Café
Hearty meat dishes and tasty pasta take the stage at Cotenna. This cozy Italian restaurant serves an extensive menu that includes seafood dishes, grilled meat and traditional pasta favorites like spaghetti and meatballs. Diners get to enjoy their meal in a cozy interior complemented by wood paneling, dim overhead lamps and walls lined with wine bottles. Chef Roberto Passon ensures the richness of each dish by insisting on only using pasta made in-house.

Cotenna offers a fine selection of wine to pair with its menu. Its simple but casual ambiance makes it an ideal pick for everything, from a mid-week business lunch, to a group outing with friends. Open until midnight during the week, and 1 a.m. over the weekend, this restaurant is also an appealing choice for late night dining. Cotenna is open all week.

NOT a Michelin Bib worthy restaurant any longer.

Food is mediocre Italian fair. Nothing special.

Service was overwhelmed but also charmless.

Limited attention paid to Covid safety.

Had a reservation at cotenna - ended up getting seated across the road at a different restaurant after an hour wait. Multiple people with reservations had similar experience

Took forever to come take our orders, and then kicked us out before we were done because they had another party with a reservation coming in.

Appetizers were great, main courses were average to mediocre at best.

Wine was on point.

Warm service, intimate environment (while practicing social distancing), delicious food - lamb chops cooked perfectly, pastas were simple (rigatoni, gnocchi, orecchiette) and well executed. Lights could be a touch dimmer.

They overbooked the restaurant and pushed us from an 8 PM reservation to 930. We ended up leaving

Loved the original, the concept was changed to a new restaurant, Aria and we weren’t informed. Very different ambiance, menu, service and standards than we were expecting.

Loved Cotenna, but I guess it’s no more.

Server had his mask on his chin, which made us pretty uncomfortable.
Food was amazing, but appetizers and entrees arrived all together which was a disappointment.

Alex the Owner/Manager and his staff are so hospitable and friendly! And of course the food was incredible too. Lamb Chops, Shrimp Scampi, etc. One of my favorite places. Dog Friendly and Frenchie friendly as well :).
