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 restaurant felt very authentic, as we walked in the room was quite full but everything the vibe was very relaxed; the staff was very nice and they the table ready for us. We order from the Specials board and I must say the food exceeded the expectation. We started with a platter of burrata, salmon and caviar - unusual combination but damn was it good; for main course i had a sirloin steak cooked to perfection with sauteed mushrooms and spinach - absolutely excellent. My partner and I shared a bottle of Inferno which I would definitely recommend. Overall experience was good and I will be dining here again and again and again.

    The food was good, in particular the truffle mushroom ravoili. The seafood ravoili was not as good with the calamari quite chewy. Unfortunately our experience was slightly let down by where we sat - a small downstairs area close to the toilet so we kept getting toilet smells wafting over us.

    We booked a table for 20 person on Saturday evening and were allocated to seat together in few joint tables, it was amazing. We enjoyed the authentic Italian food, cozy space and the great service very much.

    Although there's no English menu in the restaurant, the staff explained their menu clearly with "samples" of various Italian noodles/Ravioli, etc.

    Hoping to try some dessert next time!!!

    This place is always amazing. The papardelle are a must. Make sure to ask for a doggy bag because they give you proper portions of pasta here

    Very busy on a Friday night, good food, service a little overstretched and under-knowledgable, but fun and welcoming.
