Delicious macaroons in the dessert part of the restaurant. Tortellini never fails to impress. Pizza has too thin of crust for my liking but has good flavor!

Cossetta’s is one of the most difficult restaurants to review. It is cafeteria style Italian and has won the hearts of the twin cities over the years. The food is good/not great but Cossetta’s has gained institution status over the years and become a destination eatery for many. As someone who has been going here when in St. Paul for... More

I've always loved Cossetta's and my daughter grew up going there often for pizzaMy husband has almost always gotten the sausage and pepper sandwich (which he loves) while I've gotten pizza but the last few times, we've tried different types of pasta dishes. I'm not going to say they're bad, because they're not at all - they're just basic, simple... More

It doesn't get more authentic Italian unless you're visiting Italy, which I have. I think their food is delicious! From salads to pizza, pasta to cannolis it's all good. If you eat in it's a family atmosphere with the hustle and bustle background of a busy restaurant. The prices seem a little steep when you can get a papa johns... More

I've been going to Cossetta's for years. The big treat in college was to get the chicken marsala and always have leftovers. It was like eating a gourmet meal on a college budget. But then I went back as an adult and after the big remodel and I still can't figure out what happened. Did my tastebuds really change that... More

Love the food here and shopping in the market. Long time independent Saint Paul restaurant...great Italian food; there is something for everyone. No table service, but the lines generally move quickly. Ordering a whole pizza is best done by phone. The place is usually bustling.

Cossetta's is a place where love stories may begin! For a food lover like myself the selection is awe inspiring! Grab a tray, walk along the goodness path to pick and choose whatever strikes on your mozzarella heart strings. I decided on the Artichoke Salad (amazing) and the Meatball Hoagie. Would have also taken a slice of Cheese Pizza, but... More
