Great food and a menu different from the average pizza and pasta place so thanks for this! Hard surfaces meant music backdrop intruded in conversation at times. Reception at door dismissive and service once seated rather slow. No drinks orders taken for 25 minutes after arrival. Pace picked up once starters delivered.

Very convenient to where we were staying. Warm welcoming staff and the restaurant was obviously very popular. It turned out that they were offering a 15% discount on the evening we were there. My husband really enjoyed his pizza and the staff were very apologetic when my dish was not as requested. Not keen on the rather modern jazz music.

Prompt, efficient, friendly service. I enjoyed my pasta dish, the green beans added a welcome crunch. The lemon posset was delicious. We had no idea that Cotto was there and are glad that we have found it.

First visit and first day of 10pm curfew. Thought all handled really well. Only slight negative was the cocktails which arrived after we had almost finished out starter when we really wanted them as a drink first.

A wonderful meal in a safe environment on what was a busy evening. Staff worked hard to ensure all needs were met for the customers in what is new and challenging times for restaurants. Food was excellent and the drinks range was vast and to our tastes. We were not hurried in our meal and timing was great for us to leave at 9.45. Would recommend.

This was the second time we have been to Cotto and once again we had a lovely meal with some different delicious italian food, the restaurant is lovely and we were in the garden area which has been beautifully done. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the dishes.

We were visiting Hereford for the weekend and choose Cotto due to its proximity to our hotel. We were sat in what I would describe as a covered outside area, the wooden wall had a hole in it which got draughty as the night went on. If we went again we would request an inside table. The service was great the staff were warm and friendly. Our waitress was lovely and nothing was too much trouble for her. The food was excellent other than the chicken one of us had which was flavourless but everything else was lovely and full of flavour. The chicken certainly wouldn’t have put us off going to Cotto again, the rest of the meal was lovely and the pizza wow!
