Lovely little spot less than 10 minutes walk from Waterloo. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming as soon as we walked in the door, and we were catered for straight away with Olives and gluten free bread ready and waiting on our table. The food was delicious, with the majority of the menu being available as Gluten Free (pizzas were... More

Where we live it is hard to find gluten free ristorante pizzeria and my wife absolutely loved this place. It was just amazing to enter this restaurant and feel that welcome of a truly independent Italian run restaurant. The manager was so warm and welcoming and we found that so lovely. We really want to come again as we so... More

The food was amazing, and the Owner and staff were very friendly and chatty. Best green olives I've ever tasted.

Reasonably priced and varied menu that's better than any pizza restaurant chain. Excellent service as well. Has the feel of a genuinely family-run business.

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.

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
