About La Bottega and reviews

La Bottega, which means "the store" in Italian, was created in March of 2003 by Giuseppe and Marisa Ruta. La Bottega is a full service restaurant with a strong take-out element; however it is by design kept small to replicate the feel of an Italian Trattoria.

La Bottega offers a dine-in and take-out menu consisting of over 60 Panini and 25 Salad, selections, weekly lunch, dinner, "dinner in the box" and a specials menus along with an off-premise catering menu. What was once known as the Italian Gourmet "store" is now a fun-cozy-romantic Italian Trattoria, with a warm welcoming atmosphere in which our guests feel "at home".

Currently there are four La Bottega restaurants and the fifth is due to open in August. The original location, Garden City South, is owned by Giuseppe & Marisa Ruta. Rockville Centre was opened in the summer of 2006 and is owned by Maria & Family.

Oceanside location opened the summer of 2007 with partner Wilson Euceda. The other two locations are cooperatively owned by business associates of Giuseppe Ruta. Joe Mauro opened 3 years ago in Carle Place and Joe Artusa in the spring of 2007 in Merrick.

La Bottega was created to introduce the authentic tastes of Italy with an American flair. We feature over 60 gourmet Panini and 25 salads, plus extended menus showcasing each location's individuality. Our growing family of restaurants is proud of its old-world commitment to unyielding quality, made-to-order freshness and incomparable flavor.

Whether it's dine-in, take-out, delivery or catering for any occasion, La Bottega is the perfect place to enjoy the perfect Panini ... and more!

We love the paninis and salads. They are VERY accommodating and friendly! A wonderful local spot for lunch or a light dinner.

Food made us sick 20 minutes after eating it. Red pears were brown inside. Lettuce was wilted. Endives were also brown inside. Fish was cold. This salad must have been made a long time ago. I thought La Bottega would be serving fresh food, not...

Although a small venue, their salads are superb! I had the Salmon de Pere. Fresh spinach leaves with apple slices, walnuts, roasted beets, grapevine tomatoes and broiled salmon. I opted to have the lime vinaigrette instead of the raspberry vinaigrette . The salad selections are...
