Perfect place to go on a date. The atmosphere is very beautiful and the service is good. The food is delicious!
One of my favorite restaurants. This is the perfect place to go on a date. The food is extraordinary and the staff is so friendly. Coming here was a great experience!
Its like being in Italy. – Bottega del Vino is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The food there trully tastes like real Italian food from starters to desert. The only problem is some staff member have a bit of attitude. I wish Severino (owner) would check on them in order to provide customers with great experience in all aspects. One time a blond lady server, who basically neglected me and my friend throughout our whole meal, changed the amount we wrote on the cc stuff for tip. We should not even have left her anything, but we did leave an 18% tip...and she changed it. I contacted my credit card and got really frustrated. Did not file a claim since it was a small dollar amount...but it just did not feel right. I love the food and still got here BUT i pay cash now. When you are inside the restaurant, its ambiance takes you to Italy.
ALWAYS A WINNER – My daughter and I stumbled across this wonderful restaurant a year ago after too long of a wait at Sarabeth's for brunch. We were immediately impressed with the service. We also loved the all day panini menu and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. We have been back many times since and have always had a great experience. I personally enjoy the lunch and brunch the best, but the dinner is good too.
what's with the indifferent service? – The restaurants in New York must be spoiled or something because with just a little more effort they could make an average meal exceptional. Nice works, indifferent is repulsive.
I thought the food and wine here was exceptional and so did my companion. It's a noisy tumultuous place and I knew that going in, but I'll say again that the service is where restaurants fall short. Try looking me in the eye and smiling.
Good food.great wine – Hi,i've been the first time at Bottega de vino about 4 mounths ago with my husband,that time i had a very good service and good dinner, our waiter was an italian guy,blue eyes,very kind, his name's mateo,he was just arrived from the same city where the original Bottega is, the city of Verona, and he told us he's proud to work in Bottega, he was an excellent waiter but this time he wasn't there,maybe it was his day off.
The service wasn't the same, the italian guy had something extra, anyway we enjoied drinking a bottle of wine Mateo suggested us, th e amarone, from his city, Verona, the food was good from the antipasto to the gelato and espresso.
Hoping the next time Mateo will be there.

Food was good i have to say, the place, by the way, was too loud, not the kind of place i'd like to go back even if ,again ,the food was really good as i said, too many runners around you but still a pretty long wait to get the check , anyway most important negative thing was the wine list that everyone here keep saying being fabulous, and YES they have a lot of wines to choose from but still, every single bottle is ridicolously OVERPRICED , to get something decent you have to go over $ 100(i mean are you kidding me?) . It was very disappointing , i ended up getting 1 glass of wine ($20) not because i didn't have the money to spend on it , BUT because in the very poor list of Sicilian wines they had the Planeta Syrah for about $ 120 and i am sorry guys but that is a wine that you can easily find in the SUPERMARKET in Italy for about 15 euros so that was absolutely ridicolous and i didn't even bother to keep looking the list. Bottom line is, food is good but wine list is absolutely out of the game, well , at least if you are italian and you are used to eat and drink the real deal, buon appetito.
Great Overall experience – Had a fantastic date here. The overall atmosphere is very relaxed and not loud which was nice because I've been at places where you can't hear yourself think. The waiter was very helpful in assisting us make a wine selection as their binder of choices can be a little overwhelming. We both chose fish for our main course-bass and sole. The waiter fileted (sp?) the fish right at our table and the meal was outstanding. We received great service all night.....definitely recommended to try.
Excellent food - too bad service is slow and my only terrible coat check experience in New York City – It started off nice. We were a reservation for 6 people, but ended up being 7. They moved us to a bigger table without hesitating. You have to be so patient for good food here. Getting the attention of the server to order to and to get the check was a challenge. Still thought, overall, the experience was great. Then, it ended up bad right before walking out the door. The staff could not find my friend's coat. My friend went into the coat room and found it on the floor. Then they couldn't find my coat at all. The room was dark and they tripled up coats on each hanger. It was nearly 11 pm and almost everyone in the restaurant was leaving so the staff retrieved nearly 20 people's coats before they finally found mine. At a nightclub or some bar, I would have expected this and would have even blamed myself for bothering to check my coat, but a place where people plunk down serious money for food and wine?? No way. It's such a shame because I would never go back there out of principle. It was Restaurant Management 101 - easily preventable!
Authentic upscale version of the original Bottega in Verona – This is the most authentic Veronese restaurant you will find in the Big Apple... the food is fantastic, wine selection spectacular!!!! The kitchen worked diligently for weeks before the opening of the restaurant two years ago to replicate the taste of the original Bottega. Yes, the NY times did not give it raving reviews but as my dear friend once told me, "Rome was not built in one day"... so two years later, I am delighted to say that the NY Bottega has impressed my Italian friends as well as many others. And don't forget to ask Maurizio for wine suggestions.
The sad part for me, well, it was always easy to decide to come last minute without a reservation but nowadays, to guarantee myself an amazing Italian feast, I must plan ahead.
And for those of you who will not make it to Verona and want a taste of one of the best restaurants in Italy, well, you can get a taste of it here!
