I love coming to this place. The food is always amazing.
Very nice and small family run place. It feels you are in Italy
The food was okay, albeit overpriced but the service really wasn't very good. A 15% service charge was automatically added to the bill which, given the poor quality, was very presumptuous. I would expect 10-12.5% ordinarily. We felt rushed out despite the fact that the restaurant wasn't busy and our waiter wasn't very attentive. The food was overpriced for what it was and I wouldn't recommend or return myself.
Great food and staff made this a very enjoyable lunch. All options are available gluten free which was good for me but the standard versions I am told were also brilliant. Great Italian food!
Wonderful to find an authentic Italian restaurant with so many home-made gluten-free options.
Fantastic meal! Rivaled some of the best food we’ve had in Italy - and that’s not easy to do!
Amazing service and food. The authentic Italian experience.
Excellent gluten free options, the whole menu is taylored for those wanting gluten free. However even though the food is tasty, it’s not exceptional. Very homely. Good but not fantastic.
Excellent italian food, friendly service and a genuine athmosphere. We visited on a friday night, the restaurant was maybe half full. Very friendly service and extremely fast! I was surprised how quickly we got our food and have to say - IT WAS GOOD!
Definately a great place to go if you're looking for a genuine italian restaurant!
Food was amazing. I have many allergies and they couldn’t have been more accommodating. Will come back again often!
Fabulous service. Owner was so kind & made each guests visit special. Food was fabulous! I had the gnocchi & my husband had pizza. Wonderful experience!
Great find this place. Device excellent and very friendly and good excellent. We will be back. X
Had a really nice dinner at Cotto with a friend. The food was lovely and authentic Italian. The staff was welcoming and serviceminded and the atmosphere was nice. Great find close to Waterloo station - I will be back.
Authentic Italian food gluten free options knowledgeable & friendly service
Very pleasant meal at Cotto which would appear to be a well established family run Italian restaurant. Only complaint was my wife’s ravioli was slightly hard. Otherwise nothing else to find fault with.
Great as always, love eating at Cotto, Pasta is great and the service spot on
Male toilets clogged. Placed at the worst table, right by the cutlery (even though we were first customers of the evening). Offered bread, not told this would be charged. Food passable at best. Very much in a hurry to get us out and the next diners in - including the bill being presented un-asked for. Compulsory service charge. Vile.
Had read good reviews but out of a group of 4 only one person thought the food was ok. Rest of us did not enjoy the food. Wine was nice. Overpriced and disappointing overall. Would not recommend
Had dinner with a friend and it was fine though I was expecting better based on other reviews. We shared a pizza and a pasta dish, with a tiramisu for dessert. The owner is lovely, and the staff are ok, though it was a bit difficult to get a recommendation or much banter out of them! We got put in a poky little corner up the back too which wasn’t great.
Excellent staff, food was beautiful, service was also great, really lovely owner.
It is, not only for Gluten-free people an excellent Italian restaurant. Outstanding!
As good as any in Italy Great pasta dishes. Was in London for three nights and eat here twice
Cotto, is one of those gems, it doesn't look great from the outside but don't be put off walk in and get a great italian welcome, super service and fabulous food, I've been several times now and I love the place.
Meal was ok service good apart from the amount of time it took, 40 minute wait from starter to main. For an italian restaurant to have no pasta or pizza dishes on the set menu i found very strange, just fish or steak 🤷🏼♂️
It is hard to find a more authentic meal anywhere - the food is fantastic, as is the service and atmosphere. Pizza, pasta - can’t beat it. We went twice while in town - both amazing. Thank you!!!
Amazing restaurant with amazing genuine Italian food and staff! All the menu is gluten free, so it’s a paradise for gluten intolerant people!
Delicious food with extensive gluten free options (all their pasta and pizzas are available gluten free as well as several desserts) and the food was very nice. The atmosphere is quiet and traditional and the staff lovely. I’ll definitely go back!
After several days of eating at exclusive restaurants in London, we were just looking for some bread, pasta and a bottle of wine. We were thrilled to find this place just a few steps from our hotel.
We arrived early for our booking but it was not a problem for them. The menu was fantastic for the gluten free option for my husband. He said it was the best bread he had ever tasted and we both had the lasagne, which was lovely. Staff and service was first class. We cannot praise them enough.
True Italian experience. The owner is hands on here and makes sure everything runs smoothly. He has had Celiac disease for 30 years and takes gluten allergy seriously. Loved chatting with him! Delicious pasta and wide selection of gluten free menu items. Definitely going back!
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
