What can I say about this place? It's a hidden gem!

I wandered in one day to check out the imported Italian goods in the window. Inside there's an old-school counter with specials on a white board and a menu with a medley of traditional Italian items (some more Americanized than others).

I saw that ziti carbonara was an option, and tortellini as well... so I asked for tortellini carbonara and they told me it would be no problem since it's made to order.

AMAZING.

Probably one of the best carbonara's I've ever had. Ever.

I have since been in the area to go to other places and opted instead to go to Bottega. It's too good to pass up.

My girlfriend agrees. She is a vegetarian and happily peruses a number of veggie-friendly options.

Oh, and did I mention that it's reasonable? Yeah, it really is. It's as cheap as Olive Garden but it's actually good Italian food!

And the selection of imported goods - albeit small - provide a nice secondary service for those of you that might be done eating but want to try it at home.

Bottega is a quaint little eatery with a variety of different pastas and sauces for one to mix and mingle. The prices usually range from $5-10 depending on what is ordered. There are also hot meals that are served daily. You can make you own salad with a variety of deli ingredients to add. They also serve sandwiches. One of the most popular dishes by far is the spaghetti carbonara which is tasty. There are 2 locations on Harvard Street in Brookline. Great value and food right in the heart of Brookline. Nice intimate setting good for first dates on a budget or lunch.

Pros: great value, variety, tasty food

Cons: small seating area, parking

After hearing so much about Bottega my standards were obviously quite high. But I don't think that's why I was disappointed. The food is below average, especially since the owners claim to be Italian. They obviously have never had good Italian food. The pasta is overcooked and the sauces are way too sugary. In additon, the pasta has not been cooked in water containing enough salt. However, the interior is cute and cozy as everyone sits next to eachother on long benches.
