Bottega Prelibato

Bottega Prelibato says ?

Bottega Prelibato restaurant and deli in London's Shoreditch is one of those very special places that, once you discover it, you're torn between keeping it to yourself and telling everyone you know. We're opting for the latter. Bottega Prelibato is a deli during the day and an intimate, authentically Italian restaurant in the evenings. The space is intimate and warm with the friendliest welcome you could imagine. Bottega Prelibato specialises in homemade fresh egg pastas, cured meats and charcuterie, pecorino cheese and a daily changing menu of seasonal specialities like tagliata Toscana and meat dishes like lamb shanks. You'll have to check the blackboards just like a rustic trattoria for the dishes of the day. The desserts are homemade, favourites like tiramisu, cakes and fruity flans. The wine list features reasonably-priced and fully-flavoured bottles from Tuscany, the Veneto, Puglia and Piemonte. The peerless alone coffee justifies a visit.

The first, and perhaps most irritating manifestation of this was the...

    Cook & Pour :: Bottega Prelibato, Italian on Rivington Street | Cook & Pour

    Shoreditch is local to me, so you will sense this is why I go out a lot around these parts. The convenience of hitting up a bar or restaurant after work and not having a major trek to go home, is very appealing.

    On one of my few lunch time ventures out of the office, a colleague recommended Bottega Prelibato. Say what? Yes, exactly, in Shoreditch there is a traditional sounding, non-East London trendy Italian restaurant. I have only ever been to Sicily, so cannot bet my life on the fact that this is “traditional” Italian, but it is certainly what I would imagine it to be. The quaint little place is on Rivington...
