What an amazing gem. All of the European atmosphere, tastes and smells! They have EVERYTHING! Fine wine by the glass or bottle, brews & ciders. Menu is killer, if you want a light fair or a meal... take some in house made Gelato, pasta, sauces and soups! My son and I have made this a bi-weekly treat. Oh yeah...the service is very attentive and warm ☆☆☆☆☆Vegetarian options: Veggie pastas


After reading the reviews, I thought I would be enjoying authentic Italian cuisine. Sadly, the food was disappointing. The Gorgonzola Cheesecake appetizer was light and fluffy, but devoid of any Gorgonzola flavor. The Olive plate was good. The Penne Vodka was boring. They got the crushed red pepper right. Maybe the tomato, garlic and basil were enjoying a long weekend elsewhere. The Frutti di Mare was equally uninspired. Where was the wine and garlic? I don’t think I’ve ever eaten at an Italian restaurant that didn’t use some measure of garlic. In short, the food was uninspired. And for those who think this restaurant is comparable to the North End, Little Italy or Italy itself, I say the food at the O Garden would be closer to those places than the dining experience at Bottega.


What a great find. This place is amazing. The food is so very good. The vodka pasta is to die for. Everything we got was just great. The gorgonzola cheese cake appetizer is a must. So many food options will keep you coming back for more. If you like lemonade you must try theirs which is made to order

This place is wonderful… The ambiance feels like the comfort of a good home. The staff are warm and welcoming. My waiter was very knowledgeable of the selection of wine I was interested in. He was also very keen on suggesting meals he thought we’d like based off of our short conversations about the types of food we liked. I absolutely loved it! The Food was delicious and the overall experience was excellent! Thank you so much La Bottega Cafe for such a delightful experience. We’ll be back soon.

I don’t know how we haven’t been here before. Best Italian food in Vancouver. We had the soup, the Gorgonzola cheesecake YUM, the steak mushroom soup YUM, 2 kids meals both amazing, and the lasagna. We will be back.


We were driving from Portland, OR, to Seattle, and discovered this restaurant for dinner. The street on which it is located is adorable. We arrived at the restaurant late afternoon/ early evening on a Saturday and were able to be seated. The restaurant filled up quickly after we'd been seated. The Caesar salad was delicious, and we both had pasta that we loved. Service was also great.


Wonderful food. This is a combo deli and restaurant. Really kind of a cool setup. Service is great. Fun crowd. We had the cheesecake havarti cheese, not the sugar desert cake. Mushroom and steak soup and a huge Caesar salad. Fantastic.

Today was our first time at La Bottega and it will definitely not be our last! We live in Gresham and love to find places to eat in nearby Vancouver. La Bottega is such an inviting place with dining inside or out, and over 400 bottles of wine and great food options. I so appreciate having gluten free pasta options. Our server, Chia, was outstanding!

Friendly staff, incredible service and a great ambiance. The food is top notch every time. I've never been disappointed and they have so many thing to take home and try in your own kitchen!

Cute spot to grab lunch or dinner by yourself or with loved ones. They have a nice amount of deli style market place selection of cheeses, olives, sweets and sandwiches. I got an antipasto platter and the spinach salad. Friendly service.

Went here on a sister date and had a great time! The food tasted really good but the pasta portion was small so definitely get a appetizer if you are pretty hungry. The aesthetics remind me of France and so does the large wine selection. That being said the choices of wine by the glass is incredibly small so be prepared on getting a wine bottle for dinner. The outside patio on a Sunday sunny day is a must!

We have dined at La Bottega so many times I cannot remember. The best thing about this place is the people that own it. Next to that everything on the menu is a treat. This is not a spaghetti and meatballs kind of place. Seems like home cooking recipes every time. Also one should note that the wine list is built by the owners in particular the owner's daughter who has tested every wine and can recommend ... and we just learned that she is a sommelier level three. The customers that go to La Bottega are also lovely (usually) and so are the staff. I highly recommend this place and so does my wife. In fact I think we'll go there again in the next couple of days. One thing that is unusual that you could try is the chicken on the larger plate menu which is always slightly modified for the season. Never misses. Another special element is a vodka sauce that can be used as an alternate for any of the pasta dishes Best wishes.

La bottega on the go? Lunch break? Picnic? Before you get in your car make sure you have you phone, keys, wallet, and forks of course. I picked up food to go tonight and the smell was fantastic however when I sat down in the park to eat I realized I didn't have a fork in the bag. I ended up hunching over my box finger banging food into my mouth like a f****** barbarian. I was shocked that the other park goers didn't attempt an exorcism on me. In the end, I did thoroughly enjoy my food and plan on returning I just hope next time I don't need to eat like I'm from the Jurassic era

I went in on 6/22 at opening. I had the spinach salad and vodka penne, it was lovely and good pricing for the portion and quality of food. What was even better was the service. I was acknowledged almost immediately and had just the loveliest gentlemen serving me. I didn’t catch his name but he truly provided warm, efficient, and personable table service. I will definitely be returning and telling everyone to go check out the great food and spectacular service!
