Bread was charged. Extra bread was not gratis.
Sword fish was not great.
Pasta dishes were amazing
Excellent genuine Italian. We went for pre-theatre at 6pm and by 6.15 it was pretty busy so make sure you book! Friendly reception, nice big bread tray and really good food. The home made pastas are very good indeed, and a half bottle of verdicchio was just right. Highly recommended!
Because they have a gluten free options and also regular menu.
Lasagne was burnt. Naked women on the walls. Lady on the counter had her face mask on. That does not go well with enjoying food in a restaurant. Ambiente was nice
It is the first time I have been to Cotto and took a chance at recommending it to friends for our next place to meet and catch up. The food was excellent, and the service very good until the bill was given to us without waiting for us to ask for it. It made us feel unwelcome, were being rushed out of the restaurant and the owner stood by our table speaking in Italian in a deliberately loud voice to a couple sitting on the table next to us to the point where we could not hear each other when trying to have a discussion. It made us feel very uncomfortable and ruined our four monthly get together to catch up with with each others lives. However, in spite of this, we very much enjoyed the food and the fact that gluten free choices were available for one of my friends was refreshing and they would like to return for our next get together.
Cotto is a great little restaurant and perfect for anyone who is coeliac/ following a gluten-free diet and is bored of all the usual chains! Cotto offers an extensive menu and a lovely homely, family-run vibe. Easy to get to from Waterloo station too. I really recommend this restaurant.
My wife and I stopped in for dinner during a recent holiday trip. It seemed less touristy then most places in the area. Food was good and staff was friendly and attentive. I'd definitely dive there again.
They served bread as starters, but they charged without informing us of the cost. Also the bread was like rock and was hard on the teeth.
Quick service . And full gluten free options. 5 of us were all very happy with the meal. Would definitely recommend for groups with one GF members as there was no compromise on the other meals . And everything had a GF options.
Awesome Italian dinner!
I love coming to this place. The food is always amazing.
Very nice and small family run place. It feels you are in Italy
We just love this place. The owner is so awesome and it’s great to get legit GF food that taste like regular homemade Italian. And the prices are great for how good the food is. Go try it out!
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!
