Nice thin crust pizzas. Starters were good. Service was friendly. Price was fair. Clearly very popular. We didn't book, but got their early so managed to get a table, but lots of people got turned away after us for not having a booking.

Having sampled a couple of the fish and chip restaurants for which Whitby is justifiably famous, I decided to have a change on my third evening. The Cosanostra had been recommended by the proprietors of the B & B where I was staying. Service was efficient and friendly and the food was excellent and very nicely presented. The restaurant is...

Very good lasagne and excellent service. We loved the place. Quite noisy on a very packed Friday night but friendly and good atmosphere. Couldn't fault the food.

Wife and I called in without reservation and were found a lovely seat in the gallery looking down on pleasant scene below in this "character" property. Staff uniformly friendly and helpful. Good menu options- we opted for shared starter of mixed meats and salad and were delighted with the quality and presentation. Mains were delicious pasta bolognese for me and... More

My hubby and I had a wonderful welcome and some fantastic food at this lovely restaurant. We both had starters, insalate caprese for hubby and I had king prawns and avocado bruschetta. For mains I had a pizza and I asked for certain things to be removed and something else to be added which was not a problem. My hubby... More

Whitby is the last place on earth that you would expect to have a meal to remember. Whitby as a town is not for me.We were given a table at short notice. A lovely waitress served us and all the staff were very attentive. I read a previous report on trip adviser who recommended the seafood risotto and I totally... More

Absolutely First Class. The food was superb. Forget disappointing fish and chips and treat yourself. I can recommend the garlic bread, the garlic mushrooms and the 'Pollo in Gorgonzola and Brandy sauce'. I just wish i'd had room for pudding so that I could recommend that too. Will definitely be back.

After a few days away up and down the country and a fish and chip lunch in Whitby we were struggling to find somewhere to eat in the evening after a pre dinner drink. A quick browse through Trip Advisor came up with. Cosanostra. Can wholeheartedly recommend this place which was buzzing. The staff were attentive and we soon had... More

We've eaten here twice now; once just as a family (2 yr old son), and once with friends and their 4 month old daughter. I'd recommend booking if you want to eat around 7pm. We ate earlier because of the children and they were more than happy to accommodate us. If you haven't booked and you're they type that hates... More

Super little place this. The problem with whitby is there are too many greasy fish and chip shops and not enough places like this. Great for families and all the staff were super friendly and made you feel as if this was a little part of Italy. Food is excellent and you can expect to eat at a very fair... More
