For over four decades, La Botte has been a staple of Willoughby’s dining scene, offering a taste of Italy in a friendly, family-run atmosphere.

Established in 1982,  by Ercole Perego, the focus on fresh, high-quality produce and classic Italian fare has ensured a warm and inviting experience for generations of patrons.

“At La Botte, we are very passionate about the quality of food and making people feel at home. We strive to provide our patrons with fresh, traditional home-style Italian cooking with friendly and efficient service allowing customers to enjoy their dining experience,” says Teresa, Ercole’s daughter.

“We’re a family-run restaurant, and we’re proud to have watched many families and generations grow over the past 37 years.”

Terissa and her husband, Shipon are now helping La Botte to continue into the next generation and continuing Ercole‘s legacy of good food, good wine and family-friendly service.

Popular dishes include the house-made lasagne, Spaghetti Porto Fino with fresh prawns, chilli, parsley and olive oil, the delicious and crispy pizzas, Gamberoni Diavola with king prawns, and of course, Tiramisu with Tia Maria liquor with marscapone, and Profiteroles served with dark hot chocolate.

Locals love their annual degustation and monthly themed dinners. The Sicilian and Umbrian nights, which showcase some of the region’s specialties like Swordfish wrapped in radicchio, Penne alla Norma, and Sicilian cannoli filled with ricotta and candied dried fruit and chocolate custard book out fast.

Beyond the delicious food and inviting ambience, La Botte’s longevity can be put down to its commitment to the local community. They are a familiar face in Willoughby, consistently providing a quality dining experience for residents for over 40 years! With its focus on fresh ingredients, classic Italian dishes, and warm hospitality, La Botte has cemented its place as a beloved establishment in Willoughby.
