Great Italian

We had not been here for years and decided to try again during restaurant week. We are glad we did! 3 course meal and glass of wine was well worth the price & visit. Lasagne, Ziti (signature dish) were favs and desserts of white chocolate brownie with ice cream (yum!) and the creamy cheesecake... read more

We went for my wife's anniversary of her 29th birthday. Atmosphere was good, the food was better than I'd expect. I have calzone, she fettucine with pesto sauce. Ask for balsamic to dip bread in olive oil.

Eight of us went to Cosi Cucina for Saturday night dinner, on the recommendation of one couple in the group. We had a variety of entrees, and everyone loved what they had. The ambiance was very nice, the service was even better, and the food was great. The sauces were the key, and they were all first rate. The daily... More

The food was excellent. The service was excellent. The plates were served piping hot - why don't all restaurants do this? I had the trout special - best I have ever had. Companions had pasta dishes which they really liked. Friendly wait staff. All good and reasonably priced!!!

An amazing discovery while driving cross country. We will put this restaurant located in an unlikely spot on the list of restaurants to revisit. The restaurant entrance is in the back of the building, so when we drove in the parking lot to be empty but upon exploring we discovered a full parking in the rear...a good omen. The aroma... More

Cosi Cucina is a fantastic restaurant with a good variety of menu selections. We consider this a favorite choice for Italian food. The calzones (both shrimp and sausage) are awesome. They also offer good seafood and pasta dishes. The atmosphere is nice - not overly stuffy and not too casual. They have an adequate wine selection, as well as a... More

Friendly staff & nice atmosphere. Birthday celebration with my husband. His steak was absolutely delicious but my pasta could have been a slightly larger portion. Still tasted wonderful.

We were in town for a graduation and the graduate selected this place for a family get together. The alacart menu is not large but offers a good range of Italian dishes with interesting twists. Portions are substantial, well prepared and everyone enjoyed their choices. The staff was attentive and very helpful when describing the selections and evening specials.

I know it sounds boring but the take out service was excellent as was the location in the Jordan Creek area. Not overpriced, the salads were excellent. The Chopped salad with Chicken had ginormous pieces of chicken in the salad - much more than a meal in & of itself. The chef must have been new as there were 2... More
