We arrived Sunday night about 7pm. Greated quickly and seated. Dining room had only 2 other tables occupied and no one at the bar. We brought friends from Rockford for an evening out. This is a great place for very good food in a charming and clean environment. Waitress very attentive. Service quick. Used dishes removed. Drinks checked frequently. The... More

We visited this restaurant at 7 p.m. on a Saturday evening. We were surprised to find only 3 other tables occupied in such a large dining room. We stood at the hostess stand for a few minutes before being greeted by a cook who told us to "sit anywhere and a server will be right with you". We sat ourselves... More

Costa's has an excellent menu, not just the standard pizza and pasta Italian dishes. We always enjoy coming here, and if we order carry out pizza, it's from Costa's. Our son-in-law, who is a Chicago-Italian, said the pizza here is very good, and that's high praise indeed.

We've eaten in, ordered carry-out, and eat at catered Costa functions. All the food is excellent. The price is reasonable and affordable for the cost conscious person.

Costas is the nicest fine dining around Byron! Great food, great atmosphere...lovely for date nights! They cater too and its always perfect. Saro is the best cook around...always authentic.

This is a gem of a restaurant in a little town. The menu covers many things besides pizza. The prices are reasonable and the food is very tasty. The service is friendly and the waitress couldn't have been more capable and helpful. Great place and we will be there again!

I've eaten here a few times. Sometimes we make the trip down from Rockford because my wife likes to eat there. I've never had their pizza, but I like the pasta dishes. The salad and bread are pretty good too. The prices aren't outrageous. I was surprised at some of the negative views I read here. I usually enjoy eating... More

This is just a pizza place, that is decorated nicely on the outside. There is nothing must-have about this Italian restaurant. If you happen to be in Byron, you could do worse for pizza - but not worth making a special trip for.

We have been here 3 times. They are a little slow in seating and serving. The last visit is what killed the place for us. Myself and a friend didn't get what we had ordered. The pizza was not what she had ordered and refused it. I ordered the sausage and beef combo sandwich and only received a Italian sausage... More
