Staying in Whitby for the week, we are in a mission to eat in as many places as possible. We've eaten here on previous visits and it is consistently good. Simple, fresh food and good service. The menu could be a little more imaginative - it is rather like an independent version of a Prezzo, but that doesn't make it... More

A lovely place inside, light and airy with lovely pictures on the walls and a good atmosphere. Service was very polite and attentive. The menu had great variety and since we had eaten a lot of fish already, I went for the duck with cherries and my husband opted for the chicken gorgonzola. We both found our food absolutely delicious... More

My second visit to the Cosanostra and won't be my last. Both my partner and I had the fillet steak which was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The accompanying sautéed potatoes and vegetables were the best I have ever had. The staff are wonderfully attentive, well done Cosanostra!

Wow!! We managed to get the last table in the restaurant last November when we went, and thank god we did. The manager had to turn away 4 other sets of diners. It has to be the best italian we have ever eaten at, and we've tried a few. We've been to Whitby many times and never ventured here, it... More

We were looking forward to our meal on our final night in Whitby and I think we were spoilt on our first night at a different restaurant.......Unfortunately although the service was spot on, the sauce on my aubergine and mozzarella starter was over salted to the point where I couldn't eat it and the rosemary garlic bread was like cardboard....
