Went here with my husband and adult daughter. We had a lovely meal and we have nothing to complain about. The server recommended a nice bottle of wine and we enjoyed our starters as well as the pasta. We had to call exactly one month in advance to get the reservation and had tried numerous times more spontaneously for probably 6 months without getting a reservation.
There are a plethora of lovely italian restaurants in San Francisco and the East Bay for that matter that can easily compete with Cotogna. I would recommend it for sure, but there are so many great places that I can't understand the hype. There's Delfina and its sister Locanda, there's Flour and Water (also overhyped), there's Pizzaolo and its sister Boot and Shoe in Oakland, there's Dopo in Oakland, there's any number of others.
