If you like Aria Wine Bar in the West Village, you’ll be into Cotenna. They look the same, they have the same menu, and the vibes are only a little less rowdy at Cotenna. And maybe that’s because Cotenna is about one-third the size of Aria. Plenty of people still come here for cheap appetizers and $12 pastas, however, so expect a crowd. This place is on a little side street in the lower West Village, and the location, decor, and reasonable prices make it ideal for either an early-in-the-game date or a casual late-in-the-game outing.
