Bottega, the last of the 3 Frank Stitt establishments I have reviewed, is something of a tour de force. While the dinner menu is wonderful, lunch at Bottega is the place to see and be seen. The al fresco dining out front feels very much...More

We've eaten here on several occasions and always had a great meal...menu limited specializing in quality not quantity, which is a good thing. However, this must have been a bad night for the kitchen; food served undercooked and not the quality we have come to...More

Want to meet someone special for dinner and drinks? I actually met my cousin (twice), and it was a wonderful evening both times! Try to score a table in the courtyard of the Café side! Wonderful memories! Food and wine selection outstanding!

No they don't
Is this restaurant easy to walk into and around? My mother-in-law is 86 and has challenges with stairs or uneven surfaces. She enjoys eating outside and I would like to know if this would be a good place to bring her. We enjoy the Highland Bar and Grill but it is full for the dates we will are available.
