There's no reason any diner should subject themselves to the surly, snooty, dismissive and, argumentative attitude of the hosts. I was treated this way by not just 1, but 2 hostess all in the space of 1 dinner. While my server was pleasant and responsive, it's hard to imagine how even good food and a pretty garden could sustain this level of rudeness and ambivalence. Spend your money in a restaurant which actually appreciates its customers. It's NOT Bottino.

I met a girlfriend for drinks here last night. It was a nice cozy space that was good for catching up. The bartender waited on us at a table, and helped us select a wonderful chianti. The service was very fast, for the wine and the food. We had a delicious crostini with pesto, walnuts, and parmesan but it was basically one slice of bread for us to share. We then had the pork sausage stuffed apples that were okay, but lacked in flavor. Even for just an appetizer, you do need to order a few of the small plates. The chairs and benches are uncomfortably high, and the tables are not, so you have to kind of sit sideways because your legs won't fit under the table. But overall, I would return for some wine again, but would probably sit at the bar, which looked a little more comfortable.

The restaurant is very crowded. After others at the table and I were bumped by staff several times, the waiter hit me hard in the head with a tray. While I'm sure it was an accident, when I complained, the manager came over and proceeded to explain that it happened because ""you turned your head when he walked by."" She was not at all apologetic and made it appear as though it were my fault. I would not return to this restaurant. I do not hold the waiter responsible, but the manager should have better customer skills than to imply it was my fault I was hit in the head!

I've been here several times in the past and had nice group dinners in the back room, however my fiance and I went with friends last week for a light bite and had embarrassingly bad service. The waiter sighed dramatically and rolled his eyes at our friends when they declined wine, and disappeared completely when the only ordered salads. When my fiance absently said he like full bodied French reds, the guy hissed that this was an Italian restaurant and they only had Italian. He never came back. Take a break Zoolander! The hostess and busboy served us our meals and checked on us again later, but my lamb ragu was bland and watery, and I couldn't get the bad taste our first waiter had left out of my mouth. Don't waste your money on a half-full restaurant pretending to be something it is clearly not. Next!
My boyfriend and I were looking for an outdoor spot to grab dinner on a Friday and found this place online. Aside from being rather rude on the phone, the service was friendly and prompt when we arrived.
Fluorescent lighting in the bar area overflowed into the main dinning room, making you feel like you were more in a cubical than dining out in the city. The tuna tartar was very fresh and flavorful and our fillet mignon was tasty but not spectacular. The prices are on the high side for this slightly above average Italian cuisine.

Had a great dinner in the garden at Bottino; our wait for a table outside was pretty brief, (they dont take reservations for the garden), so we enjoyed the crowd at the bar (art world, west chelsea on a Thursday night...quite intense) Loved the black spaghettini with lobster and tomato, roasted orata, octopus vinaigrette. Reminded me of Venice (Italy, not California.)
