What Insiders Are Saying
We can always rely on Cotogna in the Financial District for an excellent upscale Italian meal.
Never a disappointment, food and service were great!
Cool atmosphere with fairly good food (I feel I have sufficient authority to opine on this topic since I am Italian!) and efficient and friendly service.
Always come here when in town. Beautiful produce, friendly service and lovely wine selection. Dreaming about the little gem salad with buttermilk. Only critique would be that the playlist was a tad pedestrian. Every song was a top 10 hit from its’ era which gets distracting.
Happily celebrated my husbands bday, it was divine all around.
my favorite sf restaurant. the service, food and ambiance are always stellar.
Good food but took them forever to seat us even though I had a reservation. They should have made those first two drinks on the house.
It was absolutely wonderful!!
Service was outstanding. It made the entire dining experience special. It's a stand out in the city and makes all the difference.
As always, the food and service is outstanding. Wish they could do something about the noise level.
The sardines were yummy!
Food was superb. We ordered three different pastas. All were perfect. We'll go back.
The restaurant is overpriced for what it is. Don't order sparkling water, as they charge $8 for a bottle of filtered water with added carbonation and don't advise their patrons of the price.
There are better Italian restaurants in the city.
Cotogna is a top-notch spot for delicious Italian dining. Dinner is more popular here but lunch is great too. Service is on point and the food is delicious.
$16 for water?!?
We have eaten at Cotogna for many many years.
I devoured my pasta. It was delicious. I will be back.
Outstanding culinary experience.
Wine was great; appetizers were great and the main courses simply delicious.
The food at Cotogna has, including dessert, no comparison whatsoever.
Place is cozy and gives you the feeling of a modern trattoria.
Service was excellent; we had the captain (a lady named Hannah; not sure if she was the captain) accompanying our dinner the whole time; providing explanations as per the wine and dishes.
We loved the experience.
Cheers too Cotogna.
The food was absolutely amazing! The service was a little disappointing.
Haven't been here in a couple of years but still love the space, ambience, food and menu. Took a partner who is new to the city and couldn't have picked a better spot to showcase. Didn't realize they didn't give bread at lunch but something that is a good excuse to go back for dinner.
Great Food and Service.... Always!
Cotogna is exceptional cuisine. Heirloom tomatoes with anchovies was an excellent starter.
All the pasta dishes are creative and delicious.
Our server was knowledgeable and could not have been nicer.
Consistently excellent on all levels—food, service, vibe. Warm and professional. Shouldn’t be missed.
Great experience.... amazing food... love Cotogna
Food was amazing. Staff was attentive and friendly. Ambience is elegant and cozy and prices are fair
Overall Cotogna is an excellent restaurant, in particular the food. From the array of antipasti to the pastas and the main courses it's a real treat to eat at Cotogna. Of course the pizzas from the forno are outstanding along with Estevan's foccacia. The service is fine and the atmosphere is vibrant. In short, people love Cotogna that's why it's difficult to get an evening reservation, particularly on Friday or Saturday. But they're open for lunch as well, so somehow you need to get there and enjoy the great selections of Italian dishes. You won't be disappointed.
We just loved our dinner !
Excellent Italian trattoria. The pasta was excellent as expected. One of the pork chops was a bit fatty but very tasty. The service was top notch, friendly, patient, and very helpful.
Service was very slow but food was delicious.
consistent perfection with my favorite egg raviolo
Loved it food is always great and fresh. Personal Servicer is excellent
We were celebrating Fathers Day a day early. I put that info in my reservation and the staff really rolled out the red carpet. My mom was able to join last minute and they were extremely accommodating, even with a packed house. Our server made some recommendations and we all shared several plates. Food was great! Service was excellent. They even switched out the place settings to say Happy Fathers Day, on a Saturday. The attention to detail was impressive. I would most certainly go back!
Our waitress was beyond amazing and made our experience that much better. Thrilled with everything, as always.
Always a treat! We especially enjoy the bistecca for two. And the prosciutto appetizer is excellent.
Well, they had run out of what I originally ordered as a main course. What I did ordered, agnolotti del plin, was good but not great. The appetizer gnocchi Fritos with prosciutto was very good and unusual. They were very pleasant, but all in all, I have had better meals. Service was timely. And attention to detail was fine
This place never disappoints.. great food made with local sourced ingredients.. love it .. as always :)
I’ve been many times ! Timing was perfect for a Tuesday night !
Would recommend this restaurant, But not if you have dietary challenges. One of our party members is a vegetarian and our server was not forthcoming at all with any menu compromises... what, no marguerita pizza? The meatless red sauce on pasta, while nice they made it for him... was lousy.
The dishes the rest of us had were great.
Fantastic place to eat hands down. The decor is simple and clean, the space intimate and the location keeps overly touristy people away.
The waitress was knowledgeable and we let her choose the food for us from the minimal menu. Every item she picked was phenomenal and the service top notch.
Wonderful food and service.
