We had a great experience at Cotogna. The atmosphere is friendly but fresh and fun, with brick walls, good lighting, and a wood fire grill. We walked in on a mid-week night expecting a wait, but we were seated right away by the courteous staff who found a spot for us. It is a crowded (loud) and lively place, but we had the attention we needed. The housemade ricotta appetizer was out of this world! My husband ordered the pasta all'amatriciana (pork, tomato, and pecorino) which was absolutely delicious and, in my opinion, truly authentic Italian. My gnocchi was light and perfectly made but a little on the greasy side. No room left for dessert. Wish we had anyway-- the pastry chef was recently featured in Food & Wine mag. Reasonable prices for San Fran. I would definitely go back if we lived close by.
