We've been visiting very good friends in Anaheim for over thirty years now, and for as long as I can remember (maybe not thirty years) we've ducked around the corner from their home to this local favourite. There is something special about walking into a bar/restaurant where the staff know their customers - and their guests - names. This place... More

Saw this place on Diners, Drive ins and Dives and we are glad that we stopped. The atmosphere is family friendly and the food was the best. We had the pizza and spaghetti and meatballs and both were excellent. We wished we could get food this great in our hometown in Ohio.

Great food, nice staff. Place is a little small for big familys or active kids. We usually do take out but love looking at all the pictures on the walls. Pizza is yummy and their mama sauce is soo good. You can tell they make their own pasta in-house.

We just happened upon this after a long day at the parks and wow, were we impressed. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by a friendly hostess (and an autographed photo of Guy Fieri). Service is impeccable, no waiting for drinks , orders taken right away. We could have soup AND salad with entree. Tons of pastas... More

Cozza's is a must stop for Anaheim and surrounding area visitors. Owned and operated by the same family for almost 50 years, there is no other place like it for tasty, authentic Italian food. They make a great burger too if you're not in the mood for pasta. The service is consistently friendly and prompt and the prices are appropriate... More

I was staying in the area at a hotel and noticed that this place was nearby and was featured on an episode of diners, drive ins and dives. I grabbed a take out order of Mama's special pizza and jalapeño fried ravioli. Huge portions and very delicious. The pizza dough was unique and tasty. Tons of toppings and high quality... More

Compared to the bland, overpriced fare at Mouse land it was great to find a real family style Italian restaurant in Anaheim. The food was tasty, the portions good, and the service excellent. Red check tablecloths, walls full of photos, and a good house Chianti completed the score.

If my Italian grandmother owned a restaurant, it would probably be something like this. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but I'm very glad we took a chance and tried this restaurant.
