Back to Botticelli for the first time in over 10 years! The new owners have done an amazing job invigorating what had become a lack lustre Italian Restaurant. Services is casual but professional with a big emphasis on creating a family environment. To the food, Brighton is blessed for choice and there are not too many bad establishments. However Botticelli has just gone to the top of our list of go to eateries in the area. We shared a few entrees which included the scallops, oysters natural and the warmed olives. You can taste the quality of the produce and the love placed in each dish. For mains our kids shared the Fish and Chips (in their words the best they have had) and we have the Vitello limone and Saltimbocca. Again produce is exceptional, presentation is simple but professional. Overall a great experience, not to formal but still feel like it's an event.
A great local restaurant serving well cooked delicious and authentic Italian food. The service is spot on with pleasant, efficient wait staff. We are never disappointed.
Great food and service. Reasonable prices and a nice, friendly atmosphere on New Years Eve. Service was very efficient for such a busy night. Many thanks!
