Hearty meat dishes and tasty pasta take the stage at Cotenna. This cozy Italian restaurant serves an extensive menu that includes seafood dishes, grilled meat and traditional pasta favorites like spaghetti and meatballs. Diners get to enjoy their meal in a cozy interior complemented by wood paneling, dim overhead lamps and walls lined with wine bottles. Chef Roberto Passon ensures the richness of each dish by insisting on only using pasta made in-house.

Cotenna offers a fine selection of wine to pair with its menu. Its simple but casual ambiance makes it an ideal pick for everything, from a mid-week business lunch, to a group outing with friends. Open until midnight during the week, and 1 a.m. over the weekend, this restaurant is also an appealing choice for late night dining. Cotenna is open all week.

I also saw our server move the garbage can with his bare hands and not wash his hands before returning to serving. Our food had not come yet so we cancelled our order and left. I told the hostess and our server what had happened and they were unphased.

Or indeed coffee of any kind....very disappointing. Quiet and food was great... but service felt rushed, even at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. We were one of just a few tables, but seemed like they wanted us out of there.

We made a reservation over a month ago and we’re seated at the bar. It was very loud so it was difficult to have a conversation at the bar. They have heated outdoor seating also, but on this day it was in the 20’s and very windy. I imagine in nice weather that would be a glorious spot to enjoy this delicious food and lovely service. Looking forward to another visit!

The food was amazing. My daughter had the black truffle gnocchi and it was melt in your mouth perfection. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I made a reservation for 2 at 8:15pm. I showed up and the entire restaurant was full. Not a table available for two for at least 30 minutes. The two top in front of us was so young and drunk they had spilt a glass of wine all over the table and the one next to them. The staff didn’t care and let them clean it up. Meanwhile, I was speaking with the hostess, who looked like she just woke up from a nap, who assured me we had our table coming. Long story short, a larger group came in and they allocated our spot to them. They literally kicked us out of the restaurant and told us there was nothing they could do. For a group that prides themselves on service, this was literally the worst I have ever had. No wonder they charge $12 for a plate of food.

Me and my friend were the only ones in the restaurant yet the food seemed microwaved, the Parmesan looked like it had been sitting out for days and was stale, they got one of our dishes wrong and then the bolognese had cream in it which we had to send back as my friend was allergic but did not expect cream in a bolognese. The server was very apologetic but in all it was an unfortunately disappointing experience.

And by far my favourite Italian. Food is fantastic, always consistent. But more so, the staff are always so friendly and make the effort to ensure your experience is 5 star from the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave. Great wine too! I love Cotenna!

I had booked a few weeks in advance in the dining room so wasn't thrilled with eating outside in the winter. Additionally, our food ticket was lost so food was very delayed, but overall food was delicious and our waiter was great + comped us dessert given the trouble.

It's not gonna blow you away, but it's comforting, not expensive, and a cute little place. My only complaint was there should be a thick curtain or vestibule in front of the door so the cold air doesn't come in when it's cold outside.

When I arrived, the place was closed. I frantically started searching for another restaurant and when my friend arrived, we started walking towards Seventh Ave, but then saw lights at a restaurant across the street. Turned out to be the sister restaurant, where we were informed that Contenna is closed on Monday nights, but our reservation would be honored there. Nice, but that information should have been provided, rather than finding out accidentally. Second, the menu appetizers are $14 and the pastas are $16. Specials were encouraged but no prices offered - they turned out to be almost double in price. I don't mind paying for good food - and do regularly. But that price disparity between the menu and specials should be disclosed. While the food was adequate, I choose to go elsewhere as these kinds of behaviors are (pardon the pun) distasteful. There are far better places to get a bowl of pasta for $27, and a rather characterless tuna tartare. I had been to Contenna once before (prior to the pandemic) and enjoyed it. But this was a negative experience and I won't be going to either Aria or Contenna again.

My only note would be to maybe not sit near the door on a busy Friday night. It's a bit chilly but obviously it's not a huge space so someone has to. Other than that, everything was brilliant. Really enjoy this place.
