Reviews for Bottega Cafe

Enjoyed a really nice dinner here while staying overnight in Birmingham. The service was amazing. The food was delicious. We had a couple pizzas, the salmon, and then the veggie polenta. Only thing I didn't love - the orzo/veggie side that was served with the salmon was cold, like very cold. I don't know if this was intentional or not. It seemed odd, and I would have preferred it hot. The fish was very nice though.

Great evening of food, service, and charm of the Bottega building. Started with the hummus platter. The hummus was an unusual but delish preparation. It came with crudite and bread that we swooned over! Next were salads. Tasted farmer market fresh and also very good. Next was chicken piccata and a vegetarian spaghetti. Both were flavor bombs. As a mostly vegetarian, I was unexpectedly blown away by this spaghetti flavor. The best I have ever had. As an avid cook, i hope to full review
I haven’t been to Bottega in 15 years, and am SO glad we went back. I took my 20 yo daughter very early on a Friday night (4:00). It kills me that I don’t remember our server’s name. He was SUPERB. There were only a few other seated tables, and our waiter was 100% attentive without hovering over us. The food was nearly all superb. We had a delicious antipasti platter, I had the NY strip (perfect on the inside and seared on the outside, just like I like it), and my full review
