Italian Trattoria Uptown Style

Well the secret is out. Our very own La Bottega has received high praises from the Oregonian in a recent review. I'd say too bad, because I regularly walk to the nearby little trattoria and deli for gourmet ingredients, items for an impromptu picnic, prepared sauces and soups for an easy meal at home, or an excellent meal. And I typically enjoyed quick seating and service, but truthfully nothing makes me happier than knowing that a local restaurant is getting the kind of attention it truly deserves even if I have to wait a bit longer for a table.

"It's just a few feet of wooden food shelving, holding jars of olives and mustards, but it must be magic.

On one side of it is a deli counter, with a sign on the wall telling people how to design their sandwiches.

On the other side is a handful of wooden tables where diners are consuming smoked mushroom raviolis with balsamic cream, seafood risotto and veal scallopine Marsala.

Possibly most magical of all, the food shelves are in Vancouver."
