Small restaurant with friendly staff. No printed menu, the dishes are written on the wall. The food was excellent, the wine as well. After nice starters we had the kingklip which was really good. Good wine selection. We will certainly come back!

Four of us had another great dinner at Bottega yesterday evening! We were (very efficiently) served by Alex and all dishes were excellent. I asked for spaghetti bolognaise/ragi (which they strangely do not have on the menu), and they quickly made a plan - it...More
