I love a good Italian restaurant. Having a wife who is half Italian and a mother-in-law of 100% Italian origin, and a son who is a great at Italian cuisine, I am very spoiled. I almost never order ravioli in a restaurant because ravioli is almost never well made, in my estimate. I do order lasagna, however. I did at... More

The surprise was the quality of the food we had for dinner! Frankly, when I heard we were meeting dear friends for dinner here, I was dismayed. My last experience dining here was a business luncheon & my eggplant was so bad I sent it back & declined to order anything to replace it. I had not returned for several... More

I go to Bottaio on a regular basis. The food, service, and atmosphere all are consistently excellent. You are always greeted quickly and politely upon arrival. It is a good idea to have a reservation later in the week Thursday-Saturday. There are 6-8 seats at the bar along with a couple small high boy tables in the bar area as... More

Always top quality food and service. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to make dining a real pleasure. The specials menu changes often enough to make for repeat visits worthwhile.

Great food. Great staff. Really enjoyed our dinner and cocktails. We sat upstairs which was really nice. We were not rushed at all and were able to catch up with our friends.

What a great spot for a subdued New Year's Eve dinner. The food was delicious, the server, John, was sporting a wooden bow tie and was very friendly and knowledgeable, the atmosphere was vibrant but not noisy. One of our party needed gluten-free food and John's answer was always "no problem". Just what we needed to hear! John recommended the... More

Great service. Great quality of food. This place made me feel like I was in Little Italy in Chicago. Definitely felt at home. One of the best places to eat in Libertyville.
