Friendly staff, efficient service and delicious food. We visited twice, as we enjoyed it so much the first time. We had the garlic bread starters - mozzarella and marinara - which were very good (they are huge, so don't order one each!).

We were looking for somewhere to eat on Sunday evening and came across Cosanostra. We didn't really want a meal with chips (again) and so decided to give it a try and I'm pleased we did.
