veal medallions and mushroom in a marsala wine sauce
One of the finest or If not the finest restaurant in Libertyville. Never disappoints. Thank you Tom and staff. Job well done.
We were seated immediately, but it looked like they were well over the 50% limit in phase 4. My wife and I have been vaccinated, so I let it slide. The owner was in the kitchen, using his mask as a chinstrap or a nose support. Again, we let it slide.
Our order was taken quickly, so I got my hopes up that the opentable “Great Service” tag was well-deserved. Flag forward 50 minutes, and we FINALLY got our food.
My drink was never refilled. We had to get the bus boy to track down our waiter, so we could cash out.
The food was OK, but between the anti-masker owner and the inattentive service, and the a little better than average food, I don’t think we’ll go back.
Great food & service. We just love this restaurant.
Our server Kyle was amazing. Service was fantastic and we loved our meals. Veal chop was one of the best I have tried. Appetizer of calamari was light and flavorful.
Best Italian food around and great service and a good value
We continue to return to Bottaio's as they are always great! Amazing food, great service ... can't say enough good things!
Felt a bit rushed in the beginning of our meal, but the pace improved after a couple of table visits by our waiter who could then see we were there for a leisurely evening of conversation. Food was abundant and tasty, My friend and I both took home leftovers to enjoy the next day.
Great food and service
Wonderful menu and food.
We love this place. The owner Tom is friendly and kind and makes sure he is always changing up the specials and adding great alternatives to the awesome menu. The ambiance is great and family friendly. It’s a must try if you haven’t already
Staff was friendly and food was DELICIOUS!!
Excellent food and service. They take the virus protection seriously.
Food and service were outstanding as usual.
Wonderful place to dine, food and service are exceptional every time
Outstanding food and service! The specials were just amazing and so were the wine choices!
Our waiter Kyle was fabulous. He recommended things that we normally wouldn't order and we took him up on his suggestions. We are so happy that we did. Our meal was terrific and the service was wonderful. This is going to be our go to place from now on!
The food it's amazing, the chef has weekly specials and they are always delicious, nice ambiance and very inexpensive, can't wait to go back
Wonderful variety of food and great prices. Service was splendid.
The BEST Italian food around. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Don't wait, your missing a great meal!
We dined in the covered parking lot. The temperature was cool but didn't take away the wonderful dining experience. Bottaio is now in our contact list.
Great dinner on a beautiful night.
Being Italian i was pleasantly surprised. Definitely will be back
Food was fantastic and very friendly service!
Our meal was outstanding as well as the service was outstanding. This restaurant never fails. LOVE THIS PLACE!
Excellent restaurant. My waiter and the management were terrific. Food was truly amazing!
We love trying new restaurants and this one had good ratings so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent and portions were plentiful- enough to take home so we could enjoy later. The service was perfect and I was very impressed at how quickly our finished plates were removed from our table so we could enjoy our after dinner drinks without the dirty dishes. It is the little things that make the biggest difference!
Great service and excellent food.
Ordered a Rigatoni with Italian sausage with a tomato sauce. The Rigatoni were not cook enough. The sausage ( only served one sausage) was burned and felt old and dry.
Excellent food as usual!! The scampi Prosecco was amazing!! Highly recommend this authentic Italian restaurant.
Best restaurant in town! Amazing food and service!
Great experience once again!
We had lunch there on Sunday. So sad to see how the pandemic paranoia has decimated this restaurant's (well, all restaurants) business. We were the only two dining outside on a great day to be outside. We've also been there in the recent past for dinner on a Friday and on a Saturday night. The food and service, as always, were great. But the place was largely empty. Pre Pork-zger, Bottaio has always been packed.
I'm sure hoping their takeout business (which we've also supported) helps them survive the lunacy of our obese dictator has inflicted on us all.
Give Bottaio the benefit of your support. And vote that wimp and all the rest of his ilk out of office in Illinois.
Our waiter Kyle was awesome and the meal was outstanding. This is a great place and you’re missing out on a terrific evening if you don’t go.
Fabulous! Can't wait to return! Each of us had a different meal, and they were equally wonderful.
excellent food, atmosphere and service and I highly recommend
Our meal was outstanding. Service was great. Love this place.
Food served hot and tasty. Out door seating with heaters comfortable.
Absolutely Wonderful! Great Service, friendly staff, amazing food! A++++
Spouse’s pasta was undercooked. Chef did correct, but dish was still lacking shrimp and flavor, for the price
