A word from Cotto Enoteca Pizzeria
Cotto Enoteca showcases modern Italian cuisine, specializing in authentic VPN certified Neapolitan pizza and comforting house made pastas. The menu is steeped in Italian tradition, though updated with west coast sensibility and is presented in an approachable and informal setting. Chef Alex Tung"s "simple, yet elegant" cuisine features the natural beauty of local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients in an appropriate and sumptuous manner. Showcasing the best ingredients of British Columbia and the traditional techniques of Italy is the overwhelming inspiration behind Cotto Enoteca. The wine program features a considerable "by the glass" offering including an eclectic list of specialty wines focused solely on BC and Italian wineries. The cocktail list spotlights our interpretations of classic Italian inspired libations, while the beer menu includes a few classic Italian selections along with an exciting and highly specific craft beer offering.

Diner Reviews
  • "Won't be going back here. Dinner cost what it would have cost at the Pear Tree, and the latter is a thousand times better. The ambience is awful--the place is really noisy. The food is okay, but nothing memorable, and there's little in the way of vegetarian choices. The waiter didn't bring bread until we were almost finished--he'd explained when we asked for some earlier that it was still baking. It was a Friday night around 6:30. That sounds lame. (The waiter was pleasant enough, though.) This site needs an option on the "Noise Level" of TOO LOUD. I checked "energetic", but that's not a good description."

  • "We went for a romantic dinner. The food and service were fantastic, but it was definitely NOT romantic. The music was so loud it was impossible to have a normal conversation or to hear the waitress. I expect having to shout across the table at my companions if I am in a noisy bar, but not at a restaurant. Despite that, the food and service were so good we will probably go back when the weather is warmer ---- maybe the patio won't be as noisy."

  • "The meal was great: tasty and plentiful. Found the tables a bit on the small side even for just two people and RIDICULOUSLY small for four. Also, the tables were a bit too close together---even just one less table in the restaurant would be more comfortable. The noise is a bit high because all the furnishings, walls, floors, etc. are hard--sound bounces off. Don't be put off by all this though: it is a GREAT little place. This was our 3rd time there and we'll be back frequently."

  • "This was the second time my family visited Cotto Enoteca and we still loved it as much as the first. Their pizzas are on special on Mondays (pasta on Tuesdays) and they are very good. The crust is very thin and the toppings are fairly generous. The only criticism we have about their food is that there pizzas are quite salty. Their pastas are very good too. Don't be scared by their large plate prices as a large plate is more than enough for 2 people. I drive from South Burnaby to North Burnaby just to eat here, so it really is worth it."

  • "I am happy that I bought a groupon to this place, the food was great and it is so close. A real good local joint and I will definitely be going here again soon."

  • "The mushroom pizza was great but the risotto was hard and undercooked. The waitress was friendly but didn't quite listen well to our drink orders. She would take the order then would come back because she forgot what my friend ordered. I would go back someday but only for the pizza."

  • "I have been to Cotto a few times and have always been very happy with the food and service. I've tried most of the pizzas, some of the pastas, and I've yet to be disappointed. If they have a daily special, go for it! :)"

  • "Went to cotton for a 9:00 reservation for a bit and some drinks and it did not disappoint. Drinks were great although a tad pricy but the good quickly made up for it. Pizza cooked perfectly and the berry salad was superb. Will happily return"

  • "The pizza we had (Caponata) was disappointing because somewhat tasteless. The gnocchi was pretty good, but not outstanding."

  • "My husband and I took our guests to Cotto for pizza. We all loved it. We shared 4 pizzas amongst us. Only a few slices remained! Excellent thin crust and the wood fire taste is wonderful. Will definitely bring back guests again! The housemade donuts for dessert were delicious! Great way to top off the meal. All for good value too!"

  • "Cotto is our new favourite date night spot. The food and atmosphere and spectacular and the staff clearly love being there. I am kind of kicking myself for sharing the info because I kind of want to keep it for myself..."

  • "but our table was close to the door and bar so was pretty cold and noisy. I had to wear a sweater during dinner. The good was good and the presentation was good as well. I would go back but would make sure that our table was not too close too the door."

  • "The food here is consistently good quality and prepared well. The Calimari is exceptional and worth the trip. Probably one of the best anywhere. Pizza's are uniquely equisite. I would prefer the bottom crusts to be less moist but you can't have everything. Our server has been there some time and she masters her station. A good person for this house indeed. Coffee excellent. Wines I find too expensive over all be it they have some interesting finds."

  • "Excellent food, good wine and friendly staff. Love the Caesar Salad."

  • "Got excited when I saw the menu. Napoleon style flatbreads? Awesome! Keep it simple. Got even more excited about the fresh sheet. Service was prompt, friendly and informative. Suggestions for drinks worked out for my friend. Super quiet, but it was a Tuesday. I'll be back with a larger group for sure."

  • "Came here for a family birthday, appetizers (calimari & chef's take on bruschetta) pizza and pastas (tagliatelle fruitti de mer & Papardelle Carbonara) were both excellent. Only minor complaint was that the tagliatelle was not quite as saucy as we'd prefer. Other than that, great experience overall, and in our old neighbourhood to boot!"
