La Bottega only opened in Teddington at the end of 2010 but feels like it has with us for much longer! You are always guaranteed a friendly welcome here as well as delicious delicatessen food – cheese & meats, olives and fresh pasta, fine wine, olive oil, desserts and more! Shelves are stuffed full of high-end food, ingredients and wine that local and visiting Italians recognise from back home.
Not sure what to buy or which ingredients go with others? Just ask! The Bottega team are only ever too happy to help discuss recipes or spend some time chatting in English or Italian!
The sweet and cake creations are well-known around town – including the classic Victoria Sponge, the indulgent double-baked Chocolate, delicious Red Velvet and popular Blueberry. Believe it or not, all are made personally by Roberto (the man of many ovens), using fresh ingredients including over 350 free range eggs per week from a chicken keeper here right in Teddington!
Recipes for the desserts and cakes are always being refined so feedback what you think and you will play a part in making it taste even better next time.
La Bottega also caters for lunches, parties and gourmet food evenings on site or in your own home.

An early prototype of Roberto’s famous Blueberry cake. Mmmm Blueberry.
Concentrate, here comes the science. We find out how the chocolate cake is baked to remain soft in the middle but crisp on the outside. Shhh it’s a secret.
