"Food"
"This is a good place. Other reviewer ordered a pizza as an entre... Seems clear that they need to experience more dining to realize that this is not a pizza joint. At any rate the veal options are excellent as are the seafood. The pricing is very reasonab"
"Food is good and service is excellent"
Cons
"There is usually a wait on weekends if you have no reservation. The bar is not very large. You should get a reservation."

Thankfully, we had a great waiter that kind of redeemed this restaurant experience – not that it was terrible, but it wasn’t anything to get excited about. We started off with 3 different kinds of bread & olive oil & parmesean. The bread was OK, but the olive oil was pretty good – nice and fruity. For dinner we both ordered Capricciosa pizza – the combination of mushrooms, artichokes, olives & prosciutto would have been wonderful… if it had actually been prosciutto. In reality, it was just your average cooked deli ham on top – nothing special. BUT I liked the attempt at creativity, artichokes are one of my favorites and hey were good on the pizza. The crust was nice and crispy, so that’s a plus. Also, our waiter recommended a delicious pino grigio that went well with the meal. For dessert we tried the pastry with nutella & ice cream (the name escapes me) and it was pretty good: flaky pastry and creamy ice cream… it could have used a little more nutella though. The decor was lacking in the main dining room as welll; with the large 2 story room they could have done something really upscale and dramatic, but instead you kind of feel like you’re eating at a friends house. All in all, this place was just OK – fine for a night out if you don’t have high expectations.

Good Italian

Bottaio is a good Italian restaurant. Small and intimate restaurant with an extensive menu. Convenient Libertyville location, fairly ample parking (also offers valet).

Worst dining experience in years

My husband and I chose this place based on the great reviews and the fact that it is always busy in the evenings, so I will preface this by saying that it may have been a bad night for them. But it was a really bad night.\r \r We had…
