The only thing worse than the food was the service. Other staff seemed more attentive, but mine had to be called back to say I wanted a salad as she walked away after taking my entree. No beverage refills as she just stood behind the bar area talking. The Chicken Parm was poor at best. Cut into one breast and... More

My husband ordered a bunch of stuff to go including an antipasti salad. They gave my husband the antipasti on a china platter! They trusted him to return it when he had a chance. How completely awesome is this? THIS is the kind of hometown service that has been sorely missing. The food is pretty good but this place feels... More

This is our favorite local Italian Restaurant. We have been dining at Cosmo's Italian Kitchen for years. The food and service are always outstanding. Great menu choices, a full bar and nice wine selections. Cozy atmosphere for families and couples. You will want to return again and again to this wonderful, friendly Aliso Viejo restaurant!

There are better Italian places. My daughter and I were both disappointed in the quality of the food. I was so hoping for a good Italian place but I have to say "Skip this one." :(

We have been to this restaurant several times with our children and have never been disappointed. Good quality Italian food in a casual atmosphere. Very friendly and competent servers.

I went to order take out. The hostess was very nice and explained things to me. It was a busy night and she told me it would be about 15 minutes. I agreed and said take your time. I went to the Bar and ordered a draft beer. The bar person said to me are you waiting for the take... More

We eat at the Cosmo's off of Oso Parkway in Las Flores. We have never had a bad experience. Recently we used Cosmo's for a small catering job. Wow! It was tremendous. The portions were large and the food was the typical fantastic. We even fought over the leftovers. This place really gets it! The food was ready on time... More

This will be the LAST time I ever go to Cosmo's. I went there to eat a meal - not to be fondled by the wait staff. Here's what happened: every time the waiter would come over to our table, he would put his arm around me, put his hand on my shoulder, rub my back, and so on. Totally... More
