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.

Fantastic hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant. The menu is limited to a few different starters and pasta dishes. The ingredients were fresh and the pasta homemade. Everything was very well prepared and well worth the wait!
The space is very small, which in my opinion makes it quite charming. I would avoid going there with a group larger than 4 people tho.
The service was as good as it gets...more
I havent written about this place yet when its one of my favourite.
Maybe deep down I wanted to keep it as a secret hehe!
this place is a small restaurant and delicatessen, i've just been to dinner here (MANY TIMES) but they also do good sandwich and salads at lunch.
In a nutshell: delicious, FRESH food, bigquantities, good prices, nice italian service, cute and cosy setting.

I second Stephy S. - I want to move in here.
Small, cozy, beautiful, delicious, kind, fresh, amazing.
Staff are so friendly and inviting. They brought over a chalk board with a list of 4 or 5 pasta dishes for the day and all sounded incredible. I chose the orecchiette with broccoli, olives and tomatoes. It was just perfect. They pile olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh pepper and fresh...more

This is the perfect lunch spot for eat in or take away. Rather than Pret or Eat, this place is an authentic Italian bottega with fresh veg, cheese and breads everyday. Their sandwiches are to die for, and are only 3.50 and can be freshly made in minutes. I'd say it's as close to simple Italian foods as it gets, and the staff is lovely and there is always a new salad or side plate to try....more
