Cotogna never betrays me :)
There are better places in the City for the price point.
It was amazing! It was my boyfriends birthday and they went above and beyond. Best Italian food in SF!
Very loud. Terrific food. Hostess sat another party right next to us with a half-empty restaurant, making for awkward conversation. Two top tables are VERY close together. Watch out for hidden charges like the cordial for the gelato dessert.
It’s my 3rd time at the Cotogna. I like the food and the ambience, but this time it was very noisy and it took them 30min for the pasta. The service was also really bad, the person was not interested at all and I feel for a (lunch) pasta of 28$ the service should be outstanding. Sorry. Disappointed!
Amazing food, great service.
Might go for lunch but not a special dinner, too many mis-steps with service
I had the Eggplant Burrata, Corn Triangoli, and Coffee Budino. All dishes were excellently made and delicious. The Corn Triangoli was one of the best tasting pasta dishes I've had. However, the portion was smaller than I had expected even for a high-end Italian restaurant. We did not leave feeling full even after 3 courses (although we did share the appetizer and dessert).
I think I found my goldilocks spot! Cotogna isn't too fancy or expensive with awesome food and overall experience. I loved what I ordered and the food felt authentic but still comfortably Californian. I would again and recommend to everyone.
The pastas here were innovative and delicious. But what really made Cotogna shine was the service, which was warm and efficient, but also incredibly helpful in our selection of dishes and wines.
Third time at cotogna, wanting to love it based on decent prices and good reviews. I can’t say we were disappointed, but certainly not impressed. One dish out of four was good. The other three very average. Very cramped. Service was fine. And prices are fine. But food did not impress. Have eaten at sister restaurant quince, TOTaLLY different experience , cannot actually compare the two, but I only mention because the chef or owner are obviously very competent/successful, but something is lacking in cotogna in my opinion. Trying g too hard in what is suppose to be simple food done well.
My favorite restaurant in the city can do no wrong. Food took some time to get to the table but there were apologies and a comp on our food to make things right. And as always the food and wine was superb!
The food is delicious.
The food and wine is incredible here! But it seems impossible to get a reservation before 9pm on any day.
I would also love to see more vegetarian options! Both foccacia dishes are our favorites!
Cotogna is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco! I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good food.
Fab food was amazing.
Really Great food and service, but too noisy for a special occasion.
the corn triangoli was to die for! we were so happy our server shared that it was one of his favorites on the current menu. the little gem salad was delicious, too. always happy with the food at cotogna.
the only thing i would change is the noise level. i could barely hear my friend when she was talking. i literally had to learn forward across the table to hear what she was saying.
We have consistently been very impressed with all the dishes we're tried at Cotogna. Don't miss the raviolo or the Agnolotti!
Filled with SF business people for lunch and the tables are too close to have an intimate conversation. The food was imaginative, delicious, and well executed. We will certainly be back!
Amazing!! Not pictured: Gem salad is to die for and so is the gelato cart. Can’t go wrong with this place! Shares the wine list with Quince so if you want some excellent juice, you can get it too!
Very good but a little bit expensive for the size of plattes.
Wow. Slightly put off when, coming into SF I could not find a Rez with Cotogna for our first visit...so took an early time...but stayed, unhurried by staff , for several hours. Best Italian food outside of NYC...because of the quality IMO and generous cocktails in big glasses a plus as well. A must if you are in SF.
Espectacular comida y un gran servicio
Food was great. I’d recommend the meat and cheese appetizer. All of it was really tasty and fresh.
My favorite restaurant on the planet!! The raviolo is to die for. Perfection! Seriously, everything is amazing. From the appetizers to the pizza, to the entrees, and desserts. I had the mint gelato. OMG! It was spectacular. I was dining alone and sat at the bar but still received attentive service the entire time. I highly recommend Cotogna! Make a reservation though! It's worth it!!
EXCELLENT SERVICE, FOOD AND STAFF. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Cotogna seems to always deliver. The Agnolotti del Plin is simply an outstanding crowd-pleaser. The sardines cooked over the fire are excellent; simple but unique. I find the wines excellent and the servers knowledgeable about them.
Fantastic food and service at a reasonable price point.
Très bons restaurant italien. Le plat n’était pas très copieux mais excellent et comme cela il y avait une place pour le dessert (meilleur gelato que j’ai mangé jusqu’à présent).
Great food, great service and excellent wine suggestion
Food is amazing
The service was excellent, the purveyors of food top of the line and the chef's skills impressive.
Delicious, small portion meals (even the main pasta plates) in a vital atmosphere. Wish the portions were larger and less expensive, as everyone in our group received small portion of their main pasta meals. All was delicious but expensive for the small portions.
pasta with morels lacked a lot of salt.
the tuscan fried chicken lacked some sort of accompaniment, receiving half a chicken in a plate without any vegetables or side was a lot of protein.
Rarely miss an opportunity to visit Cotogna when in SF. Great food especially the pizzas and relaxing ambiance.
Outstanding in every way!
Although I hate to admit it, I think I'm becoming more sensitive to noise levels in restaurants. However, if you're passionate about great food (especially pasta!) then this will not dissuade you from going there ASAP. Plus, the service is knowledgeable and welcoming.
Very nice Italian restaurant with delicious pastas in a trendy setting
