Has a wonderful local feeling which is sadly becoming rare in Shoreditch. Dishes are authentic and made of fine ingredients. Italian wine list is honest and well chosen. Its lively and possibly too noisy for a quiet lunch but could easily be described as pleasantly lively. Highly recommended.

With the feel of a rustic Italian cottage, Bottega Prelibato is a traditional slice of the Mediterranean in Shoreditch. Freshly-made Italian delicacies are served up, while the art gallery space inside showcases the talents of local artists.

The Bottega Prelibato menu is rich in seasonal Italian recipes made with the finest ingredients sourced from local markets. Beautifully presented starters include courgette flowers filled with anchovies and sun-dried tomatoes, while platters offer up buffalo mozzarella, chilli nduja and mixed vegetables. Sumptuous pasta creations range from black ink scialatielli with crab, scallops and squid, to gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil.

Desserts at Bottega Prelibato Shoreditch include traditional tiramisu, as well as homemade pear and chocolate cake. An extensive wine list boasts vintages from across Italy, including dessert wine from Umbria.

A tranquil, traditional example of Italian dining, Bottega Prelibato London is a 5-minute walk from Old Street Tube Station.

    The food was great and so was the wine we choose. They explained the food menu to the details....We had to wait slightly longer for our main to arrive. And for our drinks the weiter had to retake our order.

    My favorite when visiting. Very authentic Italian and always a great mix of dishes. If it doesn't look familiar to you listen to your waitstaff. They will not steer you wrong! My friend had the gnocchi with mushrooms and it was out of this world. We split the burrata as a starter which was phenomenal.
    Great ambiance but always busy. Be sure to make a ressi!

    We arrived for our 8.30 booking at 8.55 and our table was still not available until 9.05. Our first course arrived around just over an hour later. This restaurant, for many years my favourite in this area, has grown beyond its means. You feel this at every level, the noise, the quality of the staff, the time it takes to get your meal and the breadth of choice. If you can get here early before it fills up then it would be better but it felt like something quite special and quirkily independent has got greedy and bloated.

    The quality of food is good but the service was poor.

  • (((** 22 November 2016 by AOR from London

    The place is cute, cosy, has a nice vibe to it upstairs.
    Wine was brought after serving main, and we had to remind them to do so. Wine was fantastic by the way...
    The food was delicious, but I think all a bit overpriced. Would expect better service and attention to details. It was a busy night! Maybe the place needs to considering hiring more staff to be able to be more dedicated to clients and improve experience all together

    The food is just delicious and portions are generous. It was a shame we were asked to leave so the second service could use our table. That was fine because we were going anyway, but customers should be able to stay as long as they want - or get informed that they will have a limited time at the time of the booking
