Woodstock, Cape Town has become a revamped artistic hub of absolute awesomeness, nestling the most incredible gems of the Western Cape, La Bottega is a gem to top the list. La Bottega mixes all the epic greatness of everything Italian with a spin of the beauty and the vibe of South Africa, coupled with an incredibly simplistic yet beautiful décor and friendly staff, not to mention the heavily packed food and beverage menu which tantalises the tongue and fancy of everyone who tries it.
The saying is ‘La Bottega dello Spuntino’ which translates to the little neighbourhood shop of the little bite. In Italy, la Bottega is a getaway from the madness of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a place that even though it is situated in the heart of the busy, it provides a completely different environment that allows you to forget the madness of the working week, even if it is for lunch time. La Bottega caters for all your event needs as well, including but not limited to Birthday Parties, Launch Parties, Wrap Parties and Corporate Events. The venue is easy to find and there is ample parking available with security on site. They have a roof top deck/balcony which has been perfectly prepared whether it’s hot, cold or rainy.
The menu at La Bottega is packed full of everything Italian as well as all the beloved things your mind can conjure up, like chilli poppers that haven’t been matched anywhere else in Cape Town. The pizzas are simply fabulous and they range from the well known Margheritas to deliciously different Pulled Pork pizza which consists of tomato, mozzarella, origanum, slow roasted pork belly, the famous La Bottega BBQ sauce, jalapenos, avocado and rocket; different but divine. The salads are something special and La Bottega offers a ‘Have it your way’ option, the prices per option are not that steep at all and choosing how and what you want on your salad is something that simply makes everything else so much more delicious.
Weekly special include 2-4-1 pizza specials on Tuesdays from 6 – 9pm and 2-4-1 burger specials on Thursdays from 6 – 9pm. Valid for a limited time only!
Apart from the excellent food La Bottega has on offer there are the widest variety of locally produced craft beers from Boston Breweries as well the beloved favourites on tap. There is often a new craft beer that is either introduced to the menu or not, so they offer beer sampling a lot of the time to make sure, as with everything else, that their customers get what they want. With all the awesomeness that makes up La Bottega, it’s a must visit venue in Cape Town!
