Set in a charming courtyard adjacent to Calamari and Taurus, La Bottega is a culinary and wine lover’s paradise. Its relaxing, social ambiance features a full-service cocktail and wine bar with over 30 wines by the glass and an impressive wine list. Under the culinary artistry of Chef Igor Ferraro, a native of Venice among whose successes is the highly popular gastro pub in Rome, Tramezzo, La Bottega introduces South Florida to Venetian bar favorites which are swiftly becoming all the rage in Italy. These include Cicchetti, which are small dishes similar to tapas, and Tramezzini, small crustless sandwiches in a variety of fillings to pair with wine and cocktails and of course, abundant platters of salumeria – Italian meats and cheeses.
The Open Kitchen is an exciting feature where customers can pull up a banquette to the counter and watch as Chef Igor and Chef Gonzalo prepare a versatile array of Italian culinary offerings – appetizers, fresh pastas and entrees, all whipped up in front of your eyes.
Wine Tastings, Wine Classes, Cooking Classes and Wine Pairings Dinners are all part of the interactive experience that makes La Bottega more than just a comfortable neighborhood favorite. La Bottega is one of the rare places in Miami that actually has an underground Wine Cellar, La Cava, which is also a private membership club that includes private wine lockers and many amenities.
Available for private wine tastings, dinners, corporate and special events.
