Fun and lively - good vibe. Food is pretty good - a bit salty. However, chicken is better than good. The service is slow but, hopefully, it will improve with time. Also, no reservations downstairs so there is some hovering over tables... All said, it is a welcomed addition to the neighborhood.

I read all the reviews and was excited to try this restaurant. My first impression was that the atmosphere was very nice, but it was very crowded and extremely noisy. My friend and I ate upstairs and had to talk in louder than normal tones to hear each other. The service was very friendly and attentive (and patient, since our chattiness kept getting us distracted from ordering). My dinner was very tasty- I ordered the Homemade Angnolotti. The serving size was another matter. It was like an appetizer or tapas size portion. Also, it was more expensive than the menu here states. I would have rather paid a bit more to not leave felling hungry still.

Cozy and inviting on the UWS. Nice selection of food on menu and everything we ordered was very good. Our service was better than what other reviews indicated.

Very good wood-fired pizza. Too bad the staff is a bit on the vapid side, the cocktails a bit on the teeny side, and the bad house music on the way-too-loud side. Let the crowd be the atmosphere. Fix these things and I'll be back.

Not the first trattoria style restaurant on the UWS but the first to get it right. Hip, casual atmosphere. Gorgeous interior design, wood beams and gothic chandelier. Food is near flawless, and a great value. Plenty of vegetarian options. Just 2 criticisms: The big screen TVs are totally unnecessary and out of place, and the tall metal stools at every table are uncomfortable and inevitably cut your meal short.

So glad that finally a new Italian restaurant has opened on up on the UWS. We were getting tired of the same ol' same ol'; and, Cotta's menu is nothing like the neighboring places. The night we went, the restaurant was packed. Seems like they are still getting a hang of the service, but its only a matter of time that they'll figure out all of the kinks.
