The owner comes from near my mum's home town....no that's not enough for a good review (though very friendly all the same😎) but the Polipo Affogatto (octopus in tomato and chilli) So so so good - as good as mama's or nonna's. Wonderful And the pizza's are damn good too.

I booked in advance as we were a party of 8, and one of our party is GF, booking was made with no bother, I contacted the restaurant a couple of days prior to mention another guest was celebrating a birthday, and the owner ensured the Chef, baked an Italian style cake, and even made a special GF desert for...

We recently celebrated my husbands 50th Birthday at The Italian Cotto. One of the best things about this place is my husband, who has Coeliac Disease, had a fantastic amount of choice. Usually restaurants give him 2/3 gluten free options, on this menu there were only 2/3 exceptions between the gluten free menu and the main menu. Both standard and... More

We went to this restaurant the first night we arrived and it was perfect. The service was fantastic and the food was really good. If you need gluten free food this is the place for. The food is really good and they provide a lot of gluten free options. The other nice this is that it is priced really well... More

Very warm welcome with the boss and the young waiter very attentive. Typical restaurant and meals from Southern Italy. Pasta e spaghetti 'al dente' and good pizza. Affordable prices. We highly recommend this restaurant.

As soon as I went through the door the owner welcomed me with open arms. Loved the fact they all spoke Italian & the owners daughter & son in law were feeding &... More

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside. It is cozy on the inside. We were glad we checked the website because one metro station nearby was closed during our stay. Good job, for putting this information on the website! The staff is Italian, they are busy and can overlook you when ordering drinks or when you want to... More

We dined here since gf is not always served in all restaurants, and this is extremely suggested by the Italian AIC association. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy the same. Bread is good, bit salty but it happens. The problem are the ingredients: mozzarella cheese and the tomatoes sauce didn't taste fresh. Maybe next time, but not suggested

The best thing I can say was that the wine was good, and they brought ice to chill it more. As for the meal, I chose this restaurant due to the many great reviews on Tripadvisor. Sadly this was the first time I was so badly let down. One of our friends has a sensitive stomach, so ordered the chicken... More
