Since the Romans left, the Italians have been operating a policy of conquering the world's palate, plate by plate, and traditionally-run family restaurants like Cotto are their failsafe. The welcome is unfailingly warm here, the decor is authentic in feel, with murals on the walls, and the pleasures of the table are taken seriously indeed. Cotto is a 5-minute walk from the London Eye and the Aquarium, perfect for before or after family outings and it's also very popular with business customers during the week. There's live music on offer, too. As for the menu, try classic Tricolor salad to start, one of more than a dozen pastas, like Spaghetti carbonara, and a main course of simply and beautifully grilled Sirloin steak. Or just opt for a pizza and be happy!

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.

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 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!
