I knew from looking at the menu before we went that I HAD to have the Piano dessert, which tastes just as good as it looks! Cotto is a really pleasant restaurant with elegant styling and we were lucky to have a window seat. As it was a warm evening, the breeze coming through the window made it feel quite... More

After a bit of a false start with our booking, we found Ruth and her team to be very welcoming. The service was attentive yet relaxed and allowed us to enjoy our meal in a leisurely fashion. The food was really very good indeed, interesting, well balanced and just the right amount for each course. A enjoyable meal, with good... More

Second time visit and after our first time I hoped it lived up to the same level....... and it did. I think this is the best restaurant in Cambridge and the surrounding area. I can't fault it on anything. Look forward to my next visit, thank you Cotto's

That's my Queen of course. Cotto did everything correctly. Attentive service, special arrangements satisfied, food preparation superb and timing of courses sensitive, unrushed (2 1/2 hour full dinner). It was my Wife's BIG 60, but every years she gets a special dinner. Since we have been in a different location each year for the last 14 years (see www.mylovenest.com) this... More

Great food, great service and a lovely bottle of St Emilliob. We had a great fun evening with fantastic food worth every penny.

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...
