La Bottega is an Italian deli caffe that serves home cooked food with the finest Italian ingredients. We stopped by La Bottega on Old Brompton Road, on a not so cold and sunny afternoon and loved the food there. There is precious little information on their website but for the fact that they have 6 locations across South West London. Most of these locations are open only until 5 or 6 PM.
La Bottega on Old Brompton Road offers limited indoor seating and some outdoor seating as well. The outdoor chairs are perfect for a summer afternoon!
The tomato salad tossed in a light pesto sauce was absolutely heavenly! It seems simple enough for me to be able to recreate it at home. We also got a serving of Greek salad (in the background in the picture below)
The panini with fresh mozarella and spicy salami and rocket was divine!! So simple,yet so satisfying Reminded me of the spicy salami sandwich that I had in Grandaisy Bakery in NYC
After trying the delicious food at La Bottega, I would be surprised if their Italian grocery items are not high quality! If you are ever at a La Bottega location and have tried their groceries and drinks, please tell me how you would compare these to what you would get at Carluccio’s.
