This cosy restaurant caught our attention when we were passing by so we thought we should give it a try. The kitchen was closing at 4pm so we basically had 5 minutes to go through the menu and choose our dishes. They could have just told us when we walked in... We were served in 10-15 minutes and you could... More

If you want good Italian food, you really need to go here! The food is fresh and very tasty. It's a nice and cosy restaurant, and the wines are delicious.

I considered this restaurant one of the best italian restaurant in London till I've been to have a dinner for my bday and I got the gnocchi with mushrooms sauce (their best dish/sauce) that was cold so after few mins my gnocchi wasn't good to eat anymore. Besides, I was sitting downstairs, near the kitchen, I could hear an italian... More

Dear Customer, My deepest apologies on behalf of all Bottega staff, I am sure your favourite plate could have been changed if you mentioned its temperature to the staff on the evening, they would be obliged to change it. However for the staff's bantering, I cannot apologise enough for it, and the right measures have been taken. lastly, thank you... More

We reserved a table at the restaurant a while ago, for a birthday meal. In advance, I tried to contact the restaurant via the email address on their website as I have a good intolerance and wanted to make sure this could be accommodated. I did not receive a reply. Instead, I looked at the menu on their website to... More

This is 100% my favourite restaurant in London. After visiting several times with family and friends, I took my partner here for an anniversary dinner. As always the menu offered a huge amount of choice, the staff were friendly and the ambiance was lovely and chilled. One word of warning, the portions are huge so come with an appetite Seriously,...

This place certainly has a buzz to it and it's advisable to book because it's always busy. A lady comes round and explains the different pastas they serve, which come in generous portions. My veal escalope was OK - nothing more - while the salt cod my friend had was dreadful and in need of longer hydration. Good wine list,... More

Visited with friends on a recommendation. Good buzy atmosphere. Starter good, main pasta dish had poor quality meat and was ridiculously large. We were told the portions were generous but I was not expecting such an enormous bowl full, it would have fed two if not more. Other mains not like this.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
