I live in the area and my bf and I go to Cotta all the time, the pizzas are a winner by far, not to mention their mascarpone and honey bruschette. The staff is friendly and quick to offer their opinion on any wine question. As far as value this place is a hit, the prices are very reasonable and they've got an awesome brunch special, $20 for an entree and 2 hrs of cocktails, definite winner here!

This place seemed like a real find -- lovely space, good food. But our service was beyond inattentive. We waited forever for everything (ordering wine, getting wine, ordering food, getting food, getting second courses), our waitress was astonishingly unpresent, unapologetic for waits and mistakes, and utterly disinterested in making our experience better. Sadly, we will not likely be back, despite a manager's attempt to rectify. (He only appeared at our request, not at our server's.)

Tried this place out with my bf on Sunday night. We each got a pasta and a salad, and we split a small plate. Everything took FOREVER to come. Granted, they were busy, but it still was way too long, especially considering what we ordered was nothing fancy. The waitress was very nice and apologetic, but it still ruined our meal. The orecchiette pork and fennel sausage was very delicious.

I went with my sisters, the hostess and staff were friendly and sweet although The service was a little slow and the waiters rushing about without making eye contact. We were seated in the lounge section, and one of the sofas was broken and quite uncomfy but there wasn't much choice to move around. The food itself was lovely and the recommendations were also good. The waiter was very sweet and the ambiance was warm and cosy. All in all I would definitely go back.

We have had the trout, the eggplant and mushroom sides, the pesto-pasta, the ribs, and the chicken. Each were superb, as well as the Barolo wine bottle that we shared. Atmosphere was super. Our waitstaff was very cordial and plan on returning soon!

Been going to Kefi for years now, went here on a recommendation from a friend and were extremely pleased with our meal. The bruschette were a major highlight, all four we ordered were excellent (marscapone, truffled egg, and garlic were the best, the tomato mozz was good, but not great) The salad was decent, not amazing. The pizza and trout were top notch. Pizza was cooked to perfection, trout was very similar to the bronzini at Kefi (nice crispy and salty skin, and great flavored flesh). The decor was awesome too, I never care or comment about that sort of thing, but it definitely tied it all together. Rustic, antiquey. The only problem was that the music they were playing didn't really fit the motif.

We loved this place the first few times we tried it. Great selection of wine with ok prices (at this point I basically expect wine lists to be a rip off). We basically go there for pizza and salad which are both always very good. Service goes from very good, (great sommelier who knows his wine), to subpar- rude, snotty, even one server yanked our bottle of wine from the table when it still had about a third left.. Plus side is pizza and wine in a great looking space and cool feeling bar scene. Gets too crowded and loud- too hot upstairs sometimes; the service needs to be improved. Lowdown: We keep looking for a new pizza place in the area, but for the time being, we go to Cotta!
