It’s a nice neighbourhood place. The lack of a liquor license is a downfall, but the food is good.
Very good food. Friendly servers. Convenient location.
It was great. The only thing they still don’t have their liquor license back. When we were there in the summer it was supposed to be a month tops. Now it is 6 months later. It is not a deal breaker just nice if you want a glass of something.
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!!!
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.
All the staff were super friendly, inviting, honest and sweet. We truly enjoy d our 5years wedding anniversary this evening! Thank you!
Super salads, both the Cotto salad & Beet salad. Service friendly, ingredients tasted fresh - absolutely loved the crispy pancetta on the Cotto salad.
Disappointed that liquor licence paperwork problem prevented beer and wine from being served. That problem has been ongoing for several weeks! Patio was closed and under renovation.
Amazing rose linguini and meatballs!
The dough of our pizza is too tough to chew. Disappointing.
The calamari was still good as before.
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.
Great service; food is satisfactory; ambiance is laid-back and casual. I'd hang out with my friends here more often.
Our server was awesome, she was friendly, positive and obviously enjoyed her job. Just
wish I could remember her name, she was lovely!
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.
Food was okay, I had the pizza funghi, could have used more toppings and cooked more. The dough was still white. Tasty tho. our waitress was awesome.
Great food and a good wine list . Fits all all occasions Birthdays, a quick dinner after work or just meetings friends for dinner
My wife and I really enjoyed our special day. I would highly recommend this place. Great food and service. Everyone was friendly.
Delicious! One of the best Italian restaurants in the city...will definitely be back soon!
Good food, good service,
The Bonino desert was great. A must try.
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.
We frequent Cotto and always enjoy the environment and food. Very happy customers.....
The pizza is amazing! Fresh ingredients and crispy crust. I recommend eating here to all. Y friends!
This was my 5th time at Cotto. I have always had top drawer service and food! This occasion was no exception!
A very good meal. Introduced our neighbors to the restaurant and they enjoyed themselves as well.
I really enjoyed the decor right when I walked in as not many restaurants in Burnaby look that nice. They have a good wine list and the prices are not bad. Had an appy, pizza and pasta and were satisfied with all dishes. Service was good and food came out quick. Would go back again!
Service by the lovely Gala was OUTSTANDING. As usual, food was delish and as Cotto is my absolute favorite place for the best Caesar's, it did not disappoint.
Love this place. A definite dine out treat. Excellent food and atmosphere.
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.
