We booked Cotto for a family celebration meal during graduation week. Our booking was for pretty late at night and we didn't all arrive at the same time. Despite this the Cotto service was so good we felt very much at home. In fact the service was a high standard throughout the meal and helped to make this a very... More

Took a friend for his birthday - brilliant attentive but not cloying service, DELICIOUS food, one of best veg options anywhere! Save your pennies for a treat here.

Service was very good. Food was good but not exceptional. Meal cost £60 for 3 courses. However you work out the figures (£20 per course or £30 for main and 2 x £15) the meal didn't seem very good value for money. That said the ambience was pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Probably our favourite restaurant in Cambridge - even though you have to book - sometimes well in advance, especially at weekends. They have an imaginative menu with enough choices for anyone's needs and the staff are always most helpful and friendly. The place to go if you want a treat in pleasant quiet surroundings.

My friends arranged a birthday dinner for me at Cotto as many of us had heard about it and never tried it. It is by far the best restaurant in Cambridge. The welcoming atmosphere, the professionalism of all staff and the quality of the food are all beyond excellent!! The staff are very welcoming, accommodating and extremely attentive! The chef...

Our second visit to Cotto in Cambridge last Saturday, and we were not disappointed. Both the food and service is of a very high standard, and the room is light and airy on a hot summers day. Elegant starters, terrific main courses and the 'Piano' dessert is a masterpiece. Go while they are still there, you won't be disappointed.

This has got to be one of my favourite restaurants. Located on a busy street in Cambridge but set back within a charming building, Cotto offers first class food and service rarely found anywhere else! It's always a struggle to make a booking being so popular but after a quick cancellation, we were lucky. Although it's not huge upstairs, it's... More

I've eaten in Cotto many times and the service and food are always excellent. Hans and his team do an amazing job of creating unfussy but beautifully cooked food!

This is one of the best restaurants that I have experienced - alongside the Millenium Hotel's restaurant in London. Salmon trio starter, beef cheek & sirloin main, and chocolate piano for dessert. Expensive, but the food is worth the price. We had the second evening sitting. This started at 9.15pm, which might be a little late for some, but the... More
