Great food; Great Service

We have enjoyed many meals here in the 14 years that we have lived in Aliso Viejo. It truly has a neighborhood feel, and the service is great. The food is more authentic Italian, and puts most of the chain Italian restaurants our there to shame. It is absolutely family friendly, and you will see... read more

Who knew this was the IT... More

The restaurant was listed on a handout from the hotel but boy am I glad we went there. The food seemed like eating at someone's home. Everything the group had was excellent. The staff is friendly and adds to the experience. One big plus is it has a full bar. The only complaint is I wish they had gelato for... More

Went with friends to Cosmo's and they were raving about the spinach ravioli dish. Just happened to be Wednesday and the Ravioli Night special - $7.95 for a nice dish of pasta. My friends asked for marinara sauce, but I chose the white sauce. Very tasty and fresh! Nice wine selection and my friends were able to get lemon drop... More

The service and food at Cosmos is great. Sometimes it's hard to park as so many want to eat in the family friendly environment.
