Staying nearby for work, walked up to Coco's and enjoyed a great meal sharing some smaller dishes and generous drinks at a a very reasonable price.

Very casual/fun atmosphere, good tasty food but won't go back because of the prices. They're just too high for what it is $32 for spaghetti and meatballs? $8 for a small bottle of Lemmy lemonade? We feel a bit fleeced...

As the title says try the meatballs, they are absolutely amazing. It is a great atmosphere in there, the staff is nice and the selection of food and drinks is spot on. Thanks for a great evening!

Heard of the 'happy hour' pasta so thought we'd drop in. Wow wow wow, pasta and polenta fries...Aaaaaaamazing, oh and the dessert, OML! We will be back for sure with family in tow, we got there pretty much bang on 5pm so no problem getting a table, but from 5.30 starts to get busy. The beautiful staff were so friendly... More

The other reviews of this restaurant are spot on..... It is a wonderful place that feeds the senses in so many ways... The food of course, is great. Its a small menu which is easy to choose from and what arrived at the table met all expectations, but not only that, the service was so good, it was extremely busy... More

We had a really nice meal here. It's not the cheapest place, but was recommended to us by our AirBnB hostess. The polenta chips are an amazing side to enjoy between two. The main courses & wine were lovely & service was really helpful & friendly. Would definitely recommend.

I've been meaning to check out this place for so long - I'm so happy we finally did because I loved the whole experience. The cheery friendly welcome, the delicious food, fantastic background music, great service, quirky decor, I'll definitely be back! We shared tiramisu and crostole with warm caramel sauce for dessert. YUM.

I ate here with a small group in the early evening. Although the staff aren't Italian, it really does feel authentic: red check table cloths, family photos on the walls and, above all, great food. The polenta chips were delicious, as was the pâté starter. I had some really nicely done fish with aubergine, whilst friends enjoyed excellent meatballs. Simple... More
