Bottagra is a Mediterranean delicacy of cured tuna or melted roe lightly salted, pressed, and sundried, which is grated or shaved and served on pasta or salad. It has been an ancient tradition kept alive by Sardinian fisherman and now by chef-owner Carlo Carbonaro and Robert Vicari.
In their New Jersey-based restaurant and banquet hall, they offer a unique dining experience that adds a modern Mediterranean flair to traditional Italian cuisine. Their spacious dining rooms with mosaic-tiled walls and rich draperies in deep bronzes, golds, and chocolate colors offer New York City elegance with a distinctive feel suggestive of Tuscan Villas. Subtle, warm lighting and a gentle ambience means the evening can be wiled away in intimate conversation, or happily enjoyed with a wealth of friends and family. The atmosphere naturally complements an equally warm menu full of an extensive selection of seafood, meats, and pastas, as well as a raw bar and numerous salads, soups, and ever-classic Italian dishes such as the Margarita Pizza, Beef Carpaccio, and Spaghetti Bottagra. In addition, a thoughtful catering menu gives you all the choices you could imagine, and inspires brilliant evenings for to 150 people coupled with authentic Mediterranean fare. A full bar and extensive wine list offer the perfect pairs for any meal or event, highlighting Italian wines and in-house signature cocktails.
At Bottagra, the experience is about more than just the food. Come and enjoy the rich hospitality of Chef/Owner Carlo Caronaro and the entire staff, and make Bottagra your choice for dining, celebrating, and enjoying the finer things in life.
