Delicious food and very helpful wait staff. Will definitely go back! Liked being able to book online and fast response to confirm booking on email.
Food was incredible authentic Italian food. Service was spectacular. Ambience amazing we will definitely be returning back and recommending this restuarant to all of our friends.
The good was marvellous and the staff were attentive and well informed in regards to the menu and food description.. I had the calamari, Fillet steak with Barolo sauce and Lemon tart, and I have to say every dish was impeccable... Great place, Great Staff but most importantly Fantastic food.
AMAZING food. Great portion sizes. Wonderful service. Absolutely perfect experience, would return and would recommend. The service was fast and friendly, they had a good knowledge of the menu and were friendly.
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.
Not cheap for what we got. Fritto misto with rubbery Calimari, gnocchi Napoli with a sauce akin to tomato soup, an overcooked steak and creme brulee without a crispy top. At almost $200 for a couple with 2 drinks each, I'd expect to at least enjoy my food!
We had dinner at Botticcelli tonight. Good service, good selection on the menu, the food was very nicely presented and delicious. There were 6 of us and we all ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their food. Would certainly recommend it and would go again.
Service was very good, attentive, just right. Food was as described the veal dish was tender and with a very flavoursome sauce. The stroganoff meat could have been more tender. Only disappointment was that for a full service restaurant when we came to pay we were informed of surcharges on all credit cards.
Botticelli - great Italian food. Just like Mamma would cook. Great service. Staff very friendly. Great choice of wines but also a bonus that it is BYO. Have been there a few times now and the food is consistent. Highly recommend.
Very Good food but I had a small table at the back in the corner close to kitchen , so it wasn't the best spot , it seems like it's mostly family restaurant and mature people ,soft Italian music would be nice in a background
Nice atmosphere and very pleasant food. Wine list is reasonable and not too over priced. Not a bad affogato either. Our only complaint would be that it's a little noisy, likely due to a lack of soft furnishings on the walls and compact size.
The food was great, as always, as was the service. We were made to feel welcome, more like part of the family than customers. The atmosphere was warm and cosy, with a full house that night.
New Year's Eve - restaurant booked out, with more than 1 sitting, YET staff were great - good humour and helpful and food up to usual great standard. Congratulations all round to those running that restaurant
The customer service was wonderful and the food was perfect. We were not sure which wine to order so the staff offered their assistance. It was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be going again :)
The service was outstanding. I was a bit disappointed with the Linguine Marinara which lacked a bit flavour but the Linguine Salmone was delicious. The inclusion of a reasonable size glass of wine was a welcome touch. Garlic bread was a fair sized serve but also lacked that special something.
Staff are very welcoming, the ambiance is pleasant and the food is excellent. The location is well situated and the are no negatives to complain about. My wife and I are happy to dine there on a regular basis.
Very friendly staff and owners of the business. Food better than Ive experienced in Italy. Took other family members with me that will look them up when they start there new venture.
Had to wait over 15 minutes to be seated in spite of the booking. Food was very good but overall service a little lax. I would probably go back to give one further chance but if service has not improved would most likely be my last visit.
Always an absolute pleasure to dine @ Botticelli's! Food is fantastic & service is excellent!! Salvatore, Gordana,Sharma & team..thank you for the very happy memories we always have at your restaurant!
Food was excellent, atmosphere was very elegant and relaxed, Service was friendly and courteous, I have been to this restaurant in the past and will go again. I definitely recommend it
Have been going to Botticelli for many years now, the food and service are always top notch - one of my absolute favourites. Very good value lunch deal too. Highly recommend.
Excellent service, friendly atmosphere, good food. Will definitely book this restaurant again. Just 50 meters from Dendy Palace Cinema. Catch an early Film then a quick walk to the restaurant. Enjoy
My friend and I enjoyed the evening at Botticelli. The service was efficient, courteous and knowledgeable. Both of us really liked our meals and the wines we chose. We will continue to meet for dinner at Botticelli.
This is a lovely restaurant. The wait staff and service where very good. Food was excellent . Would definitely go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other people.
Good food, good service, nothing is too much trouble when I recently celebrated a birthday there, nice atmosphere and decore and reasonably priced. What more could you want. Jan Longworth
Staff were very attentive and friendly. Great menu. Food was amazing. Was really busy on a Saturday night with a Lovely atmosphere. We were very impressed and Would definitely recommend.
Great quality Italian food at reasonable prices and served by friendly and efficient staff. Especially good value is the evening special of a pasta dish with garlic or herb bread and a glass of wine.
An amazing restaurant for Italian food. Everything tastes fresh and Pasta made in store. I had the prawn and scallop linguini. Service was excellent too. I highly recommend Botticelli.
A favourite local restaurant we often visit. Always a great dining experience serving amazing, delicious food. Staff are very friendly and professional. Highly recommended for friends and family gatherings.
Nice restaurant but not much room to move about and very noisy. Went there for my birthday and found myself squashed in a corner without space to get out of my chair. Expected better for the price paid. Food was mostly good.
Excellent food in just the right amount, friendly attentive staff who were only too pleased to accommodate dietary restrictions and lovely atmosphere we couldn't have asked for more.
Nice environment with beautiful food - really enjoyable for a Sunday lunch session The service was a little slower at coming with the wine but overall very good
Gre t food and lovely restaurant! The service is excellent. Oysters are fresh and steak cooked to perfection. Love the wine list - great choice and range.
I love Botticelli - it is the closest thing to being in beautiful Italy. The staff are always helpful and cheeful and the food is lovely
We had a really lovely meal. Fabulous scallops and pasta special . Also very good service. Will be back there soon. It's my new favorite restaurant.
Great Father's Day lunch late booking very accomodating and friendly staff. Will be back for sure.thought the veal dish was excellent liqueur coffees to die for.
Fantastic service, fantastic food. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We were celebrating a birthday and they made our night special. Friendly and helpful staff and great atmosphere.
Botticellis' continues to offer a varied, exciting menu of food options along with an excellent wine list, served by expert and friendly staff - truly a neighbourhood gem, well worth enjoying.
The food was excellent, especially the steak in Barolo sauce. However, the service was very slow. We had a 7pm reservation and an 8:30 movie and had to rush to finish and left our last glass of wine.
The food is amazing , with great service and a fantastic atmosphere. We will be back for sure - Thanks Botticelli for a great night.
Fantastic restaurant , lovely food and the service is amazing . We cannot stop going back there . We will be back there again .
Lovely place we had a good evening and we were well looked after. Food is good authentic Italian food that we can't cook at home.
An always consistent, classy restaurant with excellent food and excellent service. We have been patrons for since its inception and have no hesitation in recommending it to diners.
Great Tortellini special and the Brodetto di mare is always a good option: only problem is the delay in serving the bread with the Brodetto. Service otherwise excellent.
First time there. Had great food and wine at a reasonable price. Will return there soon to try some of the other great items on the menu
Lovely evening, beautiful food. Bit too noisy & tables a little to close to each other. One female waitress bumped my chair every time she passed through.
