Pretty disappointing, not worth a visit
Lovely little restaurant with big promise but totally fails to deliver. We just popped in for a quick bowl of pasta on a recommendation from friends who recently visited. There are about 7 or 8 pasta dishes on the menu and you can choose which type of pasta to have with each dish, which would be a capital offence to any Italians as certain pastas only go with certain sauces, but as they say, ‘whatever’! The pasta is all hand made in the restaurant and it’s fair to say that it was pretty good, cooked al dente and it had a nice texture. Where it all went wrong was with the accompanying sauces. I had the nduja sausage and my wife had the tomato and ricotta; and sadly both were insipid, hugely overly salted, watery and tasteless. Really a huge disappointment. They have a decent wine list, all Italians, and we found a very enjoyable southern Italian white for IDR500 which was not bad value for Bali. The restaurant scene in Bali is really pretty good, there is huge competition and unless you are pretty special it’s going to be a struggle. This place really needs to up its game.....

Authentic homemade pasta
Me and my girlfriend had an amazing homemade fresh pasta and it was simply amazing. Living away from home (Italy) make you missing some simple and genuine taste of home and in Bottega Italiana you are going to be sure that everything match to the expectations. Cooking time is perfect, al dente as it is supposed to be, homemade ingredients as ‘burrata’ and ‘duck ragout’ are real tasty, and the staff is really professional and really friendly. As well you can see the chef preparing the pasta in front of you which I personally think it is a very good point, there are no secrets in how your amazing meal is prepared. Do not hesitate to chose where to go for a real taste of Italian food, ‘Bottega Italiana’ has to be your first choice!

I love the pasta!
My favourite is Tagliatelle with Nduja sauce. The pasta is cooked well. Not too soft and not too hard. Just simply the best for me. Been always coming back here when i am in Bali.
