This place blew my mind. The food was insanely delicious. Their gnocchi was one of the best dishes I have ever had. Only complaint was that there was an event going on outside that was quite rowdy, so that made for a less peaceful atmosphere. But everything else considered, I would definitely go back and recommend this place!
The service was terrible.  They cleared my plate before I was done and brought out the food before the wine.  We were left waiting for the wine and our food got cold.  They did not fill our water cups and largely forgot about us.  This is a very pricy restaurant and it was a special dinner for us- 17th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent (of the dishes that were on time and warm) but the service took all that away.  I do not recommend spending that kind of money when the service is that poor. Very disappointed.
A fine Italian-dining experience at this Michelin-rated restaurant.  2 appetizers, 4 dinners, and 2 desserts for came out to $213 before tip.  Expect to spend $50.00+ per head for a non-alcoholic dinner. A complimentary basket of garlic fries along with a crusty bread made for a good start. Appetizers: Polenta sotto ventro ($14.00) described as "Polenta under glass with caramelized wild mushrooms with balsamic game sauce and a parmesan frico."  This is definitely not your farmer's rustic polenta; this was upscale and refined in every respect.  All flavors and contrasting textures worked well together.   Polpo al Grigilia ($16.00) described as "Wood grilled octopus was prepared over olive oil braised potato with salsa verde, tonnato sauce, and an arugula pickled red onion salad."  The octopus was very delicate and tender - a difficult feat to accomplish if you've ever tried to cook a cephalopod before.  For the price, however, we would have preferred a larger cut. Entrees: Branzino alla Grigilia ($32.00) described as a "Wood grilled whole fish with charred marinated eggplant and heirloom tomato Panzanella salad."  Interesting presentation including the head and tail - unusual in America where most prefer a filet.  It was perfectly cooked, delicate, with the perfect amount of simultaneous crunch and tenderness. Brodetto ai Frutti di Mare ($33.00) described as "Gulf prawns, savory clams, Monterrey calamari and mussels poached in a white wine tomato broth with an olive oil crouton and Saffron aioli."  This is similar in taste and look to a cioppino.  I thought the price was about $10.00 too high for this good but straightforward seafood stew given the small portion.   Rigatoni al Coniglio ($23.00) described as "balsamic rabbit sugo with caramelized mushrooms and homemade ricotta cheese."  Bold flavors with a rich, creamy texture.   Risotto al Giorno.  Pea risotto with cheese-stuffed chilis.  The most interesting of all the dishes.  I have a new found respect for the use of peas in a risotto.  Impressive how they managed to stuff the chilis without seeing any seams or sign of manipulation. Dessert: Festa Dell'Amore all'Olio Buono ($14.00) described as "California Extra Virgin Olive Oil pudding with a salted chocolate olive crunch, olive oil gelato, and a chocolate lattice."  An interesting combination of flavors that one would not normally associate together.  This proves that olive oil can be used in just about everything including dessert.   House made chocolate gelato with a biscotto ($10.00).  True gelato, i.e. light and airy, with an intense flavor of chocolate.   Bottega is somewhat dark and noisy at night.  Tables are placed close together without any sound-absorbing materials.  Even during the day, little natural light is permitted to enter other than in the covered patio area.  Décor is generally sparse and uninteresting. While very good overall, the price does not permit Bottega to be other than a rare feast for a special occasion.  I would happily prefer a 5th start if and only if they dropped their prices by 30% to encourage my repeat patronage for other than special occasions.
