As soon as you walk in you feel like you have arrived somewhere special. We were there right before the holidays and had the pleasure of sitting next to what must of been a regular although he looked like a celebrity of some kind an italian looking New York actor. He was eating the most incredible dishes and he recommended to us what to order the mussels are incredible, and be sure not to induldge on the bread it is addictive tasty, and the pasta fagioli soup just like in Italy homemade the best. Be sure to save room for dessert, the cannollis are mouth watering. We will return and hopefully the New York Actor lookalike is there again.

I love this place. We have been quite a few times. The food is rather sublime. Service is attentive, without being intrusive. I highly recommend it.

Botte is a fantastic place with an innovative menu. I will definitely come back again to try other dishes! They even offer a six course seasonal tasting menu. My friends and I were able to leave that night feeling satisfied and ready to dance the night away!

I came here for dinner and got pasta with vegetables, I know sounds boring but it was amazing. I didn't think that could be so delicious. The interior was amazing and the wine list was fantastic. Prices are a bit high but worth it.

So while everyone else seemed to be on a romatic date here- I came with my parents since they were in town and my mom had wanted to come here. I got an odd dish- I felt like something light, so I got the risotto that had fig and some balsamic in it. It was amazing!!! Like nothing I've ever tasted before. I love when I take a chance and it works out!

The food is very good, the service is excellent, the decor is okay. But serious wine folks will be disappointed to learn that they can't bring their own wine...period. The wine list is loaded with very young, mostly over-priced bottles.
