    Second time coming for a delicious meal! We ordered meatballs and calamari for an app and both for delicious. Chicken parm is always fantastic and my friends ordered the chicken piccata and raved about it!!! Love it here for a good affordable Italian meal.

    We enjoyed a very nice meal at Cotoletta! The outdoor seating options (covered or open) are very nice across from Fitler Square. Service was excellent: we were greeted warmly and seated immediately along Pine Street. Our waiter was very attentive and served us at a nice pace that didn't feel at all rushed but also didn't feel like they had forgotten us. We started with a nice selection of wine and beers that were served promptly and cold! Then the waiter brought us fresh Italian bread with delicious Olive oil. My wife and I then shared a Milan Salad that was outstanding; for dinner, she ordered the chicken picata over pasta, and I ordered the swordfish special. Both were exceptional. Neither of us had room for dessert, and we even had small portions to take home with us. Mid-meal, we noted with excitement the arrival of a large party including Charles Barkley! Certainly Sir Charles knows the best Philly restaurants. We highly recommend Cotoletta!

    Very solid Italian food. Would go backs Not for the adventurous, though. I’d go here for those typical American-Italian dishes - the chicken Parms etc. Also I suggest they revamp their cocktail menu, as it’s pretty boring.

    The outside cabins couldn’t be any nicer. Nice furniture, real windows that slide open, ceiling fans. Our server was very nice and perfectly attentive. Food was great as always. Milan salad, and three chickens among us (piccata, Parmesan and Milanese) were all perfect. Lemon mascarpone cake also really good!

    We wanted Italian food and we are so happy we lucked up on Cotoletta. We tried the 2 salads, the Caesar and the Milan. The Milan was fantastic and the Caesar was tasty too. We shared the chicken parm, chicken piccata and the branzino special. Everything was tasty. We were seated outside on the covered area which was perfect. The service was wonderful. We will be back!!

    It doesn’t get much better than this if you’re looking for outdoor dining. The stack was great, the tiramisu was even better. Very attentive waitress and lots of bread. I will definitely be back.

    Good wine list and the food was absolutely delicious. I had a special appetizer of clams casino and the Luigi’s pasta - homemade spaghetti with crab meat and shrimp. One of my friends had their chicken cutlet Milanese - portion was huge. Other friend had eggplant parm. Service was great. That have cute outside area too and inside is nice too. I highly recommend and will definitely go back.

    The cutlet is delicious, as always. The calamari was delicious as well. The pasta that comes with the cutlet was over cooked and a bit underwhelming. We would go much more often if it were not so overpriced.

    Another great dinner! Our waiter Peter was fantastic-we had the mussels with white wine sauce (sauce was amazing dipped in bread), and the “Stack” + Veal Picatta, both were fantastic. Perfect spot for an al fresco summer dinner in city!

    We liked the food and service at the old location much better. The food was okay, the only standouts were the mini crab cake appetizer and the Tira misu. One of us had to find a parking spot (which was difficult on a Saturday night), so we were a bit late with ordering. We felt a bit rushed and the service wasn’t that friendly. Also, for these prices you would expect fresh silverware for your main course.

    First time here and went for a graduation celebration. The portions are huge so plan to share or expect to have leftovers. The food was good and we would return. I would say the wine list was a miss. For a moderately priced restaurant there needs to be a matching moderately priced wine selection. That was not the case. We are used to buying a bottle or 2 at a restaurant and there was nothing to choose from that we felt justified the price and from my recollection only 1 bottle offered under $60 that I can recall. That being said we would return and would recommend and enjoy their beer selection which was good and reasonably priced.

    This was our first visit to Cotoletta. We were seated outside as requested. The food was excellent. All three of us at the table opted on the chicken or veal picatta and we ordered small crabcakes as an appetizer. The seasoning on the veal gave it a distinct flavor separable from the wine in which it was prepared, which was wonderful. Our meals were accompanied by pasta. The meal was a delight in every respect. However, the service is among the worst I have ever had. Dinner took 2 1/2 hours. First we waited a long time for the waiter to come to our table. Then everything came at a snail's pace. The manager came out and comped our appetizer, recognizing our long wait. An adjacent table was served and on its way before us, even though they arrived afterward. The waiter often disappeared for extended time. When our entrees appeared at last, our waiter provided neither apology nor explanation. At no time did he provide any apology or explanation for the delay. We normally tip 20% these days--needless to say our waiter did not get that much. Fortunately, time was reasonably flexible, so no harm was done. However, the delay interfered with our adult daughter's plans for the evening at her Wharton reunion. In sum, the food was terrific. My wife and I would certainly return. I choose to believe that we just had a poor waiter. Fortunately all else was great, so the evening was still most enjoyable.

    What a marvelous time I had at Cotoletta! Every bite was a revelation, and the fire pit seating is by far the best dining table in Philadelphia (here's a hint if you're getting engaged, book the fire pit and then propose in Fitler Square across the street). Pete, our server, was just great. My only concern is that service was very slow. We waited for about an hour just for appetizers. I wasn't sure if it was an off night with employee callouts or something, but that raises concerns. However, when you're sitting in rocking chairs next to a lovely fire pit, the slow service is a blessing. I can't wait to come back. I had a wonderful evening.

    Pros: friendly, great staff; location; seating; large portions Cons: service is more amateur (forget that patrons exist, forgetting to give cutlery, little things) but the staff were really nice; desserts are not made in-house; although they offer good Lazzaro espresso, only strictly espresso is offered, no other espresso based drinks, I.e latte, cortado, ect

    They need to add more staff if they are going to take reservations and walk ins. Expect bad service because under staffed. Food was fine but the pasta came straight from the water with sauce on top without cooking together. Not what you expect or want from a $200 meal.

    A lot of diners from other parts of the city. The restaurant no longer feels like a local spot for the people that live nearby. I don't get the sense that management recognizes repeat (even if infrequent) customers. It's not "Cheers".
