La Bottega Enoteca – 4-Course Sunday Brunch, Go With An Empty Stomach

The friend wanted to try the brunch menu at La Bottega and since it was her birthday, we gladly obliged. But what started as brunch became breakfast, lunch and dinner for some of us cos it was just too much food. lol. I’ve been to La Bottega previously for lunch and it was already a struggle. This brunch was testing my limits. Priced at $98++ per adult, diner can pick any 4 course off their 22-items menu. And since there were 6 of us, we told them we would have everything on the menu 😀




Mesclun Salad, Charred Artichoke, Ricotta, Croutons



Robiola, Roasted Datterino Tomato, Basil, Pine Nuts

I preferred the robiola to the ricotta for its texture. But their cheese and tomatoes were really good



Smoked Caciocavallo, Chilli, Honey, Parsley


Pan-Fried Cheese from Dolomites

The pan-fried cheese was the crowd’s favourite. Definitely a must-order. The Caciocavallo on the other hand, was well okay I guess. lol. I mean if you had to pick one, you know which one to go for



Iberico Coppa, White Pizza, Pickles



Australian Angus Home Cured Bresaola, Parmigiano Reggiano 24 Months, Organic EVO “II Fattore”

The bresaola was worth a try too. It was nicely cured and the Parmesan further brought out the flavours when you paired them together



Red Capsicum, Tuna Bottarga

Oh these calamari was amazing. Enough said


Vitello Tonnato

Duch Veal, Tuna, Organic Olive Oil


Focaccia di Recco Tartufo $58

We added on the focaccia based on a friend’s recommendation. It was good. The aroma and taste of the truffle on the freshly baked bread was delightful. But on hindsight, we probably shouldn’t have ordered that cos there was too much food at the end



San Marzano DOP, Buffalo Mozzarella, Basil, Organic EVO “4 Contrade”


Fungi e Mortadella

Fiordilatte, Mushrooms, Mortadella, Parmigiano Reggiano 24 Mths, Fresh Basil


Marinara: San Marzano DOP, Garlic, Anchovies, Olives, Oregano, Organic EVO “4 Contrade”

Parma: San Marzano DOP, Fiordilatte, Rocket, Parma Ham, Parmigiano Reggiano 24 Mths



San Marzano DOP, Fiordilatte, Parmigiano Reggiano 24 Mths, Home Made Salame


I would pick the mozzarella, mushroom and parma as my favourite. I’m not a fan of pizza but I would eat the pizza here anytime. The crust done so thin and well you need to give it a try


Pappardelle Salsiccia E Porro

Homemade Pappardelle, Sausage, Leek, Parmigiano Reggiano 24 Mths

I call this ba chor mee, Italian style. Love the texture and doneness of the pasta and the flavourful sausage pairing


Spaghetto Della Mamma

Spaghetto Pastificio Graziano, Sicilian Tomatoes, Basil, Organic EVO “4 Contrade”

Least favourite out of all, personal preference


Scialatielli Allo Scoglio

Homemade Scialatielli, Mixed Seafood, Organic EVO “II Fattore”

The seafood one was pretty good too. The flavours of the seafood sauce was evenly coated on each strand and love the generous portion of seafood in this dish


Guancia Brasata

Braised Australian Beef Cheek w Polenta from Belluno

Beef cheeks so tender it fell apart easily. And the richness of the sauce that went along with it was amazing


Porchetta Arrosto

Slow Cooked Spanish Pork Belly w Wild Fennel

The execution of this pork belly was done really well. Crust so crisp you can literally hear the crack when you slice it apart. If you love pork belly, you would probably enjoy this dish


Cartoccio Di Pesce

Fish of the Day Baked in Paper w Southern Italian Flavours

Least favourite out of all, more so cos of the olives. Well, it’s an acquired taste. I didn’t acquire the taste. lol But the fish itself was cooked nicely


Tiramisu Classico


Traditional Neapolitan Ricotta Cake


Sorbet: Chocolate, Lemon, Strawberry, Pistachio

By the time we hit desserts, we were really struggling. 3 bottles, x drinks and 24 items later, we rolled out of the door. I think we had an overdose of carbs. It was a good meal with enjoyable company though, just a little too much for us to handle
