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.

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.

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!

Being temporarily unable to serve alcohol was a disappointment, but at least they called to tell me ahead of time. Italian food without wine is less than ideal. They've changed their menu and two of the pizzas we live best are no longer available. The pizza I had instead wasn't as good. So that was disappointing too. Overall, not our best experience at this normally great restaurant.

Great little restaurant - had never been before. The pizza was great - very nice patio - the only thing is sometimes the traffic noise from Hastings was loud. Overall not a big deal though as the rest of the experience and ambiance is great there.

we had to change our reservation to add a guest when we walked in and without missing a beat they asked where we'd like to sit - very accommodating. Great staff that kept us informed and were very friendly. Three pizza were ordered for the table and everyone raved about them - great tasting. I had the beet salad which was great, but I wished the beets were roasted and served warm - just the way that I like them personally (these were boiled then served chilled). Overall a real gem in the neighbourhood.

Good place to grab a bite, on the way past or a destination place, for a romantic dinner.
South facing patio is great on a sunny afternoon.

I had used the Cotto Catering people on a number of occasions and the food had always been very good and got good comments so I thought we should try the restaurant itself. The staff were very friendly and took time to answer our questions about the menu. The food was tasty, a little on th espicy side for my guest but overall very good.

I enjoyed the lunch here but the sound echos from the ceiling and it was hard to hear as others' voices were raised.
The food is good, but I gave it a lower rating for value as $13 seems high for a salad at lunch ( not a full meal size) but a side salad.

Table of four, we all enjoyed our food! Very tasty! The food is artfully arranged on the plate, which is very pleasing to the eye. My only negative comment is that the restaurant layout is not wheelchair friendly, and it is difficult to manoeuvre around without having to ask other patrons to move! With the population demographics being increasingly seniors, I think the floor plan could be updated! Thank you.

It was our first time going to Cotto pizzeria. We kept hearing really good things about the restaurant and well it wasn't what we expected it to be. It was really loud and we weren't really able to enjoy our anniversary dinner. The wine and desert were really good. The pasta and pizza we ordered however where not that good. We expected the food to have a better taste and flavour. It just lacked this. Thank you for the experience though.

Restaurant was great. Food was awesome. What wasn't great was having to wear my winter coat as every time the patio doors were opened (and usually left partially open) there was a freezing cold draft blowing on me. Would go again, as pizza was delicious, but DO NOT sit in the middle of the restaurant unless visiting in the summer.

Four of us were there for a late lunch. We ordered 2 pizzas and 2 pasta dishes to share. It was "enough" food but certainly no leftovers. The pizzas were excellent and the pasta dishes were pretty good. We found the restaurant quite cold since it's wide open and has concrete floors - we moved out to the patio where it was warmer than inside as we sat by one of the heaters.
I think would be a lovely spot for lunch or dinner when the weather is a little warmer.
