Really good choice of food at reasonable prices. Friendly atmosphere with a great sense of humour. Would recommend booking in advance.

We always visit Cosa Nostra when in Whitby and the food is consistently good. Large pizzas, beautiful pasta and great starters and salads. We've always found the staff attentive without being overbearing, and this was certainly the case on our most recent visit, the Saturday of a very busy bank holiday weekend. We'll definitely be eating here again.

I have visited this restaurant twice recently, the 1st time was on a Sunday lunchtime and then the 2nd time on a very busy Saturday night. I wasn't disappointed on either occasions & I was impressed that as the Restaurant became busier on the lunchtime then additional staff were called in to help out the one, very pleasant Italian Gentleman...

Had another excellent evening meal here during our recent visit to Whitby. We are vegetarian and there is enough choice for us on the menu - the quality of the food has always been top class, the atmosphere is friendly and the staff are efficient and very pleasant. In our opinion it's THE best place to eat in Whitby -... More

What a disappointment this restaurant was. When passing one night the restaurant was full to the brim and looked very appealing so we booked a table for the next night. What a disappointment. yes it was full, but there was no atmosphere whatsoever, it was loud and uncharismatic. service was fast, i got the feeling that it was a 'get... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for the first time in August 2014 and we would definitely recommend it to others. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were all very friendly. We will definitely return when we visit whitby again next year!

This place was good but not great! One of the young male waiters was lovely and friendly the other older guy was a grump on the verge of rude at times. Pizza was ok but not as thin and crispy as it should be, pepperoni was very cheap and tasteless. arribatta pasta was lovely! Would say it was good value... More

We decided to go out for a meal and I had done my research and I had found Moutreys on the internet. We ventured down there (without booking), and unfortunately they could not fit us in for an hour. We decided to leave it as we both hungry and intended to seek out somewhere else. We did not have to... More

We ordered starters of Garlic mushrooms plus a garlic and rosemary pizza bread , both were really tasty ! For... More

3rd visit as good as the first 2 years ago. The food and service was as memorable as previous times. Excellent family cooking served by friendly smiling waiters and waitresses. Even the 'god father' was working hard, looking after us and leading from the front. Every business needs a strong leader and this is clearly no exception. I am sure... More
