Visited for lunch with my family today. Fabulous food, very friendly and highly recommended. The pasta mains were delicious but our desserts were even better.

Visited this restaurant a few times and never been unhappy with the food or service. La Bottega Delitalia is so much nicer than your chain Italian restaurants. Will keep supporting this very nice restaurant.

One word - Amazing! Such a lovely and romantic place to eat in. Great atmosphere and the food is amazing. Highly recommend for someone going on a date and guess what... you can bring your own wine! My favourite Italian in town.

The food here is absolutely fantastic - beautiful ingredients and very well balanced flavours. The restaurant itselt is unpretentious, as are its prices. The spaghetti puttanesca was probably the best pasta I've ever had.
