La Bottega


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

This family run restaurant focuses on a genuine food offer together with a wide selection of wines from all over the world. We space from salads and homemade burgers at lunchtime, to the juicy sea-bream fillet and tender beef eye fillet at dinnertime. Our Italian chef also recommends our pasta dishes. We like to close the night with our signature gin&tonic: Nordes gin with camomile and ginger!!

Visited following positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Large portions of good local food well prepared. Make sure you are hungry if you are ordering three courses! The service was friendly and efficient and my steak just right. ( see photo) Would certainly recommend it.

We thought the food and service were excellent and would recommend. We both had pasta dishes which were well prepared and presented and shared a calamari starter which was also delicious.

Sorry, don't have their menu but it is quite extensive. It's not the cheapest, but the service and quality of the food is superb. We went 4 days out 6 and never disappointed... Enjoy... James
