Good food with reasonable prices

The food is good. First thing to be aware of is that the portions are large - so don't fill up on the truly acrumptious bread that they serve before the meal. Plan on sharing. The Ceasar salad is quite wonderful. The pastas are cooked to just the right cocsistancy. Sauces are good [though not... read more

Cosimos has wonderful Italian food and the service is terrific. We stop there on our way back to Washington DC from Maine. From the time you are seated you are at home ... and what's nicer still are the folks from Poughkeepsie who eat there are always willing to answer questions that the wait staff can't. Amazing. I hope will... More

A nice spot. They aren't reinventing the wheel, but that's not a problem! All dishes hit exactly where you expect them to be.

Very welcoming atmosphere! The food is always cooked perfectly and they use nothing but fresh ingredients. Prices are reasonable for quality and quantity of food. The service is always superb!

Great Food! Gone with three friends for lunch twice and twice with family. Everyone was happy with their meals - all different. Great selection of various sandwiches, but favorite was BALT - jalapeno bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato. Antipasto appetizer enough for two and delicious. Hamburgers the best! Prices fair. Staff very accommodating. Spotless. Twice we played bocci after lunch... More

Great Italian food at a reasonable price. Their flatbread pizzas are amazing! Their newly renovated restaurant has a New York City feel. They even have a bocci court.

Do not miss this. Menu varied and delicious. Wait staff sufficiently attentive which means they are there when you want them and not there when you don't. Salads sufficient enough to share. Appetizers as well. I had grilled chicken with pesto and penne. Delicious.

After a long week of looking at colleges my daughter and I wanted to eat somewhere Italian. Cosimo's wasn't very far from our hotel and we enjoyed a delicious meal. We got our carb fix! Delicious food and good service.

Our first experience here was for a client "thank you" dinner a few years ago. When our favorite restaurant in Hyde Park closed we decided to try Cosimo's for a cocktail and appetizer... what a pleasant experience! The cocktails were perfect and a generous pour on the wine. Appetizers were delicious and well plated. Our bartender, Sasha, was terrific! We... More
