Bottega has a multi-faceted personality. The slightly dressy main dining room is balanced by the slightly raucous café, the other half of the building, with its Pompeii red walls, huge brick wood-fired oven, long bar, and communal table, open from 11:00 A.M. to 10:30 P.M., it is hard not to feel festive here. The café’s patio is the destination for an aperitivo on a pretty day or evening. People c
ome here to meet, mingle, see and be seen, and the incredible food and drinks don’t hurt.
Bustling, packed, filled with the young and the restless as well as our hard-core regulars, the energy of the café revitalizes. The pizzas, salads, pastas, and simple wood-oven roasts keep them coming back.
