About Cotto

Since the Romans left, the Italians have been operating a policy of conquering the world’s palate, plate by plate, and traditionally-run family restaurants like Cotto are their failsafe. The welcome is unfailingly warm here, the decor is authentic in feel, with murals on the walls, and the pleasures of the table are taken seriously indeed. Cotto is well-sited for noshing down before or after family outings to the London Eye or Aquarium, and it’s also very popular with business customers during the week. There’s live music on offer, too. As for the menu, try classic Tricolor salad to start, one of more than a dozen pastas, like Spaghetti carbonara, and a main course of simply and beautifully grilled Sirloin steak. Or just opt for a pizza and be happy!
