Diner Reviews
  • "This place really nailed it. Pizza is the star of the show, but everything was great. Salumi is fantastic, and delicious vegetables and salads."

  • "We're really happy we found Bar Cotto. The four of us really enjoyed ourselves...kept saying afterward, "that was really good!" :-). It's a surprisingly smallish place, but the size enhanced the experience. Cool décor and a food prep area in the center of the space that I found rather entertaining. Service was outstanding with an incredibly knowledgeable server. Very friendly staff! The food was just fab. Loved the salumi board with five different salumi, the two salads we shared were unique and tasty, and the two pizzas were beautifully thin with delicious combinations. Highly recommend...can't wait to return!"

  • "Smart waitress w twinkle in her eye may have been best part of experience. If you live on Capitol Hill, don't need a private conversation, and really like pizza, it's a fine restaurant. Definitely not worth a long drive."

  • "The sides/appetizers are, as others say, tremendous. You must try them, but yes they will fill you up before the fantastic pizzas arrive. Great place!"

  • "Very good. Server was a bit awkward. came through in the end though. Great pizza and Charcuterie. Tuna bruschetta special was good but not great. Next day heartburn was brutal though. Worth it."

  • "I was able to snag a reservation for valentines day late and I was pretty impressed. It was their 1 year anniversary and we were offered sparkeling wine when we sat down, which was nice. The salumi we orders was delicious as was the salad and pizza. Friendly, attentive service too. Wish it was closer to home so we could come more often!"

  • "Enjoyed the evening, and the great food. Thought Waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. Everyone in group talked about the good food, and indicated they would return!"

  • "Great pizza; very good side plates; drinks were a little disappointing. Not sure Dinkel is the rye I would go for when building a Manhattan - especially if you're trying to position your bar as a "cocktail bar for the discerning drinker." Sadly, the staff seemed largely uninterested in their roles. Nonetheless, we witnessed nothing that would keep us from going back - just not right away."

  • "Booked a table for 8. It took them an additional 15 mins to seat us. But the food more than made up for the wait."

  • "The food was delectable, the drinks were very palatable, the service was impeccable, and the ambience was ideal. We ordered drinks (Pilsner and house Chianti mostly), a salumi plate, tortas fritas, two bruschettas (chicken liver pate and pork belly), as well as two pizzas (parma and porchetta). Everything was spot on, especially the tortas fritas (if you're a carb person, be prepared for doughy/fried goodness) and the pizza is, in my opinion, better than Serious Pie. Come here if you're a fan of good pizza and succulent flavors!"

  • "Great bartenders (very knowledgeable) and excellent, simple dishes. Great if you want something basic (pizza) with an extra dose of class. The salads to start are unique and thoughtful, very tasty, and the bruschetta is creative as well. "Upscale" pizza - a great meal overall. Ambiance is typical of most Seattle trendy spots - dark wood, Edison bulbs, polished black metal... not unique, but nice overall."

  • "I reserved a table for eight at this small, classy restaurant. It felt special with outstanding food and service, but was not overpriced."

  • "I had just flown in from Tampa and wandered into Bar Cotto. My server guided me through my entire experience which was flawless.....from the wine through the porchetta....the funghi pizza was the best I've eaten"

  • "The salumi plates are amazing - my favorite was the house Porchetta. The pizza and bruschetta were great as well -- Bar Cotto is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle."

  • "This restaurant is a Gem. The wood-fired pizzas are cooked in an oven over 600 degrees. They are crispy and thin, with well-curated and seasonal ingredients. The salumi menu is the best I've seen. The veggie dishes are also good, if a bit heavy for a first course. The wine menu swings Italian, and unfortunately the waitstaff is quite as helpful at selecting wines as they could be (next door, at Anchovies and Olives, the waitstaff go to great lengths to find you a bottle or glass to your liking). The space is very well-designed, small, cozy and modern. Only complaint is the service can be very slow."
