An Italian restaurant in Birmingham - Bottega Prosecco Bar

Experience authentic Italian food, wine and atmosphere at the Bottega Prosecco Bar located within Resorts World Birmingham

Recently I’ve spent some time away travelling in America and China, so sadly I missed my mom’s birthday. But to make up for it, when I got back from my travels I brought my mom to Resorts World Birmingham so she could do a spot of outlet shopping. After wondering the shops for a while and buying a few, home, beauty and fashion pieces, it was time for food. As it was my mom’s first time at the resort, I wanted to take her somewhere special as a belated Birthday surprise, so we went to the Bottega Prosecco Bar.

Upon entering we were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our floor to ceiling lake view table. We were then accompanied with a glass of the Gold Prosecco, which has a lovely fruity taste. The menu is broken down into starters, share plates, small plates and large plates. So we just ordered everything that took our fancy and shared the meals together so we got a taste of everything.

We started with the ‘Bruschetta’, the assorted bruschetta came with pachino cherry tomatoes and basil, tagglasca olive paste and mozzarella. This meal was perfect for me as the bruschetta had all my favourite toppings on and the Gold Prosecco complimented the flavours and textures of the starter.

A visit to Italy wouldn’t be complete without having pizza, so we had ‘Estiva’ an artisan pizzette with mozzarella, pachino cherry tomatoes and basil leaves.

Next up was a beautifully presented plate of ‘Gamberoni Piccanti’. It came with succulent king prawns on pugliese bread with chili and lemon. This meal tasted incredible, I’ve never had anything quite like it before, it was delicious.

As a little surprise, my mom was presented with a mouth-watering creamy lemon sponge cake with strawberries and blueberries. It was delectable, we were so tempted to ask for seconds.

Bottega has an authentic true Italian dining feel that we both really enjoyed.  The menu also comes with a section which recommends ‘The Perfect Match’ drink, to complement each meal.

We visited Bottega on a Sunday, and it was a lovely way to finish the weekend off by sipping on Prosecco and eating delicious Italian food. All while sitting back enjoying the superb service and views of the lake. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and my mom thoroughly enjoyed her belated Birthday surprise.
