Excellent home-feel dining! Great for celiacs!
Cotto Italian Restaurant. My husband and I recently had lunch at Cotto. We live in the area and decided to try Cotto for a mid-week lunch. The owner/manager was very helpful, engaging and attentive. We had a lovely lunch. Great Italian food at a reasonable rate. I would definitely return.
Okey food, great with all gluten free options.
Extremly warm (hot) restaurant, which led us to leave before dessert.
Don’t ever underestimate the need to start the AC!!!!
Do you have it for other reasons than to use it, sell it!!
A warm welcome, fast and attentive service, tasty traditional Italian at a reasonable price. A good place for an informal meal before a show at the Old Vic (5 minutes on foot).
Very timely and friendly service, catering for all sorts and nice genuine Italian feel.
No recommendation here for this place. Firstly we were shown to a table in a small alcove at the back of the restaurant which lacked any atmosphere. This was annoying because I had made a booking and there were tables available in the main part of the restaurant. I asked the waiter but he didn’t seem interested and laughed it off
The food was ordinary, nothing special so was a disappointing night.
Food was delicious. Gluten free options on most of the dishes (but not always available). Not many customers during lunchtime so lacked the normal Italian buzz. I would heartily recommend it to any Celiac as the owner is a fellow sufferer who ensures there is an option for you.
We had a great authentic Italian meal here. The lasagna and spaghetti with bolognese sauce were delicious. Their olives it’s bread are spicy and unique. My wife went back a second time to eat here during our 5 day trip to London. Would recommend their house red wine. The owner was very friendly and made sure we were enjoying the food.
Great little place, attentive staff and good food at a reasonable price for central London.
Fantastic food, super wait staff the owner is a true delight, and the food is excellent. Love the casual atmosphere
Great for gluten free diners. The owner also has celiac and almost every dish on the menu offers a gluten free option. Limited drink menu if you aren’t a wine drinker.
Visited Cotto whilst staying in London for Chelsea Flower Show. Having Cealiac desease and needing gluten free food It is great to see a restaurant that ,apart from a couple of dishes , offering a gluten free version of all of the rest of their menu.
Also such a happy restaurant run by Italian father and son with all the cheek banter that happens in a family run restaurant. Wish we had place like this where we live in Southampton.
Always good food good service a proper Italian restaurant run by Italians 👍
We had a great dinner with our 2 kids (5 and 9). Pizza was tasty, pasta were very nice and our kids shared a great and tasty gluten free pizza. One of our daughter has celiac disease and such place with tons of gluten free options is the real paradise for her. Thanks Cotto for this great family dinner!
Went with a big group. We were well served and happy.
We went to Cotto on the last day of our London vacation, and we couldn't have been happier with the food and the overall experience. One of those so-rare genuine family restaurants with fantastic food. Wish we could have gone back again.
Meh, nothing special. The tiramasu was especially banal. Sort of place you can imagine Gordan Ramsay tearing apart.
Handmade gluten free pasta, including filled ravioli!!! Tge gf pizza crust was fluffy; not the flat, crunchy crust we are usually stock with. The owner has been celiac for 30 years so he understands what is necessary to keep his celiac customers free from illness while still having tasty, authentic food. The bread was out of this world and there were multiple gf dessert options. My only recommendation would be to have more dairy free/casein free options, though that is quite difficult at an Italian restaurant. All in all, a great meal for my family and I.
Great Italian food and service, worth checking out, plenty of gluten free options.
We arrived 5 mins late for our table, to find that it had been given to other diners. The owner then tried to hurry up other diners to get a table free for us - we left before they made matters worse. Would avoid
We had a great time, a good welcome, good menu choice and the food was great too. Value was fine so we would definitely go back. Reasonably well located for us, so easy to get to.
WE had a lovely evening with lots of GF choices. The Italian owner made us feel very welcome. Great house wine too!
Well-priced, big selection, friendly hosts. Would happily go again.
We had a lovely time at Cotto, the food was great and the portions were super generous! This is one of the only places which offers almost everything on the menu as a gluten free option! Would definitely go again :)
Booked for the gluten free options as my companion is celiac. She was particularly impressed by the many options on offer and thought that this was the best restaurant offering gluten free meals that she had encountered.
The food was delicious and the service was impeccable, and we would highly recommend a visit - she did in fact go back the following evening, such was her enthusiasm for the menu.
Oldlooking restaurant, old furniture and when we enterd they couldn’t find our reservation. We were put in the back, in the corner, looking to the wall and without heating it was very cold. When we complained about it they gave us the answering that the cold was because of the weather....
The average food, covered with a supermarket-actioncorner-containerfood tomatosauce got quickly cold aswell. Costed us £ 80,-Whoeaaa! The only thing that made us glad was that we coul leave!
Our second visit and a bit less busy than previously. The usual cheery welcome, but this time we got more of the back story on the extensive range of gluten for options. Service better than previously, due to staff being less pressured. The food was good as usual and the drinks reasonably priced. We'll be back.
The restaurant is a 5 min walk from Westminster bridge. The gluten free food was very good as was the selection offered. It's a typical Italian restaurant but offers good gluten free Italian food not just pizza
Best Italian food and AMAZING Gluten Free food. Simply the best
Really like this place. Great charm, lovely house red and attentive service.
Very welcoming, efficient service and food was good. Reasonably priced and great for gluten free.
The restaurant had a lovely family feel and great ambience. I was extremely impressed with the gluten free options, however I had the gluten free pizza and couldn’t finish it as it was much too salty for my taste. I would still return and perhaps try the one of the other many options! I did really trust them to limit contamination which is extremely important for me.
Outstanding food, Outstanding Service! A+ experience at Cotto!
Nice place and clearly friendly and family run. Loads of gluten free options, but you pay for the pleasure- around a £2 premium! But great to be able to eat and drink (Peroni) totally gluten free, which is often difficult.
Probably some of the best Italian I have ever eaten. I will go back even if its out of the way next time im in London!
A rude and unwelcoming owner, cold food and slow service made this an occasion not to be repeated. Strange that there are so many glowing reviews of this place on Open Table, either a lot of people have extremely low standards or the reviews are fake. When searching for decent restaurants In future we will pay more attention to the negative posts! No way could Cotto be recommended to discriminating diners. The Three Stags just up the road saved the evening and we enjoyed a welcoming atmosphere, great pizzas and excellent service there.
We dined at Cotto five years ago, while visiting from the States. Our family has a number of food restrictions (celiac, nut allergies), so we were thrilled once we dined at this restaurant. Fantastic gluten-free pasta and bread. We spoke directly with the owner - he was great at steering us the right way, and was extremely friendly and helpful.
Earlier this week, my daughter and I just visited London again, and decided to go back to the restaurant. I'm pleased to say that we were just as happy with the food quality as we were on our first trip. It was great to catch up with the owner again, as well.
I would enthusiastically recommend Cotto to anybody.
Great Gluten Free Options
My daughter had a great gluten-free pizza. My son ate regular pizza which was great too! we had wonderful pasta and starters
Nice Hospitality by the Italian owner
Simple and nice Italian family atmosphere
Good value for money
Wonderful authentic restaurant in Lambeth - loved the menu and the wine. Will be returning soon.
