Excellent all the way around!
I have been coming here almost from the start and can say I enjoy everything here more and more each time. Every week more people coming to try Cotto and every week more people returning as regulars. Stop reading now and head down there. This time try the Stuffed Lamb Ravioli.

My husband and I were nicely
My husband and I were nicely surprised by the service and food at this restaurant. i normally don't expect much of a new places, but this was nice experience that we both enjoyed. We shared friend artichokes, clams casino, beef tartar and for entree my husband had lobster ravioli and I had pizza with arugula and prosciutto. For desert we had tiramisu. The food was really good.

All the food was amazing!
All the food was amazing! They have an extensive wine list. And, the service was great, even given we had a large party.

We showed up about 5 minutes
We showed up about 5 minutes early for our reservation so we could grab a drinks at the bar first. The hostess was very rude and said it would be about 30 minutes to wait. After about 45 minutes when the hostess never came back to check on us or bring us to the table we decided to stay and eat at the bar where the service was great.

We will try Cotto again
Overall the food was good with the exception of the veal milanese. The chopped salad and beef carpaccio were very good. The chicken scarpiello entree was also very good. The veal milanese however could have been much better. The veal was overcooked, dry, and a bit on the salty side. A nice wine selection (although they did not have my first choice in stock), and the ambiance was vibrant. We will try it again.

This is the second tune we
This is the second tune we have been to Cotto!
The first time the service was below average.
We wanted to give it another try because the waiter
Was new and the restaurant was fairly new.
Service the second time around was better,
but far from very good. We did not have one
specific waiter, rather 2 who were not in
sync to each other and at time service was slow.
We will go back because we really like the
atmosphere and food!

great night out
the service was fantastic and the food was different and delicious. Great wine list and the tapas were so good. I had the mare cotto for dinner, which is basically like a seafood pot pie. My only complaint is that even for tapas, the portions were small. If you go to the restaurant Barcelona, which is all tapas - the portions are larger for about the same price. But other than that, it was a great experience and I will definitely go back. We were the last ones to leave the restaurant and nobody was shooing us out, which is also great - they really cared about us as customers.

Great all around
This restaurant has an excellent menu to choose from. The wait staff was a bit overwhelming, but very helpful and friendly so it was okay when three different people asked if I wanted another drink. The food was delicious and with all the choices our waiter was very helpful in making our decision easy. Will definitely go back.

Restaurant is a hidden secret. Service was awesome, wine list incredible and the tapas were delicious. A few people in the party were not impressed with their dinners ( a bit under seasoned) but we would all definetley go back again and have recommended Cotto to others already. Wine list is awesome-highly recommended.

Great experience at a new place
My husband and I went for a date night .The menu has lots of items we like and a great wine list. They are only 6 months old, so I think they are still working otu the kinks. The appetizers were delicious. The main meals, both seasoned really well, were just overcooked. we had the manager helping us and found a great bottle of wine and took our order, but it was hard to know who really was your server. There were alot of people sitting and waiting to do something. I think that in a few more months this place will be five stars. plan to go back though. Great scene and not too loud.

Fun Friday Food
Everyone in a good mood on a beautiful summer night - staff and customers all happy! Good pizza, salads and entrees - reasonably priced and well prepared.
7/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Went with another couple and shared 5 tapas after that we let the waiter surprise us. He brought us eggplant caponata and pizza bread with delicious proscuitto.

Diamond in the rough
Loved the atmosphere as soon as we walked in. Instead of a traditional white table italian restaurant, it was very updated and trendy with great music. There was a nice outdoor patio to dine as well. The service staff were all italian with English as their second language - this was not a barrier, but rather added to the experience. Service was fantastic, and we enjoyed a leisurely meal. Huge wine list and varied menu, and they were willing to make us something not even on the menu. Overall a fantastic experience, and would love to come back in town just to dine here again!

real italian eats w/great service
The restaurant had excellent service, food and a nice atmosphere. It was legit Italian food :)
We came here with a very large group and the owner was very accommodating to the fact that managing a reservation ranging b/w 10-16 people was not easy. It was hard to get a precise number with people that show up or cancel last minute, but the owner/manager was very flexible.

Good as Always
I've reviewed Cotto previously because it is one of our new favorites - we have never been disappointed in the consistency and quality. We brought our young granddaughter on a Friday night hoping this hot spot wouldn't be too much for her. While I wouldn't rate Cotto as "kid friendly," they are most certainly extremely friendly to well behaved children! Everything is good here - salads are fresh and generous, and the veal meatballs just like my own - loved them!

Cotto is always excellent. After a little hiatus away from the restaurant Cotto hasn't skipped a beat. My girlfriend had the hangar steak and I had the Osso Bucco. The meat fell off the bone and was cooked perfectly. The outdoor patio is huge now and we had perfect weather to enjoy it. The bar inside was packed, dining room the same. Claudio, Sylvie and family have a great thing going here. If you haven't been here yet you need to go.

what a great find. Cotto Wine Bar had a wonderful menu, wine list, and atmosphere. we especially loved the tapas, exposed brick and authentic Italian waiter.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very authentic -and cool!
This restaurant has some of the best Italian Wines by the glass, the menu is inventive and feels like you're eating at a trattoria in Rome or Venice--just awesome. The squab and grilled calamari were awesome.

Cotto Pizza & Wine Bar = Thumbs Up
This is the perfect place to go with friends for a fun, delicious dinner. Good Italian fare, homey atmosphere and the staff could not be more attentive. Plus, on Monday nights, a bottle of wine is half off! Can't beat that for a girls night out or a date night. We had penne a la vodka and chicken Milanese on arugula salad and the food was yummy. Go, go. go.

Continues to be a great place!
Cotto has a well varied menu with very authentic food. The service is always friendly, although can be a little slow. This time the pastas we shared were a little too wet but perfect otherwise. Sauces just right. The pizzas are very Neopolitan, with semi thin, delicious and chewy crusts. The wine list is extensive as is the wines by the glass list. Great place for a reasonable, quick bite.

First time diner
We had early reservations before a show, so the restaurant was not to busy. We opted for the small plates and enjoyed a variety of tiems including a pizza, salad and a couple other small plates. Food was very good as was the service.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good wine list, good specials, good menu, and most importantly good food make this place just right. I will definitely go back when I'm in town.

Went to Cotto with party of 10. Everyone was happy! Staff was very nice and we were served quickly. Gnocchi was amazing!

Good food, lousy table
We really enjoyed our dinners. Great recommendations from the server. Our major disappointment was our table. Even with a reservation, we were seated right in front of the doorway to the kitchen. No other tables available but this table was placed in away that felt they had just jammed it into this space because we showed up. Took away from an otherwise nice dinning experience.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable evening
We will go back.

Met with colleague for lunch
Met with colleague for lunch and found it to be a perfect place for a quiet discussion. The staff was helpful and friendly and it was exciting to find out the background of the owner! (will let you all find out for yourselves). Looking forward to bringing my wife back for dinner in the near future.
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great evening with friends made special by excellent attention to services and hands on owner Angelo. Our waiter was accommodating and very professional.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Though this is a very small restaurant and a bit noisy, the food is to die for! From the recommended wine to the artfully designed salmon dish it was a very enjoyable meal. The wait staff was quite attentive and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. I would heartily recommend Cotto!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly a wonderful restaurant
They don't get much better than this!
The food is wonderful! The staff are terrific, so kind and friendly!
We love this place!!

Nice little place
We were just passing through but really enjoyed this little place. A great romantic atmosphere!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
All around fabulous
Authentic Italian. A lot of the menu but everything we tried was delicious. Definitely go for the pizza and fresh made pasta. Out waiters straight from Italy we warm friendly and took great care of our group of 8. Best part? 50% off vino on Sunday and Mondays. A Stamford must try. Oh and the warm looked nice too, perhaps to stroll in for some Italian tapas and a glass of wine after work.
For dessert try the Nutella pie or their coffee slushy, I'm hungry all over again!

A Fabulous time at this restaurant!
A Fabulous time at this restaurant! Enjoyed the passion for natural and organic food. Great wines and a affordable Amarone! We will be back again!

Great little place. Very warm and friendly, fresh food. Loved the menu, excellent service. Would definitely return.

This was our second time dining
This was our second time dining at Cotto and we were equally impressed the second time around. Food is fabulous! I had lamb chops that were grilled perfectly. There were however two negatives. The noise level was a little high and when the front door opens you get blasted with the cold air from outside if you are sitting near the front of the restaurant.
