Embracing the beauty of simplicity, Farmer’s Bottega in Mission Hills is a unique neighborhood eatery focused on delivering farm-to-table rustic Mediterranean food.
Upon entering the intimate eatery, the vintage décor creates a farmhouse ambiance. From a treadle sewing machine to a 40-year-old table-top recovered from the ocean, the warm details of this restaurant radiate authenticity. The Edison bulbs, dimly glowing from iron chandeliers and hallowed wine barrels, produce a welcoming and familiar atmosphere.
Staying true to his Sicilian roots, owner and chef Alberto Morreale has created a unique menu, blending traditional Italian and modern-American cuisines into one-of-a-kind dishes. Menu items are characterized as Modern Americana-Italiano cuisine, and include a simple Heirloom Tomato Flatbread to Flat Iron Pork.
Farmer’s Bottega also offers a wide variety of all-natural dishes, sure to satisfy every palate. Running his restaurant on the motto, “Food doesn’t need to be complicated, but it’s important to know where it comes from,” Morreale dedicates his time to finding healthy, organic produce from local farms as well as cage-free, hormone-free meats. Pair your dish with a glass of wine off of the extensive wine list that highlights vinos from the vineyards of Napa Valley to the rolling hills of Tuscany and everywhere in between.
Farmer’s Bottega also offers a garden-like outdoor patio that pairs with their all-natural menu. A cool breeze and the taste of sunshine can be enjoyed in this garden-filled escape that will make for a refreshing springtime experience. At night, surround yourselves with outdoor lighting and heaters that will make for a pleasantly relaxed evening meal.
