be called, hugs, smiles, makes you feel so welcome, you will want to come back time and time again. We smile at the thought of going out to eat at La Botte again and again. We know the food will be fantastic, wine selection is super, and all food is fresh fresh fresh. Mama and... More

I went with expectations and they were met. Food was fresh and made to order. Staff was courteous and knowledgeable of the menu as well as the specials. The food came fast and my glass never emptied. Will return!
