I took my partner there for his birthday and we had a very nice time. The food was nice and well presented and the staff was very nice without being overly obliging. I had made a note about the birthday when I booked and they wrote "Happy birthday" on his dessert plate, which I thought was just right (these things... More

Cotto has slightly eccentric opening times and you should check these before attending but it is comfortably the best restaurant I have visited to date in Cambridge, The service is attentive, but not overly fussy (the staff are friendly and conversational) and the menu is imaginative and food excellent - Highly recommend, (Pudding plate decorated in chocolate with Happy Anniversary...

Eaten at cotto a few times over the years. It's very different to any of restaurant in Cambridge. It's well worth it though, the food is great, if your into slightly experimental dishes! Worth the high price!

My boyfriend and I had dinner here to mark a special occasion. We eat out quite often and agree that Cotto is something special. It's quite a small restaurant so feels quite intimate, which was really nice. The staff were all very friendly, and attentive without being intrusive. Our waiter had the knack of knowing just when to top up... More

Have been to Cotto every year or so for many years. The food and service have always been exceptional and they have gone out of their way to assist with allergies and foods to avoid while pregnant. It is a complete dining experience and a real special occasion place.
