Good Italian serve

Botticino will wow you with very good Italian food in Mumbai. Located within the Trident at BKC, it is fairly easy to reach. Loved the quail and the feta cheese roulade among the starters,We had wild mushroom Ravioli and it tasted just wow. Lasagne was good too. Tirimsu was the best one ever. I would eat here again. Must be one of the best italian restaurants in Mumbai

Nice Experience

Food that I ordered was delicious. I had ordered a Stringoli with pork sausage ragout. The sausages just melted in your mouth and the pasta was well cooked. The other dishes ordered were a sedani chicken and a wild mushroom agnoliti. The chicken dish was ok as the mint sauce was pretty over powering. The mushroom dish was again good and looked different from the standard fare one gets. Plates are extra-large and extra heavy with a small central portion in between. Now it's become the format in most high end restaurants. Ambience is nice and service was excellent even though there were a mix up with the menus as they had the old ones also still around.

Fantastic Dinner

We'd been there for dinner on the 14th of April 2014 and it was close to a flawless experience. The service was impeccable, pretty much close to the best I've seen in Mumbai, surpassing even the service at Oberoi which has normally set the bar for me. And the place looked quite full so kudos to the staff.

The food was excellent (quite a large vegetarian option so no trouble there) starting with the pan seared goat cheese with fig compote (a total highlight) to the tomato rigatoni and the goat cheese ravioli, both proving to be quite flavourful. We didn't get a chance to try any of the wines but I do plan on visiting again for that very reason. The Fruit punch recommended by the bartender however was quite nice.

The only suggestion I'd make is to maybe have a few more options for eggless desserts. However, even taking that into consideration, I'd still rate this as one of the finest restaurants for Italian food I've tried!

As far as the ambience, it pretty much conforms to most of the modern 5 Star Hotels so its really quite nice although it'd be a stretch to consider it romantic or so. If you come here for the food, it's well worth the visit.

Keep up the good work!

Okay food, nice ambience

Had dinner here on a Friday and the place was quite empty (so the service was superb). I ordered a Carpaccio appetiser, which was just about okay. I've had better. Went for Braised Pork as entrée and that was quite good, though the portion seemed rather small (maybe it was because of the huge plates they use!). The best was the dessert.. Ordered a Creme Brulee and it was one of the best I've had. But the best thing about this restaurant is its ambience. It's in an open area (no doors) on the first floor of the hotel and it feels really spacious, something rare in Mumbai. The place is well lit and the tables are widely spaced out so you can have a peaceful conversation over your meal.

Delicious Italian Cuisine

I've dined at Botticino a couple of times last year and enjoyed every moment of being there. From their parma tortellini to their famous red snapper to their petto di pollo alla griglia - every dish was so mouth-watering that I don't quite remember what I had for desserts (tiramisu and ice cream, I think). They have an excellent collection of grappa but since I don't drink alcohol, I didn't try it out. They gave me a tour of the restaurant - the décor is pleasing and it's a quiet place for dining, though expensive.

one of the mumbai's finest in italian

strategically located in BKC, Botticino is getting noticed by one and many.. food is great. especially the lamb rack with roasted potatoes. i order it every time i get to eat there. my other favorites include caprese salad, thincrust pizzas, antipastos, and soups... they have peroni beer and a huge wine cellar, but thats not the best thing.. the best thing is the Chef.. if you leave your plate partially finished, the chef comes from kitchen and asks if it wasnt OK, and if u say that it wasn't, he quickly cooks a small portion of whatever you fancy.. thats how you win the customers...

One Word: Disgusted

We visited Botticini yesterday to celebrate my hubbys 40th loandmark bday and it was the worst decision ever! The service levels are remarkably low; we waited almost 40 minutes to get our main course.. no recommendations on what else the chef can do in seafood etc; the menu is quite lousy in terms of many options esp in soups and appetisiers! To top it all the chkn clear soup as described to me by their staff didnt match with what came on the table!! My whole family was quite dissapointed with this whoel experience and to top it all : we had requested for a small bday cake if possible to get one.. and yes they got it right after we paid our bill and we almost geting ready to leave .. Moral of the story: think twice before you go to Botticin..

Nothing new

Other than the 20 or so minutes the waiter took to get our check, it was a good experience. But there is nothing new on the menu that would make this restaurant stand out among all the other options especially in the Bandra-Khar area. Definitely not recommended unless you are desperate to have Italian in the BKC area.

Great

A beautiful restaurant, delicious food and amazing desert! We were asked if we were celebrating anything special when we made a reservation and boy were we happy with the delic chocolate mousse cake! It was too big for the two of us so they packed it up for us.
Service is good as well! A winner!

Very dissapointed

After reading all the good reviews on this site, decided to check out the resturant, but the result was dissapointing. The only part that we agree with is staff, they were very well trained.
First of all, its too bright in the restaurant, I expected it to be more secluded. It reminded me of cafe, althought the posh one. Second, we thought the menu didn't portait an authentic italian...no osso buco, no saltimbocca, no anti pasta plates... And when we ordered, the food that came out, was the biggest dissapointment. We both had goose liver for the starter and it was undercooked. For the main course I had risotto. Couldn't even finish it, as the rice was sooo undercooked,so it didn't have that creamy taste( and the look) about it. My husband had seafood plater - tomato sauce it came with, overpowered the seafood. Because of all the above, decided to skip on dessert. But the chef, that came out to find out about my main, kindly sent us ice cream.
So, all in all decided that won't go back there

Saved the day

It was my birthday and I got stuck for 2 hours in horrendous traffic :( so it was quite late by the time I reached Trident with a damp mood.

Right from the valet who greeted us with a Namaste to the Restaurant Manager who conjured up a surprise cake when she discovered it was my birthday, every member of the staff in this place was absolutely passionate about customer satisfaction. The dinner at Botticino not only salvaged the night but also made it a memorable experience.

I don't believe I have experienced such delightful service EVER in India. The staff was enthusiastic yet not in your face and they were very candid with recommendations.

Our expectations were quite lifted (so was my mood) by the time our food arrived. And it did not disappoint! It was genuine Italian fare with right sized portions. The flavour of the Goats cheese was to die for and the presentation was very artistic as well.

The ambience in this place is great if you are looking to have a quiet private evening with that someone special - it is not noisy and tables are spaced out as you would expect in a restaurant of this class.

All in all, a great place - I am going back soon!

Amazing Italian Dining

The Ambience of this place is really nice and has a warm comforting feel; the table we were at was in a nice spacious corner. We went through the very authentic menu and after discussing a few items on the menu with the well informed and pleasant people waiting our tables ordered Grilled Veggies with Parmesan crisps. For drinks we ordered a lemon caprioska and a ginger ale, which were good. The ale was really nice just sweet enough, to let the flavors of ginger get noticed. The main course was a chicken stew and risotto. At this point I cannot go on without having mentioned the service that we were receiving was impeccable; the chef at Botticino needs to be given credit for the well prepared dishes. We ended our dinner with a warm chocolate pudding. This restaurant at the Trident is worth visiting for dinner; don’t stuff yourself too much with the contents of the bread basket even though the bread with caramelized onions is awesome. Townies anytime in the burbs should consider this place for the experience of authentic Italian food, great service and the ambience.

Still a long way to go

New hotel, new restaurant. Vetro is miles ahead of this one.

There were five of us - we decided to order three starters - one in prawns, one ham based and then the regular bruschetta. Note that the bruschetta is not on the menu, but you can ask for it.

This is where we ran into disappointment - it took about 45 minutes with repeated reminders to get the starters. The ham based one was good to taste, but the other two were no great shakes. In fact, the bruschetta was bad - the bread seemed ordinary, and the tomatoes were tasteless - I think Trats' bruschetta is way up there.

In the meanwhile, the drinks order consisted of white wine, beer, and single malts. The wine list is so-so, and they did not have stock of some single malts though it was on the menu. Tut-tut Trident - definitely not done.

For the main course, I decided to order a Risotto - which was very good. However, all of us observed that irrespective of the dish ordered, the quantity is pretty small - and since it is set in very large dishes, they appear even more inadequate.

Vetro used to also serve us an amouse-bouche, but it was missing here. Not sure if the restaurant forgot about this important point, or is it that the chef does not have the requisite skills.

Overall, I think while the main dishes are delicious, the quantity is inadequate. What really sucks is the very poor service.

The bill of Rs. 16,000 for five of us is slightly on the higher side - 3 starters/ appetizers, 5 main course dishes, 3 glasses of wine, 2 beers (pints), and 5 pegs of single malts.

I would have expected Oberoi/ Trident to dish out a much better dining experience.

Another shocker - the power went out for a couple of minutes in the entire hotel.
