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.

The most important rating for me is taste, why go otherwise then style second, but I have to compliment Cotto on both. It was our 2nd visit. The taste is incredible and is presented like a Michelin invention but more of it. You will never believe how much flavour you get with a potato risotto it was the most flavoursome... More

Hans and the team provide great food well presented and well served. I had some fantastic home made bread wiith a garlic butter and a truffle... More

Best restaurant in the area by far. We have dined at several high end restaurants in Cambridge and although many of them are excellent Cotto raises the bar. It was a special occasion (wedding anniversary) so I had booked well in advance. At the end of the meal the head chef bought out our deserts with a congratulations message in... More
