Description: Cotto Enoteca Pizzeria showcases modern Italian cuisine, specializing in authentic VPN certified Neapolitan pizza and comforting Italian dishes. The focal point of the restaurant is undoubtedly the wood fired brick forno. The menu is steeped in Italian tradition, though updated with West Coast sensibility and is presented in an approachable and informal setting. Cotto's simple, yet elegant cuisine features the natural beauty of local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients in an appropriate and sumptuous manner. Showcasing the best ingredients of British Columbia and the traditional techniques of Italy is the overwhelming inspiration behind Cotto Enoteca's kitchen.

“Classy and Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We just returned from having lunch at Cotto. What an energizing experience! When we entered the restaurant we found the noise level higher than what we appreciate and we were not immediately greeted. However, out of nowhere, Chef Tung appeared, greeted and welcomed us as first-time patrons and asked a server to seat us. As we didn't want to sit on high stools, a larger table was cleared right away and we were sitting down within one minute. As Sarah escorted us to our table, Josh, another server, welcomed us as well.
It is an upbeat atmosphere and, though we didn't really enjoy the noise level, it wasn't a huge problem for us. Soon after we were seated, Chef Tung brought us a lovely little plate of fresh bread and chickpea dip. We felt like he was delighted to meet us and have us in his restaurant.
Sarah and Josh were very friendly, efficient, and professional.

My husband and I each ordered a different pizza and they were both very good; wonderful thin fresh crusts, meats, and herbs, and no huge amounts of unhealthy cheese. We certainly didn't need two as one would have more than fed both of us.
The decor is fascinating! Beautifully done with marble, wood, very interesting lights, a lovely bar area, and a really well appointed patio with a variety of plants and wrought-iron fencing.
This restaurant is very classy inside and out and each staff member really understands and executes excellent service.
As we left, several employees called out "Good-byes," and "Have an excellent rest of the day."
What a positive experience!
Well done, Chef Tung!
We'll be back.
