Once again La Botte did not disappoint. I was dining with my 86 year old father and the service was most accommodating with a quiet rear table so we could talk and were away from the door. Our calamari, whitebait, gambaro and osso bucco were all perfectly cooked and arrived at appropriate intervals. The wine list has a good choice of both Australian and Italian wines, by the bottle and by the glass. Ever reliable for a much better than normal suburban fare and service, we will be back again.

Lovely traditional Italian restaurant whose ambience reminded us of those in Italy itself. Very impressed with the pasta dishes we chose for our first visit. Also very pleasant not to have any annoying background music! We will be back.

Shipon, the chef, not only cooks delicious Italian food but also personally welcomes his guests as if they are family. Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal. The food is always excellent and the service friendly and efficient.

We did order a garlic bread to start which was forgotten, it was a busy night so it was forgiveable but it would have been nice.
