Fancy some Italian fine dining ‘down the ditch’? look no further than the hidden gem that is Bottega Prelibato on Rivington Street. I was fortunate enough to enjoy the pleasure of having a meal at this fine Italian eatery thanks to the lovely people at Base Property, after having been a monthly competition winner.
Bottega Prelibato was established in 2008 and reflects co founders Gianfillipo and Andrea’s passion for food and arts. The restaurant quickly became very popular amongst those that live and work in Shoreditch. The restaurant is renowned for its lively atmosphere largely due to the welcoming atmosphere and basement art gallery.
As you enter the restaurant staff are very welcoming and friendly as they show you to your seats and ensure you are comfortable. Their food range includes fresh Italian products with a homemade feel. You are treated to a truly unique experience as their lunch time and evening menu changes every day and the polite staff take the time to explain the day’s menu and what is included in each item.
For starters I enjoyed the goats cheese and peppers which was simply sublime, the goats cheese and peppers was prepared to perfection. Goats cheese is often one of those dishes that can become very overpowering, but the dish had the perfect classic goats cheese taste, whilst remaining light and fluffy.
The main dish of sea bass fillet and baby squids was simply to die for, the sea bass had such a beautiful soft texture that literally melted in your mouth. Portion sizes are generous without leaving you feeling to full for dessert. The restaurant is also very reasonably priced considering the super high quality of the food, one could easily enjoy a meal a full 3 course meal for around £25 – 30 per head and I guarantee it will be worth every penny.
