The restaurant started out many years ago in a store front and has continued to expand by taking over the neighboring stores. So, there is now 4 or 5 different rooms to dine in, keeping a small bistro feel. the food is commensurate with lots of choices, especially the ones made in the open oven in one of the rooms.

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Vail. The food is always good. However, I must say that this year, the veal chop Milanese was a little over cooked and dry. I'm still giving a 5 rating because I chose this dish even though the waiter described it as being pan fried. My wife's veal ossa buco was... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at La Bottega in Vail for the first time earlier in March. We had a great experience. We had called at the last minute and the hostess was able to squeeze us in at a high top table across from the counter between the two main rooms downstairs. A great people... More

Ameritalian' restaurant offering reasonable value - for Vail. Decent food, good service, nice atmosphere. Good pasta and pizza dishes. If you are looking for a fine dining, romantic Italian dinner, then this place is not your best choice. But it is a good option for families with kids and large groups.

It was very disappointing. We come every year and this was the first time we feel bad at this restaurant. The service was awful. They bringed the food late and not every plate at the same time. The waiter was very rude, he took the plates of the ones who had finished when the others were still eating. He was... More

We arrived on the Friday of Presidents weekend which was our last night in Vail having failed to secure a reservation at a number of other places. We were a party of 5 including our 7 year old daughter but despite our size and lack of a booking we were made to feel very welcome and quickly found a table... More

I have eaten at La Bottega several times since it opened. The food is consistently great - fresh ingredients prepared to order - and the prices are reasonable for a nice dining experience in Vail. I have only ever ordered pasta and salad in the past but tried a small stagione pizza as an appetizer this time as well. All... More

We were stuck in an upstairs room that was way too hot. No atmosphere at all. Our food was most bland and in one case actually unappetizing. Plates cleared the minute they were finished. Rushed things along and the topper was it was pretty expensive. Way too expensive for what was offered. We had several wonderful meals in vail but... More

Staff were very pleasant and efficient . Portions were modest . Prices were high. We went to an Italian restaurant to enjoy a Pasta starter and a main course. The only way to do this was to order two main courses and one main pasta and have two plates for our starter AND be charged $ 8 extra . This... More

So wanted this to be better. Maybe an off night but everyone at our table of 8 rated their food and service "less than ordinary". We know that a larger party is not always easy on an establishment, but we try to be generous and considerate as patrons. That said, five of us had food that was overcooked (steak), oily... More
