This place is just like the places we ate at in Italy. We also LOVE the woods fired pizza. You should start with an appetizer and after your dinner stay for dessert.

I love supporting local businesses
I love supporting local businesses and I did enjoy my meal here. I thought our server was outstanding as she was friendly, professional, answered questions, made suggestions, etc. I did think the menu was a bit too large and the wine list had no real cohesion and flow. The glass choices were limited and offered strange options for what is billed as a pizza and wine bar. Overall was good, will I go back, not sure yet.

Great Food, Great Place
The food we had was very good. We went in for Pizza and ended up ordering entree's. Lots of food to take home too.
Everything was great and there was a variety of items on the menu. Will absolutely go back.

Cotto a Legna is awesome!
This is a great "hidden gem" in Geneva. I think, due to its location, the traffic isn't as heavy, but it should be frequented by any/everyone in the Kane County area. Their pizzas are really good and their grilled calamari is outstanding! And, it's all reasonably priced. We've been many times, and hope it gains more exposure and sticks around for a while.

One of my fav spots!
Make sure and make a reservation if you are going on the weekend. You can book open table close to the time you want but if you just show up you will have to wait.

Nice get together
We dined on a tuesday night. It was not packed and we sat at a table by the window. We were able to have a nice conversation at a normal voice level. The waitress gave us as much time as we needed, we were too busy catching up than choosing food. They have a great wine list and let you taste your choice before pouring a full glass. The food was delicious and we split everything. Overall it was a great time and we thoroughly enjoyed our selves.

good food, good service, good wine
We were undecided as to eating outdoors or indoors as the weather looked "iffy", but the noise level inside was so loud that we decided to dine on the patio. Good choice. Even the passing trains seemed quieter than the conversation level inside! The weather held and it was a delightful evening. 2 appetizers -- breasola and calamari were outstanding. For dinner, 3 of the 4 of us had seafood (frutti di mari and swordfish) and the 4th had fettucine-- we were all happy with our choices and the authenticity of the Sicilian cuisine. After 2 bottles of cabernet (both very good!) and 2 hours of excellent service (thanks, James!), dinner was over. Our only complaint -- no room for dessert!

Great food, great downtown
This place was a great find for us on a sunny afternoon. We sat outside for dinner and had an amazing time. Our waiter was outstanding and went the extra mile for us in every way. The food was absolutley delicious. We had the Zuppa Di Mare appetizer and it was loaded with mussels. We also had the Italian Rosini which they split for us for no charge. My son enjoyed the Lobster Pappardelle and he also enjoyed it. Definately we will be back.

Fun, friendly place. Food and service was great. I had the Fettuccine Carbonara (awesome). My wife had a brick oven pizza. Took a long time to get our food (believe the pizza was the source of the delay), though we were not in any hurry so it was fine with my wife and I. Our server was apologetic. We will definitely return here again.

A Family Favorite
We have dined here several times and it is definitely a family favorite. If you want an authentic Italian experience --this is the place to find it. Save room for the turtle cheesecake! It's to die for!

Great restaurant in Geneva
My wife and I were able to eat at this restaurant on a Friday night in the summer. We were seated outside (what we wanted) and had a great meal. We each ordered a pizza and there was too much food to eat. The pizzas were very good. It seemed like the inside was a bit loud, but outside it was perfect.

Great Place to Eat
When we arrived our table wasn't ready and they were very busy but the hostess personally came to us and assured us that it would just be a few minutes. And much to my surprise it was and the staff went above and beyond. This is the third time we have eaten here and every time the service and the food was wonderful!

More than delicious pizza!
Been there once before and was impressed with the pizza and bruschetta, but wanted to try something else off the menu this time. The lobster ravioli and seared seabass were delicious! Although the pricier items on the menu, definitely worth it! Presentation and flavor were excellent, and the portion sizes were large enough that a to-go box allowed us to enjoy again. Our server, Kris, was attentive and friendly, and also let us enjoy our meal at a leisurely pace (the restaurant was not crowded for a Wednesday night, however, the noise level was still "energetic" [loud]). We will definitely keep going back and trying something different each time!

We happened to find this place & decided to try it. Great thin-crust pizza, (individual size available) and salads, etc.
The service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and made suggestions. The pizza was delicious and there is a courtyard with outdoor dining available. We will go back again!

Outstanding service - salty food
Great service here, nice menu, but everything we ordered was extremely salty.

Great outdoor dining
This is a summer favorite of ours. Great service. Nice wine and wonder menu selections.

We attended on a busy evening due to local homecoming events and was very pleased with how well the service and timeliness was of our meal. Great service and very good quality food. Would absolutely go back. Nice open atmosphere and clean surroundings located right downtown.

Another fine meal. We started with the calamari which was golden and delicious. A few larger pieces were chewy, but most were tender, well seasoned, and not the least bit greasy. My wife enjoyed the veal Marsala (a special) which was tender and tasty (served with egg noodles). I enjoyed the lamb chops. I ordered them medium, next time I will go medium-rare. The balsamic sauce on the four lollipop chops gave the right amount of acidity to the nIcely charred and seasoned chops. The potato risotto was unique, a bit overcooked, and heavy. The side of risotto could have fed 2-3 people. The perfect ending to the meal was a shared deconstructed canolli. The crisp shell was the perfect way to pick-up the sweetened marscapone and chocolate sauce.

Cute, cozy restaurant, next to Geneva train station. Good food, great service.

BEST PIZZA EVER!!!
This restaurant has by far the best pizza I've ever eaten. I am addicted to this pizza. I can't get enough of the margherita pizza. My husband orders a different pizza every time we go and he has loved every one. I am extremely picky with pizza and I can't tell you enough how delicious it is. This pizza is not a heavy greasy pizza. It's almost feel like you are eating a healthy pizza since the crust is super thin and the ingredients are all fresh! If you are craving a tasty pizza this is the place to go. I haven't tried anything else here but I'm sure everything is delicious. This restaurant has a great atmosphere. It's very upscale and nicely decorated. It's usually never busy and I go here at least twice a month to get my pizza fix.

I have had dinner at Cotto many times, always delicious and very friendly.
Keep up the good work. By the way, it was the first time I reserved a table on line. So Easy!
