Welcome to the
Cedar Falls Brown Bottle

We’ve been serving delicious Italian food and making memories in the Cedar Valley for more than 50 years. In fact, we’ve been the go-to destination for a fun night out since 1972. From Waverly to Denver, Evansdale to Waterloo, our customers have made us part of their traditions. We love sharing your memories!

Whether it’s family night or date night, we’ve got your table waiting.

Locally-owned and operated.
We believe fresh, local and homemade are the key ingredients to success. Come enjoy dinner with us!

“This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the Cedar Valley. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The food is amazing. Try the lasagna!”

Great food, great atmosphere, and great service! They absolutely have the best lasagna, the best mashed potato casserole, and their ravioli with meat sauce even beats their lasagna. “

“Italian to the max. The food is always good. This family owned spot is perfect for a casual or special evening out. Their pizza is great. Spaghetti, vegetable or full meat lasagna, salads, bread….always perfect as is the service.”

“If you want really good Italian food, the Brown Bottle is certainly the place to go. Really nice atmosphere, nice but also casual. The food was excellent. Had the seafood lasagna and chili pepper penne pasta. Both very good.”
