We picked this for our first night in London as it was next to our hotel and didn't want to walk too far after the red eye flight the night/morning before. We had a lovely meal here. Our native Italian waiter was quite elderly but seemed to keep up with all of the tables on the patio outside. He did... More

Came here 15 years ago and it was good. So I came back again and I am not disappointed. Good food, quick friendly service and amazing value for Central London. So good I am going back tonight!

We met with friends again last night in Cosmoba. What more can I say that I didn't in my earlier review of this wonderful restaurant. Three very different meals for each of us, each superbly cooked. The hospitality shown to us is great, and with the food, means we will always return next time we're in town. Price wise, approx... More

We went there on our first evening in London because of some on line reviews and the proximity to our hotel. The evening could not have been nicer. The food was very authentic and had not been modified to suit local tastes. The wine list had a great selection of Italian wines. We had selected a barbera that was well... More

This is on a side street but bustling due to the good fresh food and friendly service. The lasagna was completely home made and delicious.

Had a reservation in Cosmoba. On arrival some worries start to emerge. Could see a large group had entered just before us but we were seated away from it. Table allocated wobbly but waiter fixed it. Unfortunately the service/attention to detail then slipped badly. I can accept a large group can affect speed of service but basics can be maintained... More

Occasionally you have something at a restaurant that is so good that you know you will never forget it. That was the case at Cosmoba, where I had the best veal I've ever had. It was called Cotoletta de Vitello Alla Milanese. It was pounded thin, breaded and fried - and was crispy on the outside, and tasty and tender... More

Visiting London for a conference, I ate here twice. I had penne amatriciana. It was delicious! The pasta was very well cooked and the sauce was lovely. Highly recommend!
