Eating Italian Gluten Free in London

Eating Italian Gluten Free in LondonRochelle emailed me to alert me to a rave review of an Italian restaurant in London – Cotto.

This was the review from a contributor to the Delphi forum:

I just wanted to let everyone know about my families amazing experience in London this week. We stopped into a Restaurant named COTTO to have lunch the day we arrived. The owner has Celiac disease and is a true gentleman. He personally cooked the best GF Brick oven pizza we have every had. It was as good as if not better than the pizza I had pre Celiac in NYC Pizza places. He also made us great pasta and chicken dishes completely GF. He takes great pride in his food and his care in cooking GF. This is real old world Italian food in a great little restaurant. I can not say enough good things about the food and the owner ! The Restaurant is only a few blocks from the London Eye /Big Ben ( The Westminster train station ). COTTO 89 Westminster Bridge RD

Rave review, isn’t it? Next time we’re in London, I think we’ll check it out. If you’ve been – please let us know how it was for you.

Thanks for the tip, Rochelle!

Lucy is the mother of a coeliac, and has been managing a gluten free diet for her daughter for 20 years - though, to be fair, she does do most of it herself now...

  1. I’ve also been to Cotto, in fact more than once as it’s one of my favourite restaurants!! Not only that I can eat there, with bread, pizza, pasta etc etc but that they are also able to accomodate other friends issues (like pizza without cheese etc etc). Can only say, go go go…

  2. I too go here on a frequent basis and LOVE IT! Lino and Anna who run the place are fantastic, and literally every single thing I’ve had there is delicious and I never have to worry about my allergies because the whole family is ON IT and totally gets it.

  3. Thanks for this review, I’ve been trying to find somewhere where I could have a gluten free pizza without cheese and this seems to fit the bill. Cheers.

  4. excellent news everybody been looking for the wife to eat out in london i myself am not a celiac but eat gluten free

  5. Unfortunately, there’s no website for this resturant, but Italian restaurant Le Querce in Brockley, SE London (easily found by google)is by far and away the best place I’ve eaten both gluten free and dairy free.

    The menu seems small, but their special dishes are a high point with at least 5 starters and 5 mains to choose from on top of their base menu. I could eat almost everything, including a cake for pudding!! For those that can eat dairy, their ice cream selcetion is out of this world!

    It’s really reasonably priced too and well worth a visit. I promise I don’t work there; I’m just one really satisfied customer!

  6. Hi Lucy – good to know! I’m sure this will be useful for people living in or visiting Brockley.

    And I hope you told the restaurant what a good job they’d done…

  7. We are looking for sandwich shops that would deliver to our hotel in the morning before we go. We are staying near Victoria Station on ST GEORGES DRIVE
    Thank you for your help.
