As usual it was a lovely meal in very pleasant surrounds and the Valentine decorations were a nice touch. Thanks for making our Valentines Day special.
Great food, excellent service, friendly staff, fantastic atmosphere what more needs to be said about Botticelli Resteraunt in Brighton, we had a great Valentine Lunch
Unexpected good surprise; we were pleased in every sense. Excellent service and very friendly staff. Nice place and pleasant atmosphere. Very good menu, high quality of presentation and taste; we did enjoy it. We certainly are going back there again.
Excellent food as always with beautiful wine. We tried both of the Italian reds and both were lovely. The carbonara is the best you'll get anywhere in Melbourne. Service was great.
Warm, friendly and an enjoyable evening. Took my parents who were visiting from the U.K. On there last evening before taking them to catch there flight so we was a little pushed for time, thankfully we found the survive to be very swift and didn't have to wait long befor our food was served. The food was well presented and tasted good so all in all a big thumbs up from us. Thy also had a baby seat and the staff made a fuss of the little one.
Large selection to choose from. Looks like a classy restaurant from the outside but meals were a were a bit ordinary on the inside. The bruschetta with buffalo cheese was a bland dish (served with grated lettuce - seriously?!), the pasta of my crab tortellini was a bit tough and the salmon linguini a bit salty. If you want a true Italian restaurant experience, probably not a restaurant of choice but the American/Canadian waiter was friendly and attentive, accompanied by his subcontinental colleagues. The Baileys creme brûlée was simple but was the highlight. Prices slightly on the high side for what was delivered but I would go back to try something else. It was pleasant enough.
We have no hesitation in recommending Botticelli of Brighton which we give a ten out of ten for attentive service pleasant atmosphere it's menu and superb food quality.
The food was very good and the portions were excellent. Service was also very good. The lighting and ambiance was also very good, the down point was the lack of sound deadening. The venue is very noisy as the waiter had problems hearing us as well. The room could do with some sound absorbing material on the walls, other than that I really enjoyed the experience.
Never had a bad meal there. Great service from Giordana and the food was fantastic and just right timing, and sitting outdoors on a gorgeous 24° day is great in Brighton. It would have had '6 stars' instead of 5 if like, a bunch of Victoria's Secret supermodels sat down at the table and drank with us for a few hours. But that didn't happen.
Great food at very good prices and terrific service. The lunchtime special is great value with two levels, both including a glass of house wine. Attentive but not intrusive service and it doesn't matter whether you are dining at lunchtime or for dinner - the quality and value is the same.
