Located on Bourke Street, Bottega is one of your best Italian options if you're roaming around the CBD. The soft leather seatings and comfortable vibe make it perfect for a romantic dinner or a few lunchtime drinks. Their three course lunch and pre-theatre special is a steal at just $55 per person. Sharing options include freshly shucked oysters and slow cooked pork and ham croquettes, while standout mains include house-made pappardelle with goat ragu; pan-seared snapper with zucchini flowers, roast truss tomato, prawns and aioli; and porcini and ricotta cannelloni with parmigiano reggiano, braised radicchio treviso and smoked mozzarella.
