Food is great and not expensive but you sometimes smell like the food when you leave. Bad ventilation but a great place and great owners. I go a lot.

Haven't been here for a while....that won't happen again. 3 of us had fantastic, creative meals and the best service in a verrrry long time. All of us took home some of our dinner but enjoyed the 3 desserts till nothing left. Forgot it is a BYO so will bring our wine next time.

We waited 45 minutes for our 7:30 reservations. We ordered quickly and got our appetizers quickly. Then we say about 50 minutes waiting for our main course. Service was off. Staff seemed overwhelmed. Not a good experience.

Great if you enjoy being berated by owner.

Aggressively negative response to a bad meal situation. Refused to take expensive tough entree off the bill because diner "ate too much" of it. Guess they employ a usage ruler to determine how much is too much. The server never came back so the issue could be reported in a timely manner. Were embarrassed because we had brought another couple with us.

The owner actually called back the next day to reprimand and denigrate my husband. If you wrote a textbook as to how NOT to handle a poor dining experience, this woman would be the author.

A warm greeting welcomes you to Cotoletta. Service was friendly and helpful. We started with the recommendation of Cacio E Pepe as a shared appetizer for the two of us. I was fearful it would be overwhelming, but it wasn't, it was delicious. He had the chicken parm and I had the signature dish the stack. We loved it all. We were too full for dessert. I loved my dinner and was very happy with how clean the restaurant was, how charming and friendly the staff were including the valet guy! Very happy to have found this restaurant by watching FYI 6 Philly. I hope to be back again soon! Thank you Cotoletta!

Cotoletta was extremely noisy on Sunday evening at 5:30. The food is always reliably good, but the salads and starters seemed a bit over priced. That said, the staff was great - friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We have visited several times and will be back. The eggplant parm is the best I have had, and the casio e pepe is fabulous, but expensive for pasta.

too warm in restaurant until they opened door. The seat of my table had food on it, as did the table, all from previous seating. Service was slow. Food was okay. had chicken parm . Cheese was skimpy. Mussels were very small. Milan salad portion was also small. Table was situated next to a steel support beam.
On plus side, seating , with a reservation was immediate.
Food was okay , but nothing special. Very noisy.

My fiance and I love Cotoletta! We are Italian BYOB lovers and have tried many places, yet we keep coming back to Cotoletta. The service is top notch, the restaurant is very clean, and the food is always very consistent. Highly recommend their mussels in the white sauce and their chicken parm (but keep in mind EVERYTHING on their menu is delicious!!)

Pasta formerly came with entrée. Now everything is a la carte, but entrée prices remain the same. Bread was cold and rubbery. Owners attitude is not very friendly, when we discussed the change in the menu with pasta not included.
The menu and her attitude will no longer make this one of our top neighborhood choices.

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.
