We returned to Cosmo's to celebrate another year with family from the area. The place was empty of patrons for the majority of our dining experience. Our table of 5 was served promptly by the same waitress that was there last year. She is efficient and courteous. We had bruschetta to start and it was delicious. I stuck with the... More

We stopped in here without reservations before the Judas Priest concert. They were very accommodating, to the point of slightly changing my wife's dish because she's vegetarian. I loved the lasagna! We didn't find it pricey for the quality of food and ambience. What a charming little place.

Ordered the pickerel sea food special again as it was quite good the last time I was here. Two of us had the same dish - it tasted dated or been thawed too long - flat and did not break up in flakes that fresh pickerel is supposed to be. Tasteless on top of it. Appetizer and salad ok. Waitress... More

Have been there now a few times. Always consistent. Have had the veal Marsala but my usual is the to-die-for spaghetti carbonara! Delish! and hubby usually has the special. Whether cosmos penne special or seafood pasta or otherwise, he has never been disappointed. Awesome service from our young waitress - she is always on top of things - and an... More

Finally changed the special sea food dish from the old so boring tilapia to pickerel which my guest and I ate with great relish. Service as usual quite good and the rib sticking picker learned the 4 star rating handily. Keep it up.

Wow , it really doesn't get much better than this gem. When you walk in the door the smell of good food gets you. The dishes are plentiful and delicious . The spaghetti and meat balls are to die for, but so is everything else on the menu . The service is always great and polite . Go hungry

Shrimp was tasteless and appears to be thawed before cooking. Flavour less and absolutely no taste at all. Salad also not fresh in appearance or taste. One of the fellow diners had to send his food back to the kitchen as it was way too salty. Only saving grace is the server who was as usual cheerful and provided excellent... More

Delightful eatery serving good Italian food. The type of clientele (upper crust) that is usually seen there says it all. Only complaint is that they should expand the special fish offering to beyond Talapia only. The calamari would be better fried than served in the sauce (frying rids the fishy taste). The young waitress that's been there for ever is... More

The service here is fabulous. Very reasonable pricing. Offered to take our coats when we walked in, and checked to make sure our meals were to our satisfaction. We were a very large group so there was a variety of orders such as chicken, pasta and steak. All were very good and we had no complaints . I would like... More

Orillia has only a few excellent restaurants and Cosmo's is one of them. The food is delicious, the service is friendly and efficient. Recommended!
