Very nice meal with a terrific waiter (Dan). I felt the valet parking was not necessary and took away when told you can not park in lot unless you use valet parking, that should be the customers' choice since there seem to be plenty of room.

The restaurant was overwhelmed on a Friday evening reportedly because some of the kitchen staff called in sick. Hopefully this was an unusual occurrence. A tactless server’s welcoming comment “I will be patient with you if you are patient with me” best epitomizes our experience of the evening

Coteletta has been my favorite go-to eating spot in the neighborhood. Therefore, I was VERY disappointed when our server announced their new policy after giving us the "specials" - no pasta or vegetable accompanies any entree; they are an additional $6 [explanation: because many people do not eat it when provided?!?!?.] In my case, that is a 25% increase for a plate of pasta - not good value. Could they not reduce portions of the sides and charge for larger amounts? I will not be returning nor recommending this venue until it revises the a la carte pricing policy.

Outstanding attention to classic cuisines with fresh well prepared salads, pastas, meats, fish & desserts. Appetizers were varied and so good.
Beth and Louis are dedicated to pleasing your every dining needs.
The pounded veal chop with bone, prepared two ways was a hit.

Extremely long wait for a very mediocre meal. Ordered chicken parm. Asked if they could leave off cheese. Told no substations. Really? Leaving off cheese is a substitute. Meal was definitely not freshly made. Preordered frozen and reheated. Also asked for beans instead of pasta. Charged $8.00 for a dozen string beans. Husband’s platter of veal also mediocre. Restaurant is expensive for poor quality food. Definitely not recommend

Great restaurant ! My only issue is the salad, or lack thereof. There are no dinner salads, and the $12 Caesar salad consisted of romaine and a crouton. Otherwise, everything we had was delicious, friendly and attentive staff. Easy valet parking.

I am always on the lookout for small neighborhood spots that have good and somewhat unique food & are not on a high traffic street or at the edge of a large parking lot. Cotoletta satisfies on all fronts.

We had a fantastic dinner at Cotoletta. The staff was great and our waitress Michelle was insightful about the food. We both had the chicken parmigiana that was pounded out so thin and tasty. Best I ever had
Can’t wait to return. My suggestion is to reserve a table.

We found this restaurant in an open table search. Was surprised to find it was within 10 minutes of our home. It was a true pleasure and treat to eat there. The food was fantastic, the staff wonderful and the atmosphere was quiet enough to have a normal tone conversation throughout the night. Will definitely go again.

First time for us trying this "neighborhood" restaurant. Celebrated a birthday with the family - two of which do not eat meat. We also had our four year old grandson who is a picky eater. Started with the Milan salad and a few other appetizers. They were are very good - especially the salad. We split the salad three ways. Grandson's dinner came out and he ordered a chicken cutlet - with no sauce. He devoured it and asked for another one! I had the Mahi Mahi and it was delicious. Wife had veal scaloppini, others had chicken parm, pasta with asparagus, and salmon. And then grandson ate an entire second piece of chicken. Everyone enjoyed their dish. The waitstaff was very attentive - even catering to the four year old. We will be going back!

Our first time to this relatively new dining spot. The food is really good. The ambience is simple and non-pretentious. On a negative side, my chair was bumped into by staff often. I felt that since we were only a couple, they tossed us in a table location that was a bit in the way. They seem to cater better to groups and larger families.
All this said, the food was really outstanding.

We were very fortunate to have a table with a last minute reservation for a Saturday evening and, then, to end up getting lost on our way to the restaurant resulting in our being late for that reservation. As it turned out, the lady who responded to our phone call while lost and greeted us when we finally arrived was very understanding and accommodating. We ended up having a great meal and will return on our next trip to Philadelphia.
Too bad they do not have a liquor license to serve wine! Since we were late, I did not have time to purchase a BYOB of red wine to enjoy with my veal.

It is a cute restaurant but the food was nothing extraordinary. I felt like the marinara sauce tasted like something out of a jar you get at acme. If I go out to dinner I like to experience food that I don’t have the time to make at home. I felt like I make better food at home.
