La Bottega del Caffe reviews

By Selina B.

This company takes advantage of unemployed (mainly foregin) youngsters. While promising jobs to these poor unsuspecting souls, they offer a "trail shift" making the person work about 8 hours for no payment. Once the shift is over, the Manager then lets the person who has effectively slaved away for the past 8 hours that there are at least another 4 people coming to do trial shifts and that he will let them know in a few days if they have a job, of course they never hear from the company again. Absolutely disgusting and unethical practice.

Excellent experience! The staff was very helpful and the food was delicious and very unique. The atmosphere was amazing and very laid back. I loved it and will be returning soon!

La Bottega del Caffe’ is around the corner from my office and I finally decided to have lunch there one week ago. The staff were incredibly efficient and helpful. Food and drink were excellent and would certainly go back there again. Lovely Italian atmosphere!

When you enter the Bottega del Caffe’ you surely notice the Italian style hospitality that surrounds you. I am Italian, so I know what I’m talking about. It has been a long time since I’ve seen here in London, a city that can be so gloomy, food that looks so good. It reminded me of my childhood, when I used to go to the delicatessen shop near my house with my mother. I had a cheese and meat platter for lunch and I have to say, it’s really worth what you pay for it (much more than I expected). I admit that I really felt satisfied.

My visit to La Bottega del Cafe was a very good one. The atmosphere was excellent. During the rush hour of lunch time, it was a bit noisy (but that is expected during this time). I had the Parma Ham and Mozzarella Focaccia and it was very good. For coffee, the espresso was very well made. This Italian coffee was strong, just the way I like it.The staff was very polite and helpful. They took the orders down and made the food in good time. This made the visit to the cafe very enjoyable.

3* overall? You are joking! Coffee and cake for £4.50? Friendly staff? Superb location? Miles ahead of that other stupid franchise everyone else goes to. This is my office when I'm in the West End.

By Maria O.

One of my favourite places to have lunch and breakfast in London. Very fresh ingredients and their Italian cioccolata is just heavenly!

By Andrew S.

We often come here as its close to the office- the coffee is fantastic and the croissants are really fresh. Its a busy, modern and the wifi is free

By John B.

Coffee isn't bad but the noise staff make, while you are trying to relax in the half empty shop, is unberable. Shop manager absent. This store shows the worst part of Italy!

By Steve M.

I often get coffee from here - its much better than the american chains and the food is decent quality. Very Italian feel

By Thomas C.

I went in to have a sandwich and could not order anything as they told me they were about to close. How rude can you be?

By Aldo R.

I went to this place and no one even aknowledge my presence. I left after two minutes unattended. Staff is really rude, no food on display and mess all over.

By Michael D.

London is besieged by coffee and sandwich bars of varying standards. However, a breath of fresh Italian air has blown into town in the shape of La Bottega del Caffe.

The Venue
La Bottega has branches in Italy and their high quality food and drinks are now reaching the UK. Just down from the BBC and just a coffee bean’s throw from Oxford Circus, La Bottega del Caffe has everything going for it. Being Italian there’s a chic stylishness about the room which stretches way, way back, with a long counter at the front and seats and tables at the rear. It’s a dual operation as anything and everything may be either consumed in or taken away. The décor is bright and cheerful and the array of food on display whets the appetite immediately.

The Atmosphere
There’s a healthy buzz to the place and, being so near to Oxford Street and Regent Street, it's somewhere for shoppers to relax. And relax they will because the ambience is truly comforting. The members of staff are friendly, helpful, very polite and welcoming - thanks perhaps to its Italian authenicity. It all looks clean and fresh, from the surroundings to the food itself.

The Food
La Bottega is open all day for sandwiches, salads and pastries, plus hot and cold drinks - but nothing alcoholic. All the produce is supplied from Italy and that includes the best Italian delicatessen. All the breads are Italian, so you can choose from foccaccia (£4.50-£5.50), panini (£4.20-£4.50), crostini (£6.90-£7.35) and others, all offering a wealth of excellent fresh fillings. If you want a savoury and generous bite, try foccaccia filled with Parma ham, cooked ham or speck, the north Italian smoked and spiced ham. All are freshly made and combined with mozzarella, tomato, rocket or basil. There are also non-meat fillings such as tuna with mayonnaise or mozzarella and tomato. The panini are equally good with bresaola (the air-dried beef from the Italian Alps) dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, Parmesan and pine nuts; turkey with pesto (basil and pine nuts); smoked beef with pepper sauce and many more.

Even more substantial are the salads (£2.95-£7.50) including prawn, chicken, bresaola and mozzarella with tomatoes. The Mediterranean is a bumper dish of toasted bread with salad, tomatoes, anchovies, capers, black olives and mozzarella. There are three platters or taglieri (£12.95), comprising variations on the ingredients of Parma ham, culatello (pear-shaped, air-dried Parma ham), mortadella or speck, combined with different cheeses such as gorgonzola, taleggio and Parmesan. All the meats and the rich, creamy cheeses are in very good condition and of the highest quality. Desserts (£1.45-£3.50) include filled croissants (£1.75) with custard, chocolate or jam fillings. The lemon custard is particularly fine and there is a marvellous chocolate tart with pear in which the chocolate filling is not too rich and nicely offset by the fresh pear.

The Drink
Only the best Arabica beans are used for the coffee (£1.50-£3.20), which include espressos, cappuccinos, Americanos and macchiatos. There’s also a list of monorigini - top of the range coffees that are strong (Santos), sweet (Colombia), sweet and spicy (Guatemala), or sweet and strong (Costa Rica). They can be served with or without cream or ice cream, flavoured, shaken with ice or decaffeinated. Tea and hot chocolate are also available along with soft drinks, waters, juices and the most delicious smoothies. Those made from red and green apples and melon, carrot, apple and grapes are particularly refreshing. You can almost feel them doing you good.

The Last Word
Eating today is often done on the run, so you should consume only the best. La Bottega del Caffe ensures you do, making even a quick snack a meal to remember.
