(We really do)

We just want to hug you and introduce you to our mamma in Italy.
Our mamma always told us "think before you open your mouth'
Obviously these people did not get mamma's memo!
(Any reference to any person or episode is not accidental, we just don't know their names or we would definitely tell you)


Q. Thirty dollars for a large Margherita!? That is crazy.
A. No wait, it gets even better, it's thirty three with the taxes, and it doesn't come with ranch sauce either.
Q. I'm not going to pay thirty dollars for a pizza, it's too much.
A. We agree with you, and in fact see all these people eating pizza at our tables? They are all taking advantage of our easy Botto pizza financial plan
Q. What is it?
A. Well. Get a pizza today with zero down payment and with 12 easy monthly payments of $2.99 with zero interest you may be able to enjoy  one of our crazy expensive pizzas in just a few minutes. It all depends on how good your credit is.
Q. Are you serious?
A. Absolutely, and if you apply in the next five minutes we will include a portable pizza slicer for free.
Q. Are you going to run my credit for a pizza?
A) Only if you want it, we won't insist.
Q. I think this is a strange place, I better go somewhere else.
A. No wait, we also have another plan if your credit is not that great, you'll be approved in just minutes.
Q. No I think I'll go.
A. ( We could go on for hours)

This is the first time that someone made it to the village idiot even before he got to talk.
After few awesome manoeuvres with his car, he made the perfect Italian parking just right out of our door. Bravo!
A picture is worth a thousand words.

Q. Wild boar fettuccine?  Is it really wild?
A.  Can you keep a secret?
Q. Sure.
A. That wild boar wasn't really wild, it was one of our friend's pets that unfortunately passed away peacefully and we thought it would be a nice gesture to make some nice meat sauce with it.
A. Is it really good?
Q. Yes.
A. Ok I'll try it.
Q. God bless you.

Q. Are you guys open this weekend for brunch?

A. Me too.
Q. Why don't you guys make the pizza like them?
A. No one can make the pizza as good as they do
Q. Did you guys tried to make it like they do?
A. We tried for years and years but we just can't get it right.

Q. Is your basil pesto made with a lot of basil?
A. Yes is pretty much mostly basil.
Q. Can you make it without?
A. No really
Q. But I really like have pesto without basil many restaurant do it when I ask.
A. We can certainly do the tomato sauce without tomato, the meatballs with the balls on the side and fettuccine Alfredo without Alfredo
but no basil pesto without pesto
Q. Well I guess I'll take my business elsewhere
A. Maybe in some place where they make the basil pesto without basil
Q. Exactly

Q. Can I make a reservation for Christmas eve?
A. No I'm afraid we are closed on Christmas eve.

you can also make a double reservation any time for Cristnmas day as will be closed that day too.
Q. So if we come you are going to be closed?
A. (This conversation lasted for quite a while and at the end we were not sure ourselves if Botto would be closed on Christmas eve)
