Cotto is a very quaint and stylish Restaurant.
Me and my colleagues had an amazing time.
The food was lovely, however I did find one of The small dishes very overpriced. I ordered The Scallops as a set of 3 dishes, it was just under the £13 for the scallops and there was only 2 on the plate with the smallest side salad, I expected a little more for the price, though it was lovely.

Booked at very short notice and was not disappointed. Beautiful dining area and food. Floor staff were friendly and helpful. We did not feel rushed despite sitting to our table at 8.30pm.
We will be back in the future!

Excellent food and service. Only let down slightly on noise as we were sat next to the open kitchen with chefs shouting service across the restaurant. Next time we would ask for a table elsewhere.

Eating out on a Friday night felt like a huge and unusual treat. We hadn't noticed Cotto before so chose it based on the menu alone. Actually, all aspects of the restaurant were lovely. The cocktails were superb and all four of us enjoyed our meals. The decor is stylish and spacious.

Have a booked a table to celebrate my birthday. When we arrived no one is there to received us at the reception. Ordered drinks and took long for drinks to be served . Ordered our starter and brought wrong ordered . Pizza ordered was cold when served. Other food was served not hot as well. Bill was wrongly charged , charged double for one meal . During my booking online was asked for the occasion but was not greeted for my birthday.

Had to wait outside for 20 minutes for our table to be ready even though we booked. That said, it's odd times at the mo. Service was fab and the food to match. Will be returning.

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.
