The preparation of some menu items have changed from previous visits and not for the better in my opinion. Cheddar cheese on spinach canneloni! The penne polo was fantastic however. Still a great place to dine.
The service was good and the food was great. Not sure why their liquor license is currently suspended. Ambience was good. Not too loud, not too quiet. This place is good for a special meal or just dinner with family.
Always love coming to Cotto. The food is always consistently great. My favorite is the Burrata (first recommended to me by the lovely servers a few years back), followed by the Tagliatelle Carbonara (delicious, with ample ingredients covered with savory sauce).
It’s too bad that they are currently operating without a liqour license (bartender told me they are in process of getting it back).
Definitely will come back to collect more reward points through their mobile app.
no alcohol license... not sure what happened to the old one. Pizza was a little soggy but tasted fine. Pasta was underwhelming. Service was good. I may go back if I’m in the neighborhood but doubt I’ll make a special trip out there again.
The restaurant is enduring a very long spell without a liquor license, so I'm willing to give it some slack while it soldiers through this hardship. For some reason on the night we were there the room was close to refridgerator-cold. I looked around and all the customers had their winter jackets on (I followed suit).
As always, the calamari is a stand-out.
The menu has, however, been tweaked, and clearly without the benefit of the chef who created the original core menu (who has been long gone). The salmon pizza, for instance, is now a mess. It is a salmon-shrimp hybrid now, both of which come cold ontop of the bland-tasting pizza. The slow-cooked egg on top, which used to be the highlight, has now evolved to an under-cooked fast-cooked poached egg. So, with the already borderline soggy centre of the crust, the under-cooked egg makes the pizza pretty unappetizing. The original flavours were delicious, but now there's a lemon & dill creme fraiche drizzled on top, making things even muckier. Sorry to see what used to be a masterpiece devolve into a disaster.
One word, amazing
Great service and food. Everything was fresh and could tell handmade not some can sauce used or frozen ingredients. The servers were happy and very attentive but not to the point of being annoying. Definite recommendation restaurants to my friends.
We come here all the time. It’s too bad that the city of burnaby yanked their liquor license on a technicality but I hear they are getting g it back soon.
I have been here many times but was very surprised that we couldn't enjoy a glass of wine with lunch, we were celebrating our birthdays and so were disappointed. It would have been nice to know this ahead of time. The ceasar salad could have used a touch more dressing, the pizza was perfect, as usual!
I do not have the words to describe just how good the food is here. Just eat here and you'll know why!!!
