The first time I went to Osteria Cotto, two words immediately popped into my head: family and Christmas. Delicate and cozy lights, authentic looking vintage plates, a server per table that guarantees fast service – these small details determine the comfortable but upscale ambience of Osteria Cotto. Another plus is that the menu does not incorporate courses but rather large à la carte dishes for sharing, much like in actual homes around the holidays. Big plates also mean you don’t have to order much to be full. For a four person meal, we recommend two appetizers to start, two carb dishes such as pasta and risotto, and for your main course, the Iberico pork chop and grilled branzino. To finish, get dessert – that is if you have room left in your stomach. Starting from last fall, Osteria Cotto also offers new menus developed by the head chef. Quality is no concern.
