Love is all around at La Bottega Del Buon Caffè this Valentine’s day. It’s in the air, it’s in the exquisitely designed interior, the flickering candle-light and the resplendent flower arrangements. It’s on the faces of the highly trained and welcoming staff who will treat you and your beloved to a unique dining experience, but most of all it’s in the food.


Taste for yourself the artistry and sophistication of La Bottega’s seven-course Valentine’s Farm-to-Table dégustation menu lovingly and thoughtfully crafted by head chef Erez Ohayon and the whole La Bottega team to celebrate the occasion. 



The unique Michelin-starred La Bottega del Buon Caffè Valentine Menu is meticulously balanced offering samplings of soft salt cheese, langoustine and foie gras to begin. A refined pasta dish featuring coniglio alla cacciatora and a meltingly delicious risotto accented with wild herbs, sheep kefir, lemon sauce and almond elevate the event still further. For the climactic moment there is a hay-smoked pigeon breast lusciously accompanied by beetroot and fermented blueberries. 



The secret dessert, prepared by the expert team of La Bottega, will conclude the evening on a wonderfully sweet note.


Of course, the wine will also flow, like poetry. Each glass having been carefully chosen, the trusted in-house sommelier to complement and highlight the artisanal brilliance of each dish. This very special dining experience is being offered at 185 euro per person, including wine, or 135 euro without wine pairing.



The ultimate in elegance and intimacy, the private dining room is also available at a cost of 350 euro. What a wonderful way to express your love or indeed ask that magical question?
