Winter is here
July when the days slowly grow longer, but the weather gets colder, is just another reason to change our seasonal menu.
It's truffle season in the highlands and we're priveleged to have access to locally grown truffles from Exeter. We've been playing in the kitchen and July brings on a feast of delicious truffle enhanced recipes as well as taking advantage of gorgeous lemons in their peak.
Our Eggplant parmigiana remains on the menu with the cooler weather, This is unctuous with buffalo mozarella, fresh basil and eggplant melting into perfection.
We're bringing a scallop entree to the table and a scallop and lemon risotto for mains.
Pizza Limone makes a return in the cold months. A warm treat of bity parmesan and zingy lemon with olives and fresh rosemary. Try it with some truffle salamai if you need meat!
The L'Agnello will stay, but only for July - marinated lamb with spinach, pine nuts, onion fresh rocket and pomegranate seeds.
And a new pasta hits the specials board to celebrate the joys of truffles and lemons - Truffle and lemon sauce with eschallots and olive oil. Superbly simple and full of flavour.
Winter may be upon us, but the variety doesn't stop at Bottega B in July. Book a table now.

Dining in the time of Covid
Our small space can only fit twenty people and maintain appropriate social distancing. We are open for reservations, but seating times are limited and we will likely have tables booked before or after you.
If we are strict with our seating times, please be understanding that this is the only way we can make our little space viable under the circumstances.
We are Covid compliant in all our practices.
We are recording names and phone numbers of all diners over the age of 16 via the Service NSW app, which will be a requirement of your visit with us.
Hand santisier is available on every table and at the counter.
Please reserve a table by calling us or via an email. We will respond as soon as possible.
Here's some information on how Bottega B is responding to the increasing restrictions around Covid-19.
As of 26 June, we can have a maximum of 25 people in our restaurant area to satisfy the 4m2 space requirement.
We can have eighteen to twenty people in our dining room on a regular basis. We can usually accommodate 4 people in our takeaway waiting area, but if the marked spaces are occupied we ask that you wait outside.
For private functions, when no takeaway is offered and staff numbers are limited, we can seat 25 people maximum.
Wearing a face covering is mandatory in NSW at the moment, so please hvae a face mask with you and wear it when you enter our premises.
Check-in is mandatory, even when collecting takeaway, so please bring your mobile phone and check-in upon entry. Don't forget to check out! We hope you understand, and while you have the right to refuse to provide the information, we will then be unable to serve you in our restaurant.
We are regularly sanitising the counter, EFTPOS machine, door handles, light switches and taps throughout our service period. We encourage our customers to use our handwashing facilities at the end of the hallway or to take advantage of the hand sanitiser provided at the counter and on every table.
