This is a great choice for an Italian meal. Family, date night or whatever...great place to eat. Can be a bit pricey, especially for the kids meals. But what's a few extra bucks for some good food and time spent with the family.

Excellent food at great value. Friendly staff. Good place to dine with kids. Nice departure from the chain restaurants. Lively and energetic. Not romantic but fun.

Not only is the food excellent but I love being able to support a local business. They have the best bolgenese sauce I've ever tasted!

This is a great neighborhood restaurant.. My wife and I choose this over several other options such as Pepinos or Macaroni grill. Good food in all three but Cosmos has an edge. My wife likes mussels and garlic spaghetti. My favorite is personal size pizza with "the works" topping.

My wife and I have been eating at Cosmos for years. it is a wonderfully small restaurant with a few booths and open seating. We usually eat later in the evenings as Cosmo's caters (literally and figuratively) to community athletic organizations and families. The restaurant can be noisy when full, and particularly with children, but that is what family dining... More

Looks like there is a wide range of experiences here. 3 of us went for dinner on a Thursday night and everything was good. Quickly sat us down, service was friendly, drinks were good. I had the linguine with shrimp. It was really good and I didn't feel overstuffed like some Italian places. The table also got chicken parmesan and... More

Our experience was almost comical - there were 8 of us! It started off with the host asking if we had a reservation, the place was almost empty, but they were able to accommodate us! Our waitress was sweet and on the ball at the start. One of us ordered the Ravioli special and thought she ask for sauce on... More
