    There are only about four things on the menu that aren’t gluten free. Everything we got was delicious!

    This is the first place I have found gluten free tortellini and ravioli. Amazing! The tiramisu is a must try as well. Ask the owner for recommendations. He's very friendly, knowledgeable, and has Celiac himself. An Italian chef with Celiac! What more could you hope for?

    This place kicks ass. Ask yourself, when was the last time you could order off a full menu? Owner is celiac and watches over the restaurant carefully. Great experience.

    I have coeliac & I ate here no problem! The owner was super friendly, & even asked my friend & I what our dietary restrictions were as we sat down. Enjoyed our first experience so much that we went back a second time over a 3 day period!

    Awesome! The owner is celiac and is also Italian so the food is very authentic. He was very kind and was serving food to me himself once he learned I was also a celiac. They have gluten free bread and almost everything can be made gluten free. They have a separate kitchen prep area and the food was great!

    Unbelievable. First time coming to London and I had no clue where to go for dinner. I used this app and saw that Cotto was just down the street from me (I was staying at H10 London Waterloo). I got the rigatoni matrigiana. Everything tastes so fresh and like it was made in house. It is a small Italian restaurant owned by a man who has been gluten free for 30 years. He is super nice and you won't regret going.

    Stopped here during a trip to London because of all the great reviews. SO glad we did! Menu choices for GF were the best we've seen in a long time & the GF bread was warm & delicious!! Owner was very welcoming, friendly & told us part of the reason he started the restaurant was because of his own celiac issues. He's done the GF community a wonderful service. Very highly recommend!

    A most memorable delicious experience. What a comfort to have a restaurant understand celiac disease especially because the owner has it as well. So many choices to code from without fear.

    Just about everything on the extensive menu is available gluten free. The lasagna was delicious. I haven't had tiramisu in 15 years since I can't find it gluten free. Cotto's tiramisu was terrific! The owner is a celiac also so the staff is well educated.

    I would not recomend for celiac or gluten free people. I have celiac and I was throwing up all night. I had the pizza and im not sure if that was it but something was not right there. They seemed very aware of it but it was just not a good experience for me. I was very sick.

    We trusted it would be gluten free because the owner has celiac and seemed very aware. Unfortunately my daughter was throwing up with severe stomach pains about an hour after eating. One of my other kids with celiac had stomach pains. Not sure, but the GF Pizza either had gluten in it or was severely cross contaminated. Bad night!

    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! The bread is delectable! Almost the ENTIRE menu is gluten free! The owner is celiac and knows all about the struggle of being gluten free. He's super friendly and the staff is extremely welcoming! Definitely recommend for anyone in London. Especially to Americans, because this gluten free bread is better than any I've ever had at home in America!

    Brilliant, friendly service, the most extensive menu I've seen for gluten free italian food, the home made bread was excellent, and it's the first time in a long time that i felt i actually had choices instead of picking off a menu and having to adapt it. even got a proper pudding, not just ice cream which is the usual offering for coeliacs, i had the most amazing home made tirimisu. Totally recommend this lovely place if you are in london, owner is coeliac so totally gets it.

    If there is such a thing as Celiac Heavan, then I have found it! The menu at Cotto is 95% gluten free & the best part is that the food is fresh & delicious!!! The owner is Celiac: I was greeted with a high five when I shared that I was celiac, too. Friendly, clean, wonderful, gluten free, & outstanding are a few words to describe my Cotto experience. Even if I was not gluten free, I would return & frequent Cotto! Btw, I has a pizza on perfect crust & pasta :)

    Owner is celiac so they can do almost everything on the menu gf with dedicated kitchen. My husband and I split two meals. He's not gf and he still thought all the food was amazing. For me, I was in heaven. Everything was just perfection, especially the gf gnocchi. Honestly the best Italian I've had since going gf.

    I went to London on a business trip and used the Find Me Gluten Free app, which directed me to Cotto. It appears the owner was there, and he is also gluten free, so we chatted a bit--nice old dude. I was brought GF bread and butter (yummy!), and got the gluten free pasta & mushrooms with cream sauce, and the coppa caramel for dessert. The pasta was really good--flavor and texture. I'd go back again.

    This was probably one of our favorite restaurants in London! The owner and his son are celiac. The owner himself helped us. We had delicious GF bread, pizza and pasta that they also made DF. Gluten free Italian food from a true Italian ... life can't get any better than this. We talked about this restaurant throughout our trip as we loved it so much. Definitely don't miss this restaurant when you're in London! We are super-sensitive and did not get sick. Highly recommend!

    GF bread was amazing. GF pasta is available in more varieties than I've ever seen, thanks to the Italian chef who has been perfecting recipes for well over 30 years. The pasta dish I had was excellent and we'll be going back soon to try the GF gnocchi.

    Great gf bread, mediocre gf pizza, terrible dessert. I am not positive but I think the waitress brought me a regular dessert instead of gluten free, she barely spoke English. I was sick for awhile after that meal.
