Our party of 7 was extremely happy to have found such a great restaurant that could cater to our three celiac diners so well. All of our family were greeted by the lovely staff and they even taught us some Italian! We loved the food and had such a great dinner. The staff were amazing and I would highly recommend... More

Needing to completely avoid gluten and rice makes dining out extra-challenging for me. A friend with celiac's recommended Cotto, and I was pleased to note that it was in walking distance of my AirBnB! My husband and I stopped there after a long day of museums, and were seated promptly. The owner asked if anyone at our table had food... More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and was very convenient to Days Hotel. Staff couldn't have been more welcoming and had no problem with one of us arriving later than booking.

This is a gluten-free heaven. The owner/chef is a coeliac Italian, so everything on the menu is gluten-free and authentic Italian. I am not a coeliac myself so I can eat wheat based dishes, but the GF tiramisu from here beats all the "normal" ones.

We were welcomed by the Italian owner and got great service from the Italian staff. Had the lasagna which was the best I have ever had. 34 pounds for two people with 1 beer and an glass of wine. Very fair

This was our 2nd visit to The Italian Cotto and after a break of about 5 years the atmosphere was a warm and welcoming as ever. The same family served the same really good food. Would definitely recommend for couples families, quiet evenings, big celebrations...

My family and I had dinner at this restaurant on our first night in London, and it was amazing!! The pasta is made from scratch and very delicious. The service is also excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend!

Although the owner told us he had celiac and seemed to completely understand GF, 2 of 4 celiacs in my family had reactions, 1 quite severe within an hour of eating (her typical reaction to gluten). Something was wrong with the food, we think the pizza had wrong crust or was cross contaminated somehow. Be careful here!

Lino's food is phenomenal- truly, the best food in London. It was a gluten free heaven and will be my first stop when I come back to town. The olives, the bread, the pizza, the penne...I get hungry just thinking of it!
