Not for cheap eats or buzzing bar scene, this is for fine food and drink in a classy environment. Chicken Scarpiello was great, for those who like spicy food. REAL mashed potatoes and vegetables cooked to perfection. A nice selection of wines. Choose the comfortable...More

We ordered the pasta with King crab which was awesome! The wife ordered the sea bass special and my daughter order the cavatelle with broccoli rabe! The food was outstanding. This restaurant is a must visit!

Delicious foods! We often come here for dinner. However, we had a party here and we were disappointed by the food for the party. However, when we have dined here privately the food is usually outstanding. Fantastic service and amazing drinks! Beautiful ambiance

We visited Bottagra this past Saturday with friends and had a very nice Italian dinner. We have dined here previously, and find it to be consistent. The menu is good, but not innovative. The menu choices of pasta, veal, chicken, steak and seafood are all...More

Bottagra brings a Modern Mediterranean flare to a traditional Italian restaurant in North Jersey.Chef-Owner Carlo Carbonaro and Robert Vicari have fused their extensive restaurant and culinary expertise together, offering a variety of dishes originating from the northern and southern regions of Italy. The dining rooms are classic New York City exuding a unique feel reminiscent of modern Tuscan villas. Mosaic tiles adorn the walls; rich exquisite draperies in deep bronzes, golds and chocolate colors compliment the upscale feel to this new chic spot. Bottagra's menu features wonderful fresh and flavorful specials as well as a full bar and an extensive wine list. Experience Bottagra!
