The seating is crazy tight. I was banged into all night long by patrons and staff getting past my table. Service was kind of weird. We had 2 waiter and got half the service. How is that possible? and the food is mediocre at the best

You don't expect it, when you walk in the door, but this restaurant has a double personality. On one side you have a bistro style setting with a relaxed atmosphere and delectable food, and varied wine list. You still need a reservation, but if there is room, they might squeeze you in. On the other side you have to have... More

Cuoco Pazzo has great food. It is a little pricey but if you use a Groupon it becomes reasonalble. Nice place to go on a special occasion

We had the lamb chops and salmon. The lamb was as one would expect, but the salmon was exceptional with a macadamia nut topping. The penne that we had with our entrees was also exceptional with a slightly spiced red sauce. We also really liked the meat balls we had for an appetizer.

The Chicken Parm is as good as I've had anywhere else... and a huge portion! Calamari was cooked well, but would order without the peppers next time (although the dipping sauce was unique). The Chicken Portabella had a Marsala sauce that was a bit lacking in flavor, and would have preferred the Chicken battered. A bit pricey, but still will... More

I've been going to Couco for many years and they always serve a tasty and well prepared meal. The atmosphere is sort of old world Italian feel... Like a Little Italy restaurant in NY. You can't go wrong choosing this restaurant for a great Italian meal.

My wife and I somewhat randomly chose this place when we saw that it got okay reviews and was one of the few places to get Italian. We were really caught off guard with how great it was! They gave some amazing free bread and dip followed by some great salads and a REALLY great pasta dish. Our server was... More

My wife used to come here years ago, but this was my first visit -- looks can be deceiving. Old, run-down premises, but the food and service both really deliver. We ordered starters, entrees, a dessert, an expresso, and a Grand Marnier. Came to $100 including tip -- and leftovers made for another meal the next day. Will be back... More
