    Four of us enjoyed the relaxing surroundings and friendly service. We had four different main courses and each one was delicious. We can recommend the veal cutlet, the veal with mushrooms, the butterfly prawns and the barramundi. The tiramisu and cheesecake were both light and very tasty.

    Great food, lovely service. Very reasonably priced wine list. Only one suggestion, the space is a little too bright. Perhaps more subdued lighting and candles would make it. 10/10 experience. That said, I’ll be back! Thank you.

    The veal was incredible, but my husband had the prawns in tomato salsa and it with a bit overcooked and fiddly having to dig them out of the shells. Waitress was okay but didnt know very much about the menu it seemed.

    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.

    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.

    Food was amazing and came out quick after we ordered. Service was great and very friendly. Back ground music would be nice.
