Restaurant: Cotogna


490 Pacific Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94133
This restaurant is literally next door to Quince, and is owned and operated by Michael and Lindsay Lusk, who also own and run Quince. Michael is the chef at both restaurants.

Cotogna is much more casual and is described as an Italian trattoria. I did not go in, but Dick reports that the restaurant is trendy and casual, with crowded tables. Some say that it is harder to get a reservation there than at Quince.

The difference between the two restaurants is demonstrated on its OpenTable entry. The price of a meal at Quince is described as $50 or more. At Cotogna it is described as $30 and under.
