29th January 2017. Dinner. In the Old Town. High heavily beamed ceiling. Tables well spaced. Quite bright lighting, so not such an intimate atmosphere. Very nice waitress - who was about to go to Rome for a week to represent Estonia in Floorball (not Football - Floorball). This was the best meal of our holiday in Tallinn. A nice glass of Pinot Grigio and focaccia bread with lovely olive oil and balsamic vinegar to begin with. Starter (shared between the 2 of us) - Prawn tails with a tomato and chilli sauce - wow, delicious. Mains - we both had the lamb cutlets with chilli and garlic potato wedges with rosemary, and grilled marinated veg. Again delicious. Fab bottle of (expensive) red - Barbera d"Alba Zio Nanda Rivera 2012 - beautiful and perfect with the lamb. Pudds - creme brulee - cooked perfectly, and tiramisu - v good. Excellent meal and great service from our Floorball waitress.

A kind of a mixture of home-made tastes, mother’s or grandmother’s traditions and a unique elegance often offers in Italy the most fascinating lunch or dinner experience. That’s exactly what La Bottega is offering – a chance to enjoy the chef’s Nicolo Tanda authentic dishes prepared from the recipe collection by his mother from Sardinia. By eating these foods is easy to understand that mother’s passion for food was the one what brought Nicolo to cooking

They have very good sardinian food and nice italian wines for decent prices. I had their t-bone steak several times, it is very good. Beautiful modern interior in an old medieval building in the old town of Tallinn. This restaurant is one of seven restaurants in Tallinn which is recommended in the book "Where Chefs Eat". I guess that tells it all, very very nice food and atmosphere.

Great place in the center of Tallinn. You can enjoy the beautiful interior and delicious menu - mostly Italian cuisine. Prices are quite reasonable. There is the only disadvantage - the staff is not quite polite. I didn't feel comfortable.
